Teaching Chic and Cheap

A not-so mild mannered high school teacher by day; by night a budget-conscious fashionista in some seriously hot shoes.

Pink Stripes and Pearls

I found these boots at Marshalls over the weekend. Originally marked $170.00, I picked them up for $49.99. They're perfect for fall; warm, buttery leather with buckle and zip closures, in a gorgeous tan color, neutral enough to match almost everything in my wardrobe. The stacked heel is a nice addition, too. At 5'2", I need all the extra height I can get. They aren't the most comfortable boots ever, but I can get through a solid school day before the weight starts to bother my ankles. All in all, I'm pretty happy with them!

My students loved this look. I even got a gold star from one of them ;)
