When I was in school, there was always one "cool teacher." You know, the teacher who shopped at J. Crew and Banana Republic and Tiffany's...the teacher who was super stylish and down to earth...the teacher who NEVER did the breast tuck.

DEFINITION: Breast tuck - When someone, typically a teacher or maternal figure, pulls her pants (or skirt) up so high that it's almost as if she is blousing her breasts into her pants. Thus the name - breast tuck. I made up this definition in high school and haven't found a better fit for it.

Well, I felt like I could totally get the "cool teacher" stamp of approval today. I mean a silk blouse with an a-line skirt is CLASSIC "cool teacher." It was very fitting too considering that I led a workshop for one of my sorority's mentoring groups on Saturday. Hi-five to all the well-dressed teachers, this one's for you!


  1. Hair tutorial, PLEASE! Are those flat twists? I'm dying to know what the back looks like. And,chic ensemble!

  2. Lol, the breast tuck never heard or seen such a thing on any of my teachers. You look so cute Monique and you already know I want that sweater and blouse. I love and miss Anthro at this very moment because of you!!

    ps. Hair tutorial definitely needed!! ;)

  3. You look gorgeous! Definitely cool teacher. And I third the tutorial request.

  4. Thanks everybody. This style was done on a whim, and it's 1 week old in these pictures. I'll see if I can get to record a tutorial for it sometime this weekend!

  5. @eveofanewera - YES, they are flat twists and the back is pinned up sort of french roll style :)

  6. Love it, love it, LOVE IT! You look so fab here. Lovin' the hair and the colour/pattern combo. Great outfit!

    Peace & Love,

  7. You look awesome here! definitely getting a cool teacher vibe. Oh, and I know what you mean about the "breast tuck". Last year my English teacher (who coincidentally is the only "cool" teacher in my school) was on maternity leave and our substitute would wear high waisted pants with with her breasts tucked. It was a sight to behold LOL. :-) Best wishes!!
