10: Cobalt Colorblocked and Teaching Talk.

I wore this Outfit on my first day of teaching a Marketing+Management Course. I don't have a teaching degree but I do have an MBA where my area of field is Marketing with an emphasis on International Marketing. I have also tutored in a variety of Social Subjects and English, and taught ESL part-time for middle-school, high-school and college level before. So, I found some temporary work where I am teaching a Marketing Strategies course for adults as well as an English class (ESL) for 10-12 year olds. Both are taught at a learning and training center that offers many courses - some of which you get a certificate for, at the end. Lucky for me, they allow sleeveless tops, which was necessary that day because at the current room where I was working, the air-conditioning was temporarily broken.

This Outfit marks 1/3rd of the 30 Outfits I should remix during this Summer (well, late Summer) 30 for 30 Remix Challenge, but as I said, I will probably have more than 30 Outfits, since there are several days where I change twice and I am committed to doing this challenge for 30 days straight. And I am finally wearing this Fuchsia Tweed Skirt I included and my Cobalt Ruffled Shell. I love both of these pieces. They are definitely dressy, more work-wear type of clothes, but I can make them work on casual days too, if I want. I think together they colorblock to perfection. What do you think? Isn't Cobalt+Fuchsia a Beautiful Color Combination? And you know I love me some Cobalt and Royal Blue. I even wore it yesterday. Thank you so much for the many compliments, sweet words and E-Mails I received yesterday about my outfit also. You definitely made me feel proud and confident of putting a shirt-dress over pants and I will try it again.

  4. My background is in Marketing and I used to teach college (community college) as a p/t job in addition to my regular f/t job. I loved it. Cobalt and fuchsia looks great when it is color blocked! I also really love that clip you have in your hair.

  5. Good for you for finding the time to teach the marketing and English class. Isn't it great when you get to start dressing for a new occasion, especially a teaching position which really lets you play with work style. Great outfit and good luck with the 30 day challenge!
