Next month, I will be starting my placement in the school where I will be student teaching. I'd like to get a few new pieces to start building my professional wardrobe. Finding plus-size dress pants and suiting that fits me is going to be a challenge. Luckily, summer weather in the Central Valley continues until October, so pants and blazer weather is still a ways off. I've already done posts on stripes and florals, so today I'm going to feature bold solids (one polka dot slips in). Here are some work-appropriate dresses, skirts and blouses I'm checking out.
