Monogram Friday... Read on, you'll get it!

Remember when when you were in college and you had a t-shirt for EVERY OCCASION OF YOUR LIFE???  I had fraternity party t-shirts, band party t-shirts, my girls' school (to be PC:  women's college) party weekend shirts, other college (especially if I dated a boy who went there) t-shirts... OMW, I'm surprised we didn't have one for every time we breathed!  I have since removed myself from all of these worn items. (Except for one, and that's another story!)  I am just not a t-shirt kind of girl any more.  Guess that's because I am a (very) early 40s lady now.

Thus, the dilemma arose every school year for me:  the school t-shirt dilemma.  Every Friday, we teachers are allowed to wear jeans - as long as we are wearing a C******** C***** Elementary t-shirt or a shirt that has the school name on it.  (And those are usually those asexual non-preppy polo type shirts.  Yuck.)  I know this promotes school spirit, and I know that it is a little treat we are given.  I just don't do t-shirts.  And as much as I love, love, love my school, I just don't do t-shirts.

So what's a preppy teacher to do?  Well, I came up with an amazing plan last year. (And my wonderful principal did approve it!)  You see, I love a good monogram on a cute scoop neck Eddie Bauer or Tarjay tee.  So... take a peek at what my monogram is every Friday!
Score one for preppy teachers everywhere! 
(And a big smoochie for my BFF who did the monogramming...)

  3. You are Brillant! Hope you don't mind if we copy for our own schools. I'm not much of a collared shirt gal- the polos they order always look like something a coach would wear. I think coaches are great, but I am not one. I want to wear my fitted 3/4 sleeve tees from Talbots or Tarjay. I have several in school colors, but no insignia or print. Love this idea.

  7. You took me right back to my college days and shortly therafter when we had drawers stuffed full of t-shirts. Overflowing, because we wanted to commemorate the occasion, or in my case, the production. These days it's caps. Precious can't bring one into the house unless he takes one out. He will never take out my favorite: purple from Southern Proper with the black Lab on front.
