Goodwill and Savers .... except for undergarments...LOL I haven't had to buy much of anything new with these choices...... Svaers is an especially nice thrift store we have ,it's a chain and it's unbelievable.Oh,and shoes, while I sometimes find what I'm looking for 2nd hand, I have to go outlet shopping for those (sierra trading post, nike outlet,etc) I have gotten Keens,Dansko,Birkenstock, Teva,etc etc at the thrift store.....

Lots of places - from second hand stores to Target to Kohl's and Penny's to TJ Maxx and Marshalls to Nordstrom (and Nordstrom Rack is wonderful).

I have a personal shopper at Nordstrom. It is NOT budget. It IS wonderful. Best part, she helps my husband pick gifts for me.

I've been struggling with this question myself quite a bit lately, as my pre-student-teaching experience required me to buy some dressy clothes to wear to teaching. I'm a few years younger than you, but since for a major part of my day I'm teaching upper high school students, I tend to try to dress a couple years older than my actual age.

Jeans: I pretty much only buy a.n.a. jeans at JCPenney. They go on sale every once in a while, so I tend to stock up when they're on sale. If I'm buying jeans somewhere else, it's because Old Navy or Vanity had a really good sale and I really needed jeans and couldn't wait for the next a.n.a. sale at JCPenney's.
Dress Pants: JCPenney again. I like Worthington brand: classic and of good quality, and often on sale. Maurice's has nice dress pants, but they cost so much I can't usually afford them, even with the 20% off codes Maurice's likes to give out.
Shirts: Depends on whether they're dressy or casual. I buy most of my casual tops at Old Navy when they have a good sale. I got a bunch last year during a late spring/early summer sale that are still in great condition. I like Vanity for tops, too, but I tend not to buy much from them because they don't have as good sales. If they send me a good promo code or ad for a good sale, I might buy a couple things. Dressy tops I pretty much exclusively buy at Maurice's. They can be expensive, but they're also high-quality, and Maurice's isn't stingy with 20% off promo codes.
Skirts and Dresses: Skirts I don't wear a whole lot of, but I like Old Navy for low prices and good quality. Dresses I love in theory, but struggle with in practice. Problem is, I'm 5'10", and a lot of cute and current dresses are way too short for me. I pretty much only buy dresses that either are in stores in my size so I can try it on, or have an okay length listed online. I love the dresses online at JCPenney, but they rarely have dresses in stock in my size, and a lot of the dresses sold online don't have lengths listed (I'm returning two cute dresses I got on sale because they were way too short in person). I buy dresses at Maurice's when they have a really good sale; otherwise, they're too expensive for me. I like the dresses at Old Navy, too, and I love Old Navy's dress prices.
Shoes: Shoes, much like dresses, I struggle with. I wear a size 11 dress shoes/heels and a size 10.5-11 in flats/sneakers, so I often struggle to find shoes I really like in my size at a decent price. I buy my heels at DSW, which seems expensive but often has good sales and is very good to their rewards members. But if I find a cute heel or pump at another store in my size at a decent price, I'll probably buy it just since they're so hard to come by for me. I buy non-heel dress shoes as well as sneakers at Payless or Famous Footwear depending on who has the better sale and the cuter shoe. Flats I only buy at Payless, since in my own experience they're about the same quality anywhere I go and Payless tends to have great sales.

One of the best things I've done for saving money on clothes is signing up for email lists for any retailer I shop at. Almost all of them will send you some kind of discount as a reward for signing up, and will email you with discounts as they release. Yes, it means a few extra emails in your inbox, but I get my best deals that way. I also look online for coupons that I missed before I buy anything, and I shop through the bonus cashback rewards center on my credit card as much as possible.

Hope this helps!

Casual clothes-Gap and Kohls
Most of my clothes are Ann Taylor (not loft). Always buy on sale-usually marked down a couple times and then will buy when they have an additional 30-40% off.
Also, TJ MAXX and Bloomingdales. Sometimes I get the same thing at bloomingdales on sale for cheaper than at tJ Maxx.

Christopher Banks has a lot of clothes that are really appropriate for "school teacher type dressing" - that line between office dress that is too dressy for school and casual. Their sale racks are usually chock full of bargains - and I've walked out with two jackets and four shirts for under $100 off the sale racks.
