Hi, hi friends! For many people, August means back to school. It can be stressful going back to school after a long restful summer. The first week is always madness with no parking and lots of people all over campus. It can be dreadful trying to do drop-ins and hoping to get added in. The last thing you want to worry about is your outfit, but don't worry! We've put together some easy looks that won't break the bank (so you can still buy text books) and you'll be sure to get an A+ in style!
Hello August and Hello back to school! Growing up I remember the best part about going back to school was being able to go school clothes shopping with my mom. I have the greatest memories of those times with her spending hours with her in stores buying and trying on new outfits for the school year. Especially that first week of school and being able to show up in your brand new cute clothes! No better feeling than that.
When I think of the first day of school I want to look cute but still comfortable since its the first full day back after a long summer vacation. For my look I chose these adorable mustard pants, as soon as I saw these I was obsessed with them! I paired it with a black tank that I knew would tuck into the pants nicely and not bulge at all. I also am pairing it with a jean jacket just because it may be a little warm outside but classrooms can get a bit chilly so having a cute jacket to keep warm is always nice!
To accessorize it I chose a simple neck scarf to add a little bit of a fun detail. I also would choose some simple gold earrings and maybe some fun gold rings to tie it all together, but not overwhelm the neck scarf. For shoes a good strappy sandal would be fun with this if you were taller but because of me being on the shorter side I would opt for a shoe that has a little bit of a heel to give me some height! Here's to a great new school year!
One blink and summer break is already over! It was fun while it lasted but it is time to start getting prepared to hit the books again and the first way to prepare is with your wardrobe! Stepping on campus on the first day of school in a new cute outfit is always my fav!
I wore a yellow off the shoulder top to compliment my skin tone and really make it stand out and dressed it with a light washed distressed pair of jeans! When I'm at school comfort is my main priority and these two definitely makes me feel that way!
I decided to wear a gold coin layered necklace to add more to my outfit but still keeping it casual. I love this outfit because it's a simple back to school style but yet I can still look cute in it if I decide to hang out with friends somewhere after class!
The time has come for back to school shopping! There's always excitement for what the new school year will bring and also shopping for the new items that will get you through all the seasons to come! The outfit that I picked this week can be customized for hot or cold weather and that's what inspired me!
When I go to school I like to pick low maintenance pieces so that I can feel as comfortable as possible. I styled our navy jumper with a white and red striped turtleneck top. This jumper is awesome because its loose fitting and is comprised of a nice thick opaque material, you also have free and full movement with the adjustable shoulder straps. You can style the jumper with a top according to the appropriate season, I chose the this striped turtleneck with fall in mind. I also love the contrasting colors of the two pieces.
I accessorized this outfit with a navy blue fedora style hat and a black and gold scallop necklace. I think that the navy hat coordinates well with fall fashion and takes the outfit to a more style influenced level. The gold tassel necklace is also a great statement piece and reminds me of something Madewell would sell for twice as much money. My favorite aspect of this necklace though, is that it's adjustable and can be worn a bunch of different ways with a bunch of different outfits. The final result of this outfit is studious and stylish! Just because you want to be comfortable doesn't mean that you have to compromise your style!
In the spirit of back to school, I had to create a look that the high school me would approve of. I was always dressed "casual comfy cool" and I wanted to bring that feel to my style this week.
I went with a pair of light wash, stretchy distressed jeans, and an ultra comfy pink lavender bamboo tee. I tied the top on a knot, to show the coordinating belt, and to give shape to the relaxed fit. Since the belt had silver hardware, I decided to continue that pattern with a silver layered necklace and silver bouton bracelet. I continued with a white bouton cuff, multicolored teardrop stud earrings, and pink "cool kid" shades. I finished the look with an oversized gray cozy cardigan and floral print canvas shoes.
In this look, I'm ready for indoor and outdoor temperatures, and I'm comfortable enough to stay focused on my studies.. although I can't guarantee that for other students checking out my style!
Even though I have been out of school for three years now I still wake up in a panic thinking I'm late for class or that I forgot to study for an exam. While I was school I also worked many part time jobs so it was important for me to dress comfortable but also with some effort if I had to work after class. For this outfit I went with these brown corduroy skirt and navy ruffle blouse.
The structured skirt stays down so I don't have to worry about it blowing up while I run between classes. I also really like the big pockets, perfect for holding my chapstick. The navy blouse is a nice contrast against the brown color. Navy is typically a more polished and professional look but the ruffles and lace neck detail give it a feminine touch.
Since this look is really girly I topped it off with my favorite linked heart necklace. I also paired it with my brown oxfords for an extra studious look. The best part about this look is that it's great for after school activities because it's just so comfortable!
Thanks for dropping by and we hope you enjoyed this Back To School theme!
See you next time!
