cool for school


In college, my roommate would tease me about getting excited and planning my outfits for the first few days of school. Even though I'm not a student anymore, I definitely still wish I was, and I can't help but get excited when this time of year rolls around. There's something about a new pencil box filled with brand new supplies that just exhilarates me!

So here I am in a quintessential back to school outfit: plaid skirt (will be wearing this over and over this fall) and a denim jacket (around the waist because it's definitely still way too hot for that). And I actually remember going through so many pairs of plimsolls in my elementary school days, although they were not nearly as cool as these floral-printed Keds. The pretty necklace is my attempt at looking a bit more sophisticated-slash-my age, and this gorgeous piece was a steal I picked up from J.Crew Factory. They have such awesome jewelry there at reasonable prices! Do you still remember any of your back to school outfits?

  8. This is a great outfit for back to school or otherwise! I love the cutouts on the blouse! I used to plan my back to school outfits for weeks in advance too. I guess that's why we're bloggers now! LOL

  16. Your back-to-school outfit is edgy girly + comfy. I quite like it. My old back-to-school outfit was a boring school uniform consisting of a white long sleeve tunic sort of top and a long bright blue skirt, plus white shoes. Haha, terrible I know :)
