School ‘N Skirts.
No more laying in the sun and sipping ice tea pool side. It’s back to slouching in florescence lighting and chugging liquid caffeine desk side.
It’s back to college.
But don’t let the daunting early wake up calls, long lectures, or the late night library sessions kill your fashion.
Start the school year off right with a wardrobe that will be sure to set you on the road to academic success… or at least style.
The highways are surrounded by deep green foliage and that means two things, I’m back in Connecticut and it’s the start of my second semester of my junior year. I’m kinda in love with college in New England because as a Texan, having four distinct season is a real marvel.
Arriving back on campus right at the end of summer, I am experiencing my first season of the year with some surprising New England heat. Trying to stay cool and still look class-professional can be a bit of a challenge especially when you seem to always be crammed for time.
So I like to keep it simple. For the first day of class I went with a cutesy yet effortless look compiled of a few of my go- to pieces. I chose one of my favorite go-to floral skirts on bottom. And went with a short sleeve button down on top to create a cool and crisp look.
For my other pieces I kept the Gossip Girl look going with a navy blue cardigan. And then went with my short cut maroon boots to compliment my skirt choice and give a little edge to the school-girl look.
In the concluding days of summer, I found it fitting to incorporate a little BoHo feel to the look too. So I went heavy on the wrist and finger candy. And kept track of time the classy way with my new favorite Michael Kors watch.
I finished off my first day of class outfit with a couple of gold layered necklaces and gold flower studs. And for make-up I kept it real simple with a few strokes of mascara, blush, and tinted lip balm.
School is in session. So grab your books, your pumpkin-spice latte, and your floral skirts and get to class. Because with a wardrobe like this, the year is sure to be full of smiles and leaps of joy.
