Back To The Grind

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

 As we all know, the end of August is notorious for back-to-school shopping, and like any good fashionista, you must not skimp out on your back-to-school fashion lesson! Here are some of my favorite looks to start the year off stylishly. And remember ladies, always dress for success! 

My motto is, if you've got to do something, you might as well look good doing it! Because I don't know about you, but whenever I look my best, I feel my best. 

 Show some school pride in style by wearing your favorite jersey or school Tee and tossing on a blazer over it. Add chunky accessories, a hat if you're feeling bold, and colorful sneakers, and you are well on your way to the top of the "best dressed" list. 

Sweet and girly with a preppy flare is perfect for your first day of class. I love the blouse layered underneath this floral sundress because it turns "nerd" into "nerd chic." The sweater brings the look down a notch to appear casual and appropriate for class. And hey, we all know classrooms can be pretty chilly! 

Brighten up any classroom with a little (or a lot) of colorful tribal print. It's attention-grabbing and fun and makes you look extremely confident when worn all over, as shown. I love this set because each piece can be worn together or alone, and these vibrant flats makes treks across campus totally doable! 

Pair your favorite go-to dress with chic sneakers for a look that's a little bit of everything. It's comfortable, practical, stylish, and bold. Just make sure your sneakers don't clash with your dress pattern. Keep it neutral in either your shoe choice or dress selection. 

A romper is the perfect way to appear polished and put together when you're in a pinch. Wear it with flats or sandals during the day and strappy heels on Friday night. It's versatile and oh so comfy - a college staple. 

A few of my own looks that make the grade 

Enjoy this last week of August everyone!
