Casual Pineapple :: back to class

Monday, August 25, 2014

I finally got my hands on some pineapple print and created a casual yet playful look around this hot summer trend. Bonus: the look hits the nail on the head in terms of back-to-class style. 
This tiny pineapple print tee is adorable for layering.  
A jumper is a classic silhouette that always reminds me of the back-to-school season. In elementary school I usually started the year in one of these dresses layered over a white collard blouse. Now, 12 years later, the jumper is still a standard piece in any wardrobe but I've given the look a personal, more mature spin.
These oxfords are probably the comfiest shoes I own. They're the ultimate style for back-to-school due to their preppy yet contemporary look combined with their versatility. But best of all, they dress up a simple pair of jeans while dressing down a skirt or dress. They're my shoe of choice for class! 
This pop of yellow in my bracelet compliments the pineapple print while brightening up my blue jumper. Pink, yellow, and pale blue is such a fun color combination. 
This Kenneth Jay Lane necklace is one of my favorites because it's pink (surprise, surprise) and it can actually be worn two ways. I prefer it the long way...
But my mom likes it this shorter way. Either way it adds some sparkle to any outfit!

What a whirlwind this summer has been! I can't believe that classes start tomorrow and soon my senior year of college will be in full swing. It's funny to think back on the last three years and see how much has changed (my style, my goals, my confidence). Freshman me is completely different from senior me and I just know that by the time I graduate in May I'll feel even more mature...and maybe just a little more prepared for the real world (let's hope)! 

Here's to my very last first day of school!

  15. So exciting that you are starting your last year! Wow! This is truly a fabulous first day look! I adore jumpers and I love how good they work for any age! Your pineapple top is so sweet, who doesn't love the fruit trend trend and this is a perfect piece to layer! As for the necklace I think it looks wonderful both ways! :)
