ALL IN THE DETAILS: Totes for Texts

It’s that time of year again. Time for classes to start, stress to kick in and most importantly, time to show off all of your new back to school clothes!

I know this time of year stresses me out, but it also excites me to see the new styles on my college campus. What better way to start school off on the right foot than to carry your books in style?

Already within these first few days on campus, I’ve been seeing plenty of large tote bags. This particular Fashionista is carrying her textbooks in a two-toned, white and gray Michael Kors tote. The cutout sleeves on her black, fitted top give the outfit some flare while still looking appropriate for the occasion. I also love this Fashionista’s choice of printed shorts because they allow her to look cute and stay comfortable when sitting at her desk all day. To top off her back to school outfit, this Fashionista is wearing a pair of black, leather Tory Burch ballet flats which I honestly love because I never would’ve thought to wear ballet flats to class. I think they make the outfit look very classy and conservative for a great first impression with your professors. Lastly, her watch is a perfect accessory to top off the overall look, rather than over-accessorizing with too much jewelry.

How To: Want to get this perfect first day of class outfit? Grab yourself a three-quarter sleeved, black top and pair it with your favorite loose, printed shorts. Last but obviously not least, top it all off with your favorite big tote bag to carry all of your classroom essentials!
