WHAT TO WEAR: Back To School

Who doesn’t get excited about buying a back to school wardrobe? Back to school was always a childhood excuse for Mom and I to take a long Gap trip or on more exciting days, the outlets. Either way putting together the perfect first day or first week outfit can be extremely nerve racking. First impressions can be very important and especially when it involves your peers.

This Fashionista does first day perfectly with a simple, casual, cute ensemble. Her basic white crop top is a great piece to have in your wardrobe because it can work for so many outfits and be used for layering in the winter. She combined it with a neutral tie-dye maxi perfect for blending summer into fall. Maxi skirts are always a safe bet, as they eliminate worries about dresses or skirts being too short or not appropriate for more conservative situations. To accessorize, this Fashionista nailed layering with both her bracelets and necklaces. She makes them look effortlessly thrown together but perfectly thought out. All of her jewelry marries natural and feminine seamlessly. The dainty bead chain necklace has a vintage-looking rustic pendant while the leather cord necklace has a pink smooth stone. Her studded jelly sandals are a comfortable way to stylishly start school. They are also very on-trend as Valentino, Rebecca Minkoff and Givenchy all released versions of this shoe.

One Simple Change: To take this look from day to night, add a pair of strappy printed wedges or even switch to a more bold statement necklace.
