WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

Back to school season is here, the time when every store starts to fill up with fall essentials and we start stocking up on our jeans. However, the warm weather hasn’t stopped yet and I hope it doesn’t anytime soon. So, because the summer weather is still blessing us with the ability to wear skirts instead of sweats, this Fashionista’s outfit is perfect for the back to school season.

One of my favorite things about transitioning summer clothes to fall is layering. This Fashionista took a green summer dress and layered a light wash denim jacket over it. A denim jacket is great staple piece to have in your wardrobe because you can layer it over pretty much anything. It’s one of the best pieces to have when you want to turn any summer outfit into one appropriate for fall.

It always happens to be that classrooms are always at arctic temperatures and the weather outside is 90-plus degrees. That’s another reason why this outfit is perfect; when you walk outside, you can tie your jacket around your waist, but, when you step inside the classroom, you can throw it back over your shoulders to keep you warm. This jacket and dress pairing is so versatile because you can wear it to class or work, and then later at that group project meeting.

One Simple Change: Need a girl’s night out after the first few weeks of working hard at school? Switch out the dress for a flouncy skirt and a simple tank top (don’t forget the accessories!). Throw on your denim jacket and you’re set for a night out on the town!
