WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

It’s that time again already? Summer is still going strong but we got to start thinking about going back to school. What comes to mind when I hear back to school is outfits! We start thinking about the trends for fall and what it entails. Of course, you want to prolong the outfits you currently have and incorporate what you already have in your closet with the transition of the seasons. So when you go from summer to fall, I start to think what can use from what I’m already wearing.

This summer in Bellingham wasn’t as hot as we all had hope. There were some colder days and then a light bulb triggered. Perfect timing for scouting out beautiful fashionistas stunting their style. This gal in particular was striking to me with her grey tones outfit. She wore a grey sweater dress from Forever 21 that was perfect for a chilly day when it wasn’t as sunny. Here is where I found a similar sweater dress to the one she was wearing. The shoes she wore were black booties from Forever 21 with just a little heel, enough to walk across campus without hurting her feet. Let’s be real, walking across campus is nothing near fun. Lastly, she wore a black floppy wool hat that she got from Hollister Co. but here, I found a similar one, not only to cover the sun but just in case it rains, she is prepared.

One Simple Change: One simple change would be changing this outfit from back to school look into a weekend night out. Why not dress up the sweater dress with a fur vest and some colored or patterned tights. This will keep you cozy yet comfortable when going into the weekend!
