WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

As the holiday festivities come to an end, every college student has a scary realization. Class is starting soon! Even though no one loves the early, cold days of the spring semester, a cute outfit can change all of that. I know one of my resolutions coming into 2017 was to put more effort into the outfits I wear to class. It can be tough after a late night of studying to find something mild put together at eight in the morning when all you want to do is wear your pajamas to class. The simple act of throwing on a cute top or some strappy booties can make you feel ready to take on the day and inside of encouraging you to crawl back in bed.

This Fashionista put together a cute but casual outfit, perfect to start the new semester. She chose a pair of medium wash jeans and a flowy top. She also grabbed a pair of low heeled, black booties and a monogramed necklace, a staple of every southern Fashionista! This outfit is perfect for a day in the south when there is basically snow on the ground in the morning, yet it is sunny and 75 in the afternoon. It is also great for a long day of classes, since it is breathable and comfortable. The only thing to add is a sassy backpack and cup of coffee, and this Fashionista is ready to go!

Trust me, I completely understand it is hard to look fashionable when you have a million different things on your plate and all you want is sleep. Taking that extra five minutes in the morning to put on a pair of distressed jeans instead of yoga pants or a funky sweater instead of a torn sweatshirt can really make a huge difference in your attitude for that day. I really believe dressing for success every day can make a major improvement in your motivation this new year.
