WHAT TO WEAR: Back to the Books

It’s that time of year again! Summer break has ended and it’s time to hit the books. Coming back to school can get a little depressing, but on a positive note, fall is right around the corner which means pumpkin spice lattes are back. At least there is an excuse to shop for that rad back to school wardrobe, right? I love coming back to school and seeing what new trends everyone is strutting and seeing their best outfits worn the first week.

I spotted this Fashionista the first week of classes and thought her back(pack) to school look was spot on. The items in this look are fairly simple, but when they are put together they accent each other quite nicely. I love that the eye is drawn to her stylish backpack making this accessory a main focal point. The brown straps on her backpack complement her brown strap shoes and I am able to notice these details because her shirt is not overpowering or too busy. She finished this look off with a little pop of purple in her necklace.

Even though it is pretty hot at the beginning of any school year, I love that she wore jeans to class. I think it makes her look very professional and well polished. I really like the saying “you are what you eat” and I think the same principle can be applied for “you are what you wear.” If you want to be successful, then you should dress that way.
