Even though I am officially graduated from college, I can’t help but jump on the “back-to-school” bandwagon. There are so many fashion and style opportunities that come with going back to school that an adult doesn’t quite get. Like you know that amazing feeling you get when you walk down a school hallway looking fabulous as hell.
Or in the case of when I went to San Diego State University (Go Aztecs!), Aztec walkway was your real life fashion runway. Even though I don’t get the back-to-school jitters, I do get the strut the lonely hallways of my office complex and show off my cute back-to-work outfits.
Here are my must-haves for getting your learning on this fall when you go back to school:
An interesting and artsy phone case that is worthy of striking up a conversation with a stranger
One neutral carry-all tote bag for your laptop, books and pencils. Perfect for pairing with a cardigan and boots for when it gets colder.
A chevron dress for when you get an invite to a fun party from the cutie that lives down the street
A fun over-sized graphic tee or tank that you can pair with leggings and a scarf for those days when you don’t feel like dressing up
A crocheted top that is just a bit flirty and a tad sweet
At least one monogrammed accessory
A fun printed flirty skirt – back-to-school doesn’t mean you have to hide under black, brown and navy layers
A pair of quality riding boots
Anything tribal print
A preppy-inspired cardigan
