Back To School, Back To The Backpack

Back to school is here! And although I am bittersweet and anxious about the new academic year to start, it is time to face reality and plan this year’s series of fashionable weeks!

Since fall doesn’t officially arrive until the end of September, we will still be forced to wear cooler clothes for the classroom heat. But that’s not a problem! We can still look back to school ready, while keeping up with the summer weather.

For the first day and first few weeks, a simple striped tee and shorts are a must. You can spruce it up with your favorite adidas, converse, hair and new backpack. My small black bag is perfect for any necessary school items. The long straps allow for shoulder comfort and the distressed material adds a vintage style! I got mine at Marshalls, but there are similar ones here and here.

Whatever your back to school look may be, have an excellent beginning of the year!

Taking The Cool To The Waterfront

Taking The Cool To The Waterfront

Fall is officially in the air! And when I mean officially, I mean it is getting chilly! But I am loving it! Below are just a few pictures of today’s OOTD by the waterfront!

A simple fluffy cardigan from Primark, Tee from Forever 21, Leggings from Nordstrom, and some White Chuck Taylor’s make for a comfy and cute Friday afternoon outfit!

Apples, Apples, and More Apples!

Apples, Apples, and More Apples!

It’s officially fall! You know what that means… Cool weather, crisp leaves, warm sweaters and apple picking! It’s probably one of my favorite activities to do in the early fall season. It’s not too hot, and it’s not too cold; it is just right! So, what does one wear to this festive event? I have the perfect outfit just for you!

I decided to wear a cotton, jersey dress and a long cardigan. When it got too warm, I could simply tie the sweater around my waist, and I still had a really cute, versatile, and on trend look. I wore a long key necklace to accessorize and some flat sandals. Nothing too fancy!

I adore this trend and style for fall. The wrap around sweater adds a practical and cool feel to a simple dress. You can change it up and even add a flannel. This creates a whole new look for another day!

My dress is from Francesca’s (Similar), Sweater is from Nordstrom (Similar), Necklace is from a small boutique, and Shoes are Aldo.

Most of the items may be out of stock, but I listed similar pieces that would work too!

Hope you all are enjoying fall so far! XOXO

Polka Dots On Polka Dots…

I am definitely not one who is afraid to be bold and a little crazy, especially with my fashion. Marilyn Monroe once said, “I’d rather be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” Fashion is about wearing things that make you feel happy, comfortable, and confident. If that means layering on polka dots, then so be it!

I wanted to go for a more comfy, relaxed look. This is perfect if you’re running errands, doing homework, or just feeling lazy! My leggings are very similar to a pair I wore in my previous blog. They are knit with black polka dots. They cut off right at the ankle, which are perfect to wear with boots. I then layered my sweater with the “Pardon my French” logo, which adds a cute silly touch and combined it with a jean jacket for ease and warmth. I finished off the look with my short, spiked boots, a white enamel watch, and my hair pulled half up in a clip.

I am in love with these type of leggings! I love how you can dress them up or down, or even sleep in them! They are the perfect purchase and super cheap!

Change it up and be adventurous! Pair a crazy pair of leggings with a silly sweater and you are ready for any time of day!
