Greetings, dear reader! As a result of various factors (including both my laziness and my creative restlessness), I am sharing not one but TWO “outfit of the day” styles with you. These are from the first week of school.

My awesome circle skirt and favorite t-shirt can be seen here

Quick tip: I wear loose-fitting t-shirts often. I got inspired by Molly Ringwald and rolled the sleeves up a little; I find it gives the shirt a cuter fit and takes barely any effort!

Comfy and still lookin gooooood!

A lot of people try their best to dress well during the first day(s) of school. But I try not to go over the top. It sets up unrealistic expectations for the rest of the year, and by January people are wondering what happened to the cute person they met on the first day. I try to go for a more accurate representation of my style as a whole. It also keeps me comfortable in otherwise unfamiliar, overwhelming situations.

Until next time,

Keep it classy

I am super excited to show off a surprise DIY I did today at the library! Thanks to my favorite librarian I got to make an adorable fascinator a la British royalty.

I don’t want to share instructions because this wasn’t my design, but I hope you enjoy it and are inspired to do your own simple DIY today.

I just finished celebrating a magical occasion during which many fabulous items are exempt from sales tax in honor of the returning school year. Seeing as I pretty much shop for clothes year-round and I won’t have any school supply lists until school actually starts (plus the fact that I’m incredibly picky), I didn’t get too many items. But I wanted to share what I did get because who doesn’t love talking about shopping?

I purchased the following at Kohl’s:

I got the sweater because I love layering big sweaters over dresses and it’s really lightweight (it never gets cold where I live). And I’ve been in search of a cute water bottle that I can use every day and hopefully not lose. Plus the paisley matches my backpack.

I got mostly school supplies from Target:

A cute planner (which could benefit from some decoration, perhaps), some adorable composition notebooks (every thing is better in mini) and some concealer, which I’m trying for the first time, to cover up the dark circles that I KNOW will be growing under my eyes by the second week.

I got a tee shirt dress from Old Navy, which I intend on using for layering (the possibilities are endless and already coming to me…)

It looks like olive is going to be a big color for me this year.

And finally, I got some fake flowers from the dollar store to use in a DIY:

Stay tuned to see how I use them……

Are you excited for school? I am always SUPER excited and this year is no exception. It’s gonna be totally awesome.

 

Keep it classy,
