Today, after a glorious three months of being off for the Summer, I went back to college for my Fall Semester. I’d been pretty nervous since I am starting at a new school, but I’m excited to say that it went pretty well!
I mean, it’s only been one day so maybe check back in with me later this week. Haha! Anyways, I figured what better way to celebrate a new transition than with a new casual look for you all. Something you may not know about me is that when I’m home I’m typically in a pair of workout shorts and a tank top. When I’m out I tend to dress nicer, but I’ve never had too much of a middle until I went to college.
I knew I wanted to be presentable daily, but I didn’t want to look so nice that it seemed like I was about to go out or to an event in a Business Calculus class at 9am. Haha! I knew I needed to find a balance and that’s what this outfit is a representation of. What I term “dressy casual.” I am a huge sneaker girl and I’ve actually been wanting a pair of Adidas blush pink shoes for awhile. When I found these at Zara for half the price I obviously had to snag them! How cute are they?! I’ve been wearing them nonstop!
Lastly, the whole “button up denim skirt” trend this Summer/Fall has been a harder one for me because of my long legs. The skirts are always wayyyyy too short on me, ugh! I found this one at HM though and the length was perfect. I rarely wear shorts to class just because I tend to get super cold so this skirt is a great alternative to my typical boyfriend jeans. I also scored this fun cold shoulder top at HM too. I actually couldn’t decide if I loved it or hated it because of the ruffles, but once I put it on and styled it I quickly began to adore it. It’s not your everyday cold shoulder top, so I love that uniqueness it has.
Would you wear this to class? Let me know in the comments below! Hope everyone else’s school year has been or is off to a great start!
