Style Look Book: What To Wear For Back To School

DSC_0582editAugust, the Sunday of Summer, has now officially ended and you know what that means — back to school time! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been spending my summer building up a new wardrobe to show off when I get back on campus (apologies to my wallet).

As I’ve gotten older, my style aesthetic has changed a multitude of times, and I definitely haven’t stuck to only one look. My wardrobe currently consists of a range of styles; from sporty outfits to lounge wear to bohemian ensembles. But there is one thing I know for sure– when I walk around campus I want to look good doing it. Here are a few of my favorite back-to-school outfits for this upcoming semester.

When it’s too hot for clothes but you can’t be naked
Walking to class can be a trek sometimes, especially when it’s 90 degrees outside. Most of the time I just hope people can’t see me sweat. By pairing a breezy tank top and some cotton shorts together with my white Converse, I can stay cool and still look cute.

When a venti iced coffee can’t even motivate you to wear pants
Some days, I wake up in the morning not feeling the whole “dress up” vibe. I’d rather put on some stretchy pants, a big t-shirt, and somehow muster the motivation to make my way to class, but something deep inside always nags at me to at least put in a little effort. So for this look, I paired a slouchy cotton v-neck and a lace halter bralette with some black leggings. Of course, I had to slip on my favorite pair of Birkenstocks. Comfort times 1000. This cute bucket bag is one of my everyday essentials.

When you have things to do and people to see
When I have afternoon classes, I tend to dress up for my post-class activities. That way I can jet out of the classroom to hangout with all my friends. On these days, I tend to go for a trendier look so that I’m dressed nicely for wherever I’m headed. I paired my favorite Topshop jeans with a loose tank top, which I tied at the end to crop it. These little booties are the perfect shoes for a day-to-night switch. This gray tote bag is my go-to for class – it fits everything I need for the day, like my laptop and textbooks!
