Hey there everyone!
Can you believe that it is August already? Oh my word, the summer just went by so fast. I move back up to school in just a week and a few odd days - CRAZY.
So, I thought that I would share my dream outfit for the first day back to school! As you may or may not know, I have an on-campus job that has me around a lot of perspective students - along with their families, alumni, and other important people on campus. So, I usually try to look nicer than many of my peers who just throw on sweats and tees.
This dress from PersunMall is GORGEOUS. Even though I usually avoid white (I'm kind of messy) I would suck it up for this dress. That collar - so swoon worthy. Also, I would need a sweater because I'm always cold - I swear, I'm an 80 year old woman sometimes. Plus, a bonus for this sweater is that I can kind of add an element of blue and gold to my outfit - which are my school colors. Yeah, I'm nerdy like that. Finally, flats are a must now that I'm living a 7 minute walk away from campus. No heels for me this year!
I have been dreaming about owning a vintage Pan Am for a long long time. Probably ever since Rory got one for Lorelai on Gilmore Girls. So adorable. Plus it is the perfect size to store the things I need for the day. I have really wanted to try this new CoverGirl lipstick duo. You can't go wrong with red lipstick - plus, I have found that ones with a gold tint in them make them very wearable for school.
Also, that bag would definitely need "The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath." I have been looking for a copy of this book forever. I really love 'The Bell Jar', so I have been wanting to read her journals for awhile. I'm really cheap when it comes to book, so I usually buy books used or rent them. There is a great website that I have just discovered called campusbookrentals.com. Plus, for every rental fee, they donate some money to Operation Smile - an organization that helps those who need cleft lip surgeries. Can't get any better than that, huh?
If you are heading back to school soon, enjoy your last few weeks of summer!
