Woo-hoo! It's already time for another back to school outfit post. Picking out an outfit for the first day of school can be a hard decision, but with the help from my style and theme oriented looks, you will be more than ready by the time school starts. Today's look takes on a whole new style for back-to-school, and I hope you enjoy it!
Girly & Fun
If you are looking for a flouncy, fun look for the first day of school, a dress is the go-to. I wear a lot more dresses and skirts than the average person, because I find they can be comfier than jeans and can look professional and put-together. This dress combines the popular tie-up top with a fun fall color, making it great for back-to-school. Here is where everything is from:
With a side view it is a lot easier to see the height and style of the shoes I am wearing. I hate wearing high heels, and you will often find me wearing sneakers with every dress. Despite my loathing of uncomfortable shoes, I found these platforms and fell in love. They go with any outfit, and give some height, without your feet being vertical to the ground. Plus, it gives an aura for slightly larger feet, which is perfect for people with very tiny feet.
Here is a closer look of the rings I am wearing with this look. They came in a set of 5, with these three gold colored, and another two which are silver. I loved these rings because they are delicate and simple, similar to all the jewelry I wear. I am picky with jewelry and I don't want like anything bulky that will annoy me throughout the day, because I'll end up taking it off after 5 minutes. Therefore, I tend to choose thin, light stands that feel like I am not wearing anything, but add a hint of color to the outfit.
I hope this look inspired you in picking out the perfect look for the first day of school. If you found that this look didn't fit your style, check out my links below this post for other outfits, each with a different style and theme. Let me know in the comments if I haven't covered your style yet, and I will aim to do it either this year or the next. There will be one more outfit in my back to school collection for this year, so keep your eyes peeled on social media. Have a happy day!

Back to School Outfits from 2015
Welcome to the last of three back-to-school inspiration ideas. If you would like to see more different types of outfits, please comment below. This last look is made from mostly thrift shop steals, and together make a perfect preppy-style look. The combination of lace, flowy peplums, and cardigans give off a smart vibe. A great first-impression for your new teachers!
Anything peplum automatically reminds me of preppy style. That is the center of the outfit. I styled it with a layered necklace for a professional look. The cardigan is perfect for colder weather. Heels or flats work equally well with this outfit, but I chose sneakers to give it more of a school-ish vibe. Here is where everything is from:
Top: H & M
Sweater: Hello Kitty Brand
Bottom: JC Penny (Arizona brand jeans)
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack (similiar)
Here is a closer look at the necklace and t-shirt. I actually bought the t-shirt at a second-hand store, called Plato's Closet. The store it was originally from is H & M. The layered necklace is not three seperates, but one necklace that looks like three. Despite that fact that I adore this necklace, it would be nicer if I could wear each separately.
This is a close up of the jeans and shoes. The jeans were also found at a second hand store, called Small Threads. The brand name in the jeans was Arizona, so I knew they were originally from JC Penny. My vans are a year old and still in great condition so I highly recommend them as sneakers for the fall.
Back-to-school outfits are officially over! I'm sure most of you are now back in school, but I won't be until September 8. Let me know in the comments if you want more back-to-school themed posts, and what they should be about. If you decide to re-create this preppy outfit, tag me on Instagram or Twitter so I can see it. I would love to see your look, whether or not it is tomboy, simple, or preppy.
Question of the Day:
What grade are you entering? (or are you graduated?)
Today is the second of three outfits to lead you to school stardom. For this look, I paired a light white sweater with black leggings. I added a bunch of rings from a set, and threw on turquoise converse for a pop of color. This look is great for those who tend to like simplify and comfy items. I always like to add a pop of color when wearing outfits like this, although it is not necessary.
The top from H & M is plain with a hint of detail at the bottom. The light material makes it perfect for fall. Leggings are a staple item for any closet, and are usually available in any store. Here is where everything is from:
Top: H & M
Here is a close-up of the detail in the shirt/sweater. Personally, I think it is incredibly detailed, but doesn't give too much pzazz. The rings, which you can now see better, are a set of 10 different sizes. There are midi rings includes which I adore.
That is the conclusion of my second back-to-school look. If you decide to recreate this look, please tag me on Instagram or Twitter with your pictures. I cannot wait to see them!
