Back in my grade school days, this was always the point in the summer when I would start getting excited to wrap up my summer activities and get back to school. My mom would take my sister and I for a “back to school” shopping trip and we’d pick up a couple of things for the upcoming season. Then we always went home and immediately put on a fashion show for my dad. I loved the anticipation of starting off the school year in a new outfit. These days I still get nostalgic for that September energy. It isn’t quite the same without such a drastic shift in routine like we used to have, but it’s still fun to dress for it. This outfit reminds me of a more modern, grown up version of some of those fall looks I would try to achieve for school – classic colors, crisp denim, and minimal accessories.
