Back to Cool: Pretend You’re Going Back to School!

Every year around this time, I start to think about going back to school. I guess it’s natural since I spent so many years there, but it’s been a long time since I actually hit the books!

Waiting for the school bus on the first day of school.This is the annual “back to school” picture that my sister and I posed for every year with our neighbors. That’s me in the middle with the blond hair, puffy sleeves, and yes, a mullet. It was the eighties, what can I say?

Thankfully, the mullet is gone, but my desire for a new fall wardrobe is not. So, how about we pretend we are going back to school and do a little shopping?

Back to School: Pretend You are Going Back to SchoolAlthough inspired by school, this outfit is 100% grown-up!

  1. You may not fit into Garanimals anymore, but you are never too old for a cute striped sweater featuring an adorable giraffe.
  2. This white woven chain bracelet is a fun take on the friendship bracelet. Buy an extra for your bestie!
  3. Stay warm this fall by topping off your outfit with a tweed schoolboy blazer.
  4. You can’t go back to school without a great pair of jeans. These cropped skinny jeans will ensure your place on the best dressed list.
  5. Fall is all about layers, and you can’t go wrong with this sweet polka dot printed shirt.
  6. Highlight your inner nerd with these cute eyeglass stud earrings.
  7. These red penny loafer-style flats are totally adorbs! You and your BFF will be LOLing ADL. Get them … YOLO!
  8. Store all of your books, or work papers, in this gorgeous Frye campus satchel. This bag is definitely on my back to school wish list.

OK, I think I may have had a little too much fun with this! So tell me, do you get back to school fever at this time of year, too?
