After a long blissful holiday, we all must go back to our daily routine. Some of you might be going back to school and I can only thank God that those times are behind me, but it's still fun to dress up as if I am going to a class. Hence, here are some of my essentials for a back to school outfit that will make your first day of school less scary.
(1) Short sleeves shirt
This shirt is the epitome of a shirt. I am in love with the oversized cut, the cool pastel green color, and especially the mirrored rabbit. Thanks to Chicnova for this pretty top! This item has enough cuteness to get me through the long hour of lecture :)
(2) Knee-length skirt
I preferred the one with an A-line or a circle cut. I tend to avoid tight skirts or a mini because I don't think I have enough brainpower to concentrate with the confusing formula AND making sure I don't flash my undies. This lace-y number is the perfect combo with the top. The texture gives enough sophistication to the outfit while the color oozes a calming effect. Again, this one is also from the kind Chicnova.
(3) Cool backpack
Let's admit it, backpack is not the most graceful nor the most chic bag there is. But, you have to admit, this underrated bag does have plenty of space for your text books and lunch box. There are so many hip backpacks out there. From neon, studded, even with tribal prints. I choose a neutral brown color with some prints to add a little bit of character.
(4) Trusty Flats
Ballet flats, slip in, loafers, brogue, oxfords, you name it. Anything with no heels are comfortable enough to walk in all day long so you can get to your classes with zero trouble. I personally love a soft ballet flats but my super girly outfit screams for a little more structure so I beckoned my trusty vintage loafers.
(5) Delicate Accesorizing
When it comes to jewelries, I choose ones that has enough sweetness but won't get in the way of my busy schedule. For example, I often avoid long necklaces with big pendant because I tend to run when I'm late and those pendants can hit my face in a blink of an eye. Rings are the easiest but big rings often make it difficult to fish out your note books from your backpack. So choose wisely. Make sure to wear a watch too so you won't be late for a test.
And that's all from me. Five essentials for your back to school days. You might also want to try paying attention to your hair. Bows, headbands, or even a beanie can make their way to your outfit and add even more stylish points. You can also give a fresh air to your socks by buying them in cute prints or even try a lace details.
I hope schools and works and your usual daily routine are treating you well. Worry not, we still have Christmas and New Year to look forward too!
Have a great day, all!
