Back-to-school breeze

The weather right now is nothing but sunshine and cool Back to School Breezes(TM), tricking me into obsessing about all of the freshly sharpened pencils, crisp lined paper, and gross-yet-amusing Garbage Pail Kids stickers I could put in my designer Trapper Keeper. The smell of a new pink eraser gets me every time.

In honor of homerooms past, I decided to wear my version of an old back-to-school look: a boy’s oxford, cropped blue jeans, and a summer-y knit–with a little vintage snakeskin thrown in for good measure.

Thrifted oxford shirt & halter, Forever21 jeans, vintage shoes and clutch.

Fall is my favorite.

    That outfit is the perfect homage to back to school time! And I’ll be attempting to duplicate that hair for sure.

      @Tamu: The hair was pretty easy! I don’t have the skills for anything too complicated, trust.

    I love this look. The halter and the bracelet are fabulous. I can never find anything great like this is GA:(

      @Caramelnaps: I’m SURE there’s good stuff in GA. Trust me, if I can find stuff in Ohio…

    By the way, I have the same halter you have on. Got mine from Victoria Secret years ago 🙂
