Back to School Style: dress for success!

Hello loves! After a year of finishing college, I still find it weird that I am not going back to school this semester. It sounds incredibly nerdy, but I love school! What can I say, I am one of those people who has a knack for learning. And of course, I always look forward to adding a few pieces to my closet when the fall semester comes around.

One problem I always face when the weather starts to get cooler is that I am always cold! So jackets and sweaters are my go-to pieces to say the least. I love wearing a leather jacket to add some edge to my look. I chose to pair my leather jacket with a wine colored floral top and white jeans. Even after Memorial Day, I always wear white jeans. Might as well make the most of all your pieces right?

It is tempting to wear sweatpants to class. However, any time I have ever done this, I get restless. Sweatpants make me anxious to get back to my bed rather than pay attention to a lecture. Instead of sweatpants, wear jogger pants instead! You can dress them up with your favorite bodysuit or long sleeve shirt. I love wear heels with jogger pants but if you are not into wearing heels at school, wear your favorite ankle booties instead! You can view the origianl post here.

Additionally, dressing well as school is only part of the equation. You also have to have reliable technology and gear to keep you focused through the semester. Having a bag that can carry your school supplies + your laptop is essential. I have been in the market for a new laptop bag myself. The one that I have now is from Aldo and it has lasted me about 5 years. Below I have listed some of bags that I have had my eye on.

I hope this post was helpful. College is an amazing time for you to shine your brightest. Dress for success and keep your expectations high with your studies. To everyone starting a new semester, best of luck! You are going to be amazing!
