^^ I am definitely popping two collars and wearing a #VonDutch sweat band on my arm. #howdidIwinbestdressed? #Whydidmymomletmeleaveforschoollikethat? #somuchbleach
^^^ Yes, that is me, Caitlin and Courtney recreating a poster. Twice. In my dorm room. Bahhaha!
I have always loved school. I loved picking out my first day outfit for Saint Mary's College (Ralph Lauren polo, white with a navy horsey to match SMC colors-- collar popped, obvi. It was 2005, forgive me haha! And my favorite Lucky jeans. OH! And my lanyard as a necklace. #winning).
This love of first day outfits hasn't changed. I went to J. Crew a few weeks ago to find the perfect dress for our first full day of school. I am head over heels for this brushstroke dress (which is currently on sale!). It comes in a skirt, ballet flats, a scarf and shirt, too. The print is even more beautiful in real life. Also, it's the best silk-- it doesn't wrinkle! DOUBLEPLUSGOOD: you can use your teacher or student discount at J.Crew!
Earrings: Old Stella and Dot.
I walked nearly 10,000 steps today in these beauties (on my first wear), and my feet still feel great at the end of the day!
Remember the shirt? Now it's on sale! NEED!
What did you wear on your first day if you headed back to school or working as a teacher?
