OOTD: Autumn Essentials

P1120100 P1120115 P1120105 P1120097I’m beyond psyched for fall fashion. All I need to do is find a few good flannels and a suitable jean jacket and I’ll be all set! This outfit is made up entirely of purchases I’ve made this summer, most of which will carry over to my autumn wardrobe.

Back to School: Outfit Planning

The first day of school is fast approaching, and as much summer work as I still have to do, what’s most on my mind is what I’m going to wear! On the first day of school everyone breaks out their best new dresses and jewelry, so for a few days the school is swarming with fashionistas wearing nice shoes. By the second week of school, everyone has given up on looking nice, and the sweatpants begin to reemerge from the closet. This is when I start wearing all my nice new clothes, because if I wore them during Week 1, I would be lost in the sea of  fashion!

So my back-to-school looks are casual, comfortable, simple outfits, tied together with my staple red lipstick. I used Polyvore to model some of the looks I have in mind, with pieces similar to those in my closet. I hope you enjoy them!

black and white and red and summer

Why do I waste good outfits on a fifteen-minute coffee run and then wear the same five boring outfits to school all the time? Seriously, it’s a problem. At least today, I had the decency to take some pictures of my nice outfit so the world could see it anyway.

Remember how I said I was going to keep up with posts despite my busyness? Yeah, sorry about that. Tomorrow I take my last AP exam (Biology! Wish me luck. I feel morbidly underprepared.) and then I’m home free for basically the rest of the school year. My two hardest classes become donut parties and laid-back project planning periods, the days keep getting warmer, and all my after-school activities dwindle to a close. I’ll finally have time to read Storm of Swords and spend time with my friends again, and I couldn’t be happier.I can’t tell you how excited I am for summer. I’ve made countless plans with friends, and because so many of them are headed off to college in the fall, we’ll be sure to close out our time together with a bang. From stargazing to windsurfing to adventuring in the city, I’m sure I’ll have plenty of adventures to share here, and plenty to cherish by myself. It’s been one roller coaster of a year, and I can’t believe how much I’ve changed in such a short period of time. But it’s all been for the better. I haven’t been this happy in god knows how long.
