With summer coming to an end, we all know that means a new school year is rapidly approaching. I myself won't be returning to the classroom until January for the spring semester, but the majority of college campuses are already busy welcoming incoming freshmen. While your education should be your main focus, we all know that the beginning of a new school year also means reuniting with friends you haven't seen all summer and more importantly, new clothes! Every since elementary school, I can remember planning my first day of school outfit weeks in advance. In my younger years that usually consisted of some sort of skirt and shirt combination with crisp white tennis shoes. By the time I reached high school I traded in my tennis shoes for wedges and four inch heels. I'm sure many of you are thinking heels are a bit much for high school, but I wore mine faithfully; most people didn't even realize that I just barely make it past five feet I wore them so much. I myself didn't even realize how short I was until one day I wore flats and was referred to as "the little short girl", but I digress. This look, with the exception of the blouse, is comprised of some of my most prized thrift store finds which made it very affordable. A nice pleated skirt always makes me feel collegiate and I think that floral top compliments it well. The booties have a short heel but they are still very comfortable which makes them perfect for walking around campus in between classes. If your returning to school I pray that you have a blessed and productive year!
