Back To School


Senior year really snuck up on me. For as long as I can remember, I've been prepared with my outfit sitting out and ready to go weeks before it was time for school to start. That wasn't the case this year. I tried going shopping three separate times, and still ended up in the mall the night before school started shopping until 45 minutes after it had closed. I still have no idea how I wasn't escorted out of that place by a security guard! Luckily though, I found my first day outfit! And I couldn't be happier. 

It was so hard to find an outfit because I put too much pressure on myself! I told myself I had to wear a dress that had to be a specific style that had to be from a certain store. To make things even more difficult, I found the perfect Kate Spade jewelry before I even knew if my outfit would match it. Yes- I bought a dress, but truthfully, it's nothing like I imagined. It's better! If I had gone shopping with an open mind, I think I would've found what I wanted much faster. I ended up randomly grabbing this dress off the sale rack at Banana Republic and fell in love when I tried it on. I'm still shocked that it even fit! I'm usually a 2 in dresses, and this was a 4 petite! I'm 5'9, so have never even considered trying petite clothes on. But hey, it works! 

The great news is that I bought everything either on sale or at the outlets. The bad news is that it's a little more difficult to find the exact pieces online (so I apologize for the terrible links!).
