back to school outfit

School is back in sesh!! I can’t believe summer has breezed by so quickly, but let’s be honest – who isn’t ready for some fall styles?  I always feel ready for the boots, scarves and sweaters… even when it’s not quite ready, know what I’m sayin’?  SO, similar to this post when I shared my back to school picks, this is definitely my kind of back to school outfit.

When you’re heading back to school you want to look put together but effortless – like you didn’t spend the time laying out all of your accessories on the floor and making sure your nail polish matches your handbag.

What? I never did that…

I recently discovered Monsoon and they have so many great staples. With a great pair of high-waisted black skinny jeans, classic peep toe booties and an everyday chambray, you can put together so many outfits and I styled them three different ways – simple + chambray around the waist + a simple scarf.

Thanks so much for reading and any of you students – you know you have to tell me what you decided to wear on your first day back! XO –

  1. I love these relaxed, back to school styles! And what’s more versatile than a chambray shirt, white top and black skinnies (love the high waisted version by the way – I bought myself some high waisted skinnies this week and I’m waaaay obsessed!). Also, your makeup is dynamite!! xx

    1. Yyyaaassss Carly – high waisted skinnies are where it’s AT! Glad you’re loving yours!

  2. When its the first day of med school year 2, the most I can muster is leggings and a sweatshirt #realtalk. But this look would have impressed everyone!

    1. Well you’re 800x smarter than me so I think you get a free pass. Good for you Dr. Toal!!

  3. You are killin’ me with that purse! I am DYING for it. Maybe it’s available in store?

    And I also just wanted to say that I only recently discovered you via insta and after weeks of insta-stalking followed your snapchat and finally your blog, and I think you are just about the best thing since sliced bread! Love your easy style and your fab attitude!

    1. Fun fact, I actually called the store to try to get it in a different color but they didn’t have it – maybe your store will be better! And THANK YOU x a mill for your sweet words! Sounds like we could be soul sisters, gf!

      1. Kat, I actually found it locally in cream. I’ll totally go get it for you and we can do a swap. 😉 Oh wait, was it cream you were looking for?

        Total soul sisters! Love, love, love you!

    1. Oh if it makes you feel any better I haven’t been able to match my nail polish in YEARS.

  4. The link to the t-shirt won’t work—ack! is it forever 21? (i looked but they don’t have the white online…). i’m really digging those pants too. LOVE.

    1. Oh my gosh you’re right! I don’t know what’s up with that. It’s a heathered v-neck tee from Forever21!

  5. Love those shoes! I have been on the hunt for an affordable pair! How tall is the heel? I couldn’t find that info on their webpage. Thanks!

  6. First of all I LOVE your blog so inspirational and fun! First day of school I think you might be proud I rocked some boyfriend style overalls, with my signature white convers!!! I love this whole outfit and might have to give it a try myself!
