Back to school is here… can you believe it? Sadly it’s been a while since my mom has taken me back to school shopping (we always went to Birmingham… Galleria and Summit what’s up!!).  BUT, this time of year it’s all about preparing for fall while staying cool.  That “transitional” time of year where it’s not exactly fall, but we’re kind of over the summer pieces in our closet.

I popped in Nordstrom last week to check out some classic pieces, and I had a green military jacket on the brain.  I found this one and I love love love it! It runs big so I recommend sizing down.  I also found some really great flaresthat were high-waisted, which is great for those fluttery off-the-shoulder tops we’ll all be wearing well into September.

I thought this was the perfect “back to school” look, casual but put together just enough. Stylish but doesn’t say, “I’ve had this outfit planned out for a week!” Effortless, cool and comfortable.

  1. Looking gorg as always! Love that look!

    I went to Auburn and SO many of my friends were from Bham so we frequented the Galleria and Summit a lot 🙂

  2. Love flared pants– wearing some today as a matter of fact! Also love the purse.. I’m in search for a new white one, but I really like a bright white. It’s not been an easy search!

  3. Oh those shopping excursions to Birmingham – fond memories indeed. 🙂 We always came home with way too many bags – oops! I remember us being so excited/relieved when they FINALLY started carrying MAC makeup over there. We had been wearing it for years! Good times with good daughters! Wishing you safe travels sweet girl.

    1. Awwwww!!! Is this your mom?!
      So sweet ? Hi Kathleen’s mom! You did such a great job… your daughter is so talented and creative 🙂 She’s bringing the world joy through her keen fashion sense and sweet spirit!
