There’s something so nostalgic for me about back to school time. Even though it’s been a while since I’ve been in school myself and Lily is still too young as she’s just shy of 2 years old, each year I love seeing all of the cooler weather fall fashion in stores, aisles of school supplies and the anticipation knowing cozy sweater weather (with a pumpkin latte in hand) is just around the corner! It also brings back happy memories for me of forming new friendships and the excitement of a new year ahead.
Everyone wants to put their best foot forward on their first day back to school whether they’re in Elementary School or heading off to University. While skinny jeans, a stylish top and a cute pair of boots/shoes are basics for back to school attire when it comes to young ladies, it’s the accessorizing and finishing touches that set one apart from their classmates. Today I’m partnering with Macy’s to share some back to school fashion inspiration focusing on accessories that will polish off any back-to-school outfit with a teen or University gal in mind. However, any woman could easily add these accessories to their wardrobe.
Neutral pieces are always a great investment and can be worn throughout the year for many years to come. A statement ring, playful phone case, flattering pair of sunnies, a classic watch and a cool earthy eye shadow palette by MAC (currently 45% OFF!) will add the wow factor. Polished nails always finish off a look and I love the edginess of these starburst studs. My favorite selection though is an everyday must-have, a great handbag! Bucket bags are definitely on trend right now but what I love most about this one (which is seriously marked down and ends today) is it hits a few different style points: gray & camel neutral combo which can easily pair with white, brown or black; fringe tassel drawstring closure and while it can be worn on the shoulder it’s also a cross-body bag. It wins my vote for versatility. Perfect for a gal on the go!
Whether you’re headed back to school, are already established in your career or are a stay at home mom, have you found yourself also getting caught up wanting to freshen up your wardrobe with the back-to-school vibe in the air?
Thanks for stopping by!
