Back to School!

Okay, so it took a couple days, but here are two of my outfits of my first week back to school. My knee has healed up enough so I can wear my various sandals (I was tripping over them before I had my gait back). I'm a little lucky, because I have evening classes, so the heat isn't a huge issue. 


I got this bag on a recent excursion to Marshall's with Kellie-- $25!! 

This burgundy Grecian-style from Target has never been one of my faves, but it was raining and my first outfit would have looked a hot mess. So I threw this on, wrapped a belt around myself, and wondered why I ever disliked it. Further validation occurred on campus, with three different compliments from nice people. The owl was a gift from my little brother's girlfriend, a souvenir from Spain. 


My lack of exercise is starting to get to me; I put this together after hurling clothes around my room and then laying in the mess bemoaning my lack of exciting ensemble options. There are those days that you just feel blah, and this was one. I normally jog it out, but I had to let my wardrobe cheer me up. I nixed the polka-dot top and short outfit I had picked out and went with this flower print dress and gray cardigan. The colors definitely put a smile on my face. This bracelet is one that I have been working on for a while, and finally finished. 
I've got a few more, stay tuned!


  1. I love both of your back-to-school outfits (and I'm not just saying so!!) and I'm glad you're back! Hooray! - K

  2. Looking at the pictures, I wish I'd snapped them before class, or at least put makeup on. But Thaaankks! And I totally almost wore a dress as a shirt the other day! Maybe tomorrow.. -Jess
