I've been questions right now about back to school fashion and this post addresses a common question, but I think applies to a lot of things, not just back to school.
There's this whole notion of wanting to look nice every day for class. (I know it's not for everyone, but I'm a believer in getting dressed and looking nice.) A lot of girls are concerned because they tend to oversleep and don't have time to get ready in the morning. Other girls stare at their closet some mornings and have no idea where to start.
I am right there with you!!! I have those days too.
(Last week, I showed you how to dress up simple denim and t-shirts with statement necklaces.)
Are you a grab a sweatshirt and run out the door kind of girl? Here's my latest trick:
Blazers may not seem like a sweatshirt substitute, but they totally can be. Throw on any shirt with a pair of skinny jeans. (Literally, any shirt: tank, blouse, oxford, polo, t-shirt....) Then slip into a blazer and a pair of boots or ballet flats and you're to good to go!
I know what you're thinking, blazers are stuffy and stiff!
Butttttttttttt- these Urban Outfitters blazers are actually comfortable. They're shaped nicely, but I think you may forget you're wearing a blazer!
(I promise they look much better on than they do on the model)
This J. Crew wool blazer is perfect for chillier days once winter arrives!
And I'm definitely stocking up on these J. Crew schoolboy blazers. I just got the grey one and IT IS LOVE!
So, forget about that sweatshirt and stock up on blazers!
