Remember the days of going back to school was the best part about summer. Of course after a week in, the novelty wears off and you already went through your new school clothes. Now a days, all of our days are running together we don’t have summer to spend with friends or gearing up going back to school.
I am here to introduce a new rule. I have made the decision to go back to school shopping for myself this year. Just because I am no longer in school does not mean I have to give up my favorite pastime. I put together two looks that I know will mix and match everything I already own in my closet.
My first look is my “Working Girl Chic” Something that every 9-5 lady can put on in the morning and feel refined all day long. Instead Of a new backpack I would need an iPad case and will be trading in my lace-up Chuck Taylors, for Givenchy heels.
My other look that fits my alter-ego personalty. I call this look “Classic on Acid” Something a little more edgier but still sophisticated. All the kids on the playground will be either envious of me or intimidated of how kick ass I will look.
Both of these outfits cost well into the thousands of dollars range. However the great thing about back to school shopping when you are my age, is that you will not be growing out of your clothes in 6 months. These are all investment pieces that you will have in your closet for years to come. Who said going back to school is a drag?
