Ok, so I’m not going back to school and thank goodness for that! Lets just say that I didn’t exactly love school and I still sometimes have nightmares that it’s the end of the semester and I still don’t have any of my assignments done. The one thing I do miss though, is the back to school shopping. I have very fond memories of going shopping at Hudson’s with my mom, it’s the one thing that made the idea of going back to school bearable for me. I remember planning the outfit that I would wear on the first day of school like it was the most important thing in the world. I’m so thankful that I have a mom who let me be myself and wear pretty much whatever I wanted as long as it was within the dress code of my private school (which could sometimes be a bit limiting to a budding fashionista). Even though I’m an adult now and my school days are long gone, I think I should still be able to go “back to school” shopping around this time of year. Just as it eased the pain of the looming school year for me, new sweaters and boots will ease the pain of the impending winter ;).

It seemed appropriate to wear this jumper from ModCloth on the day that most kids go back to school. It reminds me of a school uniform in the very best way and I love it. I paired it with these Bass saddle shoes I scored from an eBay auction to give it even more of a preppy schoolgirl look. Now I just need to get a chic leather backpack and I’ll be ready to hit the books. Only this time, I get to choose what to read! ;).

Truly,

Tamara

Wednesday’s Love List 8-13-14

As much as I hate to admit it, fall will be here soon. I actually love the fall, It’s just that I’m never ready for the summer to end. I do however, love the smell of crisp leaves, pumpkin spice lattes (pumpkin everything), Halloween and especially the clothes. I’m excited to start layering again with cozy sweaters, scarves, tights and boots. So for this weeks Wednesday’s Love List I thought I would share some pieces I’m currently loving that will easily transition from summer to fall.

1. Forever 21 has a lot of cute dresses right now and I especially love this one. I mean, it’s plaid AND has a Peter Pan collar. Enough said.

2. I love everything from Bait Footwear, but this pair of shoes would be perfect for any season and would go with everything.

Once it starts to get a little chilly out just add a cardigan and bright pair of tights and you have a perfect fall (or even winter) outfit!

3. I am loving this pretty, feminine sweater from Avenle. It works perfectly for cooler summer evenings or layered for the fall.

4. These super versatile boots from Target look just like Frye boots and are a great price for real leather. They also come in 2 other colors.

Just add some skinny jeans, a scarf and a jacket and you have an outfit ready for cooler weather.

5. I am absolutely in love with this dress from Ruche! I told you I was mad about plaid ;).

6. I adore Seychelles shoes and although this pair from Modcloth is a little pricey for me, I know that I would wear them for years to come.

Layer the dress with a cardigan or a jean jacket and you have a lovely fall ensemble :).

What about you? What are some great pieces that you either have in your closet or want to buy that help you transition from summer to fall? I hope you are having a great week so far!

Truly,

Tamara
