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! ;).
