Fab Friday's Fancies | Back to School

8.19.2011

I feel like I say this every Friday but this has been the longest week ev-ah.  Maybe each week they just keep getting longer and longer?  God I hope not.

I've been giving a lot of thought to Fall lately and I think part of why I love it so much is because I have serious nostalgia over going back to school.  I was one of those nerds (and proud of it!) who loved loved loved school.  The first day of school was almost as exciting as Christmas Eve.  Will I like my teachers?  Will my teachers like me?  What kind of books will we have?  What art projects will we do?  I can't wait to see my friends!  These are just a few of the thoughts running through Little Stephanie's head on the eve of the first day of school.  In honor of those lucky enough to be going back to school this Fall, I'm linking up with {av} again for Friday's Fancies where "Back to School" is the theme of the week.  If I were headed back to school this Fall, this outfit is what Grown Up Stephanie would wear for the first day.  What about you?  What would you wear if you went back to school?


(Actually, this isn't too far off from what Grown Up Stephanie wears anyway - I just rock a much cheaper version!)  

1. Houndstooth blazer - preppy but relaxed, perfect for setting the right tone.
2. Pilcro Stet slim jeans - I needed skinnies for the outfit, Anthro has a new line of jeans, it was meant to be.
3. Sundrop necklace - this would be pretty lovely with a sundress, too, if it's not quite "sweater weather" yet.
4. Linen t-shirt - how comfy does this tee from Zara look?
5. Lex flats - finally some Jessica Simpson shoes that don't make my feet hurt just lookin' at 'em!!


Happy Weekend!!!

  2. Love this look!! The purple would look great with those yellow details. And would have been a perfect back-to-school outfit for me, as my college's colors were purple and gold!

  8. Lovin' those shoes! I was always excited to see what the syllabus would bring in college- when papers would be due and when exams would be. I'd put them in my planner right after I got home from school. Lol!
