The best part about going back to school is planning out the perfect first day outfit. Everyone wants to make a good first impression.
I wanted to wear something summery and not too complicated. This skater skirt from Asos is super swingy and fun. Pieces like this can let you play with mixing patterns in a way that you know is going to work. I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a white scoop neck Asos crop top and white gladiator sandals from Urban Outfitters. My bracelet and its charms were gifts.
It is important to follow the rules of your school dress code. Though my top is cropped, the skirt is high-waisted, keeping me within code.
I absolutely love the pinafore/overalls trend, and when I found this adorable floral dress at Forever 21, I knew I had found the perfect First Day outfit. The colors are perfect for autumn, but the fabric’s quite light so I knew I’d still be comfortable in the 85 degree weather. I purchased a coordinating hunter green chiffon shirt at Forever 21 and paired the ensemble with my black lace ups and a summery straw fedora from Charlotte Russe. I forewent any other accessories to keep the pinafore as the main event.
