School Prep

Everyone has been posting first day of school pics of their adorable kids going back to school and it's got me feeling all nostalgic. Of back-to-school shopping and shiny new sneakers and getting a new binder you can't wait to decorate to make your own. I've always been into style, and the first day of school had to be the outfit that looked polished and put together, but wasn't too fancy.

On my actual first day of high school, I wore capri pants printed with a black romantic vintage scene and a black top with a back cutout. I felt so cool until as I was walking through the middle of the cafeteria, and the zipper in the back of my pants split open. Thanks to my BFF, who brought a jacket in case it was cold in the building, I had something to tie around my waist for the rest of the day. Still,  wearing a bulky leather jacket around my waist all afternoon was not exactly the perfect first day.

So, in my do-over dreams, if I was going back for my first day now, it would look something like this. It would be polished and classic (gotta make a good impression with the new teachers), but also trendy and fun.

Do you ever get nostalgic for back-to-school days and the excitement leading up to them? Maybe I'll just go pick up a brand new pack of colored pencils to go with my look.

Also, don't mind that spot on my top, I had to give my dog an emergency bath right before I snapped these. Guess even my do-over first day of school didn't work out perfectly either!
