Fashion Friday: First Week

School starts in less than 2 weeks! I really have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that my summer vacation is pretty much over.  Wednesday starts 3 straight days of meetings, which is probably one of my least favorite parts of going back to school.  *sigh*

First Week of School

I've been trying to come up with some outfit ideas for the beginning of the year.  Outfit planning really speeds up the getting ready process, so I try to lay out my clothes or have a close idea for what I am going to wear ready the night before.  When I feel stuck in a style rut, I turn to my Pinterest boards or Polyvore and look for ideas on how to combine items I already have in my closet.

Our first week of school is only 4 days and Friday is a jeans and t-shirt day.  Monday night is Open House, though, so I need to have a nicer outfit ready that I can change into at school since I don't want to drive home in between.  

I came up with these outfits almost all of which are items I own (or dupes of what I own).  Comfy is pretty much the trend here since I'll be pretty active and will have to be outside for recess and busy duties.  I don't know if I'll actually wear these exact outfits, but they're a starting point!  (The striped dress is one that I tried on last weekend at Target, but didn't purchase...  I'm thinking I'll go back for it, though, because it's perfect for school!)

What will you be wearing back to school?  
Do you style and plan outfits ahead of time?


  1. I do not style and plan outfits, which leads me to changing about 5 times.This is a great idea! I definitely need to start thinking about what I'm going to wear the first week of school.

    1. When I have outfits planned ahead of time my mornings tend to go a lot faster... Of course there are those days when I decide to scrap the one I had set out, but most of the time I stick with my original plan! :)

  2. Wow, I never had such a well-dressed teacher. Your taste is adorable. All of those shoes are great, and I adore that sweet mint sweater! I hope you have a good first week of school, despite those meetings. Following you on GFC and Bloglovin'!

    May the Force be with you.

    1. Awww... Thanks, Emily! All of the sandals are Target and the flats are Payless. Thanks for stopping by!
