Back 2 Skewl: First Day 101

This post is dedicated to the fact that I have ONE "first day of school" (barring any unexpected failures...) left!! And it's next week!! WHAT?!

As a college senior, I have had my fair share of "first days" of the semester, and know that it is imperative to make somewhat of an impression so the professor remembers your name, but not so much so that it is very apparent to the professor when you skip class. 

It's a delicate balance, people. 
Top: Chichic / Shorts: Rings and Tings / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban / Necklace: J.Crew / Bag: Topshop / Sandals: Saturday / Watch: Olivia Burton 
Make an impression with statement jewelry and some fun sandals, while keeping it casual and functional with a breathable (no air conditioning in August...a must) top, jean shorts of an appropriate length and without rips (do I sound like a mom here?) a bag to carry all of those totally inexpensive textbooks, and a watch so you can check the time without a. turning around to see the clock on the wall (rude) or b. check your phone and get a death stare from your professor on day one. Bad moves either way. 

In typical college student fashion, I am already on that procrastination train and do not know what I will don on my last first day, nor have I begun my packing process! This is gonna be a good year, I can feel it. 

p.s. what are you guys wearing your first day back!? comment below!!

obligatory Billy Madison video....annnnnd go


  1. Lovely round-up, just adore those powder blue sandals! <3

  2. I love your fashion picks for school! :)

  3. Hi Meg! Great blog! Look forward to following. ;-)

  4. I joined college this August as a freshman and well my first day was boring as hell. We have a couple of snobby divas in our class who prefer to eat-breathe-sleep Gucci, Guess and Juicy Couture! xD

    1. There are always those kinds! Definitely not about labels, more about overall look and style! (So what if it's from Forever 21!) xo
