How-to: Get Ready for Back to School

Ahhhhh! It's August. My summer has absolutely flown by. So, in honor of this whole end-of-summer dealio, I present to you, our lovely readers How-to: Get Ready for Back to School.

Step numero uno: Take inventory of your closet.

What essentials do you need? Are there things you can repurpose? Are there items you love? Are there items you can do without? Go through this checklist while sifting through your closet to determine what you need to purchase, what you should keep, and what could be donated.

Step 2: Invest in Key Pieces

...and by invest, I mean get the best quality item you can without completely killing your budget. Some ideas:

1. Cardigans. At about 2K, the cardi pictured is a bit out of most college girls' price ranges, but it's precious and I had to include it!
2. Blazers
3. Ballet Flats or Comfy walking shoes of choice
4. School Bag. Crazy colors optional, but preferred.
5. The perfect bottoms, whether it's a pair of jeans, crops, or a skirt.

Back to School
Step 3: Think Long-term

Be sure to purchase things that will be versatile and can be adjusted for weather changes throughout the year.

Step 4: Stock Up on Essentials

...and here, by essentials, I mean notebooks and pens and a planner and such.

Step 5: Get Ready to Rock It

Hopefully these ideas will help you prepare for the loveliness that is going back to school!

Wishing you love, fashion inspiration, and academic success,
