Back to School

I am not one to get excited about a new school year, but I feel the need to at least address the topic as this is my final year of high school.  My 12 exhausting years of education are finally coming to an end, and I can start to take classes I am actually interested in at college.  Don't get me wrong-I love learning, but I have never thought of high school as "the best years of my life" and I certainly won't miss it.  I am someone who gets themselves very stressed even over small assignments, and with college applications as well, this year will definitely be tough.  

I am, however, extremely excited for fall fashion.  I have always preferred winter clothes over summer ones, not just becuase I prefer to be cold, but because it is so much more comfortable and more chic to wear jeans, booties, and an oversized sweater than boring shorts and a tee.  I have always found it difficult to remain fashionable over the summer, when even a bathing suit feels like too much clothing in this heat and I can barely be bothered to get out of pajamas.  Autumn is a time for beautiful colors and rich fabrics, and I have been loving some of the looks on the runway for fall.  Even if I am dreading the start of school, I am certainly looking forward to ditching my sandals for some leather boots. 

I wasn't quite sure if I should post my "back to school outfit" because at my school all of the graduating seniors wear our senior shirts on the first day, so there is not much room for a fashionable interpretation.  Most people adorn their looks with whistles, beads, high socks, and face paint, but I have never been one for school spirit, so I just piled on the jewelry and added a touch of school spirit with my red shoes.  What is your go-to back to school look?

Madewell shorts, Ash sneakers, MR Dannijo necklace, Michael Kors watch 

I actually had a great first day of school on tuesday, but I am currently enjoying my long weekend for the Jewish holidays.  L'shana Tova to everyone celebrating!
