Back to School Style | Outfit Idea for the first day of school

Although I didn't have the pleasure of picking out a first day outfit for high-school thanks to the uniform policy, I always had friends that had to deal with the pressure of looking "cool for back to school." I never understood the stress they faced and actually envied them for being able to choose what they wore on the daily. But once I got into college the stress of finding the right ensemble hit me hard! So today I'm sharing how to make the first day outfit struggle a thing of the past and get you ahead of the class!

styling ripped bermuda shorts with grey YSL tributes

I don’t think there’s anything that feels more like summer than a great pair of shorts. But the latest shorts trend, Bermudas, is a bit controversial in the fashion world. With some women loving them thanks to the Kardashians and some women completely hating them, you can see why a gal might double think buying a pair. As for me, I'm team Bermuda shorts and here's why: When you are as curvy as I am especially in the thigh area (Thanks Mom!) finding a pair of shorts that doesn't make your legs look even bigger is difficult. Unlike short shorts that constantly ride up and occasionally cause chafing, Bermuda shorts stay in place and protect my thighs all while accentuating my curves and relieving my worry that my behind isn't hanging out!

Ruffles on Ruffles

Ruffles have gotten a major fashion makeover in the past year. With top designers like Miu Miu, Marni, Marc Jacobs, Simone Rocha, and more showing pieces with exaggerated ruffles, voluminous frills, and structured flounce, the frilly ruffle is a thing of the past. So whats the trick to pulling off the child like style? Making the ruffle the focal point of the entire outfit, and making sure it's structured and dramatic!  Cue the structured ruffle skirt! Boasting a level of sophistication that brings it into adult territory a ruffle structured skirt is by far my favorite way to pull off the trend. I found the one I'm wearing at a Bloomingdales sale a few weeks back.
