Well… I’m back in Boston for my last school year as an undergrad at Boston University. Needless to say, let the panic commence. While my peers spent yesterday prepping their books and notepads while simultaneously color coding their upcoming schedule/calendar (no? just me?) I spent the hot afternoon modeling some of my favorite back to school inspired outfits while my amazingly talented friend Cara snapped some pics (you can check out her insane work/website here) and got me giggling- because those of you who know me can attest to my innate awkwardness in front of a camera. Must be the journalist in me- el oh el.
Anywho, please sit back and enjoy these photos that were in all truth a labor of love from a good friend and an even better photographer, and feel free to laugh at me (lord knows I am still laughing at some of these).
Outfit #1 is for the hot climate kids, or really anyone wanting to show a little leg in class.
Shorts and Top: H&M
Sandals: Joe Fresh
Sunnies: Free People
Expression: This is real this is me.
For the cold classes, or perhaps feeling a tad bit demure, throw on an oversized sheer sweater (like this one I “borrowed” from a good friend- sorry Linds).
Close up of the shorts/my manicure:
Styling Backpack/short hair don’t care (kind of care tbh): Steve Madden
Outfit #2 is an ode to boyfriend/girlfriend jeans (this is 2015 people):
Top: JCrew Outlet
Necklace: JCrew (thanks becca!)
tip: for the right boyfriend/girlfriend jean, go for one with not too many holes/patchwork holes, that way you can wear them year round/get your $$ worth. Also, be careful with the wash- too light looks like you stole your dad’s jeans circa 2001/Adam Sandler called and he wants his jeans back.
Let senior year begin! I wish you all the best and hope this year is a great one. Please scroll down to watch the slide show of all of the other winning pics Cara took, and don’t forget to check out her website. Please comment below with thoughts/ideas on upcoming posts.
Stay classy, sassy and bright peeps.
