First Week Fashion: Day 1

Today was the first day of my junior year of college...WOW! I can't believe how fast time flies. I am beginning to focus on all my merchandising classes so I love how much more fashion oriented my days are becoming. I am with some girls in my classes that I know I will be with until the day we toss our caps at our college graduation! It's an exciting experience and I am enjoying every second of the ride. 
I don't know about ya'll, but ever since I was probably in like 3rd grade I have spent HOURS deciding what I want to wear on the first day of school. From stiff jean skirts and gaudy shirts in elementary school, to Hollister tops and tight jeans during my middle school years, and all the way to the stylish ensembles of my late teens I have gone from one decision to the next about what outfit I would be wearing as I busted down the double doors of my school. This year I decided to go for something that mixed simplicity, punk-rock style, and comfort. My outfit consisted of a loose black graphic tank-top from Pac Sun, crocheted shorts from Urban Outfitters, black bandeau bra from Forever 21, gold sandals from target, black and gold bracelet from Forever 21, a coral and gold bracelet that my grandparents bought me from Italy, and a chartreuse sweater from Victoria Secret for my freezing classrooms. I loved how my outfit was relaxed enough to not bother me during my 5 straight hours of classes, but cute enough to make (at least I hope) a good first impression! After I left my last class I asked my wonderful boyfriend to snap some pictures of me in my outfit. Here are some shots of my first day fashion...
Tomorrow I am going to update again with a picture of my ensemble for First Week Fashion: Day 2 (and for all of you who didn't know, my 20th birthday outfit!!!) and hopefully with some photographs of my peers and their first week ensembles! I hope you enjoyed taking a tiny peak into my back to school wardrobe! What did YOU wear on your first day back, ladies and gents??

keep on keepin' on fashionistas
