Long time no see?! Sorry! Its been a bit hectic with getting used to High school (!) and making new friends and New York (Ive got at least one more review for you guys, with my own pics, btw) and coming back to school and making up the work I missed etc. etc. You all probably understand. I mean my gosh. HIGH SCHOOL!??! I never thought Id see the day. Haha, anyways, I wanted to talk a little about school clothes. Enjoy!
So, Ive gotten a few emails/questions about what to wear to school/first day etc.
I want to say, first of all, high school is hard enough without adding “be stylish” to the list of to-dos, so I wanted to clear up any thoughts that you have to look like you just stepped out of TeenVogue’s pages when walking down the hallway. Ladies, I am a firm believer in this: Grades come first, Clothes come second.

Guess what? Chic means a pair of jeans and an awesome vintage jacket. Simple as that. You dont need to break out your newest wedges, or sparkly high waisted skirt. There are a LOT of stairs at my school, and I want to be able to navigate them easily throughout the day. Jeans are the best option. Especially since Im always afraid of a Marilyn Monroe moment (you know, with wind and a skirt and what not).
I understand, though, that you might get sick of jeans one day (I went through a period of that for about a month last year) So if you want to wear your skirt make sure to wear bike shorts under them! Or some tights. Often, I wear both!
There is nothing classy or feminine about short shorts or short skirts. Its trashy. Youd attract the wrong attention. End of story. I dont wanna see a TeenUgly in skin tight short shorts EVER, (unless worn under or over something).
What I basically want to tell you to survive HS wardrobe mishaps/situations is this:
1. Dont stress about your outfit! Its just one day.
2. Get sleep! Best thing for you. No dark circles!
3. Wear what you feel good in. What makes you feel empowered, what makes you feel awesome. Me? The outfit, Im wearing in the photo, I wore recently and I felt freaking AWESOME the entire day. I cant explain why, but the combo of the boots and jacket just made me feel golden.
