KnowItAllGrrrl 's Thoughts:

Well, I am loooong out of school (even college…), but if I was going back to school, I’d definitely wear something like this. It’s still VERY HOT in SoCal by late August / early September, so shorts are definitely the way to go for a back to school outfit. I love these Forever 21 shorts because they are comfy and the pastel color is very NOW. I put it with a short/boxy, vintage knit top, similar to what I’ve seen in F21, but this straight from the 80s. I like it best off the shoulder (like in my additional photo).

Back in the day, when I was a teen, I always took risks and was first on to the trends, but I did them in my own way. I never looked like anyone else, and people complimented me on that. Your teen years are the ones to experiment, to find your own style, and to really have fun. I miss those days, but I still have a lot of fun with fashion :).

On a side note, I like wearing my hair in a side braid lately. I’m growing my bangs out, and it seems to work with it. Plus, if it gets loose and messy from the wind, then it still looks okay.

I also had sushi to eat today – yum! They won’t be serving that in the school cafeteria ;).

Awesome outfit! I wish that back when I was a teenager I had been more aware of the wonderful things that can be found in thrift stores. Mom paid for the clothes so most cases I was limited to what she thought looked good on me. Not terrible, but I definitely didn't start experimenting with clothing as much as I am now until a few years ago. And sushi!!! Yumm! I love sushi!
