Well, it’s officially back to school time and this year it’s a special back to school for me. Not only are ALL my kids now in full-time school, but I am also heading back to finish school. YAY!!! I’m excited and nervous at the SAME TIME!!! Side note on that, this also means I’ll have to push my blog down my priority list, so just a heads up I probably won’t be posting as often as I did last fall and winter. I’m definitely gonna do my best to fit some posts in though cuz I do LOVE sharing my blog with you. It’s kinda my escape time. 🙂
Anyway, Alicia from Word of Alicia and I are BACK sharing our styling tips and for this one we’ve teamed up to bring you our Back to School styling tips cuz who DOESN’T want to look AMAZING as they head back to school (or just for Fall in general).
1. Start With Casual Cool
Start with a casual cool sweatshirt like the mark. Stroke of Luxe Sweatshirt. This sweatshirt is the perfect mix between casual and cool. Casual because it IS a sweatshirt which means it’s SUPER comfy!!! Then to make it Cool, gorgeous embellishments have been added along the sleeve seams. Plus with embellishments on the sleeves, it means no need for any added accessories!!! The perfect throw on and go piece!!!
2. Stay on Trend
Stay on trend with an army green skinny pant! Army green is continuing to be a HUGE trend into the Fall. Luckily it pairs perfectly with the mark. Stroke of Luxe Sweatshirt. That’s because grey and army green are both neutrals so they naturally pair really well together. Zippered details on the pockets and ankles add fun visual interest.
3. Add Some Print
Add a touch of print with some leopard print sneakers. Leopard is also a neutral just like the grey and army green, but adds a lil more visual interest (plus it’s just a fun print to wear). By-the-way, just because leopard is considered a neutral, you don’t want to over do it. I recommend keeping leopard to just one item in your outfit. In addition to the leopard, the sneakers are also just a great comfy shoe for all your running around.

Alicia’s Styling Tips:
For a back to school look embrace a new trend but keep it functional with the right accessories and walkable footwear! A t-shirt dress like the mark. Soft T Dress is the perfect solution when layered up with a plaid shirt, lightweight jewelry and a multi-wear bag like the mark. Draw To A Close bag that can be worn as a sleek back pack that’s way more chic!
I’m loving how Alicia dressed done this dress and made it her own, perfect for both school and the Fall season. For more tips and pics from Alicia, visit her blog at Word Of Alicia.
