Style: back to school fashion

As a 27 year old, I have absolutely no idea what the kids these days are wearing to go back to school. The only thing I’m pretty sure of is that it’s the wrong time of year for ‘back to school’ to be a trend. Tonight though, I have officially become a student again so thought it would be fitting to check out what other adults on the internet have to say about the subject.

I asked my good friend Pinterest what I should wear. The first results just made me laugh. Are these legit school outfits for anyone? Who, when and where?

I then tried adding ‘for teachers’ into my search in the hope there might be something a bit more suitable. This just seemed to give a lot of skirts and cardigans. Not exactly what I was thinking.

These are all very different to how dressed in college the first time around. I hope you’re all ready for a laugh.

Pinterest has failed me. Far too many posey, impractical outfits for a jewellery course. My own past wasn’t much help at all, apart from to show how far I’ve come. Maybe I was expecting the impossible for wanting a first day outfit. The brain wave was something comfortable that looked good but didn’t look to try hard. Basically that effortless look that is never all that effortless.

That only really left one option. Jeans, jumper and Dr Martens. Can’t go wrong really.

So I didn’t really think too far into the practical side of what I’d be needing from the clothes. This was fine for tonight but from now on it’s basically old clothes that won’t mind a bit of casual acid flying around.

I very much doubt there will be anymore ‘school fashion’ updates. If anyone is interested though, I’m sure the next 16 weeks are going to be full of exciting new jewellery projects. I know I’m excited about them anyway!

Stay tuned!

Much love!
