School has started or almost started for many people and I still remember my excitement at each first day. There was the nervous anticipation of what to wear, would I like my teachers and the hope that I would have a friend or two in each class.
This time around, if I was doing a first day, I would wear this outfit. A pink dress with fun jewelry says that she’s fun and approachable. First impressions are key so in addition to a great outfit I would also be prepared with a couple good questions for the teacher. There’s no better way to start off on the right foot!
Spice up a classic silhouette by picking a dress that has jewels sewn into it. This traditional shape is flattering for all body types by accenting her waist while skimming over her curves. If you like a more laid back style or don’t feel like accessorizing, it’s great to pick a dress that takes care of that for you.
If you were to visit my apartment you would find a sea of nautical items. Growing up near the beach, it’s close to my heart. I don’t think I could ever go too far from water. There’s something about the smell and relaxing feeling I get by being near it that I could never give it up.
I incorporate a nautical theme into my wardrobe by picking items that are brightly colored with sea creatures or plants. This dress brings out the bright colored coral that dots the ocean floor. I paired it with a bright green to imitate the ocean and make the deep reds stronger.
Wear a dress with a big bold flower pattern? Yes, please!
Go big, go bold and try fun patterns! There’s nothing wrong with mixing up a normally monochromatic or solid colored wardrobe with a loud dress. I’m in love with the big graphic flowers peppering this dress. Yellow and pink bring to mind a preppy party. This would be perfect for any occasion from a quick drink with friends to a family dinner.
