It's that time of year again, and I still (after 3 years) feel like one of the very last people to be heading back to campus. Good news is I have more time to scour the shops online for my favorite fall picks! Above are a few 'back to school' essentials for all the college ladies. I've added a few professional pieces for those of you who are working or interning, too, since that is also what I'll be doing. But whether you're working or not, it's good to start incorporating nicer and more modest items into your wardrobe. You never know when a last-minute interview opportunity could come up!
A few staples I'm bringing with me this fall are a few pairs of blue and black skinny jeans, a couple pairs of tailored and cropped pants, lots of button downs and silk tops that can be dressed up or down, a few basic tees and sweaters, a casual jacket for when it gets cooler, a dress that serves for both work and play, and a variety of shoes, preferably a pair of booties, heels, flats and sneaks. Think of investing in versatile pieces you can wear for various occasions. The great thing about bringing both casual and professional clothing to college is that they can be mixed and matched in unexpected ways, so you'll always have outfits appropriate for work, studying and nights out.
I can't wait to head back to school for my senior year this year! Ahh crazy how the time flies! Pretty soon I'll be a real adult [insert the 'monkey covering its eyes' emoji]. Happy college move-in!
