Back to School: Majoring in Cute

Back to school is just around the corner, lucky for me its the first time in my life that I can remember where I am not filled with all the emotions that come from starting school.  Stressing about the stress I'm going to have, trying to figure out how to successfully avoid people for the entire year, and the endless outfit planning.  Even though I am not heading back to school I wouldn't leave my readers who are hanging.  This is the first of my "back to school" looks and its for all my cuties, sometimes I wish I was heading back to kindergarten and I think this look shows just that.  

Today is the last day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and your last chance to get this adorable Topshop dress for $45 (shop here).  I am loving the tee shirt under a dress trend happening now, it totally takes me back to elementary school and my love for layering shirts.  I'm pretty sure I wore like four shirts everyday, I've always been a risk taker when it comes to fashion.  I layered a basic Gap tee (shop here) under this denim dress, you could switch out the tee for a bralette or crop top for less of a school girl vibe.  A pair of white loafers (shop similar) will have you looking like you're at the top of your class even if you aren't, dress the part!  A Jump from Paper backpack (shop here) will definitely make you the talk of the school, you may only fit a few papers inside but you will look way cool.  To finish off the look I used an old pointe shoe ribbon as a bow choker!
