Too Cool For School

September 2, 2016

Top: American Apparel / Jeans: Topshop / Shoes: Nike / Bag and Scarf: thrifted

All of my friends who are still in college started their classes this week and it leaves me a little nostalgic since I'm completely done with school (until I'm old and bored and want my Ph.D., ha) I earned my Masters Degree back in December and have been loving the no-school life to be honest. I do miss going to lectures, taking notes, and the whole social aspect of college, but don't miss the tests and papers at all. I was SUCH a procrastinator. It feels so good to be done so I can focus on other things. This casual outfit is something I would wear to class and I actually shot it at the beginning of August with no intentions of putting together a #BTS look.

Here I am incorporating the neck scarf trend. I love that it adds a little extra to this otherwise simple outfit.

I actually didn't start to wear sneakers on campus until graduate school. I always liked to "dress up" because that's how I felt the most confident. Dressing up meaning, dresses, skirts, chunky heels, boots, etc. Once the sneaker trend hit I was on board with more casual wear in the classroom.

What is a typical school/college/uni outfit for you? Do you tend to dress more casual or "dressed up" in the classroom?


  1. Your outfit looks stunning!

  3. I love the neck scarf! It's probably one of my favorite accessories, I actually did a post about it not too long about because I was sick of seeing chokers everywhere and I feel like a neck scarf is a chicer alternative. XO

  4. I absolutely love the scarf! Small things can make the biggest difference! xx

  6. I think a typical school outfit has to be anything with flatshoes because comfort is King. Love the look.

  7. the little scarf really adds a nice touch!

  8. Can never go wrong with a monochrome look, you look great girl!


  9. Love the whole look! Since I'm home schooled I typically wear sweats or my PJ's to school ;)
