It's the most wonderful time of the year!
The start of the school year is THE BEST. Everyone has a new box of crayons and the totally unfounded belief that it's going to be the best year ever. Of course, you know I have to bring my "A" game the first couple weeks of school, outfitwise.
For the first day, I went for a vibrant orange vintage dress with a necktie. I'm a sucker for neckties, pussy bows, and the like. I felt a bit like a late 70's secretary--Mary Tyler Mooreish, I suppose. (Was she a secretary? I assume she was bc sexism.)
Sadly, my puppy was so excited when I returned home from school that he ripped a (large) hole in this 30+ year old polyester frock. Whenever I ruin vintage I have to laugh/weep at the notion that this piece of clothing existed relatively unscathed for three or four decades, only to be ruined after a week in my possession. This is why we can't have nice things.
Dress: Scout Dry Goods and Trade // Shoes + Bag: Modcloth (old) // Bracelet: Thrifted
You had me at rainbow polkadots. This dress reminds me of funfetti cupcakes and Twister (the game, not the 90's movie with Helen Hunt). So it's basically like a children's birthday party in dress form! Also it's suUuuUper comfortable, flattering and profesh-looking, imo.
Dress: Hello Holiday, old // Shoes: B.A.I.T footware // Dog: Nebraska Humane Society
This was my first day of school outfit last year, and I pulled it out for a 2017 remix. However, I didn't photograph it this year--so this is last year's picture. Is that cheating? I think so, but it's my blog, so whatever.
I love everything about this dress! It's bright, fun and cheery, just like the start of the school year should be.
Dress: Petal Pink Vintage // Shoes: Probably the same red ones from above
Even if you're not in education, I hope you, too, have a new 64 pack of Crayolas (with built-in sharpener) and a renewed sense of purpose.
Stay tuned next week to see the shoes I bought when I was trying to only make "sensible" purchases this month (one pair is pink and furry--totally necessary wardrobe staple)!
