Friday's Fancies: 1st day of School

This Friday's Fancies is totally perfect for me this week! The theme is "Back to School Best" and as many of you know, I also went back to school yesterday! If I had the wardrobe that Polyvore does then this is what I would probably wear...
too cool for school





I wanted to go for something casual but put together. Nothing really over the top. I paired neutrals with my fav color for some fun. And instead of a backpack which I will undoubtedly end up using eventually, I put in a giant tote for notebooks and such.

I'm thinking I need to invest in some Sperry's. They are pretty cool! And I really want those Oakley's. That pair is actually the only kind of aviator that looks good on my face. All but those that I've tried on make me look sad because they come down too far. They are definitely on my Christmas list and the bf is well aware.

For my first day of school I wish I could wear something like this but unfortunately my go-to jeans(all 3 of them) wear being hemmed. It's about time though and it got up to 86 on campus so maybe it's best I couldn't wear them.

I took a picture of what I wore the first day of school but I haven't mastered taking pictures of myself in a mirror so they didn't turn out well. And 6am isn't my finest hour when it comes to handling technology. I'll update everyone soon about how orientation went!

I'm a new follower and just wanted to chime in on the Sperry's. You need some! They're the best investment I've ever made. I can wear them all day with no pain- it's like not wearing shoes at all!
