Back to School :: Wardrobe

Now that school is rolling around I am starting to miss the excitement of back to school time.  Back to school shopping and tax free days are the best!  I always loved getting new clothes, school supplies and reorganizing my room in preparation for the new school year.  It's so nice how you get to start fresh each school year.  Getting to class extra early with a brand new notebook and pen ready to learn... what could be better than that?  The beginning of the school year is so fun.  You get to see all your friends that you may not have seen in a while and meet news ones and all without the stress of midterm exams!

Although it has been a few months since I graduated (I cannot believe how fast time flies!), it feels like I should be preparing for back to school again.  I thought I would share a few items that I think every new college Freshman should have in her wardrobe.

1. Go-to Oxford Shirt | Every college girl needs a go-to oxford shirt.  Oxford shirts are the perfect way to look put together even when you woke up 30 minutes late for class.  A simple Oxford Shirt can be paired with jeans or shorts for class or dressed up for work or an internship.  The possibilities are endless!

2.  A Reliable Lightweight Jacket | It's always smart to have a lightweight raincoat or windbraker in your wardrobe.  With the unpredictable Florida weather (and other places too), you never know when a thunderstorm might pop-up.  It's always better to be prepared.  Having a go-to jacket in your closet will make rainy days a little bit better.  This

3.  Jack Rogers Sandals | I don't know about other places, but in the South Jack Rogers Sandals are everywhere!  All over the University of Florida campus you will see girls wearing their favorite pair of Jacks.  Jacks are the perfect sandal and can be dressed up or down for just about any occasion.

4. A Fashionable Tote Bag | Every college girl needs a fashionable tote to carry to and from class, the library and meetings.  It is important that the bag is able to withstand just about anything that might come it's way.  You never know when you'll be in the middle of a late-night cram session when the guy next to you spills his coffee all over the table.  Yikes!  Good thing your bag can take it.  College life is unpredictable and hectic make sure you have a go-to tote or backpack that can keep up with your new crazy college life!

5.  Classic Mini Skirt | A classic mini skirt can take a girl from class to an internship and then out to dinner with friends.  I love this scalloped mini from J.Crew.  It can be worn a variety of ways.  I think this will be a Fall staple in many girls wardrobes this season, don't you?
