Friday's Fancies

7.9.12

It's time to go back to school with today's Friday's Fancies on {long distance loving}! I know many of you are over and done with the days of going back to school, but I can still relate to putting together a first day of school outfit so I did have some fun with this theme. For me personally, between classes, study sessions, lunch dates, and meetings, I can say I spend quite a bit of time on campus, especially at certain key points in the semester. Which means it's incredibly important for me to be comfortable. But I think you all know me well enough to know that doesn't necessarily translate to bumming it in sweats and a hoodie all day every day {though there's nothing wrong with that..}. All of that being said, a blouse in a pretty color or print, skinny jeans, and flats are pretty much a no-fail combination in my book -- casual and comfortable but still put-together {especially important for times when I have to juggle interning or working then going straight to class}. An oversized watch and a tote bag to carry everything in are two of my necessities for busy days.
