Back to School Fashion Week Day 3

Oh my goodness, y'all...I start SCHOOL today!  Summer went way, way, way too fast!  Where did the time go???

To help get us all in the back to school mood, I'm hosting 'Back to School Fashion Week' all week, right here!  Welcome to Day 3 of  the party!

Today's Outifit Inspiration:

This was one of my favorite outifits to wear to school last fall so I knew I had to add some updates this year to make a tired outfit relevant again.  I added my leopard Sperry flats and a JCrew Factory coral necklace to spice things up, and I couldn't be happier!  Voila...a "new" outfit for fall!

I love pairing chambray (a great neutral) with a bright skirt.  I've also worn this top with a full grey skirt, but it's just way more fun to wear with bright colors.  My Banana Republic skirt is no longer available, but I found these two skirts for you that would pair so well with a chambray top!


I am loving this chambray top from JCrew Factory!  Seriously, you can wear this with SO much.  If you don't have one yet, INVEST. NOW.

 My cute coral necklace is also from JCrew Factory.  Find all of their cute necklaces currently in stock hereThere are quite a few that would look SO CUTE paired with either of the BR skirts pictured above!  

Leopard accessories are always a fashion DO and go with pretty much anything.  Find a leopard print skinny belt from Forever 21 here and stylish Target flats here.

Shopping Tip of the Day:

Only buy it if you love it.  I know this sounds so simple, but I know we have all stood in the dressing room deliberating over a fashion find, only to buy it, take it home and hardly ever wear it.  I'm here to tell ya, ladies, if you don't absolutely love it in the store, you're not going to love it any more once it's in your closet.


Remember to link up your back to school fashion inspiration by grabbing the black button image and linking back to my blog.  I would love to have you join the fun!

Check out Katie's Day 2 outfit here over at her blog, Paladino Picks.  She is seriously adorable.  I think we should be shopping buddies. 

 Thanks so much for popping over!  Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for Day 4!
