Being late to class in sweatpants after rolling out of bed is a bad excuse enough. BUT being late to class in style makes it a little less intimidating! When you show up to class in your hottest outfit, you're too cool for school! But of course, you still need to go to your classes in order to graduate with a degree on time.
For college students, fall semester is just around the corner! I think I have a love-hate relationship with August, specifically because I'm excited for fall but I'm also not ready to say farewell to summer quite yet. While these past few months felt like a blur, I did get to enjoy some much needed sunshine and relaxation. So I'm slowly but surely preparing myself for fall. I don't know about you, but I'm very excited about going back to Kent State for this semester. I already know it's going to be the best one yet and I'm so ready for it!
There's usually one question that pops into a college kid's mind on the first day of classes: what to wear? Let's be honest, we want to look cute but we also want to stay comfortable. Well, I have just about the most helpful style idea!
Since it's still warm outside, it should be safe to wear a casual dress. And when autumn starts creeping in, you can pair it with some cute jackets, scarves, hats, and boots. I'm absolutely adoring my newest addition to my wardrobe: my grey ruched sheath t-shirt dress from Venidress.
I've been looking for a chic and casual summer grey dress for a while, and thankfully I managed to come across Venidress on Instagram. It was on sale for $28.88 (previously $48.86), which is an awesome deal for a pretty dress like this one. I not only love the color and comfiness of it (perfect for a lazy day!), but I love the layered bottom part. It's so sexy and fun for a neutral colored dress!
My knitted cardigan from Urban Outfitters looks extremely cute with this dress, along with my gold layered necklace from Francesca’s and All-Star Converse sneakers. I freaking love this whole outfit, perfect for a long busy day of classes. An outfit like this will surely make you the most stylish student on your campus!
Before I stop writing this post, I want to let y’all know that I’m hosting yet another GIVEAWAY just in time for going back to school!
