Back to School Collab: Back To School Lookbook 2016

     Today I’ve put together a few looks that follow most school dress codes for a back to school lookbook!  My favorite part of going back to school is coming up with some cute outfits composed of pieces I’ve picked up over the summer, so I love writing these posts!  This is actually the second back to school lookbook I’ve created, so be sure to check out last year’s here for more outfit inspiration!  This post is also the second in my Back to School series this year, so if you didn’t read the last post in the series, “My Advice for High School Freshmen,” you should definitely go check it out here.  Many of the tips apply to most middle and high school students, so you could probably get something out of it even if you aren’t a rising freshman.  On another note, this post is a back to school collaboration with a really sweet friend of mine I’ve met through blogging; Fiona of Preppy NYC!  Today Fiona is posting a backpack guide, so be sure to check her post out too, it’s linked here!  Without further adieu, let’s get into the lookbook!

Plain in Periwinkle

     The first outfit is super simple and comfortable, plus this soft v-neck from Forever 21 is less than five dollars!  I dressed the tee up a bit with gold Jack Rogers sandals, my favorite Kendra Scott necklace, and a couple bracelets.  This outfit could easily transition into cooler weather by adding a cardigan and trading the sandals out for a pair of Converse.

Pink, White, and Gold

     Light pink has to be one of my favorite colors and I love the way it looks on this top over the white jeans in this outfit!  I think this gorgeous necklace from Boho Belle Jewelry adds a bit of a boho vibe to the outfit and even though that’s a bit different for me I think it looks really nice.  I personally love the double wrap necklace trend and this necklace is definitely one of my favorites that I’ve seen so far.  Be sure to check out Boho Belle Jewelry here for more pretty, trendy jewelry!

White Embroidery and a Pop of Color

     I’ve recently discovered I have a bit of a fetish for embroidered white tops, and this shirt definitely falls under that category.  I love the simplicity and versatility of the color white but also the cute details of the cutouts and embroidery!  I paired the white top with a pair of bright red jeans to add a pop of color along with a starfish bracelet with coordinating red beading.

The necklace from Boho Belle Jewelry featured in this post was sent to me in exchange for a feature in my blog.  However, all opinions are honest and my own.  I don’t feature products I don’t truly love!
