My mom and I always talk about how it feels like just yesterday that I visited North Central College and Naperville for the first time, and now here I am starting my senior year. How am I already here? With just 10 months standing between me and graduation, the countdown is on to finish out my schooling and head back to New York. And of course, I have to finish out school in style.
Something I started doing a lot this summer is layering T-shirts under dresses, tanks, etc. It's an easy way to add coverage (and warmth for incredibly cold offices/classrooms) while still being on-trend. I layered my new favorite white T-shirt from Everlane under a velvet midi dress from Topshop that I picked up from the Nordstrom sale.
To keep the look casual for the first day of class, I wore my adidas Stan Smith sneakers. Paired with the sneakers, the look is stylish but still laid-back enough to sit through lectures.
Accessories are always a must so I added some gold earrings from T.J.Maxx and my Skagen watch.
I decided to stick with my tried and true dry shampoo-filled topknot since washing my hair just didn't sound very fun today. My makeup look is my new go-to: a little bronzer, a little eyeliner and a lot of mascara... or mascaras.
Scratching my head at how I'm already a senior in college.
Here's to my last first day of school!
