Back To School: Preppy

Monday, 1 September 2014








I can't quite believe it's September already and school should be starting this week, at least in London anyway, I'm at university now so I have a little longer until I start but for those of you who are starting this week I thought I'd give a little inspiration for your school outfit. I had school uniform until I reached sixth form but for those 2 years I was stuck on what to wear every day! I'm making this week a "back to school" week on my blog so hopefully it will be helpful for those of you starting now.

Today's look is a preppy one, I took some inspiration from shows like Gossip Girl to create a sophisticated girly look which I think emulates their staple style. Although my mum complained about my skirt being too short saying I'd be sent home from school (so true, especially in the school I went to) and my boyfriend complained about my necklace saying I'd never wear it to school - possibly also true - but nonetheless I think this is such a cute look for those willing to try it out.

I bought this backpack for a holiday I'm going on later on this week as I think it will be far more practical and it suited back to school perfectly. I love that there are some really cute backpacks out at the moment, so stylish and they won't give you a back ache from all those school books! Shirt and jumper combos just remind me of school so much and I wore a skirt to go along with it. I initially tucked in my tops but then opted to have it out instead and show the layering, which also led to a creased jumper - sorry!

Are you going back to school this week? What will you be wearing?

  1. Loving this preppy look!!! I don't go to school but this is a perfect outfit for the office so I might try to recreate it. :)
    Also I'm incredibly jealous of your New Look backpack, I've wanted this bag for ages and now they have brought it out in a few different colours I have no idea which one to get as I am ridiculously indecisive! Lol. x

    1. Thank you! I don't go to school either and think uni is just far too laid back for a look like this haha, but maybe on a presentation day :P Ohh, can't wait to see - I can imagine you wearing this! Mine is baby blue but I'm in love with the white and silver ones too, I'm surprised by how much I like it haha! X

    1. I thought I'd be bored of the pastel trend by now and wouldn't be able to incorporate it into my looks this winter but this bag does just that perfectly! X
