Simple Back to School Outfit

This post is part of a new series of posts, featuring the unique styles and tips from different people in my life. The first installment was Grace’s Late Summer Maxi Dress.

This second post features none other than my little sister Halley! Halley is currently going to school at University of Washington.

It’s hard work to be in school, and sometimes you just can’t be bothered to take an extended amount of time beautifying yourself. Halley’s outfit in this post is stylish and striking, but also simple. It can be put together quickly so you make it to that 8am class!

These photos were taken in and around the Seattle Central Library.

Sidenote: Halley hasn’t started school yet, but I realize we’re a bit late for many others heading back. We hope these tips will still help you out, as of course you want to look great throughout the year!

Please enjoy Halley’s 3 tips for simple back to school outfits.

Tip #1: Choose statement pieces, like an oversized sweater or a striking hat. These require little time, but still result in a creative outfit. (Note: Remember to keep balance. If your sweater is oversized, keep your jeans skinny.)

Tip #2: Go vintage! Explore thrift stores for pieces that are unique and affordable. Example: This satchel is from the ’70s, and is actually our dad’s old work bag.

Tip #3: Prepare the night before, as much as possible. Lay out your outfit, then wash your hair and go for beachy waves.

Thanks so much for reading!
