Beauty Bit- Back To School Beauty

back to school beauty

back to school beauty

Back to School Season is upon us. Time for us to get our back to school beauty routines together, and start transitioning our skin from summer skin to fall skin. To transition your beauty routine properly, you need to find a cute lipstick and blush in a purple or red tone. Then you need to find a cute fall nail polish. Don’t forget to find hair and skin products that will moisturize the skin and hair as the temperature begins to drop. The products below are some of the things I am looking for this back to school beauty season. Photo from here.

Currently Craving – Back-to-School Fashions

back-to-school-college-3

Ahhh! It’s that time of year again; back-to-school! No more late nights, road trips and movie nights, it’s time to get back to the books, studying and forgetting that you ever had a social life. Summer came and went in the blink of an eye, and if you’re like me, you’d do anything to have another week or two of summer relaxation. Then again, a part of me, is ready to stand in front of my closet and pick out an outfit for the first day of school. Yes, even as a college senior, I still get excited about what to wear on the first day back. I know I’m not the only one out there.

The first day of class is always scary, especially if you have no idea where you are going. For those who may be starting their 2014-2015 school year starting for some next week, here are some outfits that will have you looking and feeling good on your way to class. You will definitely get an ‘A’ in style on the first day, even if you have no idea where you are going!

Outfit #1: Laid back and Comfy

With this particular outfit, instead of wearing the sweater, you could wear the wear a white tee and have the sweater around your waist for when it gets cold. Unless you live in windy cites, like Chicago, then you should wear the sweater and a shirt underneath it so you won’t freeze to death.

Outfit #2: Preppy meets Boho

Are you a Pretty Little Liars fan? If so, then you know this outfit has Spencer Hastings written all over it!

Outfit #3: Minimal Fashionista

0f0ce42c271700ac917994ae779b5bfcThis outfit is for the fashionista who like to keep it simple in a pair of jeans and a white tee but wants to add a little flavor to the mix with accessories, like the floral scarf.

Outfit #4: The Girl Next Door:

This is a girly, yet simplistic outfit for the girl who doesn’t go out of her way just to look cute. Keeping it simple with a watch and a pair of sparkly flats, she’s all set!

Outfit #5: California Glamour Girl

It’s still summertime, so taking advantage of pastels and bright colors is the way to go whether it be with skirts or dresses. Accessorize with different kinds of jewelry, aqua would be my go to color with this coral look. If you aren’t looking to be a “California Glamour Girl”, try adding leather accessories to give this look some edge.

Outfit #6: Sporty Urban Chick

This look is for a girl who loves her vans and isn’t that into shopping. If you love tribal prints, this look is for you! Keep the accessories to a minimum; all you need is a pair of skinny jeans, a tee, and your vans and you’re all set!

Outfit #7: Hanna Marin

0166d0086a80845b3c08ff752c7a6a6d

Another reference to Pretty Little Liars, this look has Hanna Marin written all over it; girly patterns and purses. Wanting to be comfortable during the day, a pair of white chucks will complete this outfit.

Which outfit is your favorite?

Thank you Ashley Goode, a Virginia based stylist, who helped me come up with the names for these outfits! All images in this post can be found on Pinterest.

Shoe of the Week- Loafers Are The Perfect Back To School Shoe

Loafers are the perfect back to school shoe. When I was in grade school and college, I used to wear loafers all the time. I am looking for new pair now. I think loafers are a very classic shoe that is easy to wear. They are great because you can dress them up or down with jeans or dresses. I don’t think anybody at any age can go wrong with a classic loafer. This pair from Target comes in five different colors for only $24.99. Cheap and chic. Picture from Target.

Just a quick note: I am still having difficulties with the Bad Bish video blog posts. Please bear with me.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!
