Personal Spiel: Back-to-School Outfits

bus art by me

I was over reading Coco + Kelly's blog and she posted a very interesting topic about first day of school. She lists her picks for back-to-school outfits since it is the season. Here's the post. If was your first day of school right now what would you wear?

So her post is the inspiration of my post today. It made me wonder how I would dress for my first day of school. Mind you now.. I have a very random wardrobe. I don't think I have a particular style. However I manage to put together two outfits that are somewhat cohesive. I see the first few months of school as a crossover of Summer into Fall. So, especially here in California, I always opt for outfits that are very loose, airy, and comfortable for warm weather but in the fall colors. Here are my choice. Yes these are reminces of retro-ish style. For some reason beginning of school always reminds me of my all time favorite old tweeny movie Grease and Grease II. I'm a geek I know.

They make me wanna sing "You're the one that I want! Oooo ooo oo!"
