Just kidding, education is important! – yay books! Seriously though… I love books, I’m a nerd, it’s great. Enjoy this back to school inspired look, styled around another brilliant PurrrLA dress!
Confession: sunflowers and daisies are my favorite flowers, and when they’re on clothes, I just go a bit bananas over it. So getting to style this dress was so much fun for me 😀 Other than my obsession with flowered fabric, the shape of this dress has a lot going for it. I love these looser, baby doll type dresses – especially in the intense heat wave Southern California has been having, it’s nice to have your clothes stay further away from your body! I definitely went for an updated 90s vibe with styling this outfit, with school starting up, maybe I was just reminiscing back to my elementary school days…
The Spice Girls, pogs, scrunchies, Lisa Frank… anyways … SO I grabbed my jean vest and threw in on; all I’m missing is a tattoo choker (which surprisingly has come back as trendy somehow) and some white platform sneakers and I’d look like I stepped right out of a time machine.
Instead I opted for this perfect flower necklace, which, get this – is a REAL flower pressed and preserved in a lacquer! I got it at a craft fair in Ohio a million years ago and it’s one of my favorites. I also went bold with my silver oxfords paired with some nice blue socks. Lately I am really into higher socks, growing up you couldn’t PAY me to wear anything higher than an ankle sock, it was like I was allergic to seeing socks on my feet. We grow, we change, it’s a thing.
I hope you like the look and, if you’re heading back to school, I hope it inspires you to try something new! Let me know what your favorite back to school pieces are that make you feel like a million bucks walking back into that place that owns your life for the next good part of the year!

The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who’ll get me a book I ain’t read.”
