Chic details; back to school

Remember the school? Were you one of those that were singing rebelliously "Teacher leave the kids alone in front", or you were with utterly devoted pupil team? Even if you were just a scholar full of joy, you must had one of those want to be all grown up moments. And now that you are all grown up, you still wearing similar items once you were wearing in benches? Hated or beloved, you must admit Mrs. School left very impact on who you are and maybe what you wear today. Do you ask yourself sometimes who would be the one that is nostalgic in the story of stylish education; us or the designers? For this fall, many of them announced comeback in benches; from Philip Lim, Generra, Peter Jensen, Proenza Schouler, Brian Reyes, Cynthia Steffe to Boy by Band of Outsiders. All those folks are crazy about the girl that wears toggle jackets, pleated skirts, vests, dresses with peter pan collars, all the lace-up footwear (from oxfords to booties), visible socks or the one up to the knee. If you are fan, no matter if you choose to be perhaps charming Lolita or Preppy out of college, you’ll feel satisfied in the fall with shops overwhelmed with new glance preppy items. In mean time, while we waiting, we could use some of the Nouveau school tips for the warm days. Who even said that we want to go on school vacations?

No 1 Nouveau school detail; Barrette in the hair

Yes, visible pin and there’s no much of philosophy about it, wear it just the way your mum once wanted for you to wear it. Just keep your hair sleek and tidy. If you have a bob or the shoulder length, look upon Margot Tenenbaum. If you have a long or short hair, find some inspiration from Phillip Lim spring runaway. Hairstylist Odile Gilbert made a side part and wrapped hair in old school side-chignon. She used two red barrettes, on the front and on the back above the chignon. Red color of pin is ideal charming match for spring pastels.

No2 Nouveau school detail; brown satchel
Don’t tell me you are not head over heels for satchels this season. Perfect version of satchel, for spring and plenty of summer dresses and floral prints would be in brown or tan. If you are in lack off around €1000, forget about Mullbery’s Alexa or Proenza’s PS1 and go for the vintage. Make a little flea market trip or find something fits you on Etsy. Just make sure that if has handle has a large shoulder strap so it can easily transform to shoulder bag. And sometimes can be just nonchalant oversized clutch .

Hey MissLikely :)

In stylish education? I've give it to "us"....for even tho most fashions have been reproduced rather than recreated it's still been more copyed off of a young teen's style while walking down the street, if that makes sense. I didn't have much of a unique style in HS, as I just wore what I felt was cute, and what would've get me made fun of. It wasn't until after my days of high school, that I actually started developing a REAL sense of style. As for the hair pins? They've always made me look younger; middle school.

And lastly, as always I LOVE reading your post :) Have a fab weekend :)

I've always liked the satchel style! I had one for school, but not made of leather. I've also always thought there to be a certain chic in school uniforms (like in Gossip Girl), but I probably would have hated to wear one (thankfully I didn't).
