Some of my readers may remember that my younger sister Grace and I used to run a small style column on Thou Swell, until around the beginning of this year. Although I loved sharing a bit of sartorial content on the blog, I decided in January to go deeper into the home and entertaining vertical. That being said, I was so excited when Target asked me to share a back to school style post, because it is just so much fun to put together outfits with Grace! Together, we created three looks to rock on campus or off. Let us know which one you like best!
This outfit is easy and comfortable, but with the surprise of some chunky heels. Grace loves these shorts because they have great details, from the cute bow-tie to the metal zippers on the pockets. The tassel necklace and canvas backpack are fun and casual, while the shoes dress things up with a geometric cutout pattern.
The first look embraces the colors of fall, without settling into the heavy layers quite yet. This dress is the perfect transition piece from summer to fall, and is the perfect pair for gold accessories. I love Target’s selection of modern jewelry and their platform sandals were an instant favorite.
This final look is great for going out in style. The wide-leg style culottes are currently trending and look fabulous with Grace’s new favorite floral-patterned high heels. Throw in some more pattern with a plaid clutch, and you’re good to go!
