Back To School Fashion

So I've been getting quite a lot of comments on my latest videos from worried viewers who fear I've neglected my fashion tutorials...don't fret, little ones!!  I haven't forgotten about the fashion side of my channel, I'm just branching out with the make-up ones.  And what's wrong with a bit of variety to spice things up?!  Honestly though, I don't think a lot of people who watch my YT vids even know I have this blog, where I regularly post my Outfits of the Day and such.  I think I had mentioned in my Back to School Make-Up post that there would be a follow-up post on fashion.  So If you're reading this blog and you know about it, you're one of the clever ones who gets all the inside scoop! 

I put together three looks that I personally feel are perfect for back to school/college.  These will all be in today's video but you special blog followers/readers get to see them here first!  These three looks reflect my own style, so do keep that in mind.  It's quite difficult to try and cater to everybody's style especially when you're young and in school, so my main priority was to keep the looks comfortable, relaxed and simple so you can build upon them with accessories.  When you're dressing for a school environment you don't want to feel uncomfortable or over-dressed but a lot of people get bored of the same old "jeans and t-shirt" look so I tried to make these a little bit varied and different than that!

What I'm Wearing:

Look #1
Khaki green combat-style pants - Primark (very similar style/price by ASOS here)
Grey ribbed long-sleeve t-shirt - Primark (similar style by John Lewis here)
Leopard print flats - Faith (similar style by Dorothy Perkins here)
Silver studs - Accessorize
Grey fringed jersey loop scarf - Accessorize (similar style in red by Bleu Dame here)
Metallic bangle - A local boutique (similar style by Oliver Bonas here)
Leather satchel - Joop! (similar style by Topshop here)

Look #2
Khaki green jacket - Bershka (similar style by ASOS here)
Black t-shirt - Mexx
Black pointy-toe flats - ASOS
Black/brown skinny jeans - Cheap Monday
Green disc earrings - Diamonds & Pearls/Bijou Brigitte (similar style here)
Vintage cuff - Stolen from my mom! (similar-ish and very fun Coca Cola style here!)
Leather satchel - Joop! (similar style by Topshop here)

Look #3
Black/brown skinny jeans - Cheap Monday
Dusky pink sweater - Sisley (get it in hot pink here)
Ballerina flats - Dunnes Stores (similar-ish style in grey by La Redoute here)
Dusky pink pashmina - Local market (similar style by M&S here)
Pink and gold feather earrings - Forever21 (get them in peachy pink here)
Leather satchel - Joop! (similar style by Topshop here)

I really hope you guys like the looks.  Please remember that everyone's style is different, so this is by no means the only "right way" to dress for school, it's just my input.
