If ever there was a term for a day like today, I'd hope they would choose my name for it,

"BACK TO SCHOOL WEATHER!"


It's what I always feel when it's the first fall-like day of the season.  It always reminds me of walking across campus with a smile on my face and some pep in my step.  Seriously, I wake up about 1000% happier and cheerier than any other time of the year.  There's just something about that brisk air, the crisp chill, the fact that there's no humidity-it all reminds me of football season and the promise of falling leaves and hot-chocolate.  And yes, I get overly giddy about it all.  I guess school, football, cocoa, my soon-to-be love affair with turtlenecks, etc. it's all a little bit of "all-American girl goodness" I can claim for myself.

It's no secret, FALL IS MY FAVE SEASON and today's weather brought back all my FAVE MEMORIES of school.  I always looked forward to the first day of school, and the excitement of seeing who was in your class, if  you'd be seated next to some cute boy, the note-taking, the random knowledge learned in classes totally unrelated to my fashion major, oh it was the best! I was a total goody-goody and loved going to class.  (I even had perfect attendance my first semester in college when for 4 months I battled a raging case of mono!).  So what better outfit to wear, than something that reminds me of school days of yesteryear?  

A classic denim skirt and boot combo of course.


To me, this outfit is nothing but BACK TO SCHOOL/FALL IS HERE--YIPPEE!  I have worn a variation of this outfit every year to school since I was 7!  Ummmm, hmmmm--maybe that's not such a good thing.  Time for a change?  NONSENSE!

I can vividly remember the first time I gave this look a whirl.   <picture it: 1986, me in the 1st grade-blonde high side ponytail, rocking my acid wash denim mini and DIY tie-dye t-shirt made in Brownies>  I should give my actual childhood look a try nowadays, I think acid wash and tie-dye would be rather cool!
But here's my more updated version--after wearing such an outfit for 23years, is it safe to say it's a classic?
*Orange 3/4 sleeve sweater-H&M
*White wifebeater tank-Hanes
*Blue denim skirt-Gap
*Brown suede boots-Carlos Santana (yeah who buys that?)
*Ivory scarf-Old Navy

I just realized, honestly I cannot even describe the way I feel on a day like today.  The gibberish above does my feelings no justice.  I cannot come up with the words.  I seriously really really like Fall and I'm kinda frustrated right now knowing that I can't fully convey my thoughts on it.  All I can say is I am so beyond excitement for the upcoming season; it's nuts!

And don't even get me started on NYC in the Fall--oh, to die for!
