Happy Saturday everyone!
I have another post for you. This time I wanted to show you what I wore to my first day of school and as an extra I will show you a little tip to transform your day look in to an evening look.
Now the first day of school is always a special day. Everybody came back from vacation or is beginning a new study in another city, don't know anybody etc. Of course you want to show the best version of you and it's always a good idea to dress nice, you know, for that confidence boost. No matter what we say to ourselves, the fist impression is very important. I even do a 'first impression assignment' with my trainees, because fact is: our judgments are based on our appearance. It's not ideal of course but this is what happens. For a first day I wouldn't go overboard with the accessories, make up or anything really. That would only 'scare' people away. It's not a fashionshow but you do want to show your personality and have a nice 'fresh' look, be approachable I would say. In the end we want to make friends, be ourselves and have a great time during college, high-school or whatever.
For my personal look I choose my favorite skirt. It's such a classic, I can combine it with basically anything and I feel good in it. That's very important I think, to feel comfortable and good in your outfit.
My booties and stockings dresses the look up, so for a day look I wanted to dress it down. One of the best ways to do that is by adding denim to your outfit. Denim is always associated with casual wear so works every time. For the color pallet I didn't really go wild. I kept it neutral, mostly because it's not summer anymore in Holland and we are right in that transitional weather. So neutral is always a good idea. I added a big bag to dress the outfit down even more and of course so I can carry my whole life with me to school, because that's a must when you're a girl hihi.
I also added a pink lipstick but you can't really see in the pictures. Just for a fresh look and a pop of color.
One last thing is that I always layer my outfit. You never know what the temperature is in classes. It always varies in my school. Sometimes it's freezing and sometimes it super hot. I also like to go outside during my breaks so always have a jacket, cardigan or maybe a sweater over your blouse etc. Options are endless!
That was really it for my outfit. It's really simple but still fun I think.
To sum up my tips for your first school day:
1. Don't go overboard with make up and or accessories
2. Try something you feel comfortable and good in
3. Use pop's of colors to spice your outfit up
4. Dress in layers
I hope you liked this outfit and my tips! Comment how you would dress for your first day in school and how, would love to read about it :)
My first day was great, I already made some friends hihi.
After school I went out for diner with my friends. Down below are some tips to dress up your look if you don't have time to go home before your evening out. It helped me so maybe you will find it helpful as well.
Have a lovely day everyone!
So if you don't have any time to go home after work or school and still want to look a little dressed for your evening out, here is what I did.
1. Add accessories. A nice necklace, earrings, rings, anything you want to spice up the look
2. Change your big day- bag for a nice clutch or little bag
3. Add lipstick or smoke your eyes up
4. Combine different materials in your day time outfit.
In my case I combined a chiffon top with denim, a leather skirt and black stockings. The trick is to remove all 'casual' items so you can have your evening look.
(I obviously took off my denim)
Hope it helped and have a great day!
