Friday Fab: School Daze

Today, my family and I sent my little sister off to college. Not financially. That would be credit given solely to my parents. But, we drove her out there.
She's attending PSU (Penn State University) this fall and we're all very proud of her.

We made it into a little road trip and though it was very bittersweet, it was great day. She will be missed! The pictures below capture her last day home in NY and first day away at school.
The one to the right is her after my cousin and I treated her to dinner. A few weeks before, we asked her where did she want to go for dinner. Her answer? Red Lobster. Such a teen!
The one to the left is a picture of her luxuriating on her bed after all the hard work we all put in to helping her with setting up her new dorm room. Good times.

So, little sis is the inspiration for today's post. What do you wear to your first college class?
Yes. I've been away to school before, and I know that students -- well most students -- don't really take the time to get all fancy for classes. But, I think it's a good idea during your first few weeks in a new setting, to set a good impression. You don't have to dress up like you're going to the Kentucky Derby but something laid back and versatile works.

Here is the look I put together:

Effortless and stylish is the theme. I added the scarf for a punch of extra color and for that moment in the day when the AC is on full blast & the classroom gets a little chilly. The bag is trendy with enough space to hold books and fit comfortably around the body if that's the way one prefers to wear it.

So here's to Valerie. My baby sister who grew up way too fast, but will always be my favorite girl.

Celebrate the future!
