Back to School Fashion

Having just graduated law school, I will never have a first day of school ever again (Lucky me?). But for those heading back to high school (public schools go back in New York on September 9th) or university, I know there's a lot of thought that goes into choosing the perfect first day (or first week!) outfit - except for the girls that attend my all-girl parochial high school alma mater and are cursed by plaid uniforms. I've put together a few outfits that I think make a great statement for the occasion. Although stylized for school, some of these looks may work for your office (so long as you're not in the stuffy legal world like I am) or simply as an everyday fall look! Each of the looks is based on a certain "persona" if you will.

I'm attempting to get a matching makeup look up, but my skin reacted to a new product I've been using (I will be sure to discuss this in a future post). My poor itchy skin :(
