What says back to school and back to fall more than hitting up your local drive-in for one last summer-time hurrah (and some fried food and ice cream)! I always get so excited for the fall (my favorite season), but theres something extra nostalgic about the end of summer, wanting to hang on to every last bit of it. And no matter how much I despise the late summer heat I never let it get in the way of a cute summer outfit!
What better time to try out a trend that brings back some middle school nostalgia. Not wanting to relive the glory of my 6th grade fashion sense, I couldn't bring myself to want to wear a denim skirt for quite a while now, but then I spotted this one from Bluetique! It's literally called the "Take me Back" denim skirt, I mean how perfect. The distressed hemline made it for me, but it's the high-waisted aspect that truly sold me on them (let's be honest, if its not high-waisted I probably won't wear it). You're looking at a new late summer/ early fall staple piece for me folks.
I saw the "overall effect" top, also from Bluetique, had grommets and an exposed back and I immediately fell in love. Not to mention I have loved this blue-gray shade since I first saw it everywhere in Italy this past spring. It was practically in every-other store front window display and I've been obsessed ever since. I loved pairing it with my denim skirt for an outfit that transitions perfectly in to early fall by just swapping the skirt for some high-waisted denim jean. The best part about these pieces? You can snag them for 15% off on Tuesdays at Bluetique's "Student Tuesdays"! I'm always down for a deal (duh) and theres no better time to take advantage of this one than for some stylish back to school shopping! Make sure to click the Bold links to shop the top and skirt!
Since graduating from college this past May I've found myself often caught up in nostalgic thoughts about being in Lexington these past four years. If you keep up with me on Instagram you know how much I have loved discovering local spots that range from fashion to food! We only just discovered Parkette this summer, but Bluetique was one of the first shops I went in to as a freshman and now post-grad I still love venturing over there! Its in my favorite area near campus, surrounded by other little boutiques and some great coffee shops, Bluetique is the perfect place to stop in to while getting in to your back-to school groove!
You'll find me rocking each of these pieces quite often the rest of this summer and in to early fall! I totally recommend you head in to Bluetique to find some new back to fall staples for yourself! Check out below for my top back-to-school/fall picks from Bluetique!
