2016’s best back-to-school (and work) fashion finds
Wake up, wake up, it’s the first day of school! Time to set those alarms to get ready for class, or take your kids for their first day back. High school and college students are super different, yet very similar at the same time. High school seniors are dreading the first day, and college students are happy to be back to get it over with. But both barely care what they’re wearing, they just want to look decent in the process.
Professional women and students who work are thinking the same. You want to look good, but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on something you’re wearing a few hours out of your day. Class is in session ladies with back to school and work fashion finds! Grab your pen and paper because it’s time to take some notes for this school year’s closet must haves!
These are perfect for the office due to the fact that you want to still be able to walk to your car after work. Block heels are uber comfortable yet stylish at the same time for that everyday use heel.
Those sneakers you bought that released this summer are starting to collect dust but now it’s time to bring them out and stunt for the first day. Everyone will be checking them out and having flashbacks to the release date when the site kept crashing but they were so close to copping the shoe.

Oh, did you say it was the first day of school was here? Sorry, I couldn’t hear you because my headphones are in. Headphones are just as important as your bookbag for this generation. They are always good to have between classes to listen to your fav music or just as a back up to avoid that guy who has been trying to get your number all summer.

Make sure you keep a quirky and stylish pair of sweats in your drawer so you won’t get caught slippin’ the day your hand hit the snooze button one too many times.
A simple dress and pointed heels are def the office uniform for the professional woman. It’s easy to put together and just a classic in the office world. Show your personality with the color scheme of your dress or the bold pop in your shoes.
