As August wanes, my thoughts turn to buying my overpriced books and saying goodbye to my friends at home for another semester. Both things are equally depressing, so I tried to cheer myself up by going back to school wardrobe shopping! A little retail therapy does wonders for the soul. I picked up a few things that I can’t wait to wear on campus, and I’m sure I’ll be wearing these pieces way too often for my own good!
When I enter a Forever 21, it’s physically impossible for me to leave without buying something. The fast-fashion giant is my holy grail for testing out trends as well as picking up great basics! You have to be careful when buying cheaply however; I always check the seams and fabrics of pieces to make sure I’m getting the best quality possible for that low price. I’ve been disappointed before by things falling apart on me after just a few wears, so I take care in picking things out now. Here’s what I picked up!
I grabbed this lovely maroon knit sweater dress. It’s light enough to wear now, and easy to layer later with tights and oxfords! It fits like a loose bodycon on me, not skintight but not a shift either.
I also grabbed these round sunnies to replace my trusty Amazon ones…sadly I lost them at a friend’s house the other day (RIP, sunnies…), but I love these new ones just as much! Find them here for just $5.90.
2. and 3. I picked up a couple of crop tops, because you can never have enough, right? This black racerback and front crop is a loose knit, and it’s so versatile! The racer-front adds enough to it to make it interesting. I also grabbed this Breakfast Club cropped tee from Rue 21-I love eighties movies, and it was just $10! Keep your eyes peeled for a look featuring it soon! 🙂
4. I’m in love with denim. This denim shift dress is the perfect piece to layer for fall, and since it’s sleeveless, it can be worn now too! Forever 21 is offering free shipping on all denim right now too! I tucked a bronze necklace that I found on the sale rack for $3.90 under the collar.
5,6,7. I picked up this creme lipstick in the shade Sangria, as well as these two lipliners. I can’t wait to test them all out!
Are you ready to go back to school? Have you picked up anything exciting for fall yet? Do you love Forever 21 too? Let me know in the comments! I can’t wait to go back to school and wear all of these. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
