If you're like me, not only are you going to be tackling your first semester of college this fall, but you're also going to try and juggle a job on top of that. What was my biggest concern? "How will I find time to study when I'm also working a lot?" Nope. "When am I ever going to have time to sleep?" Nope. "How am I going to find time to get home and completely rework my school outfit into a work-appropriate outfit?" Yes. Seriously. That was it. Should I get my priorities straight? Yeah, probably.
But on the off-chance that any of you are struggling with a similar dilemma, I threw together a little set of how I plan on going from school-to-work in a fairly easy and painless manner. I think the key is starting with basics. If you keep the base of your outfit simple, the rest of your options are endless. With a baggy sweater and a pair of boyfriend jeans, you can easily go from comfy/casual to edgy/chic with just a few quick changes. Toss your knit cardigan for a leather bomber. Kick off your converse and slide into some heels. Run a comb through your hair and spritz a bit of perfume on your wrists. In five minutes you'll have completely reworked your outfit and you'll be completely ready for work (if you work in retail like me and are allowed to wear jeans and a sweater...). If not, you're ready for a night out with your friends. Which sounds better than work anyways.
