Back to School Edition: April from Delicately Fierce

Hey guys, so today's guest blogger is April from Delicately Fierce! She's always got some amazing trendy pieces (see below - crochet shorts!) and cool outfits. Check out her back-to-school outfit tips.

Hello readers of Trendy Teal! I'm April from Delicately Fierce. I was asked by the lovely Linda to guest post here for her back to school series, and I'm so excited to share my style and tips with you all. This is my ideal back to school outfit (well for me, it would be a first day of college outfit). I'm from California and the heat here is sweltering, so chances are it's probably still going to be just as hot when school starts. I decided to style my look around these lace shorts. I chose these lace shorts because they are feminine and not your typical kind of shorts. Because my lace shorts are the main focus of my outfit, I decided to keep everything else simple and casual. As for accessories, I would wear these playful heart sunglasses. 

Here are some tips for your back to school outfit :)

TIP #1: You don't want to look like you tried too hard for your first day, so pick one piece from your wardrobe and style your outfit around that. In my outfit, I chose my lace shorts and chose to pair it with this simple black top and black wedge sandals. Notice how I chose something complex and then simplified everything else. In this way, you get a fashionable look without looking like you tried too hard. You can also add your favorite accessory to give your look that extra style like I did with my heart sunglasses.

TIP #2: Be comfortable! You're going to school, not a fashion runway. So wear something you can comfortably sit in all day. I chose these lace shorts and black top because they are super comfortable. Also, these wedge sandals have a little boost in height but are still very comfortable. If your feet get cold easily especially in air conditioned classrooms, I'd switch out the sandals with some oxfords. 

TIP #3: Bring a light jacket in case you get cold. Some of my classrooms were freezing cold, so I always had to bring a jacket or cardigan to keep warm in those classes. I would go with a leather jacket because it matches everything.

TIP #4: Bags are important accessories to your outfit! Why not go for a trendy backpack this year? My back to school backpack choice would be this floral backpack I spotted at Wet Seal the other day.

Hope these tips were helpful!
