Back to School Edition: Rory from Wear Abouts

Hey guys, so today is my first day of college (eep!) and while I'm busy adjusting to school and work, I'm excited to introduce you to some really cool bloggers with their own back-to-school fashion! At the end of this week I'll be putting up my own outfit post, but for now, enjoy some variety.

First up is Rory from Wear Abouts. This girl has got to be one of the first fashion bloggers I became friends with, and I am always impressed with her expansive jewelry collection! The girl always has perfect accessories for all her outfits. 

Hey Trendy Teal readers! I'm Rory from Wear Abouts, and I present to you an outfit idea for the first week of school! This outfit is perfect because it's transitionary. While the neons and espadrille wedges keep us hanging on to summer, the darker colors transition into fall.

On a non-fashion related note...Linda told me that I should share with you a back to school story or something along those lines. And while I don't have a story exactly, I have a little characteristic about myself (that hopefully some of you have, too)! I should start by saying that I am a very disorganized person. As in I like to keep all of my things scattered on my floor in my room. Stuff is much easier to find that way, right?? Anyways, at the beginning of every school year, I buy a gazillion binders and color code them into sections. I count out equal number pens and pencils and put them in a shiny new pencil case. I even organize my locker all special into sections. And on the first day, my handwriting is miraculously neat--and I copy down the teacher word for word. In my colorful (NEAT) binders, of course. Let me tell you, that does not last long. By the second or third week, I've got papers strewn in my locker. Empty water bottles stuck in every nook and cranny. Binders are long forgotten. And (*cringe*) sometimes food and candy wrappers. Okay, not sometimes...always. I'm basically a disorganized hoarder. The thing is, I like organization. I really do. And the fact that I try at the beginning of the year proves it! But I just can't keep it up. I guess using binders and keeping a locker clean and a room clean and a closet organized and my laundry all in one place and...wait, let's get back on track. 

What I'm trying to say is, it's just too much effort to stay organized. I'm always hurrying from one place to the next. So why does everything need to be organized? This year, I've finally learned my lesson. I am not buying binders...gasp. And I'm sharing a locker with my most organized friend (who will kick me out if I'm messy)!!! So I'm starting on the right foot this year. Let's see how long I'll last! :)

So, there you have my back to school story! Is anyone else messy and disorganized like me? But, if you had the time, would be organized? Tell me I'm not alone! 
All kidding aside, my outfits are organized! I love to color coordinate in my outfits and wear corresponding accessories. Well, that's all from me! Thanks for letting me guest post Linda! And don't forget to check out my blog, Wear Abouts!

Awe, Rory! :D You're too cute! That's funny about your locker... I'm usually pretty good at keeping things organized once they're organized, so I guess I'm thankful for that! I love your pretty colorblock shirt... all the sheer parts on it are just so neat! And the belt is the perfect pop of pink.

Great post. I love the shoes and arm candy!


indie by heart said...

You sound a lot like me! I love it when things are organized, in their right places (if I had the extra energy it would be great to label every box and pot, haha!) BUT that doesn't last long after cleaning up the house.. Day or two and I can't find anything, or invite anyone here because there's "rubbish" everywhere:D

Cute look on you too, and nice friendship bracelets!

Reading everyone's posts talking about going back to school is really bringing it home for me that I am not going back to school anymore. It's really, really weird.

As for organization, I'm compulsively organized. It freaks my friends out, haha.

Rory said...

Awwww yay !!! Thanks for letting me post Linda :) And just saw your comment on my blog--even though the first day was "frazzling" it was still good I hope?? haha! Are you boarding?
