My Last 1st Day of School Outfit

See the resemblance?

In honor of today being my very last 1st day of school, I'm embarrassing myself and showing you my first 1st day of school- little miss Michaela's 1st day of Kindergarten. You're welcome.  Mom, if you're reading this, don't cry! Let's just all pretend my bangs weren't overtaking my forehead and my socks weren't pulled up mid-calf.  Clearly I rocked that little uniform of mine :)

After 18 years, braces, some fashion sense, and the two full years it took me to grow out those bangs in 4th grade wearing "spring clips" to hold them back every day, here's my last 1st day of school outfit...and yes, I did buy this especially for the first day. Judge me if you will! :)

 Dress: Anthropologie
Shoes: Nordstrom Rack 
Belt: Target

So, today I'm off to start my first day at my new school. Hopefully this dress {that I totally splurged on...I know!} will help me get through the day. 

Did you do back to school shopping when you were in school as well?? I can't wait to tell you all about my new classes. Let's just say I'm going to be so overwhelmed with school...but in the best way possible. Hooray!
Have a great Wednesday!
Love,

  19. That dress is amazing and I want it! Love that its on sale too. I especially like the yellow belt with it, what a cute detail! You were adorbs in kindergarten. Were you tall? Maybe its an optical illusion of the socks.

  22. Love your dress and the throwback photo! I rocked the bangs for most of my elementary school years and I still hassle my Dad for it (he's pro-bangs LOL My almost 8 yr old sister is rocking the bangs now) Hope you had a great first day! I looked into FIDM years ago when I was an interior design major. I ended up switching to psychology but interior design is still a passion and hobby I love :)
