Blazer & Jeans Uniform

What to wear for the first day of college ootd
So, let me tell you...

Now that back to school season is in the air, I've been reminiscing about my collegiate days. The structured schedules, late-night fraternizing, class design projects, the list goes on. It wasn't until my junior or senior year when a few friends took me thrift shopping for the first time and I discovered my first vintage blazer - it was with that piece that I realized the ease of the blazer and jeans uniform. Lo and behold, getting dressed became a no-brainer, which was perfect for when I was running late to my early morning classes. If I could go back in time I would have stocked up a little sooner. The classic combo can be worn with heels or even your favorite sneakers. But admittedly, I was "that girl" wearing heels to my college classes, fortunately for me, the campus wasn't that big. :)

If this #ootd was taken today instead of a couple of months ago, I would have swapped out the shoes I wore here for the metallic silver block heels from Who What Wear's new Target collection. Have you seen them!? They're so cute! 

To this day, whenever I have no idea what to wear or don't have time to think about it, I reach for one of my many blazers. I always feel like I'm dressed to the nines when I have on a structured blazer, my comfiest jeans, and a cute shoe, even if I only had 15 min to get reaady.
