5 Back to School OOTD Ideas

 

The holidays (school break for students) are over---I know---back to the daily grind. 

But hey, it ain't that bad. After all, it's a fresh start.

 

Another 365 days to look forward to and spend doing the things we love (and dread). That's just the way it is.

 

So for all the students out there, get your notebooks and pens ready for a quick lesson on OOTD fashion essentials for 2019.

 

Athleisure

 

Still solid in 2019. Aside from being extremely comfortable, this style is easy to setup and is perfect for the student who needs something easy to put on and move with as you go from one class to the next. It's also a chance to show off your spanking sports shoe collection. At its core, shoes are the main stand outs for this fashion ensemble. To spice things up, combo it with your favorite personalized t-shirt for more street cred.

 

The Neutralist

 

Pairing a neutral hue with your favorite fashion pieces is always safe and never out of style, it's a solid go-to mix if you don't feel like going all-out. Pairing your basic neutral-colored blouse to a pair of jeans with dark wash or a simple skirt always works and takes out the hassle of figuring out what to wear. Tag this under your “Basics” list and never waste any more time next time you're running late for class.

 

Back to Basics

 

It always happens---you pull out an all-nighter for a big exam and fall asleep on your desk---books and all. The alarm rings, you check the clock: You only have 30 minutes before the exam! With Flash-like speed, you take a 1-minute shower and spend 10 seconds deciding what to wear. Your go-to outfit for this situation? A personalized t-shirt and your favorite khaki pants. Perfect for no-nonsense style and it’s super-comfy which helps you remain cool and calm during the exam.

 

Go Black

 

There’s a reason why stylists recommend that girls always have their “Little Black Dress” sitting ready in the closet. First, black is excellent in projecting a slimmer figure. Lighter colors tend to highlight some of our curves that we would rather not have anyone notice. Also, black matches well with other colors, so you can wear almost anything with it and still look awesome.

 

Revenge of the Nerds

 

Decades ago, your stereotypical “nerd” or “geek” look has always been the butt of jokes in movies. Today, however, you’ll see people flaunting their wares donning their preferred “geek” wardrobe (imagine the uniform they have in Harry Potter movies). What does a typical nerd outfit look like? It usually starts with collared shirt partnered with a pair of chinos. You layer it with a cardigan, your pair of favorite formal shoes and a pair of spectacles (with black rims) finishes the look. This style is timeless and never grows old.

a beauitful and fitting end
One Day (Nights Series #9) - A.M. Salinger
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is the final book, book NINE in the Nights Series, and to get the full enjoyment of this one, you really MUST at least read book one: One Night, and book three: Tokyo Heat. I would STRONGLY recommend you read them all, though! Not least because I said so, but they are rather awesome and I am really sad to see the end of this group of people! Gabe and Cam are planning their wedding and Ethan is in charge of their joint stag/bachelor party. He pulls that off beautifully! There are a few surprises, a trip across the globe to see family, and so much love, between each couple, not just Gabe and Cam, my sister would say "please pass the bucket" and make retching noises! Each coupe have a *scene* in this book, but the emphasis is on Gabe and Cam and the run up to the wedding. After Cam ran when Gabe said those three little words, I wasn't sure they would get this far, but as the first couple in this series, it's only right and proper that they be the first to tie the knot. Each scene is hawt and sexy and well written. Each person in the pairing has a say so we get each and every thought these people have, as they begin the wedding celebrations the week before. Ethan's planning is brilliant and how he manages to keep it a secret from everyone, especially Joe, is beyond me! I loved what Gabe and Ethan did for Cam and Joe and I hated Gabe's family for what they did to him, but they DO redeem themselves, so were somewhat forgiven, but not totally! But the bit that got me?? The vows between Gabe and Cam. Bear in mind, I started this book at 215am, cos I couldn't sleep, I did not stop til 430 when I finished. And I bawled my bloody eyes out! So much so, I woke the teenager up in the other room! I mean, the love between these two guys, between EACH couple really, jumps off the page and slaps you about the face so much! Hence the "warm and fuzzies", AND "too stinking cute", along with the "fan yourself, its a hot one" tag! I don't think I have any other warm and fuzzies on the fan yourself shelf, but then again, Gabe and Cam were the founder members of the fan yourself shelf! The epilogue is rather awesome, and I pray to every deity and god known to man, and then some, that Ms Salinger will write a followup to this series, and call it One More Day! You'll see what I mean when you read that epilogue! While it's always sad to see a series end, it's made a little bit less sad when it has such a beautiful and fitting end. Thank you, Ms Salinger, for introducing me to your people, thank you, indeed, for stepping away from your usual fare and writing about them! I loved them all, but Gabe and Cam will always be my favourites. 5 full and shiny stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Kids forging friendships over mysteries
Vecinos y Detectives En Belgrano - Maria Brandan Araoz

This series is just as cute as I remembered.

 

Loved the way the city is part and parcel (something I can enjoy even more now that I know the places this talks about), and that the kids are such flawed little hellions. Their little prides and petty fights where so spot on, as are the friendships they develop.

 

Bit of a dark-horse list-wise, but since it fits so well, there it goes to fill my Amateur Sleuth square besides my non-English reading project.

a really fitting end!
Haka Ever After (The Sin Bin #7) - Dahlia Donovan
There comes along, once in a rare while, a book that leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzie inside. A book that is far too stinking cute for its own good. A book that wraps up an ENTIRE series in so few pages. A book that is simply, brilliant. This is book 7 in the Sin Bin series, and if you are just coming across this book, you should at the very LEAST read book two, The Caretaker, which is where Freddie and Taine meet. You should read them all, though! Taine plucks up the courage to ask Freddie to marry him, but first he asks for Freddie's fathers permission. Since their first meeting wasn't exactly a tea party, Taine has reservations they won't chop him up and hide the pieces! But the fathers surprise him, and then Taine has to actually propose. The proposal delivers, for me, the best line of the book! Freddie asks, "why marriage?" Taine replies, "When they write our story after we're gone, it should read that I loved you more than anything else in the world. More than rugby. More than you love cheese. I want our names connected - intertwined. Legally. So no knobdobbers can claim I wasn't dedicated to you. So, will you marry me?" The wedding plans are amusing, with all the previous characters taking part. So you can imagine what they all get up to! There is, of course, some messing about with food, cos ya'll know Ms Donovan's boys like to play with their food! Bit that made me cry?? When all of Taine's rugby team mates perform the Haka at the wedding. That bit made me cry more that what happened on the honeymoon! It's always sad to see a series end, but what a way to go! 5 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
