The outfit I wore for the first day of school is not very "glamorous." I decided to go for comfortable rather than extremely cute. After all, a good friend of mine advised me, "Don't worry about what you're going to wear on your first day. Everyone else is going to be so focused on their own cute outfit, they might not even notice yours." So I went for a little cute and a lot comfortable. Best of all, my outfit was completely modest.
Prices and Origins:
Shirt: Old Navy, $12
Pants: Levi's, Kohl's, $40 (although these are usually on sale at the store. I got them for $31.)
Shoes: TOMS, $55 (Unfortunately, these TOMS are not being made anymore. Here is the link to a cute, similar pair.)
Necklace: Okay, this was an expensive accessory because it was a gift from my parents. You can purchase a similar but less expensive pair of pretend pearls for $6.50 at Charlotte Russe.
Total Modest Outfit Cost (not including shoes): $49.50
Total Modest Outfit Cost (including shoes): $113.50
Overall, I was very satisfied with this outfit. It was comfortable and cozy, and I got a lot of compliments on the blouse. Nothing was slipping around or too tight, so I didn't constantly have to worry what I looked like. Even though it was a simple dark gray, I loved the flowery design towards the top. It was big enough so that it didn't draw specific attention to a certain part of me, but the design was simple and attractive. I loved the beading. I'll go ahead and show you a close up picture of my blouse so you can see the intricate beading designs. Mind you, these pictures were taken after I got home from school, so I don't look very "fresh."
My new jeans were also very comfortable. They came in "short" size, so I didn't have to get them hemmed. I also like the way they fit. Comfortably and not too tight.
My shoes were old, but they were as comfortable as always. I love TOMS. Even though this specific style of shoes is no longer for sale, I'll go ahead and show you a picture of my shoes. They give facts about "if the world was a village of 100 people", how many would have AIDS, how many would have no shoes, etc. They're amazing.
For my hairstyle, I left it down and straight. I wore some eye makeup, but that's it.
Perfectly modest, I'm thinking.
