school's in session

Oh for the love of back to school shopping... I always wanted to have the shopping part without the going back to homework and tests part... a girl can dream, huh?
But there is a reason that the September issue is the largest for Vogue, women love the fresh start that Fall fashions offer... the new season, blank slate, possibility of layers type of shopping extravaganza that just isn't the case at any other time of year
{ What I Wore: Topshop peplum top // Old Navy jersey pencil skirt // Steve Madden nude heels // boutique necklace }
I might not be a "traditional" student anymore, but that doesn't stop me from a little back to school shopping or first-day-of-school outfit picking outing!
I guess I won't be riding my bike to work in this body con skirt, but I love that this look is head to to jersey knit... comfortable and chic!
What would you wear for your back to school fashion statement?
Any other still-in-school adults like me?
(I use that term adult on myself loosely!)
Today I am linking up over on Long Distance Loving for Friday's Fancies: Back to School
See the rest of the start of the semester styles { here }
