Back to School!

The time has come for lunches to be packed, empty notebooks to be filled, new friends to be made, tests to be taken, and books to be read. Starting a new school year is a chance to reset your goals and try a little harder to be a better student, athlete, musician, actor, or friend.
Here's some of our advice to get things off to a good start!

It's that time already, kids! School time, that is. 
My School Style: When it comes to school clothes, I've never been one to really dress up for the occasion. In fact, all throughout high school I really only wore sweatshirts, jeans, and boots every day (I'm for real). I like to be comfortable at school. Plus let's be real- at 6 am nobody has energy to pick out a cute complicated outfit. Except for Mandi.  And Hailey. Ok maybe I'm alone in this haha. 
My Advice: This year just remember to be yourself! Be kind to others, make new friends, and don't waste time trying to fit in. Your real friends will love you just the way you are. Be good, and study hard! Here's to the school year! And to sweatpants! Joggers are my new best friend ;)

 Wake Up! Wake Up! First Day Of School!!! First Day Of School!!!! I can't believe it's already here. 
My School Style: Unlike my sister Allie, I've always looked at school as an opportunity to get ready. Gosh we are so different. Maybe my OCD got the best of me, but I always had my outfit picked out the night before so it was easy to get ready and get out on time. I love simple comfortable outfits with one statement accessory that gives the illusion that you're all dressed up. Shoes are my weakness. Boots with a great pair of high-waisted jeans, and a simple shirt will do the trick! 
My Advice: Although clothes are so much fun, school is really all about making memories and developing yourself in as many areas as possible. Challenge yourself this year! Step outside of your little box and try something new! Get involved, have so much fun this year, study hard, and look for someone who needs a friend! Good Luck!!!!

 Mandi stole my Finding Nemo quote. Dang it.
My School Style: Although I love to get dressed up every once in a while, my go-to school outfits consisted of jeans, comfy oversize shirts, and a cute pair of sneakers. I don't know why most teachers like to try to simulate a trip to Antarctica by dropping the temperature of the classroom below zero, but you can easily fight the frostbite with a cute scarf and cardigan to keep warm without looking like a snow bunny. A simple braid is a great school hairstyle; it's easy to transition from gym class to English without having to completely re-do your hair in the middle of the day!
My Advice: Growing up, first day of school usually fell on my birthday, but I learned to make the best of it and enjoy myself at school even if it wasn't easy! Choosing to have a good attitude every day can make all the difference. School for me was never a great social experience, but I learned to enjoy the good friends I did have and get the most out of my education by taking good notes with my colorful pens and reading novels under my desk when I finished my assignments early. Choose to be happy every day!
