Back to School Rules

By LB

August 28, 2014 | Filed Under Blog Fan Fotos

Yeah, yeah, it’s that time of year again. Back to fancy pencil cases, Hello Kitty erasures, rowdy morning subway rides full of adolescents, and the fresh crisp smell of un-highlighted text books—aka, school! And as you prepare to enjoy your last weekend free of the academic calendar, we thought we’d offer up some vintage fashion rules to live by for Fall 2014. For those heading back to campus, work, or just feeling inspired by the back to school season, this one’s for you!

Yeah, we love food and we love fashion, but sometimes under this summer sun you have to take a minute and wash down the browsing and feasting with something cold and delicious. And cold—did we say that?

Last weekend the sun gave us a sweet preview of all the happy months we have ahead. Now it’s time to get serious about summertime. Hence the age old question that comes with the change of season—what to wear, and where to wear it.

Seniors are putting on their caps and gowns. Kids are promising each other to send letters from camp. There is somebody on the roof almost every (dry) night with a guitar. You walked by a kid with a water gun and almost slowed down because you kind of wanted to get hit. Hot damn, could it be (finally) summer?
