Beautiful Pastels in Autumn- Back to School Thursday

Beautiful Pastels in Autumn

Hey everyone! Today is my back to school Thursday! This series is being completed slowly, but surely! How have you liked the outfits so far? Anyways, I gave myself a little challenge when doing this post, I went to my polyvore and began to create a set...but instead of searching through the endless options to find a top I really loved I picked the first top I saw and told my self I had to style an outfit around it for fall.
Now when I saw this pastel green top I wondered how I could make  it suitable for fall. Jeans are easy and I always wear them in the fall so I added the jeans to the outfit. Next I decided I would add a jacket! I love this military style, and even though the military trend has faded a little bit, don't be afraid to incorporate some of those pieces, just don't go all out! Next I added a purse, which I realized, I never add purses to the outfits on my blog..why not?...I guess I just forgot! I use purses all of the time! I will not be seen with out a purse big enough to fit a water bottle! I chose two options for a purse. A deep jewel toned purple one and a brown backpack style one! I absolutely love the color of the purple purse! The brown one I chose a little more for functionality. I wanted it to work for school, but still be cute! For shoes I added some mustard yellow flats! I love them and mustard yellow is a big trend this year. To follow this trend I wouldn't recommend going all out, I would do simple accent pieces like shoes, a purse or even a belt. Now to finish off this look I took a purple scarf that matched the purse to keep you a little bit warmer in the fall and some gold studs to add some jewelry, they are simple and add a little extra to the outfit without being overwhelming! I added a bonus to the outfit with a nail polish! It is this lovely gray-brown color! It would look great with this outfit, but also with any other outfit! This is really nice because then you won't have to change the color of your nails everyday and with school you rarely have time!
