OK, you caught me…I’m not heading back to school today but back to work (bleh) but when I was a kid, the Tuesday after Labor Day was a sartorially imperative day. Heading back to class, it was essential to look cool (like you had matured over the summer and had, like, real life experiences- ya know?) but too much apparent effort and you were dead in the water. In fourth grade this meant wearing a new sweatshirt with an imprint of a necklace. I thought it was the cat’s pajamas but a few hours in a sun-soaked classroom and I began to regret my long-sleeved choice. From then on I also considered the balmy temperatures in my back to school approach.
Nowadays weather-appropriate, casually chic clothes are my M.O. for most outings. Today I decided to start Fall off on the right foot with a dress that is channeling both this season’s reddish mauve color du jour and also the fit-and-flare silhouette that was such a feature in Alexander McQueen’s Autumn offerings. Now, you know I have a firmly held belief about fit-and-flare dresses: namely that they are made for twirling…
Did you expect anything less? Happy Tuesday!
