A new school year means there will be lots of serious and tough decisions you will have to make ahead of you, so prepare yourself. Everything is like this or that. Denim or leather? Black or white? I am telling you, back to school shopping is nothing you should be taken lightly. (just kidding...or not)
SET A BUDGET
It's easy to get carried away with all the excitement that goes on for the upcoming school year. Whatever it is, clothes, beauty or stationery, the temptation is real. Create a shopping list for each category and set a certain budget for each one.

CREATE A CAPSULE WARDROBE
A capsule wardrobe is the answer you are looking for so as to avoid all the unnecessary drama first thing in the morning. Basics are the alpha and omega and can't be missing from anyone's wardrobe. A white tee and a good-fitting pair of jeans can be lifesavers when it comes to those "nothing to wear" kind of days.
COMFY YET STYLISH
Our major inspo? Off-duty models of course. Looking effortless cool in class is something that we definitely love. Snuggling into my oversized sweater while looking cute? Can't say no to that. Make comfort your N.1 priority for clothes since you will end up gravitating towards those pieces most of the time.

THE RULE OF 3
Something that saved me lots of trouble while getting ready was a well-coordinated wardrobe. That doesn't mean it has to look plain or trends are off-limit. The trick on achieving an easy to mix and match wardrobe is nothing else than avoiding spontaneous purchases. Before purchasing an item try to think at least 3 different ways to style it with the clothes you already own.

SHOP ON SALES
Don't wait till last minute to restock your basic wardrobe such as plain tees, sweaters, jeans, sneakers, etc. Take advantage of the early summer sales and get yourself some deals.

PERSONALIZE YOUR BACKPACK
Even though it is a key-item that we all carry with us every single day its aesthetic purpose is really underestimated. I love the idea of personalizing your backpack. You can DIY it with paint, doodles, your favorite tv shows, songs, anime or accessorize it with pins and stickers. I feel it is a great way to express a piece of yourself to others especially if you are an introvert. It may become the trigger to start a conversation with someone you would never think of.

INVEST ON YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY
Instead of buying a tone of makeup products that will only clog your pores and you will have no time to put in the morning anyway, my advice? Invest in skincare. It takes only 5 minutes of your morning routine and it is the best way to glow up your skin.
