5 Fall Outfit Ideas for the First Day of School

The weather in Portland for the past few days has been quite dramatic and it was definitely setting some fall vibes.

AND it’s still August *insert eye roll emoji* .

Even though, the past few days I’ve been in denial of summer ending (I’m still in denial lol) I’m slowly… v e r y slowly beginning to accept that fall is making its arrival. You know how you can just smell the season changing in the air? Yeah, that’s definitely happening right now.

So I may not be so keen on the weather cooling down this soon but it did bring me inspiration for some fall outfit ideas – which I do like πŸ˜‰ . To make it simple for you guys to create (and for me to do several outfit changes with no bathroom haha), I used a simple black tank dress as the base of all the outfits pictured here.

Well, if you need an outfit for the first day of school or you just don’t have anything to wear tomorrow, I got you covered. So here you are, 5 outfit ideas for the first day of school.
