First Day of School

Today is the first day of school for many students–around this country, at least. I remember the anticipation, especially when I was in high school and college. I had my clothes all laid out, ready for the first day, the first chance to impress after a long summer, the first chance to wear all those new school clothes.

If I had a cute outfit like this one from Iki Ikarus of Dutch Touch, I would have worn it. With its cute pullover short sleeve sweater and shrug and its sweet little denim miniskirt, it would have been the ideal first day back to school outfit. Iki Ikarus does some really fine work, mixing photorealistic textures with hand drawn work to make her clothing stand out.

Such a fresh look needs a clean skin and long wavy hair. I chose Sabina Gully’s Curly Hair. This cute style has a little bobby pin holding back the voluminous locks. I remember having hair like this in college *sigh*. The skin is from Pulse’s Timeless set–not heavy with makeup.

First Day of School

I paired this with the first pair of sculpty boots I ever bought—the Dunes from Maitreya. They were the most happening thing when they first came out and have borne the test of time. When I first saw them, I realized they were the boots I always wanted but never had—soft scrunchy suede that goes well with jeans or skirts.
