Back To School: Shopping

Back to School: Shopping
Welcome back to my blog. Today’s blog post is going to be a continuation of my #BTSwithMatida  series. Today we will be branching off from my last blog post was talking about picking the perfect backpack and clothing color schemes for back to school shopping. In this blog  post I am going to be elaborating on the clothing part of back to school.
So lets start with what I was talking about Monday. Which was the clothing color scheme. A clothing color scheme is having a set theme of colors that you feel are versatile and can be worn together in many different ways. So more for your buck.
The clothing color scheme is a really helpful method. It allows for you to avoid buying unnecessary clothing, coming home realizing nothing goes together, and like I said before you get more for your buck (and who doesn’t love that). Not only is having a clothing color scheme good for clothing but as I brought up in my last blog post it can also help with finding the perfect book bag , accessories, and even shoes.
Once you have a color scheme. You can get to the fun part and that is actually going shopping.
(My clothing color scheme is black, white, cream, beige, denim, gray, red, yellow, and burnt orange.) (Not that you guys care)
While you are shopping something I would recommend going with someone you trust and will tell you the truth about the clothing you are trying on (does something good or bad on you). The trick with this is bringing someone who has similar style than you so that way the reason you guys don’t agree on style isn’t because you don’t have similar styles.
While you are shopping remember that it is important to remember practically. By practicality I mean that something isn’t to short and you are going to grow of it. Or that something is to tight and you will only wear once. This even apply’s to shoes and accessories. For example if you buy a leather jacket with silver hardware you probably want to wear a silver watch with it rather than a gold watch. An example for shoes would be if you are in high school or college you most likely can wear sandals but if you live in a city that has a more topical climate and rains a lot you most likely want to invest in 1 pair of sandals but you shouldn’t spend all of your money on sandals maybe buy more sneakers or durable flats.
Since we are on the topic of shoes let’s talk about some practical shoes. I do not feel that  sandals and flip flops are that practical only because you wear them for a short time out of the school year (unless you live somewhere like Florida). So I would recommend something like sneakers  they are versatile and practical.

It is fine if you are not a sneaker fan you can go for a versatile flat.

Now lets talk about some accessories. I know accessories that are practical and cute sounds like a fairy tale but I feel they’re are some accessories that are just that. A fairy tale.

So that is all for today. An overview of all the tips will be below. Every back to school post will have outfit post from now one.

Welcome to B2S season

Back T0 School

Today’s post is going to be starting my #BTSwithMatida series and I am super excited to be back blogging. So I  will be doing a post about my own back to school experience soon, so stay tuned for that and I hope to hear from you guys about your back to school experience as well.

Today’s post is going to be regarding something that I feel we all do but don’t think that much about and that’s picking out a backpack. Now this seems like something very small and unimportant but in fact your backpack is the accessory to every outfit you wear from the beginning to the last day of school (if it doesn’t break or get dirty).

Which is why you should always pick a backpack that you feel.

A: Complements your style.

and

B: Is a color that can go with a lot of the clothes you wear.

But before getting to my tips on how to pick the perfect backpack we have to talk about the thing that effects every student unless you are in a private school and that is clothing. Every morning you have to pick out something to wear and some days are better than others but you still have to wear clothing (I hope). So I wanted to give you guys a quick tip about back to school shopping.

When you go back to school shopping it can be very overwhelming seeing so many styles, colors, and patterns. So my tip for not getting lost in what you wanted and ending up getting clothing pieces you will never wear is before you go back to school shopping have a clothing color scheme. That may sound crazy but it really helps to keep you from becoming overwhelmed. I would recommend picking colors that you feel are interchangeable so that you can make more outfits, plus you get more for your money.

(Some examples of clothing color scheme below)

Now that you have your color scheme it will make finding a backpack so much simpler. When you are picking your backpack keep in mind whether you want an accent backpack.

And with that also comes whether you want patterned or plain.

Well that’s all for today but I will be back Friday for another #BTSwithMatida blog post. Also Down below I have some backpack tips and some more backpack examples plus the color scheme example.

Don’t forget to comment and follow.


Backpack Tips:

1. Find something durable.

2. Find something that will go with majority if not all of your clothing.

3. Make sure it feels comfortable on the shoulders when there is weight on it .

4. Be happy with it I mean you have to keep it for a while.

How to keep your backpack from getting dirty:

1. Do not put it on the floor of the school (if you can).

2. Do not  lean on the wall with your backpack on.

3. Have a spot for your backpack (not on the floor) at home.
