11 Major Back to School Essentials
As sad as we are that summer is coming to an end, we love the thrill of a new school year. New school supplies, new friends, new clothes and, most importantly, new trends. Every fall proves busy for schedules across the world with events almost every weekend, birthday parties, club organizations, dinners, lunches, the list goes on and on! Be prepared this year to rock the school year of 2016-2017 in absolute style. Read on for our eleven back to school must haves, available at Maripoza Boutique!
1. Ankle Boots
We love ankle boots and all the different styles available! Pair them with your favorite denim or an adorable little swing dress. We also love them paired with kimonos or shorts and a swing top. They are not only a school basic staple, but they are also a major factor when shopping for your Fall Festival wardrobes. Austin City Limits, anyone? We have backless ankle boots, texturized ankle boots and peep toe ankle boots, too! Whatever you fancy, you can bet that the transition from summer to fall will be an absolute breeze.
2. Graphic Tees
Let your tee do the talking on the first day of school! Whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, a graphic tee can speak for you and highlight your adorable personality. We are absolutely obsessed when it comes to pairing them with a cute Ban.do twist scarf, a fabulous arm party and your favorite pair of premium denim. A graphic tee is an essential part of your daily school wardrobe!
3. Pearl Chokers
Every gal has a pearl choker on her jewelry wish list these days! We have a variety of styles, colors and sizes at Maripoza Boutique. We love pairing them with everything, from little black dresses to a tank and jeans. Wear them with your favorite studs or drop earrings, and make the combination your own!
4. Ban.do and Kate Spade School Accessories
Take notes and organize your life in style with our selection of pens, agendas, coffee tumblers, journals and notebooks by Kate Spade and Ban.do! You are sure to be the teacher’s pet with a selection like this. The everyday girly-girl needs to have fun while being studious, of course!
5. Henry and Belle Denim
Honestly, no wardrobe is complete without a killer pair of denim. Jeans can make or break any outfit, and fortunately, Henry and Belle never disappoints. Whether you love ripped, skinny, boyfriend, colored or cropped denim, we have a huge selection to choose from. Our favorite factor about Henry and Belle is that they last forever! Say goodbye to those old, faded jeans and choose a brand that represents quintessential quality.
6. Hair Accessories
Need a good alternative to styling your hair? Consider our Pink Pewter line or the Ban.do Twist Scarf! The twist scarf adds some adorable 1950s vibes to your #ootd where a Pink Pewter headband can range anywhere from hipster to country chic depending on how you style it! Wrap your hair in an adorable up-do, or wear your hair loose and place your hair accessories on the crown of your head like a Grecian Goddess.
7. Show Those Shoulders!
Are you just loving the trend of off-the-shoulder blouses and dresses? There is something so elegant about a top showing a little shoulder paired with gorgeous slacks or a fabulous pair of skinny jeans, ankle boots and an arm party. Top the look off with sparkly earrings! This is a great look for a PanHellenic event for all the sorority gals out there going through Rush Week.
8. Long, Layered Necklaces
Nothing compliments an outfit more than a long necklace! They pair well with an off-the-shoulder blouse, a lace dress, a little black dress or even a plain tank top/t-shirt and jeans combination. At Maripoza Boutique, we have an array of long necklace styles to choose from and in a variety of shapes and colors.
9. Fabulous Flats by Yosi Samra
We love a shoe that represents style, comfort and convenience! Our Yosi Samra collection is always booming, and we carry so many different colors, textures and styles! Choose from “Tinkerbelle” inspired Pom-Pom flats to animal print, metallics or adorable little flats with bows! They are sophistication redefined for the everyday girl. Take these from day to night, and also take them on your next vacation! These shoes are incredibly comfortable. They also pack well thanks to the convenient foldable feature. Stock up on a few pairs and your feet will thank you!
10. A Fresh New Scent
Mmmmm! Our Library of Flowers collection stands alone! It is a collection of beautiful perfume aesthetics that will be sure to make you stand out in the crowd (in the best way possible)! Choose from small batch hand creams, “parfum cremas” (creams that are a sensory journey and can replace actual perfume in the everyday getting ready routine), bubble baths, shower gels and candles. You will be wanting a “spa night” on the first week of school, so treat yourself!
11. A “Getting Ready for School” Playlist!
