back to school, back to basics

This week I went back to school for my senior year! I'm almost done and actually excited to start classes. I think I've finally gotten over the "first day of school jitters" after sixteen years of school. 

This red bag is my new school bag I got in a little gift shop on the east side of the state. It's perfect with all the right pockets for my laptop, paper, pens and accessories to get me through the day. 
I kept the overall look very basic; black pants (my go-to fall comfy pant) a leather jacket (perfect over any top) and a flowy silk shirt underneath to soften the leather layer. I added the python flats (seen here) for a comfortable all day shoe. It's nice to add patterns/textures even in the smallest way to every look. 
Basic neutrals with texture.
