Summer Favorites and Procrastination [Welcome Back to School!]

First off, I would like to thank all of our followers and readers, as well as the people who have let me take a picture of them for #riceootd! 

While we're experiencing a 'cold front,' let's be honest. It's still going to be summer for at least a few more weeks, so here are a few of our summertime favorites! 

Kai Holnes, one of our bloggers and editors, is rocking the mixed leather look in her favorite summer #ootd shown below. She says sunglasses are the item for this summer because "they're an item you really don't get to use during the rest of the year as much as you use them during the summer. With Amazon and Forever 21 carrying cheap and awesome sunnies in all styles and colors they can add so much to your outfit!" Houston is a pretty sunny city year round, so sunglasses are a good staple to keep in your purse or backpack!

Meanwhile, our other blogger and resident make up guru, Ali Pineiro, "love[s] a good maxi dress. They're comfortable and effortless, but still fashionable. Maxi's are also great because of their versatility. I pair mine with wedges for going out to dinner or for a nicer occasion, but you can still dress it down with some open flat sandals." Taking a tip from Jenn Im from her latest back to school look book, you can also pair a maxi dress with a crop top/cropped sweater to make it look like you're wearing a maxi skirt. Perfect for transitioning into the fall and still look dressy casual (or just dressy! or just casual? the key lies in the shoes....)

Lastly, there is me... This was also supposed to be my introduction of sorts, being the first time I post as the new head editor of 6100 Main and this being the first official blog post of this school year! I'm Thu Nguyen, and over the summer I developed a fondness for oversized t-shirts. I love tucking them in halfway for a relaxed look, and I can shop in both the men's and women's sections! Honestly, guys have cooler shirts than girls sometimes. Dress it up with the jewelry and skinny jeans, or dress it down with cut off shorts and a snapback. Or you can go for the "rebellious trust fund baby"* look  and mix it up...

In terms of avoiding those amino acids, I think this post was a good use of my time. Thank you for joining me in procrastinating by reading this post! We have a LOT in store for the future (vlogs! more Instagram/Facebook features, student profiles, makeovers??!!) so stay tuned and get excited! 

ALSO! Do you want to join the team? Be a blogger, make people Facebook famous, and have an excuse to dress up almost every day because, duh, you're a fashion blogger... Stay tuned for an application that will be posted here and on our Facebook page sometime this Thursday, September 18th! 

*the "rebellious trust fund baby" line was coined by Varshini Satish, dear friend and queen of the hipsters on the West Coast tbh
