So I know we are still in mid-August, (it is September now -.-) and I don’t want to dampen the moods, but we all got to admit. We are all feeling the hot, sticky, air slowly turning into slightly cooler air at least where I live which is Vancouver, Canada which is located on the west coast of North America. I swear, I can “smell” the fall air, the back-to-school air.
I still remember when it was back to school time, especially if you are transitioning into a new school year such as elementary student becoming a middle schooler or a middle schooler becoming a high schooler, and so on.
When it was back to school, we will always go shopping to purchase new school supplies, whether we had them from previous years, it didn’t matter. I was specifically excited about getting new clothes for back to school especially figuring out what to wear on the first day! That was when you wear your best-est clothing, to exude and to show off your worthiness (?) and coolness factor to others. The first impression always counts, especially if you are entering into a new school grade system.
From my recent haul from Forever21 Canada online [not sponsored], I realized all the items I got were T shirts that were on sale. I am trying to be mindful of what I purchase nowadays so I thought why not do a fashion haul post and back to school post altogether incorporating with what I already have in my closet?
I also visited the Vancouver Mural Festival to check out the art and it was amazing! I did not attend on an actual day which was June 24th, but about a week after. It was great because it wasn’t busy and I did not have to bump into crowds, and I had the time to take pictures leisurely without having to line up.
Here is how I transition my summer sale T shirts into Fall looks.
F21 Description: A knit tee featuring short sleeves, round neckline, and a “World Tour 1991 USA Europe Asia Australia Canada” graphic on the front.
First of all, this T shirt is wayyyy too short for me so I will wear a tank top underneath so my midriff is not bare. I will pair this t shirt with any pair of jeans and sneakers and I will be good to go!
For those of you who want to wear this shirt solo, it will look good with high rise jeans to offset the midriff t shirt. If not, go wiiiild!
Style Point: Handkerchief instead of a regular scarf for those of you who want to have extra oomph.

F21 Description: A knit tee featuring an allover camo print, short sleeves, and a crew neck.
I always like a good camo print but I try to be mindful of not going overboard. For example, I don’t want to be mistaken to be in an actual army because I did not go through hard training that soldiers go through.
I want to have a casual with a bit of tough look to my style. This is a no brainer where I will wear any colored jeans with this look but it will especially go well with anything black. Black jeans, black jacket, black moto jacket, black anything.
Style Point: T shirt tucked in front of jeans
This is not anything new, but I’ve recently noticed people tucking their T shirts into their jeans for a more polished look. It makes them look slimmer and look neater when tucked.
If you tuck them half side, it sort of looks fashiony (?) as well.
F21 Description: A knit tee with a crew neck, short sleeves, and a “Turn Up The Music Turn Down The Drama” graphic on the front.
I like T shirts that have catchphrases on them especially when I agree with what it says. I am still loving my music loud (at certain times) so this message does pertain to me.
Style point: I have been seeing sock heeled boots that are gaining popularity and apparently it will be one of the “it” boots! Especially the red color.

I feel like 80’s punk style is coming in strong for upcoming seasons. I will personally not wear them because of my feet issues, and cannot really wear heels for a long period of time.
I will probably go with my all time favorite beat up clunky boots ❤
F21 Description: A cotton tee featuring a “Peachy” and a happy face with heart eyes graphic on front, distressed design, short cuff sleeves, and a round neckline.
I like distressed t-shirts to a point. When they are distressed, I think to myself, what look am I trying to portray here? Is it because it’s trendy? Is this really hipster? Is this too shabby? Do I want mosquitos coming through the holes and suck my blood?
I think this t-shirt has just enough distressed look without going overboard.
Style Point: I hear men’s’ style inspired blazer is going to be huge for Fall season, especially the plaid design.
Okay, this picture clearly look trendy and modern but I just liked this picture 😉
The plaid style of blazer which you will probably see a lot of them in Fall fashion blogs or magazines and they might look like it would be worn by old men wearing their blazers that are from their hay days and smoking cigars and playing their favorite games which is kind of awesome in its own way 😉
I don’t have many places to wear those kinds of plaid blazers, so I will probably stick to my leather jackets or flannel shirts! Fall is the perfect weather to wear this outerwear because of the mild weather. Well, at least it is like that in Vancouver, Canada.
