Best Dressed For Homecoming Week

Hey, everyone! If you live anywhere remotely close to the South, you know it's football season.  That also means it's Homecoming Season!
Most high schools have an entire week of dressing up before the Homecoming game. Not all high schools have the same types of themes, but if yours does, I hope I can give you some ideas!
*Disclaimer:  I am not the most "outgoing" person, so my outfits aren't exactly wild and crazy.  In fact, I can usually pass for wearing normal clothes on dress-up days at school. Here's an example: last week's theme day was "Greek Day" and while everyone else was dressed in togas made from bed sheets, I came to school wearing leggings, Chacos, and a t-shirt that said "Sparta" on it.  In my opinion, that still counts, although some would disagree.  For those of you who are outgoing enough to go all out on theme days, I applaud you.  For those of you like me, well, I understand your pain.
I don't want to look like an idiot if I'm the only one dressed up, but I don't want to be the only person NOT dressed up, either!

1.  Dress up like your favorite movie/ TV character day
Honestly, this one stumped me, because most of my favorite movies are oldies and I'm pretty sure I couldn't pull off Audrey's dress from "Breakfast at Tiffany's."  I found a nice solution that most teens of today would understand, and it's SUPER easy!  Anyone familiar with this scene?

Yes, the infamous "On Wednesdays we wear pink" scene.  This leads me to my solution: dress up like Cady on Wednesday!  I say Cady because her outfit is definitely the simplest, but if you're down for dressing like Regina, go for it!

You can barely tell the difference, right?  All you need is a pink t-shirt, jeans, and some casual slip-ons, and you're good to go!  I would also get some other people to do this sort of thing with you to make the theme even better.

2.  Rock Star Day
I'm not exactly a rocker chick.  I will not be doing Kiss makeup, spike collars, or shredded shirts, but I think my alternative could pass for semi-rocker, right?

For this look, I'd try and find the most rocker-ish t-shirt you have (or just a plain black shirt always works), jeans, and some cool shoes (I went with these Converse).  Plus, this is the one day you can fish out all that jewelry you thought was cool in third grade (you know you want this gummy bear bracelet)!

3.  Destination Day
My school gave us a few different options for this day like African safari, 'Merican road trip, etc.
The one that really caught my eye was "Trip to the Tropics."  If you didn't know, Hawaii is my forever home (even though I've only been there once), and so I sort of jumped at the chance to bring out all the cool souvenir stuff we got last summer.

Honestly, the other reason I wanted to do this sort of look was because I've been dying to have an excuse to wear my Lilly Pulitzer sweater (similar).  Have fun with this look! You could even go get a lei and a grass skirt!  If you want to do something a little less literal, wear a bright or tropical top, blue or white jeans (shorts if they're allowed), and some simple sandals (I think Jack Rogers would look nice), and voila'!  You're an instant Hawaiian (sort of)!

I hope this gave you a few ideas for your own theme/ dress-up days (at least you'll get an A+ for effort)!  Comment what you're wearing for Homecoming Season!
