#BloggersBTS Linkup: Favorite Back-to-School Looks on TV

back to school fashion

August is here, and summer is slowly coming to an end. That means it’s time to start making those back-to-school shopping lists!

In addition to buying new school supplies, you might have grown out of your clothing from the last school year, or maybe you just want to add a few new pieces to your wardrobe. Regardless, here are a few outfits I love from my favorite high school and college-aged characters on TV to help you decide what to wear for your first day back!

BTS Linkup Spencer

Spencer Hastings loves to wear dark colored sophisticated pieces. In this scene from Pretty Little Liars, she’s wearing a shirt dress with leggings, paired with a belt and boots (footwear not pictured). This look is perfect for those days when you don’t feel like wearing jeans!

Leggings: Rue21, $9.99

BTS Linkup Tamara

Awkward.‘s Tamara is always bright and bubbly. Just because the summer is over, it doesn’t mean you have to shift to a darker colored wardrobe. Turn heads with bold colored belts and skirts!

Skirt: Chic Wish, $39.02

BTS Linkup Haley

So you don’t want to give up that spaghetti strap floral top just yet. Good news: you don’t have to! Haley Dunphy from Modern Family makes a summer piece transition into fall with a flyaway sweater and a fedora. Add a cute triangle necklace and you’re good to go!

Round two of the Pretty Little Campaign is upon us! It’s time to get your final votes in for the #ChArlesIsA shareable graphics created by none other than the amazingly talented Pretty Little Liars fanbase.

I will admit that I enjoyed last week’s season six premiere fan art more than this week’s graphics. There’s much less variety with this round’s #ChArlesIsA theme, which could be the reason why I haven’t been all that excited about the fan art currently circulating on PrettyLittleCampaign.com.

However, that does not mean that I didn’t find any #ChArlesIsA shareable graphics I’d like to see make the cut. Here are five of my top picks, and make sure to vote for your personal favorites by the end of today, April 14th!

A Glimpse into ‘Ravenswood’

In last night’s Pretty Little Liars episode titled “Under the Gun,” viewers get a sneak peek at Ravenswood, the town where the spinoff series of the same name is to take place.

ravenswood

Ravenswood is set to air this October on ABC Family, and boy does it look creepy.

As soon as Spencer Hastings and Toby Cavanaugh (Troian Bellisario and Keegan Allen) enter the fictional town in Pennsylvania, one notices the colors are a bit off.

And not in a good way.

The color is drained from literally everything in the town. The asphalt on the streets of Ravenswood are not black. No, no. They’re gray.

And the leaves on the trees and the bushes? Not green. Black.

Spencer takes one look around and notices that there are no street signs. Huh.

Asking for directions? Well good luck with that, because there’s a 99.9% chance that the woman who just walked passed you with a child on each hand will pretend she didn’t hear you.

Not exactly the kind of town I’d like to be stuck in.

Then there’s that weird music that lures everyone to the angel statue in the graveyard at noon, almost like a sinister afternoon lullaby.

It doesn’t help that all the citizens of Ravenswood walk like zombies.

To top it off, there are ravens. Groups of ravens. But they look like crows. Do you know what they call a group of crows? A murder. Groups of ravens can be either a constable, a conspiracy, or unkindness.

I suspect this group is all three: an investigator of crime, an evil plan, and some sort of wicked scheme.

One of the ravens/crows hit the windshield of Spencer’s car as she was trying leave Ravenswood to follow Shana. It’s chest was ripped open, leaving behind a splatter of dark red blood.

If that’s what Ravenswood is going to look like all season, then I’m preparing myself for the nightmares.

Because I don’t do well with horror.

I don’t know about the rest of you Pretty Little Liars fans, but Ravenswood isn’t exactly my cup of tea.

However, I might only watch it for Caleb Rivers.

The Couples On “Pretty Little Liars”

PrettyLittleLiarsIntertitle

If you happen to be a Pretty Little Liars fan, you probably wish the couples on the show were real. The way the men treat their women (and in Emily’s case the women treat her) is something hard to come by in the real world. Nevertheless, fans crave the on screen action from Ezria, Haleb, Spoby, and Emaya.

Whenever there’s tension between the couples on the show, tweets fly from left and right about how sad we’ll all be if [fill in the blank] split. Fans have grown to love the on screen romance and want to see the couples make it through. Let’s take a closer look at each of the PLL couples and what makes them special.

Ezria (Ezra Fitz and Aria Montgomery):

Ezra and Aria’s relationship is by far the most risky of them all. Ezra and Aria met before they knew that he would be teaching at Rosewood High, where the girls attend school. This relationship is filled with the thrills of sneaking around, making it all the more interesting.
Ezra quits his job at Rosewood High due to a student’s treat to expose the relationship to the authorities. He soon lands a job at Hollis as a college professor and is coincidentally reunited with an ex, Jackie, who also threatens to expose the couple. Aria’s parents find out about the two, and her father, Byron, is furious. Byron tries to promote Ezra to a school out of state so that he would be away from his daughter, but fails to convince him that he should leave. When Ezra’s mom finally meets Aria, she tries to bribe her with money to break up with her son. Ezra becomes livid, because a similar incident occurred with his ex in high school. At the time Aria doesn’t know, but Ezra had gotten a girl pregnant as a teen and his mom gave her money to shut up about it and have an abortion.
Wesley, Ezra’s younger brother, drops in during season three with a skeleton from Ezra’s closet—a son he never knew about. Apparently Maggie, the girl he got pregnant, never had the abortion. Ezra learns about his seven year old son from Spencer because of a prank from “A”. He decides to go visit his ex Maggie and her son, leaving Aria to wonder if things will ever be the sane when he returns.

Haleb (Hanna Marin and Caleb Rivers):

Hanna’s boyfriend Caleb is a former foster child. He’s a computer wiz who has come in handy as the girls run into technological obstacles while investigating “A”. Caleb begins living in Hanna’s basement, and one morning her mom almost discovers him. Hanna quickly jumped into the shower with Caleb in order to keep his basement residence a secret.  Calling those 3 minutes an awkward moment would be an understatement.
Caleb loses Hanna’s trust in season one and he leaves Rosewood, causing Hanna to believe that he never really cared for her. Before leaving though, he leaves a note with Hanna’s friend (now frenemy) Mona. Hanna never gets the note.
When Caleb returns he does everything to try to win her back. Hanna finally gives in, and it is now in his best interest to protect her from Mona, who has revealed her involvement with the “A” team.

Spoby (Spencer Hastings and Toby Cavanaugh):

In the beginning, none of us thought that anything would ever happen between creepy Toby and level headed Spencer. Boy were we wrong! Toby has become one of the sexier men of the cast, along with heartthrobs Ezra and Caleb.
The relationship between Toby and Spencer was not always smooth. Spencer once disapproved of Toby’s friendship with Emily, but as she saw him being taunted in the streets for Alison’s murder, she began to sympathize. Toby was proven guilty, and a romance formed between the two.
Sadly, Toby was reavealed as season three’s betrAyer. As part of the “A” team, he works closely with Mona, who is also part of the team. Spencer finds out about his involvement on the night of their anniversary, leaving her devastatingly heartbroken.
Spencer hires a private investigator to follow him around and find out what door the key she found labeled “A” opens. The private investigator gives her the address and she tells him that she hopes to find the things she and Toby always talked about behind the door. If she doesn’t, the investigator recommends that she move on.

Emaya (Emily Fields and Maya Saint Germaine):

The short lived relationship of Emily and Maya was by far one of the most tragic. On top of the fact that Emily was discriminated against for being lesbian, which caused people to treat her differently, Maya was killed in season 2. Maya was Emily’s first girlfriend and first love. She had a tendency to lead straight guys on, and that bothered Lyndon James, a guy that showed interest in Maya. He begins to stalk her, driving her decision to run away to San Francisco with friends. Lyndon follows her and kills her, causing Emily to fall into a deep depression.
Paige comes along and tries to be everything Emily ever saw in Maya. Unfortunately, Lyndon wants revenge from Emily. He wants to make her feel what its like to lose someone you care about. Therefore he tries to kill Paige, but Emily ends up shooting him with his own gun. Caleb gets mixed up in this mess as well, requiring surgery for a bullet wound. Of course, Emily is now traumatized.

Let’s see how her relationship with Paige turns out.

We love the PLL couples, and hope that they can make it through any obstacle that “A” puts in their way.
