Early Back to School looks take their que from late summer destinations…like Camp!   We love the classic with a twist style created when you meld functional “great outdoors” looks with fashion twists perfect for high school and college campuses. Varsity stripes and functional fabrics like denim and khaki combine to create the ideal “Campus Style”!

When taking trips to the lake we like to keep it casual and comfy. Boyfriend jeans are our staple wardrobe piece when trying to be casually in-style. Pair with blouses, tanks, or tees and you’re ready for the day or night ahead!

Our last back to school post featuring our SCOUT interns. Today, we’re featuring Gussie Johns who is a rising sophomore at the University of Southern California studying Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurial Business. She plays lacrosse at USC and loves to explore downtown LA and the nearby beaches. Gussie’s style is timeless, tomboy with an edge…blending her athletic life with her love for denim and SHOES! She has a life on two coasts and her wardrobe reflects a bi-coastal flexibility. She has an entrepreneurial spirit and keen sense of personal style.

We love a fun pop of color via this Toy Watch. Duffy
Gussie’s favorite SCOUT bags come from the canvas collection. The Duffy is the perfect travel companion and can double as a gym bag.


The Scoutrigger is great because it’s so versitile and can be used for a day trip, weekend trip, or just a trip around town.

We’re featuring our 3rd of 4 summer interns at SCOUT. Today we’re focusing on Katherine’s style, a rising senior at Georgetown University who is studying business. We love that Katherine lives right around the corner from our headquarters! Her style is classic with a twist…she loves fashion but appreciates looks that last mixed with fun, on trend pieces that keep her look refreshed! Katherine hopes to pursue a career in fashion/retail and enjoys wearing easy pieces that are both feminine and fun.

Back to School: Intern Edition featuring Annie Gray Dixon July 20, 2015

We decided to take a bit of a different approach to a “back to school post” this week. With four interns who all attend different schools, we thought we would share a little insight into their lives and of course their personal style.
Annie Gray, a native of Edenton, NC will be a rising junior at the University of North Carolina of Chapel Hill. She is SCOUT’s editorial intern this summer and is loving working for SCOUT! Her look channels Jackie O; it’s classic with a feminine twist. Boyfriend crisp white shirts with skinny jeans and flats is her “go to” uniform. Dashes of color add punctuation to her wardrobe for day into special occasion.

“This silk Tibi cami is so classic but still fun, which is why I love it” -Annie Gray

Screen Shot 2015-07-19 at 7.16.36 PM

This Zara Sailor’s Jacket is fun with a little bit of spunk and it goes perfectly with the Tibi cami above.


For a special occasion, Annie Gray loves to keep it simple but still show a pop of color and not go for your average little black dress. We love her choice of this hot pink Shoshanna dress.

go to outfit

 Annie Gray’s “go to outfit” is a white top, dark skinnies, and chic ballet flats.
