While I still have a few years before my kids are officially in school, lately I’ve been trying to get Augustine into the back to school spirit. I picked up a few educational workbooks for him earlier in the summer and it turns out he loves learning! No real surprise because that boy has always been extra curious! He also loves having a backpack because he can put his favorite books and boys inside. And I have to say he is so darn cute when he is using it. Keep reading for some of my favorite back to school deals that you’re totally going to want for you or your kiddos!
Last weekend I went to the mall to do some back to school/back to life shopping! Do any of you love to shop for fall? It probably goes back to the days of shopping for back to school but it was always something to look forward to when summer was coming to an end. I thought I’d take you along on my dressing room diaries and break down all the things I tried on, what I loved, what I hated, and what I bought.
Whether you’re going back to school, back to work, or just back to life from a restful summer, these items above are some of my favorites. Every year mid-August I start to get those end of summer blues. I might not be going back to school, but I am sad to see summer go, along with beach days, outdoor dinner parties, movies under the stars, and warm-weather travel. Life just seems to be a lot more simple during the summertime. One thing that has always seemed to cheer me up was back to school shopping! A new pair of shoes, un-cracked notebooks, and a first day outfit made it almost worthwhile. Now, I still feel like I need a little pick-me-up, so I found some items that would be perfect for starting back to your regular routine.
A new WATCH is a must-have so you can stay on schedule. No more summer Fridays over here…unfortunately!
A TOTE BAG for your laptop and books is crucial and I love this fun berry color. It beats navy and black by a long shot, don’t you think?
Getting back to AC office temperatures doesn’t have to be so bad when you have a pretty little SCARF. It’s also light enough to wear with your late summer outfits. Think t-shirt, jeans and a wide-brim hat!
LOAFERS are super cute to wear in fall, and why not try them in this fun metallic silver color? I love how fun they would make any outfit stand out!
You can’t go wrong with a CLASSIC BUTTON-UP SHIRT! It will totally work hard for you and your wardrobe. Read: endless combinations!
Every year in the late summer I go for my annual eye exam. Here’s to hoping I can get these TORTOISE EYEGLASSES next! The two-tone color makes them different than all my other tortoise glasses. I like what I like!
And for the times between class, or between meetings, take a break with these awesome WHITE AND ROSE GOLD HEADPHONES. I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts lately and love the idea of bringing these along with me. Putting my phone on Speaker isn’t always the most well-received.
And who would I be without making any excuse for a new LIPSTICK? This berry color is gorgeous and will go perfectly with all your fall outfits!
Do you like shopping for back to school? I’d love to hear what you’re on the lookout for!
