If I Was Back-to-School Shopping…

Back-to-School Wish List

1: JustFab Martin Tote Bag ($40) | 2: Sole Society Addison Ankle Booties ($70) | 3: Kate Spade Day Planner | 4: Notebooks by Wild & Wolf | 5: Furbish Studio Leather iPad Case ($56) |6: Nixon Small Kinsington Watch ($175)

File back-to-school shopping under “things most young’uns don’t appreciate until they’re gone.” Then add metabolism, nap time, and limitless energy, and try not to cry at the fact you just celebrated your 10-year high school reunion over the weekend and found two more gray eyebrow hairs.

Those annual summer’s end shopping trips are one of the rites of kid-hood I miss most as a grownup. Even though it’s been several years since I’ve graced the halls of an institute of learning, August still feels like a fresh beginning!

  2. I loved back to school shopping when I was younger! I still to this day buy cute notebooks and agendas every August.

    1. Guilty.

      I just cannot resist a cute notebook, and can’t live without an agenda. I have a smartphone and an iPad, but if I don’t physically write an appointment down I forget it.

      1. I’m exactly the same. If I don’t write things down in my agenda I completely forget about them.

  3. I just bought a planner just like the one you have here to bring with me abroad (I am studying abroad in Italy). Even though I am studying abroad I am NOT about to miss out on back to school shopping :P

  4. Just bought some ankle boots just like that with fringe and I’m obsessed! I keep trying to save them for fall but I just can’t help wearing them out already, even if it’s super hot here!

    1. Haha, I don’t blame you! I’m in no hurry to see summer end, but every morning I’m tempted to pull out a pair of boots. Then I remember that it’s 95 degrees.

      Just think of how much you’ll e able to wear them in a few short months!

  17. That tote back seriously does not look like it should only be $40. I love JustFab and ShoeDazzle. Seriously awesome stuff to be had at both places.

  19. Working at a college I’ve been able to convince myself that I can also back-to-school shop before the start of the fall semester. Grey ankle booties are on my must have list for the fall! I’ve been stalking a few pairs by Dolce Vita, TOMS, and Sperry…
