Takin' notes: I'm pretty partial to my plain jane Composition notebooks (covers all decorated, of course), one per subject, no exceptions. But I could definitely consider breaking my tradition for these guys, especially those last two! 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
Bags: While I'm a complete sucker for the massive colorblocked totes Gap has right now (the ones in store have some amaaazing color variety), I think these totes and backpacks are the perfect school's-in-session
accessory necessity. 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
First day fancy: Of course you wanna look your best on the first day. Everyone does. And then by mid-semester there are magically more parking spots because half your class has dropped and the remaining few are showing up in sweatpants. At least that's been my experience. SIDENOTE: I've never worn anything that could possibly resemble pjs to class and I'm proud of that. But anyway. I love the simplicity of the above dresses and romper...and I'm DYING over this extreme neckwear situation. It might be time to get my needles out... 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
Practicalities: It gets cold in those classrooms. It does. And I'm that girl who still wears a heavy-duty jacket indoors even when it's 100 degrees outside. I mean. It is what it is. THAT SAID, I'm lovin' this comfy hooded cotton alternative, and the dapper vintage Dior coat...I've got fall on the brain!
Organization 101: I'm a self-proclaimed creature of habit, almost to a fault. Like my notebooks, I'm reallyreally I mean REALLY picky about the planner and pens I use (been using the same ones for the past few years). Silly, I know. But I'm really diggin' these fun organizational 'extras' that could be part of the back to school bonanza. (I could totally use that zen desk organizer in my office too. AHH!) 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
