It's late August and you know what that means.... Back to School. I hated this time of the year (ugh school), but I definitely loved back to school shopping. It makes going back to school slightly more exciting. I love all the new stuff that comes out. When I shop for back to school wardrobe, my mind immediately goes to Fall transitional pieces. 

This time of year (especially in the Midwest) the temperatures can fluctuate. The Summer's heat may extend its stay or Fall may have an early visit. So I like to shop for items that can be worn both in summer and fall weather. All these pieces can easily be layered on or off. For instance, on a warmer day, you can wear the Paris Mon Amour tee with distressed shorts and if the temperature drops you can layer the tee with a cargo jacket and possibly swap out the distressed shorts with distressed jeans.

When I was in school, a high quality and roomy tote bag was key. I wanted a bag that could carry all my school stuff plus more but still look chic. A tote bag is not only classic and chic, it has the capacity to fit in school supplies and other essentials (i.e. lip balm, compact mirror, etc). I have this reversible tote bag and it is the best purchase I have ever made. Not only is it durable for a $48 bag and (very) spacious, but I love the reversible feature. It is like getting a two for one special! I own the pink/taupe combo. Now I have my eye on the cognac/aqua one!

  9. I like the school girl look. Of course when it is suited. I can't go to work school girl like. So it's mostly for some evenings and for the weekend. But I like it, it makes me feel a teenager again.
