As summer slowly starts to come to an end, I can’t help but think of the fall. And while I’m still sporting shorts and sandals, I’m happy that back-to-school shopping season has finally arrived.
This particular time of year always has me daydreaming of new beginnings, freshly sharpened pencils, and notebooks filled with hopeful aspirations and bright ideas. I know we haven’t quite entered pumpkin spice territory yet, but there’s still a palpable change in the air. Yes, the start school year signifies the start of something special.
No? Those school days are long behind you, you say? Sigh, same here. Though I’m not technically going back to school this September, I love a good excuse to spruce up my wardrobe. In the spirit of shopping, let’s play pretend.

What am I coveting this back-to-school season? Pleated skirts that remind me of the good old days, cardigans with preppy flair, chic and practical back packs, as well as shinier, and cooler takes on old school classics.
