Does he walk around all day at school with his feet inside your shoes?

As the summer winds down we start to think of Autumn, and for some school.  Not that this is something I consciously think about, although with this post I realized I have not been school shopping in ten years.  And can I just say, it is crazy to believe that I started my senior year of high school in 2006.

I am however, all about A/W fashion, new notebooks, and big bags to hold it all.  Over the next few weeks I am going to share my top picks to make the 2016-2017 school year the best year yet, whether your in high school or college.

I will start this off with stationary.  When I was a student I was all about composition books, they are classic, easy and inexpensive.  Now they come in more patterns and colours than ever.  And any 90s girl remembers Lisa Frank stationary.  From trapper keepers to folders, pencil cases, and stickers, there was a character for everyone, and man, were they cute!  I also almost exclusively write in pen, and have since about the sixth of seventh grade.  I am a black ink gal, and I always have been.  I feel it’s easier for filling out forms, and the like.

  1. Notebooks – Here and Here
  2. Stickies – Here
  3. Pens – Here and Here
  4. Pencils – Here You know for those standardized tests and when teachers are really particular, you know in the not treating you as a person kind of way…
  5. Binders – Here
  6. Bags – Here and Here As a kid I was more into the messenger bag scene, but these bags are really adorable.  And now that I think about it, way more practical.

Writing the post makes my feel incredibly old.  Even more, because at the bank I open a lot of accounts for kids who never had bank accounts before.  And they are so young, it makes me think about my high school days.  And how even 14-15 years ago it was very different for me than it is for kids now.  Stay tuned for some A/W fashions and a more in depth look at bag options!  And on that note, it’s time to end!

All for now,
