Virtual Shop: Back to School Goodies

The beginning of September was always bittersweet for me. It's that feeling of dread as you realize summer has dwindled away, but the good news is it meant back to school shopping! At a young age I was already a sucker for shopping. Fall meant fancy new "school shoes", crisp new jeans and fun new pencils. I'm a sucker for new pencils.

There was always something exciting about picking out your first day of school outfit and laying out all your new school supplies, all ready for a fresh new year. The kiddos around here are back at school today and I couldn't resist a little virtual shop for some grown up goodies...

  2. I so remember those days as well. Makes me wish I was heading back to school a little [...and only a little]. But only if I had those cool neon pencils.

    Also, you must tell me how you like those wedges! Might have to get me a pair as well!

    1. I know, I sorta miss going back to school too.

      I'll let you know how I like the wedges. I actually already tried them on already but found them cheaper online, they have them at red ribbon if you wanna check them out!

    1. I bet it's bittersweet, school is definitely a love/hate relationship.

  9. I didn't know Toms was making desert boots. I am SO on it. My 11-year-old just got her first pair of Toms and is addicted. Just wait until Alice is old enough to sport her own pair:)
