Back to School blogThe arrival of August means not only that the long days of sunshine and beaching are dwindling (sob). It also means for some of you that it’s time to go back to school! For me in particular, this fall will be my final first day of school before I graduate in the spring, which is exciting and mental breakdown-inducing all at the same time. Whether you are preparing for high school or college, it’s time to stop the denial and begin preparing to make school as enjoyable and bearable as possible.

Luckily, back to school means back to school shopping, which is great because it lets you feel entitled to shopping for things regardless of if they are advantageous for school (I need these spike heels because they would be totally great and practical for class.) Also first day of class outfits are very important to plan for – I would be lying if I said I wasn’t already thinking about what I’m going to wear (come on, it’s my last first day of class, let me have this!)

Another thing to consider before you go back to school is what you’re going to carry your stuff around. Fortunately, we recently just got an inundation of products from one of our favorite backpack, bag and travel good company, Herschel Supply. These bags are super great looking and very legitimate when if comes to carrying all you need. Also, they come in a variety of colors and prints so picking a product that you love is very individual.
