Trending Tuesday - Back to School

Since I am a grown up now, I don't go back to school. But just because I don't, doesn't mean that's going to stop me from going back to school shopping! 

I remember loving school shopping as a kid - from everything about supplies to clothes and backpacks. And as much as I love summer and am in no way ready for winter, fall does sound kind of appealing! If I were going back to school, or even if I wasn't and I could get my husband to approve all of these purchases (yeah right!), here's what I would consider my essentials that are trending right now!

Back to School Trends


In the fall, I am obsessed with boots. I am loving the two toned ones that I am starting to see pop up everywhere. Not to mention the little criss cross. How adorable are these?! You can find these at The Buckle via this link! These boots are perfect for my version of "back to school"!

Lunch Box Trends

Lunch Boxes. 

You can't tell me that this isn't the cutest little lunch box you've ever seen! I love how unique it is, and it's actually really nice that it's hard sided - no smashed lunches!! If you haven't ever looked at ModCloth's lunch boxes, you need to view them here! They are great for back to school (or just because) to ensure no one has a lunch box like yours!

School Trends - Flannel


Yes - I totally purchased this top. If you saw my post yesterday (here) you got a glimpse of it. It's thinner than normal flannel and will be perfect for fall, even with a scarf. You can find this one, and several others, at Aeropostale!

Back to School Trends - Bags


Can I have one of each of their totes please?! I on obsessed with Gigi bags, wallets, clutches, you name it. And what better than a neutral one for fall. I know I could easily fill this up - this may have to make it onto my birthday list in a few months! I think you probably know where to find this one :) but in case you don't, click here to be obsessed!

Back to School Stationary

You can't go back to school - or pretend to - without an adorable notebook! Swoozie's has a ton of options, but right now anything with gold accents sticks out to me! Their agendas are really cute too; I am loving the Kate Spade ones! Go to Swoozie's to get this one!

Scarf Trends


I think this one is a no brainer. Scarves are a absolute must for fall. With as many great options that there are everywhere, it's so hard to pick just one! My personal favorites are the infinity scarves. The ones that wrap around always seem to get in my way, and I love wearing long necklaces with the infinity ones! This one is from Charming Charlie!
