Heading back to school? It can be a bittersweet feeling returning to campus. The feeling I would get the last few weeks of my summer was always distinct. Year after year. It would be a mix of dread and excitement. I remember I had a love/hate relationship with school. I kind of hated it because I knew I had to do it. On top of that, I often would anticipate the workload for the year and get super overwhelmed as a result of that mindset. But at the same time I loved school because I knew it was turning me into a better person. And I loved the preparation part. Receiving my schedule, buying planners, notebooks, textbooks, pens etc. I loved the process of getting ready for a new semester ahead.
I also loved school for the friends, for the competitiveness, for the independence, and for the valuable information I received from all my classes. There was always something I was able to take away from a class no matter how irrelevant it felt in the beginning. Most of all, I loved school because every year "back to school week" gave me the excuse to go shopping. Bad, Danielle!
Sorry but not sorry. Shopping retail or online is my therapy. There is truly nothing else like it, and really nothing else that can cure my blues on the same level that shopping can. Who doesn't love receiving a package in the mail with their name on it? Next in line is venting with the bestie. So shopping it is.
With that being said, I pulled some pieces from my closet to inspire your next shopping spree. Go ahead, you can justify that... You have school. You work hard. Get it, girl! Start with a perfect back to school outfit; a look that has a touch of fall edge, mixed with comfort and practicality. When you look good, you'll feel good. Be sure to scroll to the end of the post to shop the look!
