Back to School Favorites + Tips

6:42:00 AM

Today, I am sharing some of my favorites for back to school. Whether you are going back to school or work I think this these favorites and tips will help you get back on track for the fall. Back to school was always my favorite time of the year. Gathering all my school supplies and buying new clothes for the upcoming year was what I looked forward to most. Some of my favorite places to find new items for the school season is Shein for more trendy pieces and Nordstrom for closet staples.


1. Pick neutrals that will carry your wardrobe through the year. For example, this cardigan is a great option for now because the classroom tends to be colder, and for later to layer over a warmer sweater.

2. Start the new year with a brand new planner. A planner always helps me get through my blogging work and also helped when I was in school. I purchased a new one every year and it always feels so good to start fresh. This one from Erin Condren is a favorite and I know some of my teacher friends really love it too.

3. Don't stress -- I know sometimes school can be a difficult time. Not everyone has a great experience, but don't stress. Growing up I didn't love school, but looking back on it now I have a better outlook. Having a positive attitude and not letting the little things bother me helped the most when getting through those difficult times.

4. Pick a first day outfit that makes you feel confident. A good outfit for the first day of school can totally help if you are feeling nervous. Try to find something that makes you feel good and you feel comfortable wearing.

Any tips or favorites that I missed? Let me know below.
