Can you believe that August is almost over?? Where has the summer gone? This time for the past 6 years I still get the feeling that I am going back-to-school and that I need to go out and get some new school supplies and clothes. I am not sure when the feeling of going to school goes away, but that is why I wanted to do a “back-to-school” inspired post!
If today was going to be my first day of school, I would probably wear something similar to this, a mix of summer and fall. Fall has always been my favorite season so when I was in school I was always ready to start dressing for the fall. A bright sweater and shorts is a great option to mix the two seasons, and if you are going back-to-school, the a/c is probably blasting inside so this is a great way to stay warm. 🙂
I always ask other 20-somethings if they still get the feeling of going back-to-school, and I typically get the answer of yes, I am curious of when this feeling goes away. Every August now that I am no longer a student I like to act as I am going back-to-school, as in updated my clothes and organizing my closet. Even though it will probably be warm for the next month or so I am read to start introducing my fall wardrobe.
Mixing items like sweaters and shorts or a blazer and a summer dress are great ways to maximize both your summer and fall wardrobe. Most stores have the new fall collection out and it is so hard to buy them and not start wearing them yet, so this is my way of satisfying my want of dressing for fall, but also still be practical for the weather.
Also depending on how long you have been at your current job, right now is also a great time to update your supplies. To be honest, this was my favorite shopping as a kid, I always wanted matching and “fashion forward” school supplies. I really have not changed much because I love buying these items for my desk at work. Every job that I have had supplies me with some supplies but they are lame so I love going to Target to get the latest and greatest office supplies, and since it is back-to-school time, right now is the perfect time to stock up.
