Back to School Blues

There are things that I will forever miss about back to school shopping that I can't enjoy as a college grad. Arguing with my mom about what carefully crisscrossed red skirt was too short or spreading out everything from our shopping trips on the hotel room bed to admire my choices. The smell of new drawing erasers and the feel of the ever so classic black and white composition pad to scribble your daydreams in - oh wait, that was grade school...
Luckily I can still enjoy breaking in new winter boots, picking out the latest circle scarf and perusing Opening Ceremony and Topshop for the coolest trends of this season to inspire me.
