Back To Cool

Remeber back to school shopping with your mom? You would load up on erasers, notebooks and pencils while your mom bought piles of fresh new corduroys and sweaters that it was way warm to wear until October. Your mom might not be springing for your new fall wardrobe anymore, and you likely don’t have any use for a three-ring binder, but who says you can’t recreate back to school shopping as an adult? This time around, instead of lined paper and erasers you can splurge on some new office supplies that will make sitting at a desk a bit more bearable- and attractive. And, instead of mom’s stack of mix-and-match cold weather staples, you can indulge in some new pieces that will help you usher in the cooler weather stylishly. Back to school has now become back to cool, and here are the cool new finds to help get you started. Fall is officially in session.
