the want list: back to school



jeffery campbell rizzler in navajo (available here), tory burch reva flat (available here), h&m blazer (similar style here), NARS polish in arabesque (available here), topshop python necklace (available here), h&m dress (similar style here), marc by marc jacobs oversized aviators (available here), tory burch reversible belt, hunter regent carlyle rain boot (available here), missoni zigzag-pattered wool blend scarf (available here), cheap monday jeans (available here), smith's rosebud salve (available here)


Through the years, I've learned that not much good comes out of dreading school - so I've (more recently) decided to look at the bright side - the beginning of a new school year entails a shopping trip for some new items to spruce up both my mood and my wardrobe!

I've picked a few pieces that are both back to school basics and some that I believe are necessary for transforming any outfit. Whether it be a fun backpack, a simple pair of flats to be worn over and over again, a blazer, a statement necklace or scarf to add something new to an old ensemble, this is my list of what to buy! Of course, for me, a fall staple is a long-sleeved mini dress-perfect to be worn over some tights, or in the cooler days, some leggings! The Rosebud Salve was on my want list because it the best moisturizer, hands down, and I believe one should never leave their house without a lip moisturizer!

Also added to the list was the NARS nail polish in Arabesque. As a back to school ritual, every year I go with my Mommy to the nail salon and get a fun, cheerful color to brighten up the dreadful mood that school puts me in - this color is so pretty and feminine, I love it!

Hope everyone has a lovely transition into fall - school starts tomorrow for me!
