Better Than Usual


Though I have long passed the age where it is requisite to buy a new backpack and pencil set, it's still fun to go "back to school" shopping. As of this week, I am the proud owner of Blundstone boots, which I am planning on wearing every single day until they fall apart (which is apparently never).

Always the sucker for nerdy organizational tools, I found these colourful post-it notes at the dollar store! Soon these textbooks will be covered in them. Luckily these textbooks actually seem remotely interesting, though their price was appalling as per usual.

Just trying to enjoy this whose "university" thing before its all over...

I so love back to school time too, and though I haven't been to school in a long time, I still buy fresh new notebooks and pilot pens every September.

I have an obsession with stationary! When everything is shiny and new and organized. And notebooks. Don't even get me started on notebooks. I can never get enough. Which dollar store was it that you got the post-its? And you look very cute!

I'm in love with that high waisted yellow pants! And the combination yellow/pink. You got the right shades going on there!

Having graduated this summer I'm all sad about not getting to delve into a new set of academic books and new notebooks like this.
However I just got a job in an academic bookshop so they can't keep me away from the books for long. :)

I like the pastel color theme here. Also, as Anonymous said, those jeans do look quite nice on you.

Buing new stuff for school is THE best thing about going back to school. Love your outfit, it's different for you, but it works. Love it, quite American Apparel. :)

I love this outfit! I am going to do a post about Blundstones as well! They are one of the best purchases I have ever made...i wear them in the winter (very warm), during rainstorms, hiking up mountains, and they are great for bike riding! enjoy!

Sophie said...

I agree, going back to 'school' is always fun, although it was a little more enjoyable when glitter pens excited me. Oh wait a minute, they still do excite me. sweeet.

Although I've been reading your blog for a really long time, and it's right up there with my favourites, I've never actually commented. This is a major faux-pas in the blogging world so I would just like to say now that I adore you outfits and your writing style.
So yes keep it up gal!
