Wish List: Back to School Shopping
Though it’s been more than a few years since I’ve been in any kind of school situation, every time September rolls around, I get the urge to go back to school shopping. Now, you might think, “nah, you probably just want to go shopping for new fall clothes,” and you’d be right, but back to school shopping is different. Back to school shopping is more than just shopping for a new season–it’s shopping for those few particular outfits that are going to really make an impact, that are going to show who you are during the school year, that are going to be comfortable and cool.
So what if you’re not going back to school? It might still be fun to go “back to school” shopping and put together that totemic “first day of school” outfit (I can still remember some of the ones I wore to school through the years) along with a few other new outfits. Since we can’t all go shopping together, I put together what I would buy for my first day of school now, plus a few supplemental back to school items.
