Back to School {Shopping}

Well, I'm finished with my summer classes, which means it's time for the fall semester to begin. Sigh. In all reality I have one week to get myself prepared, but it's not much. To honor the sometimes-dreaded-back-to-school I've put together a mini-list of items that would make heading back to the books that much more enjoyable.

1. A cute little Vespa. Everyone knows parking on any college campus is horrid.
2. Some cute new clothes, of course! {from Lulu's Boutique}
3. A rainbow of Tory Burch flats. Comfy is key!
4. A new Blackberry Tour. My friend Kenny says these are the best. Kenny = Phone Guru.
5. I've always loved Balenciaga's Le Dix collection. A large please, for my Macbook.

These would all come in quite handy, if I do say so myself. What would be on your back-to-school wish list? I may have missed something totally obvious. I was perfecting my flip/cannonball form late into the night at my sister's pool, so I'm a bit off today.

I think I would only add a really posh day planner. I've got my eye on the ones by Louis Vuiton or Coach, but I'm way past my back to school years! hee hee

Tracy-Girl said...

All of them put together would be amazing... especially that amazing vespa!!

The vespa and white top are so COOL! When I was in school, my favorite things to shop for were school supplies. I loved buying college ruled paper, 3 ring binders, mini staplers...the works. I usually went a bit batty in the school section of Target! :)

I'm in LOVE with those flats!

There's a little something at my blog for you :)

Shaina said...

Can you believe that we already went back to school??! Yesterday was the first day of school here in Bloomington. Crazy, if you ask me.

You have a fantastic shopping list...the rainbow of Tory Revas would definitely be on my list, too. Along with pretty much everything new that kate spade just came out with - apparel, shoes, bags, whatever. I LOVE.

Aaaaaand let's be honest here, maybe a gift card to Chick-Fil-A. :)

In this wonderful life... said...

dolce chic said...

I don't know if my comment went through? It was long too! I love this list! I want everything in it, especially the handbag, and flats.

You're the sweetest...I'm so glad I stumbled on your blog last year! :)

The early wake-up for France was DEFINITELY worth it :)

#1 on my wish list for back to school is definitely a new Mac! I love my Powerbook but it is almost 5 years old now, and I'm really wanting to upgrade!

A Vespa would be fun!

Barefoot in the Park said...

agreed. i'd just add a money tree so i could have all of the above!

Summer Wind said...

The iphone is top on my back to school list, sadly I still have 9 more long months to wait until my plan is done!

Elizabeth Marie said...

Balenciaga bags are my fav!!!

I just wanted to say hi! I'm Gabby's sister and she raves about your blog and I already love it!

Great list.

Lacey said...

I never grow tired of seeing Le Dix...such a gorgeous classic. I love everything on your list. I have the red Reva flats on my list of "necessities" but sadly, no more shopping for me until I get another loan check ;)

Pink Maple said...

I'll take one of each please! :)

I'll take those flats too! :)
