School Supplies

Hey babies!

Growing up, every summer I’d look forward to going back to school for one reason: school supplies. I can’t explain it, but I’ve always been a huge sucker for new pens and pencils, a fresh planner and a precious tote to carry it all in.

This year is a little different since I’m not headed back to school in the fall. However, that doesn’t mean I get to miss out on buying new supplies! No matter how old I am, I’ll always have a need for the perfect planner and the accessories to go with it. 
Here are my picks for the perfect school supplies:

{one} My favorite pens in the whole wide world
{two} Cute washi tape is a necessity for marking up your planner or bookmarking pages
{three} A monthly planner
{four} Stabilo fineliners, the only markers you’ll ever need
{five} Customizable notebooks for notes, grocery lists, etc.
{six} A precious acrylic tape dispenser
{seven} A safari-themed notepad

{eight} An e-reader protector
{nine} Something to make math a little more fun
{ten} Kate Spade earbuds for listening in style
{eleven} Colored flash drives to brighten your day
{twelve} A polka dot sleeve to protect your laptop

All that’s left is a cute bag to tote it all around in!

Such as this {Longchamp Large Tote}, a back-to-school staple.
I just ordered a {May Books} personalized planner and can’t wait for it to come in. You’ll have to wait and see what color and style I chose! {Pssst! There’s a groupon deal going on right now if you want to save some $$}
What school supplies are you loving this year? I’d love to hear… after all, it’s my favorite thing!
Love, Cait

    You have a fabulous blog and I am following you now!
    See you around πŸ™‚

  3. Such great things, Caitlin. You're going to laugh, but I just posted on my fan facebook page last night that I want this bag. Kate Middleton had one yesterday.

  4. I'm a sucker for great 'school' supplies, too (even if I graduated college 10 years ago, haha). These are amazing. I'm on the hunt for a great stapler but love that calculator and all the fun cases. Great to find your blog… love the content!

  10. cuuuute notepads. i have a bunch of longchamp bags. i love them bc of the color/shape but hate that they don't have pockets. it's fashion over function with those babies!

  11. I have been eyeing those LongChamp bags forever!! And I am the same exact way…I love going to Office Depot and just cruising the aisles. I am a sucker for all the colored sharpies! πŸ˜‰ You are never too old for "school" supplies! πŸ˜‰

  12. School supplies are the BEST! And the ones you have chosen are amazing!

    I've always loved this quote from You've Got Mail:
    "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms. "

  13. great must have list!

    now following – great blog!

  16. I love buying school supplies! I use a large Longchamp as my school bag, and it's perfect!

  17. I love that tape. Even though I am not in school anymore I tend to still buy school supplies lol. xo

  18. Oh my goodness, could that tape be any cuter? Love the polka dotted one!
