I love this time of year. I live in Chicago, so the weather is starting to get a bit crisper, the leaves are about ready to change colors and all of the stores have their fall and winter gear in the windows.
Back to school shopping was always my absolute favorite because it meant a fresh start, new shoes, new pens / notebooks, and new clothes.
Every year I act like I am going back to school even though those days are far behind me. I always do some back to school shopping – it just has a bit of a different spin than it used to.
I’m pretty excited that 90’s fashions are back in for women. At first I wasn’t sure, but then I remembered how much I love a good jean shirt and how awesome flannels and plaid are. I love that the style is back but with less frump than 20 years ago. At least it feels less frumpy than it did 20 years ago, but what do I know? 🙂
I’ve compiled a few things that I have either purchased, am lusting after, or have in virtual shopping carts, ready for my new “school” year to start. Back to work after maternity leave and back to school… same, same, right?
Also, check out the kids clothes… Simon probably doesn’t need a cardigan to go to the nanny, but it’s darn cute…and while I’m window shopping, I thought that I might as well dress my husband too.
