Back to School







Teacher Planner: Erin Condren, Glasses: Burberry, Coffee Mug: Alice+Olivia for Starbucks, iPad case & Stationery Set: Lilly Pulitzer (similar), Name Tag Holder: Vera Bradley (Ziggy Zinnia)

My back to school post today has two parts.  The first part includes my favorite teacher supplies for the new school year.  First of all, I have to talk about the most amazing teacher planner out there.  This planner is from Erin Condren, and it includes so many useful pages including student checklists and weekly planning pages.  I am so excited to use it (hopefully it will make planning a little more fun)! Next, the Vera Bradley luggage tags are perfect to hold your Staff ID and key card.  They are also easy to wipe off and keep clean. Sticky notes and flair pens (my favorite) are also teacher staples.  I also cannot make it through the day without my morning coffee, and this Alice & Olivia mug is my favorite (who wouldn't love a mug with a tutu?!).

Also, these apple cookies were ordered for back to school by a fellow teacher for her staff.  They were really fun to make and I made a few extra for my teammates also :)

(Sorry this post is so long)






Dress: H&M, Blazer: H&M, Flats: (old) also love these and these, Bags: Tory Burch (old) and Kate Spade also love this, Bracelet: Kate Spade (similar), Watch: Michael Kors, Earrings: Kate Spade, Lips: MAC Relentlessly Red, Sunglasses: (similar)

The second part of my post includes my first day of school outfit details.  I love back to school shopping as much now as I did when I was a student!  I love to wear a dress on the first day, but it is very important that I am comfortable (after all, I'm running around after 6 year olds all day).  This is also why flats are the most practical for me when I'm teaching (and I definitely don't need the extra height with my first graders).  When I go to school I usually carry a large bag that I can throw everything into including my binders and planner.  Sometimes when I use my larger bags I like to put a smaller bag inside that contains my personal items that need to be easily accessible, such as my keys, wallet, and phone.  This Kate Spade bag is perfect for that. I also like the addition of this blazer to make this dress look a little more professional, and it can be removed for recess duty :)

I cannot believe the first day of school is just a few days away! I have been in back to school mode the past few weeks getting my classroom ready for my first graders. I think I'm as ready as I'll ever be!  Bring on the first day!  I'm taking the weekend off and trying my best to not think about school for a few days.  I am really excited because I am leaving today to go to Philadelphia with Zach for the weekend to visit my sister and brother-in-law. Hope you all have a great weekend!
