Schools out for summer.....

I think I'm beginning to get that "back to school" feeling. I don't think working in a childrenswear shop helps as we are really stocking up on uniforms! And I don’t think I am the only one. My fella just messaged me and said the radio is playing songs that remind him of his school days. It’s in the air!!!

All I want to do is buy new things. Pencils, pencil cases etc. I think I might treat myself to a few more Etsy purchases later in the month in order to satisfy this particular craving.

But as much as I love stationary, I love clothes more.

 I think this floral dress would be a perfect end of summer buy. Wear now with bare legs (ha this is England so maybe not) and sandals until the chilly weather and dark nights roll in, then don a pair of opaque’s and brogues. Add my gorgeous, trusty satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Ccompany and I think I have the perfect first day of school (uni) outfit. Oh and check out this post at Super Duper for some super sock suggestions and further proof that the back to school bug is spreading. Now where’s my conkers!??!


  1. I've totally had that feeling lately! Which is silly cos there's at least a month left of summer (for me anyway) You're right, I bet looking at school uniforms all day doesn't help!

  2. I'm so excited though. I want crisp, white shirts.
