Back to School for Grown Ups

Before school started this year, my son was all, “I don’t want to go back, school is boring!”  but now that he’s back with his friends, he’s loving it and said he couldn’t wait to go back!  Yesterday, he woke up before his alarm!  We’ll see how long that lasts!  The excitement of back to school isn’t just for kids, though!  I’m loving it for us grown-ups too.  I spent all my money during the Nordstrom sale, but that didn’t stop me from browsing for more you! 😉


sunnies |  I’m in love with my Nsale sunnies, but I still feel like I need a pair in my car, hubby’s car, purse, gym bag because it seems like I’m always fishing for them!  This pair is super stylish and only $12!
pencils |  Who can resist these adorable floral and striped pencils?  I have this version sitting in this gold pineapple on my desk as we speak.
planner |  We all remember the thrill of choosing a new Trapper Keeper each year before school started, right?!  That memory will never die!  This planner is for my inner 12-year old, but appropriate for a working woman.
cardigan | If you need to keep the chill off at work, these cardigans are perfectly lightweight to wear in the summer with tanks, camisoles and short sleeves, and then again in the fall with long sleeve tops.  It comes in 16 colors/patterns and petite and regular sizes.  Also, the longer dip in the back is good for covering the booty.
tee |  This slouchy chic v-neck tee was so popular during the Nsale that it kept selling out, but it’s back in 5 colors with several sizes available.
mug |  You can drink your morning coffee or tea in this cute GIRL BOSS mug, or put your pretty pencils inside!
tote | If you’ve followed me for more than 2 minutes, I’m sure you’ve seen or heard me talking about this faux leather reversible tote.  I have it in two colors, but not the classic black/tan.  It’s super sturdy and can hold a laptop if you want to take your computer to a coffee shop to get some work done.
watch | Pretty, pretty Kate!  And also comes in blush/beige and black.
booties |  Aren’t these perforated booties cute?!  They come in 7 colors and have gotten nearly 1400 postive reviews.  Everyone says they are stylish and comfortable, but most people say to order a 1/2 size up.
nail polish | Gorgeous nail colors in this set by butter.  It’s a $48 value, for $30.
As for the Nordstrom sale that ended last week, lots of you were bummed that you didn’t get this faux leather jacket, these peep-toe booties, and this easy-to-wear swing dress before they sold out.  As I write this, those things have been restocked (the booties in limited sizes).

  1. I love everything!!!!! I just wish I had more money to buy them all ? FYI, the jacket is again sold out. I happened to find by chance the exact same jacket at target a couple of weeks ago. Not sure if it's also available online.
