  • Back to School Essentials

    Labor Day has passed and the official start of Fall is only weeks away, so it's definitely time to get Back-t0-School ready. And, what does Back-to-School mean? New clothes and fashion essentials, of course! So what are the hottest must have items that you should have in your backpack? And, what backpack should you even get??

    Your backpack is definitely an essential, as it's something that you will see and carry everyday of the week. So, let's start there! Since it's a fashion staple that you'll be carrying day in, day out, we definitely recommend making sure that you find one that you love (and that's practical, too, of course). With that said, don't be afraid go wild when it comes to choosing the perfect one. Teen Vogue recently put out a list of their Top 100 Backpacks for Back-to-School, and we're oogling over all of them! But, we narrowed it down from their long list to our favorites to make the decision a little easier for you.

    We like the bright plain bags because they are simple, fun, and easy to match with outfits.

    For the divas out there, we love the above recommendations from Teen Vogue. They're totally glammed out and will be sure to make a statement! If you love any of these backpacks, you can find all of the details for buying them in Teen Vogue's article.

    So with all of the technology these days you probably have an iPhone, iPod and/or laptop. These are all great products and also helps cut down the study time because of all the great resources they provide and on-the-go ability to do work. We love that you can download even your school books onto your devices; it's a perfect way to go green by saving paper and money! Also not having all those books in your bag makes your backpack a heck of lot lighter; no more breaking your back with a library of books, just download them!

    So, if you're a gadget geek like us, why not glam up your tech essentials? We love to see all the funky cool cases and they are a must have to show off your personality and style. If nothing else, they're great conversation starters for meeting new friends! Since we love pink and animal print, of course those are our go-to choices. But, there's plenty of different styles to choose from when it comes to dressing up (and protecting) your gadgets! Below are some of our favorites - all easily findable via Goole searches and Amazon!

    Of course you are going to need the basics such as notebooks, pens, pencils, highlighters, flash drives, and your organizer/planner. Always make sure that your backpack is stocked with these items because they are a definite must-have on school property. When shopping for these seemingly boring items, make it fun and pick out items that suite your personality. Just like the gadget protectors above, there's plenty of ways to add a personal touch to your stationary essentials, too.

    While it's always fun to add a chic touch to anything and everything, just remember that school is for learning, so do your best job to pay attention and get a good education. Keep those grades up and your confidence even higher! Good luck guys and make this school year a good one!

  • Trends That Work For Every Season!

    Before you start packing up your summer clothes and start making room for fall fashion trends (and Homecoming, of course), make sure you're not storing something that can be used for any season! There's so many different staple trends, from handbags to your nails, that you shouldn't be afraid to wear and re-wear, no matter what the season may be. So, read on to learn what trends you can easily transition from your Summer wardrobe into Fall...and even Winter and Spring!

    Crossbody Bags

    Why pack away your favorite crossbody bag? Crossbody bags fit perfectly with the over-sized sweater trend for Fall! They're also perfect to hold any little items you need for class, such as pens, pencils, and highlighters. The best part, though, is that since they're cross body, the weight is more evenly distributed, making them not super heavy to carry. Perfect for walking around campus! All of the bags listed above are from dELiA's and they're $19.90 each; such a great price!

    Neon Accented Nails:

    Everyone knows that Fall is all about rocking neutral colors on your nails, but we loved the neon trend during summer so much, that we decided to carry it over to Fall with our own little spin. Mix your favorite natural color with your favorite neon shade, and bam! The bright and bold neon is the perfect design to make those nails pop!

    Graphic Tees:

    Graphic tees are the perfect statement piece for any outfit! You can wear them with a skirt, jeans or even leggings! Graphic tees let your true interests and personalities shine through without you having to say a word. The ones above are perfect for both the nerd and fashionista in you!
