Back To School Must-Haves

Back to School Wearables

To Wear

Comfy shoes. You can't go wrong with a classic brand, like Converse or Dr. Scholls. Or try Payless' sneakers or flats-- they're surprisingly durable and comfortable, plus you can likely afford to buy a few pairs.

Schoolbag. A backpack is the go-to back to school bag, and with good reason, but there are other options too. If you seek a more stylish (but still functional) alternative, consider a messenger bag or a sturdy tote.

Outerwear. When school begins, there's already a slight chill in the air. Stay warm with a cozy cardigan or fun hoodie. These can be layered under a coat, come winter.

A scarf. It's light, it dresses up an outfit and, like outerwear, can be worn into winter.

Accessories. Arguably the best part of going to school is the opportunity to express yourself. Put cool buttons on your back pack, rock a sparkly bracelet or wear funky socks.
Back to School School Supplies

In Your Schoolbag

Notebook. Stock up on these at the dollar store. You can personalize plain ones with stickers, snapshots or washi tape.

Writing utensils. We love Bic round stic pens and Crayola crayons.

Pencils & pencil sharpener. No one wants to be that kid at the back of the room, using the teacher's obnoxiously loud sharpener. The horror! Bring your own!

Hole punch & 3 ring binders filled with lined and/or graph paper and dividers.

Post-its. For to do lists and quick notes to self.


Agenda. Stay organized and up to date.

Lunchbag & water bottle. Can't concentrate on an empty stomach, or if you're dehydrated.

Your turn: What do you consider your #1 back to school must-have?
