There was an undeniable chill in the air this morning as I left home and headed to work and it occurred to me just how close we are to September. Just two weeks left and it's back to school for the kids and a return to routine for the rest of us. I loved school (and back to school shopping!) so I always feel a tinge of nostalgia each year when September rolls around. I can still recall the smell of my new school supplies ... binders, Laurentian pencil crayons, a new geometry set and a new pencil case were always on the list. Do kids even use these things anymore or all they all walking down the halls with iPad Minis stuffed in their pockets?! Since I've been daydreaming about heading back to school, I perused a few favourite online shops to find a few 'back to school' items that are adult-appropriate, all perfect for a working girl!
