Back to School

 I was always the kid who loved the first day of school. The new backpack, the pencil box full of fresh erasers and markers, the new Lisa Frank folders in my three-ring binder, and of course, my first day of school outfit. There was never a year (even into college) that I didn't get that back-to-school giddiness that came with searching for the perfect outfit. It seems ironic to me that I ended up pursuing a career that put me right back in that atmosphere. As most of you know, I work as a school counselor, and (believe it or not) I still can't resist the excitement that comes with putting together my first day of school ensemble. While I don't put quite as much effort into it as I did in middle school, the feeling still brings me pure happiness and joy. Here's how I would style a 'first day of school' look (and it's not too much of a miss from what I actually wore last week!)

Awe, I miss the first day of school! After finishing my masters, this is the first school season of many that I will no longer embrace. Precious outfit!

Jules, I didn't know that you are a school counselor! How awesome! :) This is such a fitting job for you! Although we've never met, the best thing about blogging is that you get to know others on a personal level and your such a kind hearted, loving person I could totally see you changing some kiddo's life... and filing their spirt with so much love!

I loved the back to school feeling as well! Nothing better than crisp corners to all your folders and notebooks, new backpack, pencil bags... OUTFITS! EEEK! I wish I could now go back in time!
