If I Was Going Back To School...

School in Charleston starts back later this week.  Last week, I went shopping for school supplies for 30+ elementary schoolers.  Each year, my organization puts on an event to help our participants feel confident and ready for the new school year by giving families who need them a backpack filled with new supplies.  I love seeing the looks on the kids' faces when they get their new colorful backpacks, but I also love getting to shop for supplies.  Picking out supplies every August was always my favorite, and honestly, I saw so many things when I was shopping that I wanted for myself!  I still remember (and have) my very-rectangular Lion King backpack from kindergarten.  Plus, my 10-year high school reunion is this weekend, so school is definitely on the brain.  I rounded up some of my favorites, because even adults need something to update our desks every once in a while!

How cute is that cat pencil pouch?  It would be so perfect for makeup brushes or loose change, too.  I just bought one of those portable chargers, and they are AWESOME.  It fits so well in my purse, weighs nothing, and I never think twice about using my phone/worrying that it won't have a charge for later.  Finally, I learned how to do the rubik's cube this summer, so I am all on that bandwagon.

Pin it for later!
If you were going back to school this year, what would be your must-have?

I need those pineapple bookends, and why weren't backpacks that chic when we were in school?! <3
