Tax-free weekend/back to school haul

I just finished celebrating a magical occasion during which many fabulous items are exempt from sales tax in honor of the returning school year. Seeing as I pretty much shop for clothes year-round and I won’t have any school supply lists until school actually starts (plus the fact that I’m incredibly picky), I didn’t get too many items. But I wanted to share what I did get because who doesn’t love talking about shopping?

I purchased the following at Kohl’s:


I got the sweater because I love layering big sweaters over dresses and it’s really lightweight (it never gets cold where I live). And I’ve been in search of a cute water bottle that I can use every day and hopefully not lose. Plus the paisley matches my backpack.

I got mostly school supplies from Target:



A cute planner (which could benefit from some decoration, perhaps), some adorable composition notebooks (every thing is better in mini) and some concealer, which I’m trying for the first time, to cover up the dark circles that I KNOW will be growing under my eyes by the second week.

I got a tee shirt dress from Old Navy, which I intend on using for layering (the possibilities are endless and already coming to me…)



It looks like olive is going to be a big color for me this year.

And finally, I got some fake flowers from the dollar store to use in a DIY:



Stay tuned to see how I use them……

Are you excited for school? I am always SUPER excited and this year is no exception. It’s gonna be totally awesome.


Keep it classy,
