Monday Must Haves: Back to School Essentials

Back to School Essentials

Back-to-School season is finally here! Lately, I have been loving all of the cute school supplies that I have seen in the stores [a.k.a. Target]. I decided to put together a collage of all of the essentials you need in order to "rock" your first day of school! Read more to find out how to start off this school year on a positive note! Hope you enjoy!

1. Your favorite Backpack: I know we all want those super cute designer backpacks but make sure that you don't make the mistake of buying one that won't fit any of your supplies ( I had to learn this the hard way). My JanSport backpack may not be the cutest backpack out there but it sure does get the job done! 

2. Makeup / Beauty Bag : I love keeping these beauty supplies with me in a little makeup bag because it makes it super convenient when I want to freshen up after my dance class or any class. { Powder // Concealer // Body Mist 

3. Cute School Supplies: My all-time favorite thing about going back to school is getting new school supplies. I am so excited to start using my Lily Pulitzer Agenda! It is so bright and colorful that it makes me happy, just by looking at it! ;) { Gel Pen // Mechanical Pencil // Notebook }

4. Personal items: School can be tough sometimes, but it's 10 times better when I bring all of my favorite goodies with me! Make your first day of school enjoyable by bringing your favorite drinks and snacks with you. Starting the day off with a cup of coffee, green tea or even water always sets my day up for success! { Kind Bar // Portable Phone Charger // Wallet // Phone Case }

I hope that I inspired you to start this school year off feeling confident by sharing my back to school essentials. There is nothing better than feeling prepared, especially during the times when you can easily be stressed out [ a.k.a school]. I encourage you to avoid being that girl who is always desperate for a piece of gum at school, but knows she has a pack at home... I'm kidding, but try to be that girl who is always prepared, no matter what faces her, because those girls are on the pathway of success! ;) 

Thank you so much for reading! 
Let me know what your back to school essentials are in the comments below. 
Talk to you soon!

  1. I haven't been in school for over a year now since I did my masters, but snacks are definitely important! Love the spotty notebook as well! It definitely makes taking notes more fun when you have pretty notebooks to take them in.

  2. I haven't been in school for almost two years now but I love your little list, I've never think about having deodorant in my backpack but I always keep one in my car, they come in handy during a hot day!

  4. I basically kept all of these things in my bag when I was in school as well, although I don't think portable chargers were even I thing when I was in school! (That makes me feel old aha)
