The 40 Best Back To School Accessories

Untitled-1Alrighty guys, as much as I hate to admit it, back to school time has rolled around once again. Personally for me it’s a bit scary, I’m starting my senior year in college – eek! For some, back to school represents a little more quiet time around the house, for others it means entrapment in a classroom and too much time spent on homework, and for the lucky few it represents ¬†the excitement of a new, fresh year. Sad as is it to see summer go, going back to school is still a fun time- you get to see your friends, you might get to be the big shots on campus, and you can finally break out your plaid and get ready for some serious leaf stomping. Back to school is also an important time in terms of possessions. No back to school ensemble is complete without the best backpacks, coolest notebooks, and sparkliest pens. Click on through for forty fabulous back to school accessories. And if you aren’t going back to school, that’s ok too- backpacks are super chic right now, cases shaped like foods are fun, and who doesn’t love a newer, cuter iPhone case?¬†Click through below!

Louis Vuitton x Marc Jacobs

Whether you love Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs or not (but who wouldn’t?) you must give this exhibit a visit if you are in Paris. It chronicles both the achievements of Louis and his son Georges Vuitton, and Marc Jacobs as the creative director since 1997. For a Louis lover like myself, this exhibit was amazing- I could not get enough of those trunks! They even had one with M.L. on it- I definitely need that, birthday present anyone? 
The first floor was all Vuitton, and the second all Jacobs. Each was laid out beautifully and innovatively. There were mini garments to showcase what a daily outfit consisted of in the 1800’s, pieces x-rayed, a wall of video inspiration, models with animals heads, and the list goes on. Definitely worth it to give this exhibit a look.
I die for this suit.

Currently Craving: French Fashion

I looove French Fashion- Chanel, YSL, Balenciaga, Hermes, the list goes on and on. Being in Paris, I am surrounded by all these stores and more, and I can’t help from wanting everything! One of my favorite French companies is Carven- I love how girly, young, and fun the clothes are. I especially love the  Cotton Dress with Ruching (1) and the Biker Style Cotton Jacket (2) which is perfect for summer since its lightweight. You simply can’t be French without something Hermes, and the classic lacquered H bracelet in white (3) is super summery and therefore perfect. If you buy no other white, buy the Celine Cabas in Python White (4), need I say more? It’s Celine, it’s Python.

The Louis Vuitton Yellow Pouchette (5) and sunglasses (6) literally couldn’t be cuter, and the YSL Arty Ring (7) in that light turquoise/mint is so perfect for the summer. A Carven blouse (8) comes next- how cool is that print? and then we have the most amazing Lanvin iPhone case (9). I mean, come on. Alber Elbaz is just too cute.


It’s been rainy here quite a bit in Paris, so the Etoile Isabel Marant Skinny Jeans (10) would be fabulous to own. (side note- I also love Isabel Marant- her latest collection was too good). Repetto Flats (11) are pricey but amazing, and oohing says summer like a bubblegum pink YSL Clutch (12). (ok, maybe a lot of other things do, but let’s just pretend). Another great French brand is Sandro, and the color of this Shirt (13) is so light and pretty. Chloe sandals (14) and a Chanel Bike (15) are obvious essentials for Paris in the summer. Because who doesn’t need a Chanel bike?
