Gathered Around a Library

All of your new supplies have been purchased. Stacks of notebooks, classic literature and extra long dorm sheets crowd the floor of your house. You’ve got your Barbour jacket and bean boots. What’s next? Back-to-school clothes.

A woman on TV this morning was talking about “money-saving tips” for the back-to-school season. She said that the weather is still warm when school starts, so we shouldn’t bother buying back-to-school clothes. You should have seen the look on my face. Pure shock and horror. My mom just laughed at the audacity. Look, we can all stop pretending. The only reason we’re all so excited to go back to school is because we get to buy new pencils and a carload of J.Crew sweaters. This is not something to be ashamed of. This is to be embraced. It is the start of a new season, a new school year. For some of you, it’s the start of the next four years at your respective universities. If that new Shep shirt is going to make you feel slightly more at ease or if that Kate Spade tote is going to serve as motivation to get out of bed and go to class (which it will, because it is the cutest thing ever and you have to show it off)…then, by all means, get it.

So, what are you wearing this semester?
