Jennifer Blake: Back to school essentials

Back to school essentials

August 26, 2013

Today is my last first day of school. It has been a long road and I am so excited to be going back for my last semester of classes. Guys, I am so close to being done, like so close. I can't believe it.
I would have never made it this far without my amazing and supportive husband, and my wonderful family. I wont lie the best part about going back to school...well getting all of the essentials of course. Fall means some new back to school clothes and of course some new supplies!
So first off are the supplies. I am a sucker for new office/school supplies. My favorite pens are the Papermate flair pens, I also love the BIC fine point pens, and lastly I love the Papermate sharp pencils. I also love those pencil cases.
Now on to the clothes, I have been loving the Gap lately. Their clothes come in tall so they fit me really well. I am currently loving the white boyfriend shirt, the forever skinny jeans, the striped sweater, and absolutely love the green tunic. Lastly, I already bought a new pair of boots, but I absolutely love these Tommy Hilfiger boots.

The Gap currently has a 30% off coupon for online orders, so it is a great time to buy!

Wish me luck on the first day of the semester, hoping the week is an easy one!

What are you back to school or fall essentials?!


  1. Happy 1st day! Hope it's a great one :)

    I still love school supplies. Those pencils, along with RSVP pens and Sharpie pens are my favorites. A new notebook is also a favorite...I just love the promise of blank pages!

  2. I LOVE those boots!!!

    Good luck getting back into the groove of things!! xx

  3. Those are the BEST pencils. My back to school shopping includes H&M online shopping, H&M, and H&M.

  4. I love office supply shopping too. I usually spend way to much time in the supply aisle when I'm out of pens at work. My favorites are the Uni-ball Signo Micro points. I'm terrible at writing with at thick point pen.


Connecting with you is my favorite. Thanks for stopping by!
