Back-to-School Wishlist

It's the day before August... This only means one thing to me: School starts soon. Along with being reluctant to go back, I still have my summer assignments to complete AND I also have to arrange my college class to take this year. Seriously, the only thing getting me through this is the excuse to buy a ton of things for back-to-school, so here are a few of my favorites:

1. Patent Leather Boots: A long time ago, I saw pink ones at Wal-Mart for super cheap, like $13. At the time, I was too self-conscious to wear anything super wacky like that. I deeply regret passing them up, but I think I'll be able to find some easily soon.

2. A Black-and-White Dress: I once saw a dress in the window of Charlotte Russe similar to this one paired with a mint belt. I'm a sucker for both mint and polka dots! :-)

3. Circle Skirts: The way these skirts drape down is just so lovely. I've debated making one, but the amount of material would be ridiculous, so buying is a much easier (and mayber even cheaper) alternative. And this one is corduroy!

4. Glitter Oxfords: These have been on my wishlist for a while now. I can't seem to find the perfect ones since I want rainbow glitter. A DIY is in order, maybe? (I also just got a pair of oxfords I don't like very much for super cheap :-) )

5. Polka Dot Tights: I have the perfect vintage dress to pair these with along with my brown oxfords and lace socks. Once I finish reworking the dress, hopefully I'll get a pair of these tights.

6. Midi-Length Skirt: I've never been a fan of maxi skirts, and sometimes short skirts seem awkward in the winter. This length looks so old-fashioned and adorable that I'm a fan!

What are some of your favorite pieces for back-to-school?

    I found rainbow glitter oxfords still in stock for only $10 at JCPenney!
