I was sifting through the mail last week when a particular piece of paper caught my eye. It was your typical store circular, but plastered on the front page were the words “BACK TO SCHOOL.”

BACK TO SCHOOL? UH HELLO, IT’S JULY?!?

Didn’t school just end? I don’t think my body has fully recovered from the cups and cups of hot coffee that I chugged in May during finals week.

Then I remembered how much I LOVE school and how excited I am to start my senior(!) year in August. Not quite sure I’m ready to be a full #adult yet, but luckily I have a year to figure it out!

Click through to see some of my essential college pieces - they can be a bit pricey, but they'll last you all through college and beyond!

But I digress. Mid-July is the time to start thinking about gearing up for back to school, especially if you’re headed to college in August! Rome wasn’t built in a day, and trust me, neither will your dorm!

College itself is an investment. But it’s also important that you invest in some essential college pieces. These pieces might be a little pricey up front, but they’ll last you four (or more!) years. And they’ll make your college experience just that much more enjoyable. So grab your circulars and let’s get shopping!
