I got "pinteresting" (is that a new term?)...if not...it is now!( It's the next "googling", I tell you!) and I felt all nostalgic and almost...ALMOST....wanted to be a student all over again.
I would be WAY cooler now. Honestly.
I'd look super cute like this....mis-matched plaid patterns and all....
Or this cute little menswear inspired look...pretty sure I could never pull it off, but I'd likely die trying :)
And don't even get me started on Gossip Girl, and the never ending plethora of fabulous outfit inspiration. I always wanted to wear a school uniform.
But alas, it never happened.
I'm sure I would have been laughed to scorn had I shown up at my public school in a little pleated skirt and knee-high socks.
I settled for playing field hockey instead ;) Truth be told, I only signed up because of the cute skirt. Ironically, I ended up loving the sport! who knew!
Seriously, though....don't you just love thick grey tights? (why am I fantasizing about fall clothes....I feel like we've hardly had a summer here yet!!)
I'd definitely need a bag like this....it just screams "prep school" :) I'd probably need to take out a loan to pay for it....but whatever......so worth every penny!
Then I got on to thinking about dorm rooms....sigh.....
I'm pretty sure mine would have a tutu lamp just like this....
And a vintage globe or two. Oh...and chalkboards...lots of those.
What is it with me and little vintage school chairs? I have several scattered around our house, and even though my husband has put the kibosh on me bringing any more in, I just can't stop myself!
loving the zinc-topped table too!
I would obviously be riding around campus on this bike.
So old-school cool :)
And now, as always, I want to plan a "back to school" party!! It's just too bad I'll have to at least wait until next year when my little Toby boy is going off to kindergarten! snif.
I will NOT deal well. I can tell you right now.
I'll need the party to cheer me up....and what better inspiration than this one...
Look at this little man....nope...not mine, but just so darn cute I couldn't resist including him :)
Again...love the vintage school desk and chairs!
Now...on to the the boring stuff.......
The reality of being a student is that it's so darn expensive! I was so lucky to not have to deal with student loans, but I know that's a minority out there. It's not fun to have to worry about how to get bad credit student loans, or even student loans without cosigner. As if college isn't stressful enough.
Well....now that I'm done reminiscing....back to real life ;)
Hope you're all having a great summer evening!
