I always get in the mood to make these kinds of things at this time of year. I go back to school in just two days! I can't believe summer flew by so quickly. I still have a little bit more shopping I'd like to do (mainly for shoes and underwear) but I doubt it'll get done before school starts. I also need a new pair of sheer black tights because unfortunately, I got a huge hole in mine.
That Herschel Supply Co. bag is the one I ordered last week; it's scheduled to arrive on the first day of school, and I'm really excited. They didn't have gray, but I decided mauve was just as good. I could use a little color, because other than that I'm feeling lots of black and white, as usual. I'm still completely in love with the Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2010 collection; it may just be my favorite of all time. That'll probably rub off a little bit on me this season. Also, on a related note, I'm still totally on board with the socks and shoes trend.
Of course, all of this will have to wait until it actually cools down to some sort of reasonable temperature. I remember on the first day of school last year, I wore a superthin spaghetti strap top with my shortest skirt and gladiators, and I was still burning! It doesn't really cool off around here until late September. But we do fluctuate a lot from day to day, so hopefully there'll be some cool days mixed in.
For now, I've got to go finish reading Life of Pi and do my summer assignment for French class, which, in the spirit of summer, I've been putting off until the last week.
