We spent all day yesterday running an unreal amount of errands to make sure that the kiddos are ready for their first day back to school.  And it got me thinking....moms need a back-to-school list too!  

1 {Cardigan Sweaters}
Classic merino long cardigan

When the kids go back to school it will too warm for many of the new Fall arrivals. But if your children's school is anywhere as cold as my kiddos' is then you need a cardigan. A classic cardigan like this one from J.Crew would go with so many tops and fit neatly in your purse.

2 {A New Handbag}

Don't you think that your new cardigan would look great tucked into a new purse?  A mother's handbag does just as much work as a child's backpack, if not more. So I say a bag that has classical line and quality is the way to go. And I think this Tory Burch Satchel fits the bill perfectly!

3 {Travel Coffee Mug}

I am so not happy about having to start setting my alarm clock but I know that coffee will help me get through. I will ground my fresh bean the night before and set the coffee pot as always but I think this travel mug will brighten my mornings.  And I am so grateful to April for letting me know that World Market has such cute travel mugs!!!

4 {A New Planner}

I know that most people get their next planner at the start of the new year but I find it best to get one at the start of the new school year. That might make me sound like a silly Stay-At-Home-Mom but really my children are my "business" and this is the start of our "business year". This year I went with a new planner and so far so good!

5 {A Reward}

After you have been running all over town trying to get every item on your child's back-to-school lists you are going to be wiped out.  So I say that we all deserve, no need, a relaxing reward! A mani or pedi, a new dress, new slippers or maybe a new piece of bling. Whatever speaks to you....I say go for it!!!!


  1. Great stuff! My friends tease me that I have a cardigan in every color. They may be right. Love the TB bag. I'm on the hunt for a new one. Have a great weekend!

  2. New slippers are the best! I swear I'm 95 yrs old because I wear slippers around the house every day (sometimes all day). No bare feet for me.

  3. Okay, I have to admit, sweaters, fall bags and cozy Ugg slippers do get me a little excited for fall! The alarm clock, not so much! Happy end of summer, and thanks for giving me something to look forward to!

  4. Go get you that amazing coffee mug! It makes the mornings just a bit more joyful! :)

  5. Love that bag! I'm a big slipper wearer too. These look so comfy!
