3 Things You Need This Week: Back to School

It’s tax-free weekend in Missouri, so that means it’s time to make your supply lists and check them twice.

But back-to-school shopping doesn’t always have to be all about the kids. We’ve rounded up the top three things we think you need to treat yourself to a little adult back-to-school style.

1. Personalized stationery

With all the “Thank yous” and “Thinking of yous,” we recommend investing in unique stationery for some good old-fashioned snail mail. We love this simple yet fun set (20 for $32.80, from Paper Source).

2.  Cool T-Shirt

Remember the thrill of picking out your first day of school outfit? Even though most of us have a work dress code, pick up a stylish tee just to wear it with a new outfit for post-work events. This Ocean & Sea shirt ($32, online and at Westside Storey) is top of our lists to take a place in our wardrobe.

3. Work-friendly bag

Backpacks have transitioned from 4th grade to chic thanks to some eclectic designers (here’s looking at you Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen!). But we can’t also get enough of an oversized work bag.  This woven leather black tote ($315, from Standard Style) is perfect for carrying all your essentials.
