Back to School High Five Friday

Tuesday is the day my kids go back to school, and the college students have taken over returned to our university town. Back-to-school season is upon us!

1. Fall Color
World Market
The pumpkin color of this chair's upholstery is making me feel fired up for fall. It's no longer available online, although the website shows my local World Market does have it in stock, and on sale. To get the look for less, consider some pillows in this color instead. I like this velvety one and this koi/persimmon colorblock option.


2. First Day of School Outfit




For the moms, I should add, since children can put together the most ridiculously mismatched outfit and still look adorable. 

I love how much this Jones New York dress reminds me of a Catholic school girl uniform, and with those bright blue stripes at the bottom! Hail Mary!!
Harper Bazaar
Tory Burch

I also like checking out the accessories from Tory Burch, not because I can afford any of it, but to get an idea of what's current and then try to replicate it with what I have. And can I just say--those crimson flowers in the photo above?! Gorgeous!

3. Recover from Summer



Summer is late nights, BBQ, and lots of sunshine for me so back-to-school is not just time to return to a more structured routine, it's also time to recover. I like these tips from beauty guru Tata Harper on how to get skincare back on track.

4. Shut the Front Door
Our front door always has a wreath on it, and I've been thinking about how to change it to reflect the new season. This giveaway has given me some good ideas. I also like the felt flowers on this one via Shelterness.

5. A Real Peach


And nothing beats the taste of a real peach--fresh from the Farmers Market. Yum!!!


Do you have big Labor Day plans? I'm wearing all white and taking the kids to a baseball game.
Have a happy, safe holiday!
