back to {design} class.

Today marks a bit of a marathon day for little old me, but it's one I'm happy to tackle! I have a big day at my day job, then it's off to my first class of the semester at RISD...I'm taking a really geek-tastic class on web design {not photography this time around!} and I am thrilled to get started. If I could have luxe "school supplies", I'd throw these gorgeous goodies in that fabulous Kate Spade tote. 

{1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5}

Ok, so that Black n' Red isn't necessarily a "luxe" item, but I could fill my bag with them! I have always been a fan of fun {and in this case--fabulous} pens and I think I would look pretty studious in those Warby Parkers. The DVF scarf would tie it all together with a few pom-poms ;)

Even if you're not in school this fall, what would you count as a back to class must-have?

I hope your Tuesday goes speedily--I'm hoping for the same! This week's Friday's Fancies theme is Gametime chic, so if you'd like to get in on the action, email me--I'll get you some goodies to help with your post! See you back here tomorrow! xoxo {av}

P.S. I'm loving all the rendez-vous recaps from AlexBiancaEmily, JaimeJenKristenLauraLindsayRachaelStephanie, WhitneyZoe and Anna + Emily...with plenty more to come! Thank you all again for coming and for your sweet words about the weekend. I want to press rewind! {psst: If I missed your post, email me!}

  13. Your RISD class sounds wonderful, and I'm totally smitten with your back to school pieces! I think a darling pair of loafers is a must-have, and I do adore a cute pair of glasses! I guess that means I should start wearing mine...
