Back-to-School Shopping (On Someone Else's Budget)

I'm taking a break from the regular food-centered posts to reminisce.  It's back-to-school time, and with this always brings memories of shopping with my parents.  In addition to school supplies, we were usually allowed to get two new outfits.

I'm not much of a shopper, but this time of year always brings a bit of a shopping urge that I usually resist.  But let's pretend I didn't resist ... and didn't have a budget.  Heck, let's just pretend mom and dad are taking me shopping for back-to-school clothes (again on an unlimited budget, ha)!  This is what I would get:

Bag - Burberry Large Check Hobo ($1525)
Shoes - Sergio Rossi Sand Patent Leather Pointy Toe Kitten Heel ($415)
Pants - Cross Jeanswear Laura Boot-cut Jeans ($65)
Shirt - Chelsea Flower Smoke Drape Back Button Blouse ($255)
Necklace - Aamaya by Priyanka Skull Necklace ($245)

Jacket - All Saints Marin Leather Biker Jacket ($735)
Ring - Sass and Bide Catch You Out Hinge Ring ($225)
Bracelet - LK Designs Chain Black Wrap Leather ($125)
Shirt - Amazon ($18)
Jeans - H&M Super Skinny Low Jeans ($33)
Shoes - Converse Black CT Platform High ($95)

Nail Polish - Union Jack Black Nailpolish by Butter London ($16)
Brown Bag - Monogram Cross Body Bag Louis Vuitton ($305)
Scarf - Burberry Extra Fine Checked Wool Scarf ($310)
Sunglasses - Burberry House Check Aviator Sunglasses ($210)
Black Bag -  Tory Burch Stacked T Small Cross Body Bag ($235)

I don't actually need any of these things, but it's still fun to pretend shop!  I'm holding out now until Vancouver in October, since I'm sure something will catch my eye there.

Did you do back-to-school shopping for clothes?  Do you still get those back-to-school feelings?

I love the outfits you threw together - especially the first one!

I loved back to school shopping. We usually got some new clothes and it was always so exciting to wear them for the first time. I still get nostalgic this time of year as I really loved going back to school each fall (except when I was in grad school - hated it then).

Ah if only we had someone else's budget. Cute picks.
