Back-to-School Goodies for Grown Ups
This past weekend, I reminisced with my brother about how, as kids, we dreaded Labor Day weekend. Full of tell-tale signs that school was coming, it usually included a trip to Staples to pick up supplies, a cruelly sweet barbecue on Monday evening, a last trip to the pool and of course, a frantic summer reading catch-up.
Luckily, now that I'm an adult, and presumably you are as well, we don't have to suffer—at least in the same way. Work never lets out, so we never feel that end-of-summer ache! But just because we aren't returning to the halls of our alma maters doesn't mean we can't look like it.
Backpacks are always a sound purchase, and they happen to be "having a moment." Perfect for your gym gear, your books, your spontaneous trips to the Appalachian Trail or maybe even night class?
I'm fairly certain The Great Gatsby is required reading in all high schools in the country. [Editor's note: It's not, but it should be!] For those of us who have enjoyed it again and again, it now comes in clutch form, thanks to those crazy kids at Kate Spade New York. After you've finished your required reading, you can build your library with other classic lit clutches.
