Back to School With Barrington Gifts

I've been back at school for over a month now and I'd like to think that I'm getting into a routine but I'm still missing the lazy days of summer! One of the things that makes life a little easier, especially when you're getting up in the dark at 5:30am, is having some simple yet chic wardrobe staples like this red eyelet dress that makes getting dressed in the morning a cinch! I also like the fact that this dress is both light and cool, yet the red color is perfect for transitioning into the fall season.

Another essential in my work wardrobe is a great bag that looks classic and chic but that is also practical and can hold all of my essentials, like the stacks of papers that I have to grade! Barrington Gifts makes some great bags that are perfect for work or really just about any occasion. The thing I like best about their bags is that everything can be customized so that you end up with a bag that is unique, just like you! I really had fun looking through the various patterns that Barrington has to offer for their St. Anne tote, which is what I decided to get. In addition to selecting a pattern, you can also get a stripe on the bag, monogrammed with your initials in a variety of colors that is. The possibilities are truly endless!

As you can see from the configuration, I chose the St. Anne tote and I decided to go for something a little colorful yet still classic. I wanted a bag that would go with most of my wardrobe so that I could wear it on a daily basis. Ultimately, the blue pattern I selected with the red and pink stripe and my monogrammed initials definitely fit the bill! I'll definitely enjoy using my Barrington bag as my school bag for this year and hopefully for years to come!

  2. As always you combine colors perfectly!

    Happy day xx


  3. Love the dress. It's the perfect cut and length for school. A good school bag is hard to find. Last year I thought I had finally found the right one and then the shoulder strap came unstitched half-way through the year! Could be I put too much in it...lol. Hope this one works well for you!
