It's that time again. It happens every year if we are ready for it or not. Whether you're starting your first year of middle school or sending your third child to kindergarten, you know the pressure that comes with back-to-school shopping and trying to navigate what's cool, what's in and, of course, what's not.
But it's not just about the stress; it's also an exciting time to revamp closets, to get the perfect lunch box that speaks volumes about "who I am," without saying a word. For me, it was about the backpack. For others, maybe it's the shoes or the pencil case. Whatever it is, make it reflect you!
