school girl

So as the weather's been bad, and I've been bored, I've spent more time then I would like to admit in the last day or so watching re runs of Gossip Girl. The clothes (of course) are to die for on all the characters. Sometime's I think Blair and Serena are given too much credit, though I of course love them, has anyone checked out Lily recently? Vanessa? Jenny? The "minions"?  I don't think there's a character on that show that hasn't worn something that I wouldn't die to own. Ok, I take that back, out of the female characters (though if Nate was my boyfriend he definitely has plenty of sweaters I would love to steal).
Though I can't exactly call the plaid skirt, button down and tie a look I exactly love for a day to day basis  (especially when uniform's aren't required) there are parts of the "school girl" look that I have been most definitely loving recently. Though I'm not quite looking forward to heading back to school, I do love the end of August because that's when I get to begin my back to school shopping. And there's few things I like more then shopping! Here are some of my favorite "school girl" inspired pieces ....  
         Whether they're for carrying your books or a substitute for your purse, I love these Rag & Bone backpacks, pictured above in Black and Olive. A definite favorite. I think of ordering the olive one tonight, my only concern is the size .. A little small for the million textbooks I need to tote around (ugh!). 


An instant update for any outfit, a necessity for any upper east-side school girl - I'm crushing hard on this Theyskens' Theory jacket. I love the classic front paired with the unexpected back. Plus, I think  the back really complements a button-up silky shirt. I love the shape it gives to it! (P.S - Currently 30% off on shopbop, hurry hurry hurry!!).
In true school girl fashion, I'm absolutely obsessed with these Leopard print Schutz Amanda Oxford's. I can just imagine the perfect outfit to go with. I'm a huge fan of an all black outfit and a leopard accent so to me a black dress, leather jacket, tights and these shoes would be a perfect fall/winter dinner with the girls outfit. Am I right or am I right? 

Hope you all are having a lovely week. I'm sorry this post is a little over-due, as much I would like to say I've been busy, I've really just been relaxing a took a bit of a break from the computer (and got glued to the TV instead...).
