Back to School: Office Accessories for the Kid at Heart

Back to school is just around the corner. I remember my favorite part of back to school was shopping for school supplies.  However, now that I am grown up, I don't get to walk around the store shopping as I hold my paper list and try to find the coolest folders, pens, backpack or lunch sack {insert pity party here}. 

Although we are all grown up and shopping for school is a thing of the past, that doesn't mean we have to abide by the adult laws of no supplies needed.  This is exactly why I have spent the past few days shopping around to find some of the coolest office and desk supplies that will fill your kid-at-heart void. 

Let's first start with Kate Spade.  I could do an entire blog on Kate Spade's awesome desk supplies!  From staplers, to folders, to little gold paperclips shaped like bows...Kate Spade has it all! You can check them all out here! 

I adore these "Kindness is Always in Fashion"  pencils from A Blissful Nest. Rebekah, the owner of ABN has the most adorable office accessories too! 

If you haven't heard of Emily Ley, you should seriously put visiting her website  on your list of things to do! One of my favorite things from her site, is the Emily Ley Simplified Planner. It's the Be-all and End-all of planners! Trust me on this one! The 2016 planner launches early September and I can't wait to order one! 

If you are on the hunt for some cool binders, then look no further. Russell+Hazel has exactly what you need! They have successfully turned the boring white traditional binder into a cool little binder with a kick-butt spine and a dry erase board inside! 

I'm a huge fan of Rifle Paper Co. I seriously could own everything on their website and still not have enough RPC! I especially love their notepads and calendars.  This weekly desk calendar is my favorite! 

Who said that the backpack was only for kids? It's making quite the comeback and I love this Toms Departure Pattern Weave Backpack

The Tipsy Writer Pen and Stand from Anthropologie is turned brass and maple and comes in two colors! It is a great addition for those who can never seem to find a pen. 

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you asked a complete stranger at a table next to you if they wanted to trade their yogurt for your PB&J? Yeah..me too. But seriously, who could say no if you were sporting this adorable BPA free, food-grade Silicone food bag. It comes in an assortment of colors and can even be microwaved when the top is open! You can grab a Food Bag by Compleat, on their website! 

I love this  "To Do" list pad by Rifle Paper Co. Add this to your desk accessories and those mundane chores all of a sudden don't seem so bad to write down!

Jonathan Adler designs some of the coolest curiosities. I love these Globo Boxes, which are polished brass, lined with turquoise velvet and a gem-esque lucite lid in a variety of colors. This is a great paper weight and yes...you can hide your jelly beans inside!

Pink + Gold

I'm sure by this time...you all know how much I adore Instagram.  It's my go-to when I want to get inspired by some very talented people.  I not only find inspiration every time I take a scroll, but I have also made some great friends or "insta-friends" with like minded creatives. 

One of my favorite things right now are styled photos of desk/office details, closets, and artwork.  I love the clean, crisp feel of a beautiful white background and those amazing pops of colors.  It makes me feel happy, and relaxed knowing that there is so much beauty in small details such as these.

Recently, I have been on a serious gold and pink kick.  I love the soft colors or pinks and peaches with that pop of sparkle!  Below are some of my favorite items with this lovely color combination.  Enjoy and have an inspiring day!
