I hope everyone who started school this week (like me) is having a great start to the year! When my busy schedule starts up again after summer I tend to go for the most comfortable and time-saving options in everything I do. So tongiht I want to share my back to school essentials that help get me through the school year!
The Comfortable Casual Dresses
There is nothing I love more than a simple t-shirt dress. I mean think about it, they have so many pros! First of all: no pants (that's enough of a reason for me!). Second: it's like a pre-made outfit, no planning out which pants will look okay with which shirt. Just pick a cute pair of shoes and you're good! Third: You can dress them up or dress them down. Throw on a comfy cardigan (or don't) with converse on a casual day, or pair with a long necklace and heels for classes before a big night out! (The dresses pictured and currently out of stock so I will link some other favorite comfy dresses below!)
One of my most important essentials for school is a comfortable pair of shoes! Sure you sit in class a lot, but the long treks from class to class can really take a toll on your feet. (Especially if you're like me and have super high arches!) Plus there are so many adorable options to save your feet in style! I've been obsessing over my new Nikes from Famous Footwear. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, and pair well with leggings or distressed jeans!
When school starts so does the stress, and then comes the breakouts. The Milk Jelly Cleanser by Glossier has been my ultimate go to for fighting skin troubles for a few months ago and as school approaches it will definitely keep the top spot! If you have yet to try this cleanser I highly recommend picking a bottle up, also check out my in-depth review here!
Hitting the snooze button five times before I actually get out of bed really cuts into my makeup time. So on days I have no time to waste I reach for my Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation stick. The quick application allows me to speed through my makeup routine with ease! Plus it has a beautiful and buildable medium to full coverage finish to keep my sleepy skin looking wide awake.
Yes, I do have several planners sitting around that would probably last me until December. But when I saw this one I knew I would begin planning like no other! It's large size makes it perfect for planning out every aspect of your day, morning, afternoon and evening. Plus it's adorable! Pick up your own Happy Planner at Michaels.

Have a great Monday tomorrow!
