I have heard the phrase, "back to school" so many times this week that it's almost making me wish I was going back to school.  The thought of new teachers, new peers, new clothes and that smell of school - it all makes me feel a little nostalgic.  I spoke with my 11-year-old niece after her first day of middle school and boy did she have a lot to report.  She already has 4 new friends!  Also, she learned her lesson early on for which side of the hall to walk on...oh 8th graders, must you be so strict with the 6th graders?  

This week's Friday's Fancies is all about back-to-school fashion.  I couldn't help myself with this one...seriously, getting new clothes for school was so exhilarating for me.  New notebooks and other supplies? Sign me up!  What can I say, I'm still a nerd at heart.  

What's everyone up to this weekend?  We don't have much in store and that's fine with me.  Maybe we'll even tackle some projects...

Be sure to head over to {long distance loving} for other back-to-school fashion and to 'like' my round-up.  Have a great weekend!

Lovely outfit you put together! Particularly liking the glasses. I lost my prescription glasses that look quite similar, last week. Im blind as a bat now. ha!

Oh, and my word verification word for this comment was Rediando. Sounds like it could be a Harry Potter spell.

Ahh yes, the sounds of bells, slamming locker doors, and shuffling feet in a hallway. It takes me back. I too am feeling a bit nostalgic about the back 2 school season. I'll living through my two younger sisters in the 8th and 10th grade this year.

I am back in school! I've been searching for a good backpack that won't look totally junior high--too bad I can't afford that one! Oh well, Friday's Fancies is about dreaming, isn't it? Have a great weekend!
