When I was a kid, I’d always go through the Sears catalog in the weeks before school started, plotting my wish list for the upcoming school year. New clothes were always so transformative in my mind: “With this t-shirt, everything will change.” Of course, that was never the case; I was the same awkward, turtleneck-wearing dork in 7th grade that I was in 6th. However, the habit to assemble wish lists persists to this day (mostly because I haaaaaate summer and love fall jackets).
Though there’s no way I could afford all of these goodies, it’s so satisfying to put them together in a cohesive list. Animal print! Acid green! Leather! Bring on the new composition notebooks.
