Mini Back to School Haul (Clothes + Stationery) Part 1??

Finally another post!

I'm uploading this later than I mean to :(. A lot of people have already gone back to school, so sorry this is so late! I haven't had time to go back to school shopping because I sprained my ankle and can't walk around! And when I finally thought it was ok to go to the mall, I ended up of coming back with a ankle worse than before! But on the bright side, I bought some clothes hehehe. (I do feel kinda bad that I bought more clothes because I already have so much clothes already and a lot of it I don't even wear.) I'm not sure if I will get to do more back to school shopping hence in the title, "part 1???" Also sorry for the variation in lighting if that drives you crazy!

Let's start with the clothes from Urban Outfitters! They had a 30% off sale for all sale items so I had to take advantage of what the fashion gods were offering me.

First is this BDG sleeveless flannel stripped top. I loved this color because it's very soft, and light blue and white= love. The sleeves are also slightly distressed which gives it a more laid-back look. I chose to tie the front because I think it's cuter that way but you don't have to if you choose not too. This shirt is also good to layer under a sweater or crewneck sweatshirt so the collar peaks out for some added cuteness and not to mention, warmness.

I also bought these BDG mid-rise Ashley shorts that are on the darker side and has some distressed holes in them. They actually come mid-thigh but I decided to roll it up a bit because I didn't think it looks as nice since the jeans are mid-rise. This means the waistband comes to just below my belly button. I think these look great if you pair it up with a t-shirt and tuck in the front. 

Who doesn't love it when your boyfriend lends you his shirt or jacket and it's just so oversized but looks totally cute on you? Cause I certainly love it!!! (but I don't have a boyfriend LOL) So this shirt is actually a guy's shirt that I found! Who says girls can't wear guy clothes? This shirt doesn't look as good when I button and zipper it but when it's left unbuttoned and unzippered, it's the cutest thing ever. Literally. It really looks like I'm wearing my (non-existent) boyfriend's shirt that he let me borrow and it's surprisingly soft and warm. I imagine I will wear it with a white tee, some black skinny jeans, black combat boots, and tie my hair in a lose and slightly messy high bun. When it gets colder I'll wrap a scarf around and wear a beanie. My lighting kinda washed out the color but it's army green which is totally in for the fall season! 
Side story: The guy at the cashier totally loved this shirt but then I told him it was for me and was totally cool about it. He said I'd look cute and cool in it xD. Thank you cute cashier guy with your adorable Australian accent.

Ok now let's move onto the other clothing stores. I only got one thing from each store.

From Forever 21:

Somehow this is my first floral print anything as well as my first skater skirt. I'm kinda late for both trends but better late than never! I love the fit of skater skirts~ It looks really cute if you pair it up with a white sweater and some black oxfords.

From H&M:

So I bought this plain grey crewneck because I plan on DIY-ing it! What am I going to do? Good question, you'll find out later~ It's not going to be anything great though, I just hope it comes out right!

(Saved my favorite for last!)
From Maybee:

Polka dots, a ribbon, chiffon, and only $8! Can you see why it was my favorite item I bought? No need for further explanation.

Now it's time for stationery!!! Who doesn't love cute little Asian stationery? All of these are from a store in Hmart that sells all of these cute goodies. I die in there every time I go there.

Molang <333333333 I have a thing for writing with lead pencils instead of regular pencils. This kid in my class broke all of my favorite lead pencils during school last year so I had to restock :'( That meanie.

GEL PENS <33333333 And the fact that they come in such cute designs makes everything a hundred times better! I believe I saw these on tumblr and then when I saw these at the store in Hmart I was so happy~ Each pen comes in a different color and is indicated on the cap clip thing. It's so cute because it'll say the color and then say "happy day" after it. For example, the first pen on the left says "Dark blue- happy day". Hahaha I just thought it was cute. The pens also came in this fancy-butt case as shown in the picture. On the back of it, it also has a list of all of the colors I feel like it's too good for me to own. 

The last item:

So this is a planner or a photo scheduler as they makers like to call it. Basically in every page there is a photo. For some reason, looking at this planner just makes me feel so calm. I don't know if it's because of the color, or the photos, or the quote that makes me feel so calm. It's kinda big and chunky for a planner but it's made of really good material. It's also has 4 sections:

Section 1

I don't really know what this section is for, but I'm thinking it's to track your income. The top row are the months and the rows going down are the days from 1-31. 

Section 2

So this is basically an overview of your month plans. This planner is really efficient because you can pick the month (top left corner) and then you just fill in the dates in the calendar. In this section I'll write when I have my tests, when projects are due, and other important events.

Section 3

This section is your weekly overview. This is where I'll be writing my homework and etc. Like section 2, you pick your month (top right hand corner this time) and fill in your dates.

Section 4

Section 4 is just lined paper where I can write notes. I tend to like to write formulas in my planner for a quick reference and so I don't have to lug my binder home with me.

And lastly, we cannot forget that beautiful quote on the front of the planner.

"Happiness is not a matter of good fortune or worldly possessions. It's a mental attitude. It comes from appreciating what we have, instead of being miserable about what we don't have. It's so simple, yet so hard for the human mind to comprehend." 

A reason I bought this planner is because of this quote. (Time for serious time.) I can get really down in school due to stress, tests, homework, projects, etc. But by looking at this quote I can be reminded to be glad that I am fortunate enough to afford an education where I can learn such amazing things and meet wonderful people instead of being sad because of school. This quote doesn't only apply to school though, but for practically everything. Little things like having access to running water, electricity, and other small things that we take too much for granted.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
