The end of summer is always a bittersweet time. The new school year brings new opportunities and new restrictions that can serve as a stark contrast to the seemingly limitless freedoms of the summer. One way to add a little extra excitement to the first days of school is to have the perfect supplies to express your unique qualities and interests. So, if you or a student in your life are heading back to school, consider these personality based school supply aesthetics. I’ve hand picked a few items that perfectly fit each category and I’ve included Amazon links for your convenience.
Aesthetic #1: Cute
When I was a college student, this was my go-to. I couldn’t resist pastel school supplies or anything with animal ears attached to it. Here are some of my absolute favorite items! Just looking at them again makes me miss being a student. #nostalgia
