Ahh, the days of morning bells, busy hallways, 45 lbs of books in your backpack and (sometimes questionable) cafeteria food are upon us. Time to hit the books, kids! While our own school days are long behind us now, we can remember one of our favorite parts of school being the ability to express ourselves through our everyday looks. “School isn’t a fashion show!” We know, mom.
