Back to School - Hopscotching in Prada

It's that time of year....the dreaded end of summer.

I love every minute of summer. The BBQ's...cut-off jean shorts...flip flops (does this sound like a Jake Owen country song??)

But, there comes a time when the weather starts to cool, every target in town is overrun and out of stock and kids go back to school. And oh yes, the shopping.

Shopping for back to school was always a strategic time for me. I had a limited budget, and decisions had to be made on saving up money for a big purchase (hello LA Gear jacket), or applying my funds more evenly over all my clothing.

Now, as an adult, I still view the back to school time as an opportunity to reassess your wardrobe, and  put your money towards those necessary fall items.

One of the quintessential reminders of back to school are those black and white saddle shoes. Saddle shoes showed up in the U.S. in the post-war era, and with famous wearers such as Elvis and James Dean, they have been a reoccurring favorite.

I picked up these Prada saddle shoes during a spring sale, and have been waiting to bring them out all summer.

So, if you haven't already - go out and shop. And, if you haven't hopscotched in a while, I highly recommend it no matter your age!
