My blazer isn't the only thing about my outfit that's new. My houndstooth tote from Target, which I also picked up over the summer, is a purchase that I waited to use until going back to school today. Practically speaking, the tote is nice and roomy, but more importantly, it's houndstooth and I'll buy almost anything that's houndstooth! It's also reversible, which might be more of a curse than a blessing, as I can envision myself frantically dumping all of my stuff out in order to reverse it to the yellow interior to match my outfit early in the morning on my way to work! Probably the most practical aspect of the bag is that it's pleather, so the dirt should wash right out, unlike with my white blazer!
