Planner Season

It’s my favorite time of year. The time of year when some of my favorite companies start rolling out planners and agendas in anticipation of back to school time. Ah Planner Season. (That’s a thing right?) Anyway, nothing makes me happier than a brand new and ready to use agenda except for an already filled and completely scrapped one.

I am currently using the Bando 17 month planner which has one of my favorite prints to date. In a job where I do a lot of idle chit chat, this design has been a cute little icebreaker a number of time over. Each year, I try to do something and say something a little different with my planner. Since it’s a book that gets such heavy usage for me, I try to go for one that is not only cute but also sturdy and high quality. I really put the Bando planner through the ringer and it has held up even better than some of the more expensive planner I’ve had over the years. It’s a great price and I am also willing to pay a little bit extra for celebratory stickers. For some reason I am a sucker for stickers.

Here are my top picks for planners this season in a pretty decent range of prices, a few are even personalized. I apologize in advance because apparently all I care about this year is pink, gold and stripes. Happy hunting for your own planners.

Breton Stripes, Please

I’m head over heels in love with this Breton striped tee from J. Crew. It’s long sleeve which is perfect because I am always chilly and it refuses to stop raining here. The red and blue are just the right color to be fun and the white is (for once) not opaque.

I have been dressing it up and wearing it under the Super 120s suit from J. Crew with pumps but also dressing it down by swapping out the pants for easy white shorts and jeans.



The same day I wore this outfit it poured which showed just how versatile the shirt can be. I quickly swapped out the blazer and Birkenstocks for the trusty dusty Penfield and Hunter boots.




It was also a really cute 4th of July shirt because comes in short sleeves for you folks that don’t want to sweat to death.  I could not love this shirt any more than  I do. What’s the one piece in your closet that you just can’t live without?
