    It’s that time of year again!

    As September approaches, it’s time to start getting ready for back-to-school (or for others, back-to-work). Sure, the end of summer may seem bleak to some, but we like to think of September as a fresh start: one that comes with a burst of renewed energy, focus and purpose.

    Whether you’re preparing your little one for the classroom, heading off to college or simply wanting to elevate your work wardrobe, here are some back-to-school and back-to-work essentials to make the transition to September a breeze.

    Big Bag Energy

    Back-to-school and the fall season wouldn’t feel complete without a new bag. Though microbags are still going strong trend-wise, XL picks and chic carryalls are making a comeback and they’re the perfect pick for carrying all your essentials to work and school. And let’s not forget about the beloved backpack—with various styles and sizes to choose from, it’s fitting for both students and workers alike.

    As seasons change, so should your skincare. With cooler temperatures around the corner, now’s the time to update your skin routine accordingly. Try switching out your lightweight summer moisturizers for something thicker and more hydrating and add in a Vitamin C serum to help repair any summer skin damage. And don’t forget to continue using SPF!

    Litter-Free Lunches

    Litter-free lunches have never been easier—from bento boxes and lunch bags to water bottles and multi-use cutlery, there are a plethora of options to suit any style.
