Choose Your Karma & Head Back to School with Sakroots Flap Backpack
I can't believe it; it just can't be true. Summer is almost over and it's actually that time of the year again. We are all counting down the last days of summer and getting things organized; soon school will be in session yet again.
Don't hate me for saying this, but I'm almost excited to go back to school this year; partially because I'm rocking an awesome back to school look and because I'm getting closer and closer to finally graduating (3 semesters left after this one, but no one's counting or anything). My back to school look this year is totally different than the past, I feel like I've finally "found myself" as far as fashion is concerned and that's a pretty exciting feeling.
I can't wait to share the outfit I'm going to wear for the first day of school, but for now I'll share what I wore when I attended an orientation earlier this week. I'm in love with this simple outfit and it's the perfect summertime get up, for everything from a BBQ to a quick back-to-school meeting.
On the afternoon of my orientation, I was walking into the building where the orientation was held with plenty of time to spare, but for some reason I decided to cut through the grass to get there quicker. That was a huge mistake, since it's been raining non-stop lately... Not only is the grass muddy, it's down right swampy. I managed to get mud all the way up the back of my legs, all over my nude colored sandals, and literally in between each and every one of my toes.
I was a hot mess, but luckily I was able to scrounge together a few tissues from my car to wipe off most of the mud and ended up attending my orientation barefoot... talk about making interesting first impressions with future classmates and professors.
Regardless of how silly I looked walking around campus barefoot, I'm obsessed with bright colors this season and loved my look with or without shoes. The fading, yet still bright purple hair, my neon yellow shorts, the cobalt blue tank top, and my brand new, gorgeous, bold printed backpack and planner from Sakroots; I'm obsessed with it all.
The best part of my outfit, is that all of my clothing came from a second hand store. Plus, my Sakroots accessories allow me to give back to a good cause. That means this outfit is a double whammy as far as "Karma" and giving back to my community are concerned. I love that you can stand out from the crowd while carrying a Sakroots bag (or rocking any of their fun accessories) and you can give back to a good cause on the same dime!
During check out you'll have the chance to donate to a charity, simply by supporting whichever one of the beautiful patterns you prefer. These patterns designed by artists (like myself) really make me so very happy and inspired every time I look at them and since they all help their own good cause, I think they are all just the bee's knees!
Do you realize this means that you can rock a new pair of rain boots, buy an adorable planer that you write all your assignments in, or even upgrade to a new, cooler backpack and just simply buying these products can change the world for the better? That's pretty cool, huh? Plus, Sakroots matches the amount you donate! So cool!
