Did you feel smarter going back to school with a stack of super sharp, brand new graphite pencils? We may have outgrown the days of Trapper Keepers and Five Star notebooks, but that doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in the fresh feeling that comes with bright and shiny new office supplies.

Is that chair comfortable for sitting all day? Or is it just for looks? I work from home so I’ve been looking for an office chair lately.
Grown up schooling definitely looks a lot better than my uni days schooling (when I still felt like a child haha!)
Great picks. Very chic and stylish. The chair looks a tad uncomfortable, but might suffice. Love your site by the way!
[…] Back-to-School Supplies for GrownupsGrab me some designer paper clips and a sinuous desk chair for good measure – Wit & Delight […]
Cool. I’m always looking for ways to brighten up a room, even if it is just pencil in a mug. Thanks for all of your ideas!
Regardless of age (or lack of school enrollment), I love the process of back to school supply shopping. These pieces are chic yet motivational and will kick on a new season perfectly.
Loving these picks! Especially a fan of the Poketo paper clips and the Warby frames. Girl knows design!
