For some of you, you’ll be headed back to school this month and next. You’ll be shopping for school supplies, stocking up on dorm room goodies and making sure you’re ready for all-nighters just ahead. I am severely jealous. I miss the month of August when I would go shopping with my mother and buy everything from sharpened no. 2 pencils to three ring binders. So you can imagine that upon discovering Modcloth’s No. 2 pencil socks, I was taken straight back in time. It’s the little things that throw you back in time. And yes, I purchased these immediately. I might not be wearing them out and about as Modcloth have styled. But as I sit down to work on September 1st, I’ll pretend it’s my own “back to school” moment, as I glance down at my no. 2 socks instead of pencils. Hey, it’s the school of life, right?
