It’s that time of year, when the sky turns a few shades of grey and bawls with thick raindrops, swatting down leaves from yellowed trees on their descent. I blame Adele and that bloody song. (Will I get the two days of wistful sobbing back, ADELE, WILL I?) Mornings smell of firewood and wet leaves (a whiff of that gosh-darn PSL still lingers in the tube), uniformed teens swarm the bus-stops, kicking up a cloud of leaves with every gossip and gag, and something in the air commands that you buy a fresh pack of pencils.

It’s back to school time: golden afternoons that last a minute and a half, crazy/confusing few weeks when you crave homework, and a new backpack that go with your new haircut. Coach’s Mount Plaid collection takes me into the season with its nod back to the 90’s – back when ‘homework’ did not mean 10 hours of pixel-shifting while seasons of muffled South Park stream in the background. The quintessential academia silhouette comes in red-and-black workwear plaid – a la Kristen Stewart in American Ultra, with similar attitude and gusto. Best of all, UK.Coach.com is now a fully transactional e-commerce site, which means I can now completely eliminate human interaction over the gift-buying period (win).

Right now, my own Mount Plaid Turnlock Tie rucksack holds a host of camera equipment and notebooks filled with wireframe scribbles and client requests, and I have a feeling it’s going to take one strong coffee and sharp pencil to tackle this ‘homework’ in the next few weeks…

So, excuse me while I go sniff a fresh pack of crayons.

  1. I thought I was the only one who sniffs “a fresh pack of crayons”(safer than glue, right?). As I read book after book and article after article in order to find references for my midterm-exam essays (and obviously procrastinating… I blame your awesome blog for this, fyi) I think I would rather do 10 hours of pixel-shifting (if I knew how, of course). At least your awesome images provide me with a colorful break from my black-and-white academic prison. <3

  2. In the second outfit I could overcome the fact that winter time is almost here.

  8. Red is so energizing, even though I don’t wear it myself (just doesn’t look good on my skin tone). But I like seeing it on others, it’s so vibrant! Can’t say I miss homework, to be honest. Crayons and colored pencils on the other hand, I still need to buy those to make good on my promise (to myself, tee hee) of starting to draw again – thanks for the reminder :-)
    Have a fun weekend, Shini, take it easy with them pixels!
