Back to School Cool & Colorful Gear Upgrades

by Contributor Ariel Garneau for PMQforTWO

You are heading back to school! Ok maybe not, but the kids are going back to school, and you're heading to work, but there’s no reason your work gear can’t get an adorable and colorful upgrade. As Tom Hank’s character says in You’ve Got Mail “I would send you a bouquet of sharpened pencils” and that’s exactly what you’re doing for yourself here.

How can you upgrade existing office supplies?

This one is pretty simple, and there’s no need for a tutorial. Just add pom poms and tassels to everything! Paper clips? Sweet, add some  mini poms, and you’ll never lose those important papers in a stack again.

Add the  horse hair tassel to your tote bag, and you’ve got some extra swag walking into the office each morning.

Looking to up your lunchtime thermos situation? Who said fall colored tassels and beads weren’t workplace appropriate? No one will “confuse” your italian roast for their folgers ever again.

Honestly, just have fun with it! Office supplies are extra cute this time of year because of all the back to school hooplah, so take full advantage to buy adorable little bee shaped erasers, and add pom poms of all sizes to everything.

P.s if you love the look of the painted tote, you can make your own by following // this DIY //
