Dress Up Your Work Space

Shopping for school supplies was hands down my favorite part about going back to school. I didn't mind having to go back because that meant busting out the new pens and notebooks and starting fresh. So even though most of us aren't going back to school, I think our office spaces could use a refresh all the same! Working in an office environment it's easy to feel like our space doesn't have much character, but adding a few fun prints, new office supplies and even some fun stationary to leave notes for colleagues or yourself is all you need to feel like September is the start of a new working adventure for you


I've been doing a little back to school shopping and picking up some things for my desk to keep me feeling inspired and be productive. My friend Jackie purchased some fun Lilly Office products that I can't wait to start using! 

//Saving money will be worth it when I'm drinking my coffee & tea out of this cute mug
// I think we all know I have a thing with pens, but these cute bando sweet talk pens give my notes an extra flare
//I can't even tell you how great it is to see the entire week in note form with this Lilly organizer. I've actually been using it as more of a blogging editorial calendar for the week to stay ahead of the game. 
// I have a thing for folders and these are seriously too cute - I have similar ones with flamingos that I found at TJ Maxx! The brand is Robee and you can find all their stuff on Amazon too! 
// I'm all about sticky notes - for my planner, for my computer screen and just to have on hand to remind myself and of course these Lilly ones are the cutest! I can't wait to start using mine! 
// Self proclaimed stationary and notebook hoarder over here - so these poppin medley of soft cover notebooks is right up my alley! Think of the possibilities - a different color for every project!! 
So many supplies, so little time!! 

What are some office supplies you just have to have?

  38. Ahhh I also have a thing for office supplies, and especially "good" pens! Love these. I checked out a Lilly planner last week, but decided I'm just too neurotic to buy one premade. Husband asked me what was "wrong" with it, and I proceeded to point everything out. Leading to a super weird look from him, and me reminding him that he, in fact, married me!! --Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1

  39. Yesss, any excuse to buy new office supplies! I love the little to-do sticky notes you have and I would never complain about anything in the Kate Spade collection, everything is so cute!

  44. I am ALL about "back to school." I totally treat myself to a new planner and pens every August/September. They send the kids supplies to schools pre-packaged so I don't even get to live vicariously through Avery!

  51. I totally walked around the school supply aisles of Target when they were first set up wishing that I had some use for all the pretty things. I am going to be honest, my cube is super boring. I only have one decorative thing on my desk and it is my pen holder lol. Oh and my dog calendar on the wall. I didn't even bother to bring picture frames or anything in and I have been here for two years. Perhaps I need to get on sprucing it up!

  74. I LOVE all of these! Seriously. Will your work reimburse you for these? My former employer had a "supply room" that we had to go to to get our desk stuff/office supplies. It was all ugly and cheap! Because they had that, they wouldn't reimburse us. It was lame.

    But now that I buy and write off my blog supplies, I'm totally getting some of these! I hope these are affiliate links for you, m'dear.

  77. Is this your workspace at home or at work? Mine at work is very neutral and muted, but at home it's loud and has all sorts of things all over it (usually stuff relating to birthday cards, planners, magnetic white board to hold things up).
