Quirky-Cool Back to School Buys

The best part about going back to school is picking out the stuff that you'll go back with. Here, some ideas. Natural Markers, Clementine Art ($5.99, shown). This set of four vibrant colors is made with plant and mineral pigments, so you're completely eco-friendly when you doodle all over your notebook.

The Perfect Notebooks, ecosystem ($10-20). Build your own notebook in one of six standout hues, and choose the style (advisor, architect, artist or author), cover (hard or soft) and size (S, M, L) too. Did we mention they're made of 100% post-consumer recycled material. Cuz they are.

Ponytail Love, Jack and Jane ($4.50). You know every day won't be a good hair day. Snag these cute ponytail holders, just in case.

Pretty Rabbit Canvas Tote, Forever 21 ($9.80). Fully lined with a magnetic closure, you can totally sub this in for a backpack on light book days, if you have those. (Also, this one's probably a little too disposable for school, but it's adorable -- and $1.50: The Owl You Need is Love Tote!)

PS-I can't resist one more tote recommendation. Remember these beauties?
