back to school shopping

Hello there! Sorry it's been so long, I've been away in Colorado backpacking, biking, etc.... but I'm home, and finally sixteen! To celebrate my birthday, my mom treated me to a shopping spree in the city. We had so much fun walking around and splurging on back to school necessities (hopefully my dad doesn't see the credit card bills!) I came out with a ton of great basics and knits - trends I noticed in most of the stores included animal prints (especially cheetah/leopard), black/white/grey/navy, light pinks, romantic styles, rose appliques, and pencil skirts. What trends have you come upon while shopping for the upcoming season?
