Back to School Style for Grown-Ups

For some, a fantasy back to school wardrobe may resemble the clothes worn by the cast of Pretty Little Liars--cocktail dresses, four-inch heels, etc. Our fantasy back to school wardrobe is, for the most part, equally out of reach for many teens, but a little more practical. Also, we haven't seen the inside of a school in years unless you count that Kate Young for Target prom party. But, who cares? Click through for some totally adorable school-inspired clothes and accessories we'd be snatching up if we were actually going back to school this fall. (Instead, we'll probably just buy the same stuff and wear it during fashion week.)
