Back to Hogwarts Tag

Since I'm no longer a student, I tend to give most back-to-school content on the internet nothing more than a sideways glance - unless it's an advertisement for the backpack sale at Hot Topic of course ;) But when I came across this tag created by Michelle Anneliese, the creator of A Geek Girl's Guide, it reminded me of a simpler time when I used to look forward to the beginning of each school year - I'd figure out my first-day outfit usually a week in advance, I'd take pleasure in organising my backpack, and all the while I was waiting, like everyone else, for my damn Hogwarts letter to arrive!!!

This tag has given me the chance to imagine what it would actually be like to be a Hogwarts student, from favourite hang-out spots in the castle to what my go-to shops in Hogsmede might be. Figuring out the answers to these questions has brought me the closest to that start of school feeling since I completed my final year of university. So I hope you all enjoy, and I hope this post will inspire others to participate as well 🌟

Have to go shopping in Diagon Alley! What store do you go to first?

My favourite part of back-to-school shopping has always been the clothes! Guess that means Madam Malkin's Robes For All Occasions would be my first stop. But one of the many bookshops wouldn't be that far behind.
