Lazy August days by the beach followed by back to school ads at night, remind us that these precious moments should be savored as Fall is right around the corner.  The Accessories Council and Lyss Stern, founder and president of Divalysscious Moms, joined forces with tips and fun finds for the start of the new school year. Here are some of their top picks:
