When the weather turns from sweltering hot to pleasantly breezy, it means one thing — it’s back to school season. Even though you’re probably not in college anymore, the return of fall is a great reason to stock up on some office staples. We love a good notebook to scribble down thoughts in the morning, doodle when we need a brain break, or jot down notes during coffee meetings. Here are some of my favorite notebook picks for fall.

1. Appointed notebook in Hunter Green $24 at appntd.com
This is one of my favorite notebooks for writing or taking notes. The textured covers are not only aesthetically pleasing, but make these notebooks durable enough to withstand any tossing about in my tote bag. The gold foil on the cover is a lovely finishing touch.

2. Moglea painted notebook $24.99 on Amazon
Moglea is known for its arty, painterly designs and I love this abstract version.

3. Worthwhile moon-print notebook $16 on Worthwhile Paper
Maybe I’m still on a solar eclipse high, but these moon patterned notebooks are just the right balance of minimalistic and whimsical.

4. Leuchtturm1917 hardcover dot-grid journal in anthracite $19.95 on Amazon
Who doesn’t love a dot-grid notebook? Perfect for doodling or sketching.
