campus essentials

This time of year is so exciting– there is the renewed energy in work after a well-earned vacation, the last of the summer picnics, and students and teachers getting ready to fill their classrooms for another year of school. 

Some students might have dreaded that first day all summer long… but you know who doesn’t? College students!

Most college students can’t wait to be back on campus. The end of summer brings friends from across the country and time zones back into the same dorm for another year of adventure and community.

We are shopping for all of our back to campus essentials just in time for them to arrive before we pack the car for our trip back. Check out what’s on our campus essentials list, and let us know what’s on yours!

  1. A great bag.

No matter if you are going Greek, running for campus leadership positions or just trying to look your best in Junior Comp class, it’s imperative you have a stylish bag to go from class to class. This is personal preference, but I love Annabel Ingall, Rebecca Minkoff and Elizabeth and James. They are durable, classic and chic enough to last you all four years.annabel-ingall-black-isabella-large-tote-__59312.1469028784.600.800

2. A warm cardigan

Sure, it might be August now… but soon the chill of fall will be in the air. You need a reliable, comfy cardigan to keep you warm throughout the cooling nights. We love the LAMade piece because of it’s open front design and elongated angles, perfect for bundling up in cooler evenings.campus essentials

3. A chic LBD

One of our most-worn pieces in college was our litle black dress. Perfect for a night out, or interview-ready with a chic blazer, this piece always is stunning. We love the instantly slimming look of this Tee’s by Tina piece–it’s always flattering and streamlines your figure for a gorgeous silhouette. Plus, it’s durable, so you won’t have to replace it every semester with a disposable piece, saving you a ton of money down the line.

We can’t wait to be back on campus. What are you stuffing your suitcase with?
