Things I ♥ – Back to College Edition

So there are always tons of back to school list of what you need when leaving for college. Unfortunately those list are great for the basics but always fail to mention things that are very practical and necessary once you get to college. Now some of these things you may not need if you go to a small school like I did as a undergrad, but are needed when you go to a much larger school or are a commuter. So here is my Things I ♥ – Back to College Edition!

 Get Rain Boots before the start of college. Or you can be like me and suffer through what seemed to be two weeks straight of rain without a pair.

Rainboots. A stylish pair of rainboots will come in handy every rainy day during college ( which is alot up here in the mountains for me)

Check out this list of stylish rain boots for college.Add a umbrella to your must have for going to college. The bubble types help keep you dryer then some of the other ones. Which is always a plus when you want to stay looking your best, even on rainy days!

A Backpack… Now even though most girls (including myself) prefer a tote, a backpack will save yourself when you have super long days and have to carry around a laptop, books, and notebooks. My advice get a stylish one that will hold all of your stuff and has some support ( That made me sound like a old lady). Here are some options.

Are you seeing a theme with things you need. Rain is something that most people didn’t have to deal with in high school to get to classes, which is probably why you don’t come as prepared for it in college. This cute and easy pull over rain jacket is the perfect addition for your wardrobe and will keep you dry!

Last on my list is reliable drinkware to help you get through your 8am Calculus classes with some coffee or to get rehydrated after a late Thursday night with some water. Plus these are also great for any type of drink you may have on your days off in college !
