When I started my first semester of college this year I came prepared. I brought my Justin Bieber phone case and pink Victoria’s Secret planner with me to add a little fun to potentially droll study sessions. Cute accessories like these might make slugging through that essay on British literature or quantitative research a little more bearable. It’s the small details that count.
This year, opt for floral backpacks, glitter pens and neon notebooks.
Here are some of my faves:
Tribal Lace Backpack, Polyvore, $47
Justin Bieber Phone Case, Cellairis, $28
