For college students, I believe New Years comes second to new beginnings. Coming in first is the beginning of the school semester. Without further ado, here are some items and inspiration to help make this semester successful.
Oh Kale Yeah Tote >> West Elm // Thank you Tote >> BodegaPress via Etsy
Screen-printed, canvas tote bags are perfect for carrying books and notepads for those light course load days. The size matches a laptop case snuggly, and the canvas material makes the totes sturdy against your work. While West Elm's tote is the right kind of punny, Etsy's handmade bag adds the perfect twist to the common "thank you" bags.
Kate Spade Library Card Phone case >> Nordstrom
Nothing pairs better with internships and college like the iPhone. Kate Spade gets this and has created the perfect fit to the academic, digital lifestyle. With this fun play on a library card case, phone-addicted students may remember to actually, you know, use the magical place with books.
An Organized Desk
The key to success starts at the desk. At least, I like to think so. Get Buttoned Up has a useful tips to keeping your desk refreshed in 25 days. Pair those tips with the photo above for inspiration, and a clean, organized desk is sure to come.
Calendars >> Jasmine Dowling, Jillianastasia, Oh the Lovely Things
What better way to stay on track than some beautifully designed calendars? The best part is that they are free printables. Pick and choose which style fits you, and then get to plotting out the rest of your semester. It's a no-fail plan.
