London Fog black trench
Classic black industrial rain boots (a necessity in the Kingston rain storms)
My Monet umbrella (a sturdy handle is a must, considering the strength of the wind coming off Lake Ontario)
A Land's End tote (I prefer these over those of L.L. Bean because they contain plenty of pockets to keep all of my school necessities. ) I wish I could fill my tote with beach gear, but unfortunately it's full of books, binders, my laptop, and my frequently-refilled coffee tumbler.
A J. Crew cord blazer. A classic to accomplishing a put-together academic look, especially if paired with an oxford shirt, a v-neck sweater, and a pair of sperry's
Personalized coffee tumblers are a definite must. I refill mine at least 3 times a day during the school week to keep me awake and warm. Not to mention, these are far more environmentally-friendly than getting a new paper cup with every coffee purchase. This one from Frugal Frou Frou is simply perfect!
Unfortunately, it's also time to trade my favorite Ray-Bans wayfarer sunglasses for my D&G reading glasses. A necessity if I actually want to see anything in class.
And just for fun, I always tie my Lilly jubilee scarf on my tote, just to keep a little of the summer spirit in the colder months.
