It seems way too early to be thinking about going back to campus (though some of us have never left — uh, yay summer classes?), but since the stores have started stocking up, we couldn’t resist doing a little early shopping. Based on what’s hitting store shelves, it seems there’s never been a better time to wear your love of pizza on your sleeve. Or on your backpack.
These items are somewhere between awesome and absurd, but one thing’s for sure: They’re definite conversation starters.
Because you might as well start saving now. “Brunch Money” bag, $12; Gypsy Warrior
Because it reminds you of summertime. You know, those glory days when exams weren’t a thing. (Unless you took summer classes, in which case, sorry.) Victoria’s Secret PINK Popsicle Phone Case for the Samsung Galaxy series, $3; Amazon OR the version for the iPhone 6, $3; Amazon
Because you already spend that econ lecture daydreaming about pizza, so you might as well have something delicious to stare at while you do it. JanSport Pizza Backpack, $35; Target.com
Because you deserve a good laugh every now and then, and this is way better than that generic Animal House poster everyone else has. Or “Keep Calm and…” anything. “How Donuts Get Sprinkles” Print, $15; Amazon
Because your roommate needs to know that she can’t be all Miss Mary Sunshine before you’ve had at least a cup and a half. “But First, Coffee” Pillow, $29; Dormify.com
Because all of your money that isn’t going toward brunch is going toward ice cream anyway, right? “Soft Serve You Well” Purse, $40; ModCloth
Because it’s hard to have a bad day when you’ve got these cheery, pineapple-speckled kicks on. Champion Picnic Pineapple Sneakers, $30; Keds
Because you need something comfortable to lounge on while…studying. Pizza Pool Float, $12; Amazon
