Only one word can describe how I feel about the LeSportsac fall collection: obsessed.
This collection is a masterpiece – I raved about the summer prints, but I’m a sucker for all things Fall, so it comes as no surprise at all that this collection is yet another love of mine.
As a college student, I completely underestimated the need of a good backpack. I brought my black LeSportsac one with me, but thought I’d use a tote bag more so than a backpack – I was completely wrong. Not only is it the best way to carry all of my stuff (including one or two heavy textbooks) to the somewhat far library, it is also stylish. Having two options (the plain black and the plaid) is a fun way for me to switch things up while still being able to maintain the functionality I need.
The set-up of the backpack is perfect for me – there is a big space for my laptop, books, notebooks, etc. and three mesh pockets – typically I use the two smaller ones for a water bottle and some on-the-go snacks, with the big pocket housing another LeSportsac case with my technology cables (which I’ll get too shortly!). I also love the outside zippered pocket, where I always store my sunglasses and hand sanitizer for extremely easy access.
My library, unfortunately, does not make for a great background, but at least the bland walls let the oxblood color shine – seriously guys – this backpack is everything. The maroon color is so big for this season (honestly, when isn’t it?!) and I love how it adds a pop of color to my otherwise typical gray, navy, or black outfits (I may have gone to college, but some things never change).
I’ve also utilized some of the smaller items in a way that suits my exact college needs, particularly to organize pens and cords. I’m a little (a lot) OCD about things and keeping it together makes it easy to grab and go whenever I make a quick decision to head off to the library.
The LeSportsac Kevyn is my new go-to – I think it’s spoiled all other “pencil” pouches I could ever use. The great thing about this product is that it has two main pockets, one of which is a catch-all, while the other has two mesh pockets. I keep my sticky tabs in one so I always know where to find them, and my go-to pens in the other (always so easy to find, especially if I’m trying to color code in a pinch!).
Lastly, I use a XL rectangular cosmetic bag to store all my tech essentials – frankly, I think every college student needs a pouch like this to make sure they never run out of battery. I typically always have my laptop charger, phone charger, adapter, headphones, and mophie in this case – and with the interior pockets, everything stays organized and untangled.
There’s also a mini version of this XL rectangular case – simply just the rectangular cosmetic that is great if you want to scale down what you are taking with you, or even want to make your own mini to go kit.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – LeSportsac can do no wrong in my eyes! Their products have been a lifesaver since coming to college, and I am so thankful that they continue to push design boundaries while maintaining their classic look and consistent functionality.
I, for one, cannot wait to see what they do next! And be on the look out for more LeSportsac featured in other posts – including perhaps a throwback to the summer and obviously more fall and college themed content.
September ends soon – treat yourself to some new Fall themed products for the beginning of October!
