I've been working for Tory Burch since May 2014, and in that time I have developed an unhealthy obsession with all things Tory. People have called me a walking advertisement because I'm covered head-to-toe in the iconic double T logo on a daily basis. I like to think that my Tory collection is so vast because when you spend every day selling shoes and handbags to clients, you start to want those shoes and handbags for yourself! Today is my last day at my store for the summer, and I'm going to miss it so much! I'm already so excited to come back this winter!! Before going back to school, I obviously had to do my annual back to school Tory Burch shop! Here are some of my favorite must-haves for this upcoming semester.
Look at these gorgeous colors! I'm in LOVE!!! This fall, Tory Burch is showing a lot of purple, pink, brown, and, of course, gold.
I love this Marion Quilted Patent iPhone 6 Case. This gorgeous blush color is called "light oak" and it is one of my favorite shades from Tory's collection. An iPhone case always makes a great gift, and this one is so unique because the iconic logo is sewn into the leather. It is such an adorable phone case, and it's perfect for a Tory fan!
I adore cat-eye sunglasses!! Shopping for shades is NOT easy, and some frame shapes are really a hit-or-miss (I cannot wear aviators to save my life!) But I've found that cat-eyes look good on almost everyone! This particular pair of Geo Cat-Eye Sunglasses is fantastic for the fall. I'm in love with this burgundy color; it's so in this season!
So I got my iPhone 6 when it came out this past fall, and until 2 weeks ago, I was unable to find a wristlet that fits the huge phone! Tory just came out with this Britten Smartphone Wristlet, and it is made to fit the iPhone 6! It has 6 credit card slots, 2 bill pockets, a zipper pocket for coins (or, if you're like me, lip gloss), and a wristlet strap! My favorite thing about this wristlet is that it is made of pebbled leather. It's so soft and beautiful!!
Okay, I cannot stress this enough: this rollerball is a MUST!!! I am not a perfume person; I get a headache any time I try to smell a fragrance. But Tory's fragrance does not bother me AT ALL. In fact, the scent is so light and fantastic! She sells the perfume in traditional spray bottles, but I like the rollerball because it's more convenient! It fits in all of my bags and it lasts about 3 months! (PS: 50% of the purchase price for this product is donated to the Tory Burch Foundation!)
By now, everyone is familiar with Fitbit. I wrote a very detailed review on my Fitbit Flex last summer, about a week after Tory Burch announced her line of Fitbit accessories. This Double-Wrap Fitbit Flex Bracelet is the newest addition to that collection! You'll definitely want to be sporting a Fitbit while walking to and from class, so why not do it in style? This bracelet comes in four gorgeous colors (black, tan, light oak, and grey). The tan color is my personal favorite.
Last year, I discovered that networking is a MAJOR part of college. I also discovered that I did not know the meaning of the term "business casual." So, I was the girl who showed up to the job fair in a little black dress and Louboutins. It was... embarrassing. This summer, I put together a wardrobe that is perfect for any business meeting, interview, or internship! When I came across these Raleigh Pumps, I knew they were the "business casual" shoes I had been looking for. At the beginning of the summer, I purchased them in black, but I was so in love with them that I decided to buy them in nude as well! These shoes are surprisingly comfy, and the low heel is great for all professional situations! Next time I go to a job fair in these cute shoes, I'll look more like a potential intern and less like a Bar Mitzvah guest.
I adore this gorgeous little Turn-Lock Leather Bracelet. It's small and simple, but it makes a great addition to any wrist! Plus, this deep shade of purple is so in for the fall!
Last year, Tory Burch introduced a line of lipsticks, and I've been obsessed ever since. I'm pretty apathetic when it comes to makeup, so I was initially drawn to these lipsticks by their funky packaging. The first color I tried was Ramble on Rose, and I fell in love! I really love Tory's lipsticks because they are much lighter than typical lipsticks. They aren't very long lasting, but they add just enough color to brighten your natural lip! I just purchased a shade called Pas Du Tout; my mother has been wearing it for a while and she loves it, so I am looking forward to trying it.
What better way to store your new lipstick than in a Tory Burch Cosmetic Case!? I love these makeup bags because the patterns are always so fun. It's a great size for a travel makeup bag when you're away from home at college!
These Lennon Slip-on Sneakers are probably my favorite purchase from my latest shopping spree. They are insanely comfortable, and this color matches EVERYTHING!! I also love how the logo is really discreet on this shoe. They look cute with skirts, jeans, and everything in between! I'm so excited to wear these shoes while giving campus tours this semester.
No fall wardrobe is complete without the perfect riding boot. Tory Burch has a really nice selection of boots this year, but my mother and I really fell in love with these Derby Riding Boots. My mother purchased them in brown, and I purchased them in black. We immediately gravitated to these boots because we were intrigued by the smooth leather. Another great feature on these boots is the ankle strap; this separation between the leg and the foot creates a slimming effect! These boots make the perfect finishing touch to any fall outfit!
Tory's watch line is relatively new, and I'm so excited about the new styles for the fall! This sixties-inspired Amelia Watch is definitely my favorite! It's small and delicate, which is great if you have tiny wrists like me! I also love the unique design. It is so much prettier than an average watch. All of Tory's watches are Swiss-made, and if you are in the market for a new timepiece, I suggest checking them out!
I could not go back to college without the perfect everyday tote, so I was thrilled when this nylon tote bag arrived at the store! Named after Tory's alma mater, this Penn Tote is a very practical choice for college students. It's large enough to fit a laptop, some notebooks, and even a textbook! It has a zipper closure, so you'll never have to worry about your belongings tumbling out! It also has extra padding on the straps, so your shoulder will feel very cushioned while you're lugging your tote around campus! This tote also comes in black, but I prefer this deep red color (to be honest, the black color looks like a baby bag. The red is MUCH more stylish!). I can't wait to get back to school so I can start wearing my new tote!!
This Crewneck Dress is my favorite dress from Tory's fall collection. I saw it in person the other day, and it was just stunning! The drop waist gives it a unique silhouette that flatters all body types. It's also a stunning pattern, and these colors can be worn well in to winter. I love the retro look of these Bond Booties, but I'd also recommend wearing this dress with a simple pair of flats. As the weather gets colder, you can also pair this dress with high socks and riding boots! It's great if you're in the mood to dress up for class!
I've been obsessed with plaid skirts ever since I first saw Clueless, and this Plaid Side-Pocket Skirt is a must-have for the fall! It's so preppy, and the warm colors give it a vintage feel. I love this skirt paired with the Stretch Jacquard Asymmetrical Zip Jacket. This jacket defies the "no white after Labor Day" rule. Not only is it great for the fall, but also it can be worn all throughout the year, and even into next summer! Left unzipped, this jacket has a very chic yet edgy vibe!
I'm so in love with my new Tory Burch merchandise! I'm really looking forward to wearing all of my new items, and I can't wait to be back at Tory this holiday season!
