Loyal Army

This San Francisco-based line is all about cuteness. Like fluffy puppies and cotton candy! With tees that advocate saving the Earth and adorable tote bags, there’s no end to the styling opportunities for the semester.

The price is nice, as nothing is over about $50. My favorites are the BonBon CarryAll ($24), the Pencil Pencil case ($6.50) and the Men’s Hot Mess Tee ($21.50). Adorable and affordable … how can you go wrong? loyalarmy.com
