Welcome back to our first week of class! As I am hobbling around campus on my crutches, you are all looking fabulous in your new holiday presents (or from the money that you got returning the ugly sweater that your grandfather got for you). The first week back is always hectic. Figuring out where your classes are, who has the same free time to grab lunch, where to buy your books and, more importantly, what to wear are all the stressful encounters we have to face.
For the first week, I say retire those sweatpants that you’ve worn for the last three weeks at home lying in bed and dust off your riding boots and cute tops. This Fashionista, although freezing on this cold January day in Pittsburgh, perfectly planned to wear cute patterned tights along with her jean shorts and pink top. The most important part of surviving the winter here is finding the right jackets to wear and knowing how to wear them. Sixty-five degrees on Saturday when Monday was twenty degrees? Okay Mother Nature, you got us. Be sure to check the weather every morning before heading off to campus to be sure you won’t turn into Frosty, or worse—be the smelly, sweaty kid in class.
One Simple Change: To turn this outfit into a nighttime look, throw on a pair of black heels with a blazer to go from a casual daytime outfit to a flirty nighttime out on the town.
