WHAT TO WEAR: Day To Night

It seems like in college, everyone has a busy schedule. When I was in high school, I remember other students telling me that they were so busy with school work so they didn’t have time to watch TV. This seemed absolutely crazy to me; how could they miss out on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? But now, I feel their pain. I’m sure many people feel this way, but my work load in high school was nothing compared to how it is now as a junior in college. With balancing work, school, friends, family and a relationship, sometimes it’s hard to find a few moments to relax. In fact, it was so difficult on Tuesday that I missed the dramatic RHOBH reunion special part one (the 17 year-old Kelsey Baska would be devastated). So on crazy days when I’m scheduled back to back with school, work and events, I try to wear an outfit that can easily go from day to night.

I go back to basics when I’m at a loss on what to wear. If I’m looking for an easily transitional outfit, I stick with neutral colors and uncomplicated silhouettes. A plain T-shirt and jeans is always a great combo to start with because it’s simple and you can dress it up or down with a quick change of accessories. This Fashionisto paired a red button-up shirt with classic blue denim jeans for a look that was casual yet put together. For accessories he wore black sunglasses and a pair of Clarks desert boots. I love a guy in Clarks. They’re such a classic shoe, and they always give off that “I just finished up my business presentation at work and now I’m on my way to my cool loft downtown before I grab sushi for dinner” vibe. He cuffed the bottom of his jeans for added detail, allowing his Clarks to be more visible. Wearing cool shoes is an easy way to add interest to an outfit; it’s my go-to trick if I’m in a hurry and feel like my outfit is too blah. To complete the look, he pulled his hair back from his face into a subtle man bun. Overall, his outfit could easily transition from a full day of classes to a night of shooting pool with the guys.

One Simple Change: Lose the man bun and switch out the blue jeans for a pair of tailored pants and you’re ready for your internship.
