I have a theory that all of my professors got together and planned to make all their papers and finals due at the same time. I don’t know about you all, but I major in procrastination with a minor in b.s.-ing—I have had this motto since high school. As soon as I came to college, though, I realized that everyone is a lot smarter than I am, and that they actually leap into the library daily in order to ace their classes. To follow suit, I plan to end my freshman year with a bang by doing so well on all of my final exams that my professors will worship me….Oh, who am I kidding? I have a class full of Einsteins, for goodness sake.
Professors: I am trying really hard, so if you want to give me extra credit for the effort, I really won’t mind at all.
With all this work to think about, I am becoming one of those people that dons the lazy attire instead of dressing up for no apparent reason (besides to show off to everyone, of course). I have realized, though, that I can incorporate high fashion into apathetic attire.
Boyfriend jeans are the way to go; they are big and comfy, and look absolutely fabulous. Honestly, all you need is a plain T-shirt or tank top of any color to go with them. Levis or Gap are your best bets (even though Ryan Gosling once told me to be better than the Gap). Don’t have boyfriend jeans? Steal a pair from your boyfriend. Don’t have a boyfriend? Steal one from your friend. Don’t have friends? Then I’m sorry, but you’re out of luck.
You can’t get any lazier than a maxi dress. With only one item, your biggest and only challenge in dressing yourself is to slip the maxi dress on; you can’t go wrong. Come on people, even Lindsay Lohan looks good in one, and she’s all kinds of crazy. Truth be told, however, I have a hard time finding maxi dresses. I’ve only had luck finding them at Forever 21.
Last but not least, LEGGINGS! They are very comfortable and quite fashion-forward these days. An oversized T-shirt or sweater works amazingly with them. I always picture a woman power-walking in her jean jacket, t-shirt, and leggings with an oversized bag slung over one shoulder and a Starbucks coffee in hand (don’t ask me why, though, because I have no answers. I think that after reading all of my other blog posts, you should have concluded that I’m a little weird).
I get most of my leggings from Uniqlo, but they usually only sell the long leggings like Jessica Alba wears. If you want ones that end close to your knees or in the middle of your calves, go raid a gym store.
I wish you all patience and luck as you begin your finals, papers, projects, habits of ten cups of coffee per day, all-nighters, and library obsessions. We can do this! I have already eliminated the stress of what to wear during these times for you, so that’s one less thing to worry about. You’re welcome.
Be happy and be fashionable. Toodles!
