Cool for College

Tomorrow is my first day at my college campus (I'm attending Colorado State University, a few hours from my house). I can't wait to be inspired by all the fashion I might see there, and I hope to be a style inspiration to others, too. But most of all, I wanted to share some of my favorite things for college, clothes that I (mostly) happen to be bringing with me!
College is super-casual, but I don't wanna look sloppy so I'm bringing along my AE Boy Fit Crop Jean in the medium super worn wash ($24.95). The rips and tears make the crops more casual, but I plan on making them more polished by wearing them with a floral babydoll tank top (I have plenty from Hollister!)
For those cooler days, I'll want to stay warm while walking around campus. Abercrombie & Fitch's Cass pullover hoodie ($39.89) paired with their Maura knit shorts ($19.89) will be perfect for windy Colorado afternoons. I have the hoodie in pink (the football logo is very collegiate) and the shorts in burgundy.
When I want to look really cute, I'll wear Hollister's La Mesa short sleeve sweater ($17.43) in navy with a lacy cami (try the San Onofre tank in turquoise, $9.89) and a patterned skirt, such as the Avalon skirt in red ($29.89).
If you're heading off to college soon, don't forget the essentials: stylish flip-flops, comfy flats, sunglasses, a cute tote, great jeans, plenty of tanks and camis and hoodies for cooler days or nighttime. And don't forget to be fashionable--you'll wanna stand out from the crowd of t-shirt and sweats-wearing students!


  1. Awesome, congrats on going to college!:) You will definitely stand out on the campus for sure! Cute ideas too for your everyday looks!

  2. Thanks! I'm so excited :) The ideas are great for college, but also for anybody that wants to stand out without looking too high maintenance!
