It would be a counterproductive day if at least one Senior at my high school didn't grumble the following words: "I just want to be in college right now." I certainly shared this train of thought on Sunday as I was driving back from Athens, GA, home to my number one: University of Georgia. (Go Dawgs!) My mom and sister and I drove up for my sister's swim meet at Ramsey Hall (saw the UGA diving team; needless to say their collegiate style consists of very little clothing. In other words, mostly Speedos.) and I visited my two favorite freshman, Alena and Emily! (Thanks for a wonderful afternoon, ya'll!) I peppered them with questions that had been accumulating since I applied to UGA, and typical of my fashion blogger self, I asked about the style at college. Keeping my eyes peeled around campus and talking to my friends, I picked up a few do's and don'ts for surviving life at college fashionably.
1. Walking shoes. Unfortunately, however attractive those Manolo Blahnik's are, comfort comes before beauty in this case. Alena said Chacos or Teva sandals are a must-have for trekking up and down campus all day. Tretorn sneakers are also a stylish alternative. I usually sponsor ballet flats in such instances, but heavy duty walking will wear out soles, so one should look for something more sturdy. On a separate note about shoes, Emily mentioned that rain boots are another must. I adore Wellington boots (Wellies!), but less expensive ones can be found at Target. Finally, both girls said that cowboy boots were another must as many girls go country for football games and parties.
