C o l l e g e.
In most colleges, you have the freedom to wear whatever you want. In other colleges, they have uniforms. And in others, there are certain dress codes, like no sleeveless tops or shorts with a certain length. In UP, where I study, there is no dress code at all. You can where whatever you want at all.
The thing is, it is more difficult than it seems. Especially being a fashion-lover, honestly. The perception is that because we are given the freedom to wear whatever we want, we can have an easier time dressing up and choosing our outfits every single day.
But there are actually more factors to it than you realize. In UP in particular, we always have to think of the h e a t. It is always incredibly hot, so we can't always wear pants, or long-sleeves. Then we have to think about w a l k i n g o r c o m m u t i n g from one college to another or from the campus back home. We need to wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes. We also need to think about s a f e t y. UP isn't exactly the safest campus around because of its openness to the public. So, we can't always wear shorts or certain tops and stuff.
It's really hard! So just because we can wear whatever we want, at the same time, we can't.
I'm saying this because lately, I have been having so much trouble picking out my outfits every single day. Honestly, it is so taxing! On time and creativity. Seriously. I always thought it would be so easy, but noooo, it's more difficult than others think, honestly. Especially if you always want to look fashionable, but have to compromise because of everything else.
So I have decided that every weekend, I am going to plan out my outfits for the week. Haha. That way I don't have to panic every morning (and end up being late because I can't pick out a decent outfit), and so there is assurance that I will look fashionable (image is sort of that important to me okay sorry).
So I am going to post a few college outfits that I really like/probably going to wear sometime.
s k i r t . It's really hard to wear a skirt in college, especially UP, because it's hard to walk and commute from one college to another, and also, it's dangerous, if you know what I mean. Haha. But on the days when I don't need to commute, it's safe to wear. Also because it's paired with a simple tee, which makes it more casual.
3. Outfit 3. What I love about this one is that it's really simple. like, everything's black, and then the floral scarf adds detail and depth and more fashion into it.
v i n t a g e in a way because of the color scheme and the socks with the oxfords. But it's cool. Makes a statement.
g e e k c h i c with the glasses, I can wear my pair as well.
top and the skinnies. But I don't. If I purchase something in the near future, I an wear something like this. But I love it because it's sort of different, and also comfortable. Although a little warm because the top is long-sleeved.
white Converse!! <3
brown cardigan like that. Huhu. I love this outfit so much. I love how adding browns can really make an outfit stand out.
14. Outfit 14. Love this so much omg. It's really really really cute huhuhu. Although I'll probably change the boots to glads because I don't have boots at all.
headband. One accessory can add so much more detail to an outfit.
bright bag adds a pop of color to a greyscaled-outfit. But I'll probably wear a grey T-shirt so it's not longsleeved. And maybe I'll wear black skinnies or leggings or even black shorts. Also, this bag, it's not "red." No, it's a certain shade of red, that has a little purple/blue to it, which makes it more appealing to look at than just bloody red that screams at you.
soften the entire outfit. Who says you can't pair dark colors with pastel?
bunned hair and the knotted top, but it works so well, especially for college. Although I probably wouldn't knot my top that high on my waist. Haha.
" p e r f e c t - f o r - c o l l e g e " for me. I should really start buying scarves. They really make outfits more interesting.
white Converse. But I love how simple this is yet so perfect already.
A colored top, some light wash distressed shorts, and different colored Converse. I've always wanted to e x p e r i m e n t p a i r i n g d i f f e r e n t c o l o r s t o g e t h e r in one outfit. Most people initially have doubts, that oh, yellow and purple won't work together, or bright pink, and turquoise will never work. But it's really in the way of bringing them together and working the outfit as you wear it for it to really stand out.
p l a y i n g w i t h v a r i o u s c o l o r s .
changing the designs on a shirt and wearing different colored bottoms (yet with the same style for each piece), it can already have different looks all together. Lovelovelove. I've been meaning to buy different colored bottoms so I don't always have to wear regular drab skinnies or light-wash distressed denims all the time.
29. Outfit 29. One of my favorite outfits because it's really comfortable and simple. And I just really like brown, I don't know why. Haha.
So yeah. That's 29 outfits. I didn't reach 30, simply because. I am going to try to recreate some of the outfits right now. Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
And also, I am really going to try to blog more, but if I can't, like I haven't been able to recently, I'll post like really long posts to make up for the lack of posts. Hihi.
See ya'll! :) x
