2) Pleather Skater Skirt: I’m petite and have the hardest time finding skirts in 00 (AEO does run kind of big though so it still might not fit). I’ve been looking for a good pleather skirt for forever!
Here are my top fashion and beauty resolutions! Leave requests for future articles below and let me know if you are going to try any of these.
My giveaway ends Wednesday so check it out!
1) Clean Out and Organize Your Closet so You can Make the Most of What You Have
My Top Product Picks:
1) Hanger Holder
Organization Store, $19.97
All of my spare hangers always end up in a jumbled mess so this would be very convenient!
2) Scarf Organizer
High Fashion Home, $14.99
This is just too cute and adds will add a little sass and personality to your closet.
3) Multi- Tier Skirt/Pants Hanger
As a college student making the most of space is crucial. I love these to hang up all of my skirts and pants; they save so much room!
If you are a pack-rat like me and have a hard time deciding what items you should keep and which ones you should get rid of try turning all of your hangers the wrong direction and whenever you wear an item turn it the right direction. After a year (or whatever time period you choose) get rid of any items that are still facing backwards.
Also, a lot of clothes don’t fit me right so I end up with a lot of items I like but that need altering so now is the perfect time to get that done! I’m going to try to avoid buying clothes that need altering this year unless they are for a special event but that is easier said than done since I am so petite. Continue Reading
If you missed my outfit ideas for round one you can read it here.
Round two is generally the most casual day of rush week. Most schools will have you wear a rush week t-shirt and tell you to wear casual shorts with flat shoes.
When picking out shorts make sure the length is appropriate. I would try to stay away from plain khakis or boring shorts since you want to stand out. Also, don’t forget that a lot of dressier shorts have bows and ruffles that might not look right with t-shirts.
College Orientation means a lot a walking and making first impressions on your future classmates and staff members. You want to look casual but still put together. I would not recommend dresses or any shoes with a large heel.
Outfit One: Boho Romper
Romper, Vest,Purse, Sandals
Rompers are a great alternative to dresses and skirts if you want to look a little more casual and you don’t have to worry about a skirt flying up on a windy day and it works if you have to sit on the ground anywhere. The sandals have a tiny wedge which I find more comfortable than completely flat sandals. A small crossbody bag keeps you from lugging around a giant bag all day.
Outfit Two: Feminine Shorts
Tank, Shorts, Necklace, Clutch, Sandals
This look is very girly and polished. Flat sandals are great for walking around all day and the shorts are casual yet classy looking and would stand out in a sea of denim shorts. The shirt would look nice tucked in without being skin tight.
Let me know what you think of the outfits and leave requests for future articles below!
This light pink tank top is from Dillards and is perfect for day or night. I love the chain detailing and the little pocket.
Day: Pink+ Leather
Normally I tend to wear leather and edgier outfits at night but leather shorts are perfect for the day too. The shorts are from Forever 21 and have little gold studs on the sides that match the gold chain on the tank top. Sandals (Overstock.com) and a large bag (JCP) keep I casual and a dainty gold bracelet (Dillards) keeps it from looking too edgy for the day.
