The one time that I wore yoga pants and a t-shirt to take a final exam, a classmate asked me if I had jogged to class. While I normally prefer to be put together for a day of lectures, I can understand the appeal that sweatpants have on a rainy morning. Even as a college freshman, when 8am science labs were typical and pledging a sorority consumed the majority of my time, I always made an effort to be presentable.
Truthfully, some days I completely faked it. I often rolled out of bed, brushed my hair, swiped a layer of mascara across my lashes, threw on a ZTA t-shirt and J.Crew pixies, and topped it off with a patterned scarf and a wool peacoat. Of course it only worked during the colder months, but getting dressed on a frigid day was simple.
As the end of summer approaches, I’ve found myself gravitating more towards brighter hues.
I don’t wear yellow that frequently, but I picked up this blouse a few weeks ago in hopes that it could be worn as the weather begins to transition.
I wore the top with this pair of blue-striped shorts that I found at Old Navy for a mere fifteen dollars. For someone who is obsessed with stripes, the shorts were a steal.
If you’re a student, what do you wear to class?
Sweatpants and a t-shirt, or a dress and cute jewelry?
