5 Clothing Pieces Every College Girl Should Own

5 Clothing Pieces Every College Girl Should Own

These clothing items are essential!

Being a lover of fashion, after attending college for a year I found a few things that I highly recommend bringing and wearing at college. Here are just a few of my favorite fashion pieces that I think will be of great use!

1. Oversized Sweater

Big comfy sweaters are perfect to bring to college. They look great with leggings and jeans and can easily be dressed up with a statement necklace or a big scarf. They are a good piece to keep you warm during the fall and winter seasons when it is cold outside and will easily make you look put together!

2. Vest

Vests are great jackets to wear around campus. They are perfect for those fall days when it is chilly outside but there is no need for a winter coat. I highly recommend purchasing one!

3. Rain Boots

You never know when it is going to rain, but when it does you will want to keep your feet from getting wet. I suggest splurging and purchasing Hunter boots. They come in fun colors and you have the option of getting them short or high in length and with a glossy or matte finish! You can even buy Hunter socks which stick out of the boots and cuff over to add warmth to your feet and a cute design to your rain boots!

4. Black Leggings

This is such a simple item of clothing but it is a great item to have in your closet. They are great to wear with any top whether you are going for a casual or dressed up look. You can even find leggings that are fleece-lined or thermal for the winter which will keep you nice and warm. There are also leggings that have leather patches and zippers that add great detail!

5. Sundress

Sundresses are great pieces to wear in either the summer or the spring. They are so easy to throw on and will make you look like you put a lot of effort into getting ready for the day!

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning. You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret. So here are 20 tattoos where you can't go wrong. Here are 20 small tattoos with big meanings. (But don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!).

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki” means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.

15."Ad Maiora” is translated literally as “Towards greater things.” It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyphs means “explore.” It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower’s first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

6 Nail Colors Perfect For Both The Fall And The Winter

These colors are great so the next few seasons!


There are things about my appearance that I need to do. One of the biggest things I find necessary, personally, is painted nails. There are two reasons I need my nails to be painted: The first is that if they aren't painted then I will bite them into nubs, and the second reason is that I think that when my nails are perfectly manicured, the way they look makes me happy. Here are some colors that I think are perfect for the beginning of the school year.

1. A color to match your skin tone.


Since the year has just begun, you are probably moving into your new housing. This might cause your nail polish to chip. If you paint them a similar color to your skin tone, then the chipping will be less visible.

2. White or black.


I think these two colors are such a staple in a nail polish collection. Right now, my nails are white and I love the way they look. There are two kinds of white: white-white or yellow-white. Personally, I think the white-white looks best because it is so much brighter and they look so clean. Black nails are also sleek and, like white nails, can go with any outfit you're wearing.

3. Maroon.


Dark colors are my favorite for the fall. As the colors of the leaves change and they begin to fall, the dark colors will look great alongside the changing colors of the atmosphere. Dark reds and maroons remind me so much of Thanksgiving, which is one of the best parts of the fall.

4. Grey.


This is one of my favorite looks for the end of fall and throughout winter. There are so many different greys to choose from and they are all so unique. You could wear a dark grey during fall and gradually wear a light grey during winter. When I think of winter, snow is the first thing that comes to mind. I like to wear light colors in the winter to help me think of snow in a place that doesn't get any - Florida.

5. Brown.


This is a very unique color for the fall and winter times. It looks great in the fall because it goes perfectly with the tree transitions when the leaves are about to fall and after they fall they turn brown.

6. Navy blue or sparkly white.


In winter, the snowy night times are beautiful. The sky looks almost like a dark blue and the snow sparkles from the moon's reflection. These colors are two of the most beautiful colors to have in winter and it is a nice reminder of curling up in bed during the cold winter nights and looking outside the window at the sparkling snow and the starry night.

There it is. A short list of six great nail colors to wear during this fall and winter. These colors either go hand in hand with the seasonal colors or they balance out the atmospheric colors for the next seasons.
