15 Shoes College Girls Rock, Whether They Look Ridiculously Good Or Just RIDICULOUS

Trendy, practical or both?

Maybe it's just where I go to school, but everyone is pretty similar on the surface.

There's a certain predictability of outfits, and shoes are definitely not excluded.

1. Uggs

Being ugly-chic, these comfy shoes are a winter staple.

2. Adidas Superstar

I can't tell if I like these or really hate these, but they're definitely trendy.

3. Vans

Okay, so Vans are cool, but everyone has the same two pairs and it's overwhelming.

4. Sperry's

"Preppy casual" or "My dad might own a boat."

5. LL Bean Mocassins

Comfy, true. But are these practical?

6. Chelsea boots

There are so many colors and textures that it's borderline overwhelming, but they're definitely trendy.

7. High top Converse

THE college girl staple.

8. Timberlands

Deadass boo.

9. Thigh high boots

Can someone explain the combination with the long sweatshirts?

10. Bean Boots

Another winter staple.

11. Running sneakers

Are you going to the gym or did you just wing your outfit this morning? Nobody will ever know!

12. Hunter rain boots


13. Riding boots

Are these still in style? They are surprisingly comfortable.

14. Doc Martens

They look so comfy, but they are pretty weather resistant.

15. Crocs

When will this trend die?

10 Outfits Every College Girl Wears To Class At Least Once

You can thank me later.

It's happened on more than one occasion.

The occasion of being called out more than once for dressing down for class and by "down" I mean some of the haters we hate to love claiming that they can't see the shorts we're wearing under the oversized band tee on our way to class.

Contrary to popular belief, yes I'm not oblivious to how my choice of outfits for class tends to shift on the more comfortable side and yes, I am aware that it looks like I'm not wearing pants, I like it that way.

Every girl in college wears what they feel is comfortable enough to wear in a 2-hour lecture and these are my ideas of comfort.

1. The infamous oversized tee with Nike shorts.

I'll say it right now, I have a variety of assorted Soffee and Nike shorts that I pair with almost every oversized tee I own and it's my go-to for those 8 AM math lectures.

2. Oversized tee with leggings and riding boots.

Once the first red, yellow and orange leaf is found on campus grounds, you know you're about to see a swarm of college girls, like me, sporting riding boots in every shade of brown. Jeans optional.

3. Oversized tee with leggings and rain boots.

Once the first rainfall hits campus, you better believe you'll see this same 'fit paired with Hunter boots in almost every color.

4. The "I'm going to the gym right after class, I SWEAR" look.

Whether or not I have plans to go to the gym after class or not, I'm probably in my gym gear 4 times of the week and I'm not ashamed by it.

5. Jeans.

I've always had a hate/hate relationship with wearing jeans when I absolutely do not have to and here's why: they make my derriere completely disappear. When (and if) you catch me wearing jeans in lecture hall it's probably because someone paid me a large sum of money to do so.

6. Your boyfriend's flannel paired with... you guessed it, your favorite pair of leggings.

This is probably one of the many flannels I've stolen from my boyfriend and certainly not the last one. Paired with another favorite standard black leggings, you can't go wrong with this outfit to snooze in.

7. The baseball hat and quarter zip ensemble.

One of my all times favorites, you can't go wrong with a zipper up 3x too big for your body and a baseball hat you honestly forgot where you got it from. We also can't forget our infamous black leggings.

8. Your "walk of shame" outfit.

Now, this doesn't mean you roll up to Intro to Psychology wearing what you wore to the lacrosse mixer the night before, no. This is more of the outfit you so quickly had to throw on in a span of two minutes because you left so and so's apartment downtown an hour too late.

9. A v-neck.

Another one of my favorites.

10. Dresses (or anything even relatively formal).

Disclaimer: I personally would never come to class wearing this but gigantic kudos to cute a** girls that do decide to wear this because you look good.

Bad Day, Not A Bad Life

Even after your worst days, the sun is still going to rise in the morning, and it's your job to get up and rise with it.


The quote "it's a bad day, not a bad life" is common to see all across Pinterest, but what do you do when the bad days start piling up on top of each other? One of the hardest things I've had to do in my twenty-one years is grieve the loss of someone who is still alive. No one plans for temporary people and friendships, most people over-idolize the thought that everyone will be in their lives forever and are naive to the fact that it is a fairly unrealistic thought. While I am increasingly aware that people are put into our lives for a specific amount of time for a specific reason, it's hard to lose someone who was practically part of who you are as a person. How do you pick yourself up from that?

It's so easy to degrade yourself after someone says they don't want to be with you anymore, but I've found it exceedingly important in situations such as those to get up every morning, look in the mirror, and remind yourself of all the things you still are. In my personal opinion, no matter how badly you hurt or were hurt by someone, nobody should be considered a mistake; at one point, dating or being their friend made you happy and that was exactly what you wanted. You are not damaged goods because someone was incapable of seeing your worth, and you are most certainly not a failure because a friendship or relationship didn't work out. You're ultimately wiser for going through something hard, becoming a product of the lessons you've learned along the way. If negative thoughts make their way into your life, you should tell the thoughts to go to hell because that's exactly where they came from. As cliché as it sounds, I've learned that no matter how awful something feels, everything always gets better with time. When you lose someone who felt like home, build a new foundation and become your own home.

In the middle of my freshman year of college, I was dealing with a lot of unnecessary drama and was having my fair share of bad days. The peak of my bad days occurred over that Thanksgiving break and my dad looked at me and changed my life in one sentence when he said; "Even after your worst days, the sun is still going to rise in the morning, and it's your job to get up and rise with it." It's interesting how much a few words can impact a person's life. Now, before I go to bed after a particularly rough day, I remind myself of my job to wake up in the morning and move forward. Life is short and I find it my duty to live it as fully, happily, and wholeheartedly as I possibly can.
