Being Comfortable In Class Is The Move

Being Comfortable In Class Is The Move

Throwing on a comfy romper and a sweater for a lecture is way more my speed

After the term of the dreaded 8 a.m., I quickly learned that being comfortable is essential to my education. Now, please don't read this article as me hating on people who dress up for their classes because I fully support people doing whatever makes them most comfortable in class!! For me, that just happens to be wearing super comfy clothes.

Aside from my professional attire, I have two other categories of clothes: rather uncomfortable party clothes and my comfy, everyday clothes. There is absolutely NO way you will ever catch me wearing uncomfortable clothes in class. I am here to learn and get my degree, which means I need to be dressed so that I can comfortably sit in this two-hour lecture.

Class is hard enough as it is, so I don't want the extra burden of feeling like I need to wear the hottest outfit too. To other people, this could be motivating, but it would add bonus stress to my life. Throwing on a comfy romper and a sweater for a lecture is way more my speed. I definitely will spend time in the morning preparing my outfit, but my style is pretty simple and comfortable which makes it easy to whip an outfit together when I need to.

In high school, I literally would wake up, at least, an hour before classes started so I had PLENTY of time to straighten my hair, do my makeup, and eat breakfast. I always picked out my outfit the night before so I didn't have to feel rushed getting dressed in the morning. For four years, I did my makeup and hair almost every single day. In college, I stopped doing my makeup as often and now, I haven't even worn makeup since 2018. Personally, I was never good at doing my makeup and I feel more confident without it (even though it took me quite a while to realize that).

Now, I'm happier in my skin and this translates to what I'm wearing. In high school, I wasn't dressing for myself as much as I should have been. In college, I have worked on developing my sense of style and I have spent many hours at second-hand stores picking through the racks to find that ~perfect~ pair of pants.

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.

'Sissy, Why is That Boy Wearing Makeup?'

June is time to celebrate equality.

This past weekend, I went to the mall with my family. It was just a normal family excursion, and I wanted to walk into Sephora to show my mom a perfume I liked. We go inside, and my mother and I drift away from my dad and 6 year old sister, Sierra. I showed her the perfume I thought smelled amazing (Roses de Chloé) and we look for my sister and father to exit the store. As soon as we leave, my little sister grabs my hand and asks, "Sissy, why is that boy wearing makeup?"

This was the first time my little sister has ever asked about anything like this, and I wanted to make sure I gave her an answer. I turned to her and said, "Sierra, sometimes there are boys who wear makeup, and girls who may dress like boys. People are allowed to wear what they want, it doesn't matter." Sierra looks up at me, says, "Oh okay," and that was the end of it.

Sharing this experience to say, HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!

So thankful to live in a country where all sexual orientations get a day to celebrate their love. That's what this world needs more of-- love. It shouldn't matter who it is, where they are from, the color on their skin, or their gender identity.

When Sierra was born, I always wondered when this conversation would come up. I wondered what I would say, how she would react to it, and how she would be exposed to it. Like I consistently preach, everything happens for a reason, and I'm glad Sierra was able to get exposure and receive an immediate answer. Love is love, and I will forever stand by that.
