Invest In The 5 Basics That Will Never Leave Your Wardrobe

It's no secret that investing in quality basics are the key to building a stylish wardrobe. Without versatile clothes, working your favorite statement pieces into an outfit would be nearly impossible! Before trying to seek out the latest trends in retail, do some spring cleaning and assess your resources. Do you own enough clothing that can transition you through the seasons? If not, it may be time to go shopping for these five essential items. Don't underestimate the power of a good basic – these timeless pieces will always look effortlessly chic.

1. Black or White Fitted Sweater

Neutral sweaters are a blank canvas for fabulous coats, bags with a pop of color, or statement necklaces. Opting for a fitted cut pairs excellently with high waisted pants, and will add a level of sophistication to any look. When in doubt, throwing on a basic sweater is guaranteed to pull any outfit together – especially when you're pressed for time.

2. Dark Wash Skinny Jeans

Dark wash skinny jeans are the crown jewel of jeans across all fits and washes. Dressed up or dressed down, this pair of jeans will become your go-to for more occasions than you think. If slipping into well-fitting jeans is practically ingrained in your morning routine, why not make sure you have the best pair to take on the day with confidence?

3. Neutral Coat

Basic colored coats are super convenient because you don't have to worry about whether or not they match the rest of your outfit. They can easily be thrown on to keep you cozy while ensuring that you still look fab.

4. Black Pumps

If you don't have a pair of black pumps, I'm not sure how you made it this far in life... All joking aside, investing in a chic pair of basic black high heels will serve you well for so many events that you're bound to attend. From a long day of work to a party at night, black heels are one of the most versatile pairs of shoes in your closet.

5. White Sneakers

White sneakers are the street style equivalent of black pumps. The right pair of sneakers will actually make a difference in the overall appearance of an outfit, and they will successfully help your wardrobe transition from Winter to Spring.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
