7 Ways The Lazy College Girl Can Always Look Put Together

So you never have to sacrifice good style for more sleep.

7 Ways The Lazy College Girl Can Always Look Put Together

When the assignments start to pile up and the hours slept grow fewer and fewer it can be easy for style to take the back burner. The good news, you don't have to forgo looking your best. Here are some ideas for my fellow serial snoozers to always feel put together with minimal effort.

Accessorizing can make all the difference 


You would be surprised the difference throwing on a bold necklace or a trendy hat can add. Simple touches like these can accent and completely transform your look in no time at all.

Plan your outfit ahead of time


Anyone else have a battlefield of clothing all over the floor from trying to get dressed in the morning? Planning your outfits the night before can save you from a major headache in the morning and can (almost) guarantee you'll always be on time.

Invest in basics


One of the smartest things you can do for your wardrobe is invest in some high-quality closet staples. Things like solid tees, jeans in various washes, a comfortable and stylish pair of shoes. With the frequency and ease, you can style basics, fast fashion doesn't last. Spending a bit extra on your wardrobe staples will absolutely save you in the long run.

Wrinkle resistant is the way to go


When shopping, try to keep an eye out for fabrics that won't wrinkle. Fabrics like denim, velvet, and polyester don't tend to crinkle or fold easily. Having more items made of these fabrics means less maintenance and no fear of showing anywhere in a wrinkly outfit.

Master the simple beauty routine


Having a signature makeup look that only takes a few steps down pat can be a game changer. Not only will it reduce the time it takes you to get ready (and give you more time to sleep) it can be a simple to boost your confidence and feel put together. Bonus points if you're able to do it on your way to class!

Start with a statement


In those moments where you are truly in a rush and can't seem to find something to wear fast enough, start with a statement pieces. Whether it's a bold jacket or a bright top, find a bold piece and build around it with basic items like a simple pair of shoes or denim anything.

Be bold


Bold items can seem intimidating but can be extremely easy to style. Adding a few adventurous pieces can be an effortless way to add some flair and feel on trend.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
