Leggings Are The New Black

I rather be comfortable in leggings than uncomfortable in real pants.

Leggings Are The New Black

During my three years as an undergraduate, I have learned that the most important staple in my wardrobe are my leggings. Whether you're on your way to the gym, late for class or wearing a comfy sweater, leggings are always the answer. Over the course of my college career, I have tried various legging brands that I have learned to love. Below are a few of my favorite for various occasions and styles.

1. Lulu Lemon

is by far the greatest brand of leggings. While you will have to drop some cash on a pair black of full-on luon's, you will definitely be pleased with the quality and fit. If you're on the shorter side, Lulu Lemon will hem your leggings at no additional cost.

2. Fabletics by Kate Hudson is an online athletic wear boutique that offers a complete outfit for just $25. Outfits range from printed leggings and running shorts to athletic jackets and tank tops. If you prefer for your athletic wear to match, Fabletics is the way to go.

3. Old Navy offers affordable and stylish leggings that are great for high impact sports such as cycling, kickboxing, or cross-fit. If anything happens to your leggings, you won't feel bad having to throw away a worn-out pair.

4. If you are the Blair Waldorf of leggings, you wear Tory Sport. Thankfully, Tory Burch blessed us with an athletic line and it did not disappoint. You can wear leggings and a quarter-zip while still looking like the fabulous diva you are.

5. Lastly, Athleta

offers mid-priced leggings that range in patterns, styles and fit. They are great for a sporty chic look or with a sweater. The quality of Athleta athletic clothing is also long-lasting and durable.

The next time you clean out your closet, make room for leggings because no matter the season, they are always in style.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
