7 Shoes In My Wardrobe That I Could Not Live Without

When the seasons change, the wardrobe changes. At least, for most girls anyways. We love to break out sundresses in the summer, sweaters in the fall, and cozy boots in the winter. Every girl can relate to having their own "go-to" outfit. It's the outfit that they feel the best in, works for numerous scenarios, and can be versatile as it can work both dressed up or down. If you can relate to the above, you are not alone. However, for me, my favorite item is shoes. Anyone who knows me on a personal level knows I have an obsession with shoes. Here are my shoe brands in my wardrobe that I can't imagine living without and why:

1. Hunter Rain Boots

Although hard to drive in, these boots are a stable in my life. I have a pair of short grey boots and tall black boots, and I can't imagine coming to college without a pair of rainboots. Butler tends to flood, leaving these shoes as the best option to wear in order to stay dry. They can be accompanied by a sweater or just a big t-shirt. Also, Hunter has done an incredible job of providing new colors and styles for different wardrobe types.

2. Chacos

Yep, I said it. I am a fan. I am a fan of Chacos because they can get wet, and sometimes you don't want to wear clunky boots in the summer. They are perfect for travel, hiking, anything "outdoorsy", or activities where you will be on your feet all day. I love the patterns they have and think these are a great shoe for anyone who loves to rock the "athleisure" look.

3. Adidas SuperStars

I used these shoes while I traveled abroad and did not complain about my feet once. They are comfortable, fashionable, and can be adorned with both cute, going out outfits or also workout attire.

4. Booties

I have a pair of Blowfish brown booties and a pair of black booties. I love natural colors, so why not have a pair of both? Although I was once a fan of tall boots (and still wear mine on occasion), booties are my favorite because you can still show off cute leggings, tights, or jeans. They can be worn with both dresses and pants.

5. Birkenstocks

For me, these made the list due to their comfort. Comfortable shoes is everything to me. Also, I think it's cool how these shoes have come back into style.

6. Asics Running Shoes

With my mom as a major runner, I was put into Adidas as a kid. These are my favorite shoes to workout in, and always give me the support I need, since I am entirely injury-prone.

7. Black Wedges and Heels

C'mon girls. We need these. We need these for business, parties, going out, dressing up, anything else you could literally name. These are a MUST. You have to have a pair of heels that you feel comfortable in as a woman.

8. Steve Madden

The picture above is an example. I own slip-on shoes, fashionable tennis shoes, and sandals that are Steve Madden, and guess what, they are all some of my favorite pieces. If you find a color that matches with colors in your closet, DO IT.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
