Hollywood’s biggest night has officially come and gone, sadly marking the end of the height of award season. This being said, however, it most certainly went out with a bang when the Oscars took place last Sunday night at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. It would be an understatement to say that the awards were anything less than memorable, with so many unexpected moments that will definitely be talked about for years to come. Besides just looking back on the awards and remembering who won, who lost, and, in this case, who actually won, there is one more aspect of the night that people will likely be talking about an making comparisons to well into the future—all the best looks from the red carpet! Here were the top ten best dressed at the 2017 Oscars:

Sometimes low-maintenance girls are looked at as lazy or sloppy. But in reality, I think low-maintenance girls are just so confident in who they are that putting in that extra effort isn't important to them.
Here are 12 things that only low-maintenance girls understand:
1. Leggings or sweat pants and a T-shirt is your normal everyday outfit
Why spend the day uncomfortable in some tight jeans or mini skirt when you can lounge around in some comfy clothes? We aren't here to impress anyone, we are just trying to sit back and chill.
2. Makeup is a special occasion
If you catch a low-maintenance girl with makeup on, take it as a compliment. We are trying to touch our face and rub our eyes as much as we'd like without makeup getting in the way. Not to mention, we wouldn't dare spend over $15 on some foundation.
3. We would rather stay in with a movie then go out for the evening
Something low-key and low stress always sounds better than spending the time, and the money, for a night out. I am perfectly content with taking advantage of my $7.99 monthly payment for Netflix.
4. You're always the first one ready
While your friends spend hours doing their hair, makeup and then finding the perfect outfit, you sit around and wait. Your 10 minutes thrown-together-look gives you time to nap while everyone else takes their sweet time.
5. When you say you "don't care what we do," you really don't care
Seriously, a date night off the McDonald's dollar menu is fine by me. I am not expecting you to wine and dine me on a big extravagant evening, I'm just trying to get a Big Mac in my mouth.
6. Your messy bun isn't a fashion statement, it's actually just your hairstyle
We aren't about to spend time curling or straightening our hair everyday. Every day is a good day to throw your hair up into a ponytail or bun.
7. The extent of your jewelry collection is one pair of earrings and maybe a necklace
Who needs more than one pair of earrings? Diamond studs match everything… right?
8. And your shoe collection is even smaller
Should I wear flip-flops or Converse?
9. Shopping isn't exactly your favorite thing to do
Who has patience for finding the perfect designer brands or finding the best fit? I am perfectly content with my T-shirts and leggings. One size fits all.
10. Your favorite gifts are the sentimental ones, not the expensive ones
A homemade card or a small gift that makes someone think of you is forever better and more meaningful than an expensive present. I don't want your money, I just want to know you thought of me.
11. You don't put in the effort to chase after a guy
I'm awesome and I know it. If a guy is worth it enough to be in my life, he can come after me. I am not down for any games or players. Just someone who embraces my low-maintenance qualities.
12. You are always the first person to help someone out
Giving your friends a ride or lending them two dollars isn't a huge deal. Just helping someone out gives you peace of mind. Everyone should have time to help a homie out.
Have you ever found yourself going through your closet, searching through endless amounts of clothes only to find that you actually have nothing to wear?
Well, that is me all the time.
I feel like I struggle constantly to find something that will me "good". I always watch on Instagram, Facebook, and even Snapchat about videos of people transforming their old clothes into something fun and trendy. Let's rewind the story a little bit to last Thursday:
My usual plans for Thursday are school and then coaching color guard; last Thursday we did not have guard so I had a free night. What to do with my time? Then the idea hit me:
My heart was full of excitement, but my wallet was trembling in fear; especially when it came to Charlotte Russe. In there, I feel like I can spend hours in there just trying on different clothes. So of course, my wallet is still trembling and telling me to just pick ONE thing. And so I did, a little white dress with spaghetti straps.
Flash forward to that Saturday:
After a LOOOOONG day of work, I get home to get ready to go out with one of my best friends. She is sending me pictures of what she's going to wear, while I am trying to figure our what I should wear with my new dress. It's about twenty-six degrees out, and I don't want to be freezing the whole night.
Eventually, my friend tells me to wear a black long sleeve shirt. The only problem with this is that the only shirts I have like that are v-neck, and when I did try on the dress with the shirt; it did not look cute at all. at this point, I am laying on a pile of clothes knowing that I only have a little bit of time to get ready. I am frustrated and angry.
Why does everything look terrible?
Then, in a pile that is supposed to be donated, I find a pair of all black fleece leggings. Another light bulb went off: Make it into a shirt! I had seen soo many videos of people doing it and the "shirts" looking really cute, but at the same time, I felt like I would totally screw it up.
Just send it.
That phrase kept popping in my mind, and so I finally sent it. The "shirt" actually came out really well! my outfit looked cute and people kept telling me how adorable it was! Plus, the fleece leggings did keep me warm in the chilly night.
Overall, I feel like some of the DIY videos you see are sketchy, but the leggings are a for sure go to!
