Jeans are a must have for every girl's wardrobe.

Unpopular Opinion: I Prefer Jeans Over Leggings
American Eagle

Summer is coming to a close, and fall is almost upon us (thank goodness). There is nothing a girl loves more than fall: pumpkin flavored coffee, tailgates, huge sweaters, and for may...leggings. Leggings have gained lots of traction in the past decade and have become a staple in almost every girls wardrobe. For all of high school (and freshman year of college) leggings were the only thing i wore from October-May.

There was a time when I don't think I owned a single pair of jeans. Over the past year my preferences have changed, and i've come to the simple conclusion: I like leggings better than jeans. Before people start firing back, this has nothing to do with dress code reasons and "leggings not being pants."

I love to kick back in a cozy sweatshirt and leggings on a cold rainy afternoon, but they're no longer something I wear everyday. My biggest problem with jeans, was that I never could find a pair that fit properly and were comfortable. I suggest that girls who don't like the feel of still denim, hit up Charlotte Ruse and get a pair of jeggings. T

hey have the stretchiness and softness of leggings, but also the structure that is found in a solid pair of jeans. Some of my other favorite stores to buy jeans are: Aeropostale, Hollister, and American Eagle. They come in a variety and colors for a fairly reasonable price. Another reason why I prefer jeans over leggings, is because they're more versatile. While i've seen girls rock heels and a crop top with their favorite pair of Lululemon's, I personally just prefer the look of jeans better. You can wear them with a t-shirt to class and add a blazer and booties for your afternoon internship. In my opinion, a solid pair of jeans is a must have for every woman. So as you head out to do your back to school shopping, maybe add a pair of jeans to your shopping cart instead of your 8th pair of black leggings.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
