This post is all about effortless, cute, everyday outfit ideas for college girlies!
College will always be like this weird mix of wanting to be fashionable and look good but then not really having the energy (and budget 😭) to put the effort in. Let’s face it, it’s hard to summon the energy for these things when drowning in classes and assignments.
At least that was my experience a couple of years back in uni. I never seemed to have enough time. There was always a class to get to, assignments to complete, study groups to join. Thinking about looking fashionable sometimes took a back seat not gonna lie. It was rough.
But you know what, looking cute was important to me so I always tried to make the effort. And if it’s something that’s important to you you’ll find yourself making that little extra effort too. And you know what? Even though my budget was extremely limited (I was a broke college student y’all), it became a fun challenge to see what outfits I could create with what I had on hand. It’s not hard to look good in college. You just need a few basics and some styling magic!
There really is nothing like the college experience; juggling a social life and classes, plus trying to live life on a budget. This post is for the girlies trying to look good and get a degree.
