on wednesdays, we wear pink

Sorry for the cliche title, but for the first time ever, I thought of it while wearing pink on a wednesday!
I don't know about any of you, but I have such trouble dressing for school right now when it's so cold out! It seems like no matter what you do or how many layers you put on, you're still freezing! Which of course makes it extra tempting to revert to sweats every single day. But my New Year's resolution is to not do that, and to keep up style even when I'm lazy and cold, so I'm powering though! I've even started to wear fleece leggings under my jeans (you can get them for $4 at TJ Maxx!) and wearing two pairs of socks as well (a knee high pair over the leggings and a fuzzy pair over that)! 
Another thing I'm doing more often, so I can keep with my resolution, is layering collared shirts under sweaters. Another layer of warm, hooray! To be honest, this is really the first year I've started doing it. I think it's probably because it's the first year I've really settled into what I think my personal style is (prep!) and stopped trying to deny it. I definitely have spent too many years trying to dress "cool" (yes, college students can fall victim to that) and ended up feeling uncomfortable most of the time. But now I dress how I like, and keep extra warm while doing it! I've learned that it's best to use a collared shirt that fits you well, and use a sweater that isn't a skin tight one so it doesn't show all the bumps of your shirt.

I've also taken to wearing my rainboots almost every single day. With all the snow that keeps coming, and then melting, I'm too nervous to wear all my nice shoes and ruin them! I have Hunters right now, and even though they're more expensive, I highly recommend investing in a pair! I'd gone through three cheapy pairs of rainboots before getting a pair of Hunters, and I'm so glad I did! I'll never have to buy rainboots again.

Another one of my staples right now are my tech gloves! They make my bus ride to campus and changing music as I walk so much easier. Plus, I'm an absolute sucker for anything with a bow!
