When I started college in the fall, I had every intention of maintaining my rather fancy everyday style. My high school’s dress code was a loose “business casual,” and as a result, I became accustomed to dressing nice each day (and actually really enjoyed it—gasp!). I’ve now made it into my second semester of college and have yet to attend classes in my sweatpants…so I guess I’m still doing okay with my goal.

My point it, it’s very strange that I had no idea what to wear last Saturday night. I wanted to share with y’all my struggle and what I ultimately wore to this special “event”… Continue reading “I Don’t Know What to Wear!”
