Its raining, Its pouring...

Okay, I need to get this out because it has been driving me crazy for the past couple of weeks.
First off, I go to college in Pennsylvania ,however, you would think I attend a school in freaking Seattle because of all the rain we've been getting. And, of course, when it rains, one would think it is perfect weather for a cozy sweater and a cute pair of rainboots, not the case on my campus. I realize it is still warm out even though its almost October, but you look REDICULOUS wearing rain boots and shorts!! Like, since when did that become a fashion statment? And do not get me wrong, I love me some rainboots (I am currently wearing mine) but come on, suffer through the 70 degree weather and put on a pair of pants. Any pants will do: leggings, jeans, cords, etc. And in the case that you have to, there-is-no-other-option, wear shorts, then by all means wear shorts....but with sneakers or flats or ANYTHING OTHER THAN BOOTS.
Small question: Don't you wear rain boots to stay dry? OK, well if you are wearing shorts, sorry sweety, but your bare legs are still going to get wet. Nice try. Just do us both a favor and cover up, there is always going to be a sunnier day.

Taking it ALL the way

To start things off, I have to first apologize for my absence. I realize it has been FOR.EV.ER since I've graced your computer screens with my energetic and whitty fashion critiques, however absence makes the heart grow fonder. So with that, I promise I will be more prompt with my posts.
It has been about three weeks since I started school, and I can already tell by the freshman roaming the campus, that this years fashions are just waiting for me to sink my teeth into them! As for this post, I have a major "problem" I'd like to address. This is just a basic concept that I would have hoped to believe everyone would understand: When getting dressed for the day, and you've put the effort into your hair and make-up, why not just go the whole nine yards and put the appropriate clothing on! I can't fathom why someone would put on a very nice top and then wear soffe shorts!!! can't be serious. Lets just take the extra TWO SECONDS and put on a pair of jeans. It is just not that complicated. Also, yoga pants are NOT daily attire. Yes, they are great for lounging around the apartment, and hey, I wear them to class sometimes with other "comfy" articles of clothing. BUT, when you are wearing a sweatshirt, yoga pants, and high-heeled boots, you need to check yourself. I'm sure sneakers would have sufficed.
Part of this blog, is to help those of you who fall under the unfortunate happening written in these posts. So, in order to make the world a better dressed place, my solution to these fashion-nots would be, when in doubt, throw on jeans. They are the go to in every outfit. And if you just got an awesome pair of heeled boots, either wait to wear them with a particular outfit, or again, put on jeans!! I am telling you, jeans are always safe bet.
