Something about the spring makes totally nostalgic for college. It’s a weird time of endings and beginnings, and some of my best memories at Fordham took place around this time of year. Hard to believe that I graduated almost three years ago! Guess it’s a good thing I hoarded so many college tees during my time on campus.
Actually, this time around, I picked the skirt first. It’s swingy, has pockets, and is great for tucking in tees. The Madras plaid has a few different colors, so it goes with a lot of different tops (as seen here). No surprise that my maroon tee was a nearly perfect match. It’s fun to mix up graphic tees with printed pieces. I added ankle boots because it’s still pretty cool in the mornings and early evenings.
Side note: I’m still obsessed with my hair. I used this HC tutorial for my side braid.
Since the print makes such a statement, I kept the accessories minimal — just my class ring! School pride never goes out of style, right? 😉
Anyway, next Thursday is the day!! Don’t forget to link up with Priya and me to show off your cool graphic tees and even cooler outfits! A quick roundup of our looks, in case you still need some inspiration…
I spent this past weekend at Her Conference, an annual conference for college women and recent graduates who are interested in the journalism, marketing and journalism industries. While I may not be looking for my next internship or first job any more, it was still incredibly inspiring to hear industry leaders share their honest advice. Here are some of the gems.
