Relax Your Wardrobe
August 31, 2015-
So you’re headed back to the Wack this fall for another great year at Baylor, or maybe it’s your first semester at college. Either way, there’s something you need to know: comfort is in fashion.
Everyone knows that it’s easiest to throw on some nikes and an oversized tee before you run out the door for your morning class. Fashionistas have noticed this and helped to create fashionable athletic wear. It’s easy, comfortable, and pretty. What more could a busy girl want?
Let’s take a look at some options:
Clearly, this outfit works best for the girl waking up early for class, eating a relaxed lunch with friends in the dining hall, and finishing the day with yoga to wind down. But there are so many more relaxed looks out there. Take a look at this Pinterest board for inspiration, and remember the looks you love when you make that last-minute wardrobe revamping shopping spree before heading off to a great, relaxed semester.

Happy Feet, Happy Me
August 25, 2015-
With school starting up, you’re probably worrying about the perfect outfits to wear to look cute, fun, quirky—whatever style personality you have. It’s fun, and it does say something about who you are! But let me pass on some advice from someone who has been there and made a mistake—if you’re feet aren’t happy traversing all over campus, you won’t be happy traversing all over campus.
It was the first week of classes freshman year. I was so excited to be wearing the cutest new pair of red ballet flats! I made the trek from my 8th street residence to the BSB all the way across campus. Sat through biology class with my feet sweltering hot and blisters the size of a nickel on my heels. Then, I made the trek back to my dorm barefoot because I couldn’t stand the pain.
Don’t do what I did. Invest in some comfy shoes for walking all over campus. And don’t worry, comfy doesn’t have to mean ugly. Luckily the footbed sandal is a full-blog trend right now. Here are some good options:
