Girls you know what I'm talking about. You don't have to be in college to understand that sometimes there are moments when practicality rules over fashion. Part of me wants to wear heels and dresses to class, but the other part of me remembers that I have to ride a bike or walk 15 minutes to get to class every day.
Isn't there a happy middle that we can all compromise on?! Please God, tell me I can be fashionable AND comfortable! I don't believe in scrubbing in Uggs and sweats. (Uggs make me say 'Ugh'. Is that ironic? I think not!)
So here are a few problems you may face and some proposed solutions. Let me be your guide, weary traveler. As you cram for your finals and debate over Subway or Top Ramen, I will make it my goal to help the most important problem! :)
Problem #1: Walking/Biking
*Let's be serious for a mo'. My feet are not used to walking all day in 3 inch heels, I mean I suppose I'll build a tolerance, but let's be reasonable and build it up, yeah? My solution: boots and wedges: (They both keep your feet secure and less likely to trip. Both provide a strong base so those evil cracks on the ground won't make you look like an idiot!)

Problem #2: Laziness
*Sometimes I just feel like my closet is being uncooperative. There aren't any options and I don't feel like taking a long time wondering if this skirt goes together with that top as well as these jeans go with that shirt. So my ultimate solution to that is dresses with tights. Easy comfortable, and suitable for the colder temperatures!
