Dilemma of the Day: Clothes for Class

As it's still considered "back-to-school season" (even though I've been in class for about a month and am currently dealing with my first wave of tests), I've been seeing several posts on outfits to wear to class. There's an assortment of adorable outfits that honestly I would love to wear, but never to class. In high school, I usually made sure I looked cute for school most of the time. I even did so at my college last year. Now that I'm at UGA? Nike shorts and a t-shirt, everyday. Oops. I can feel the glaring judgement from other bloggers that like to give a million ideas of how to look cute and comfortable with little effort.

Don't get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with dressing up for class. It's just that no one does it here. I know at other schools it's different. At my first college, everyone was always dressed up for class and maybe wore a t-shirt or a sweatshirt once a week. I don't think I ever even saw a girl in sweatpants. Today I wore a "real" shirt and jeans and it was the most I had dressed up for class all semester and it was only because I needed to drop off a job application while I was out and didn't want to look like a slob. Personally, I like dressing down for class so much more because it allows me to be comfortable and focus on the material. However, I've also heard that when you feel better about your appearance you're more focused and more likely to do well on tests.

So what do you wear to class? Do you save your cute clothes for other things (like me) or dress to the nines to learn? Am I bad blogger for generally wearing Nike shorts and a t-shirt for school?

Love and hugs,

  1. Definitely not a bad blogger, everyone needs some down time! I am one of those crazies that dresses up every single day, I think I fall into the category of making me focus more but I do envy those who wear comfy clothes :)

  2. I definitely save my nicer clothes for other occasions. I don't want to waste them on class! But I try and dress nice because making an effort to look cute always helps me focus more than if I'm wearing yoga pants and a hoodie. It forces me to get up a little earlier, and that's always a good start to your day :) A nice pair of dark wash jeans, flats, and a blouse are my go-to.

  3. Norts and T-shirts are a girl's best friend as far as I'm concerned. And in the fall leggings, oversized button ups and vests become the new best friend. I read the perfect thing somewhere it went like this; "if I can't control my hair, how am I suppose to control my life?" HAH! So true.
