Young, Fabulous & Broke
I’m a college student. I live on a college student’s budget and thus, I dress like a college student. Now, being (and subsequently dressing like) a college student is not necessarily a bad thing. As far as I’m concerned, it’s all about your attitude. And I may be young and broke, but I’m also fabulous and dress it.
Because I had the bright idea to take early morning classes, I’ve developed a tendency to wear the same thing every day. Cute top, skinny jeans, ballet flats. Sometimes I’ll mix things up with a cute dress or a sweater over my shirt but generally that’s what I, and most college girls, wear.
Here are a few of my favorite “crap I’m late to class but I still need to look cute for the guy on the end of my row” outfits.
Available at Macy’s, this Calvin Klein jumper is $69.50. And the best part is you can wear it right now, with black tights and cute flats (or however you want) and when the weather warms up without the tights and with cute sandals. I can’t stress enough just how many dresses I have just like this one that I pull over my head in the morning when I can’t imagine having to pick jeans, a shirt and shoes.
This bright yellow dress is gorgeous and probably my next investment. This Michael by Michael Kors dress is perfect to wear for your extra long days. You can wear it to class, wear it to dinner and then wear it out at night. At most, you might need to change from flats to heels to make it work but even that’s a stretch. At $129.50, I think it’s totally worth the value.
These are two of my favorite dresses. Have fun looking for your favorites!
