College Essentials: Cold Weather

Hey everyone!

I got an email the other day from someone requesting a post on what to wear when the weather gets cold in college.  She told me she is a freshman, and at her school (much like mine!), most girls wear shorts and a t-shirt to class when it's warm outside.  But, now that it's getting colder, it's important to stay warm while still looking cute for class.  College fashion, at least where I go to school, is about all being casual during the day.  I've put together some items that are most commonly worn on my campus by girls in the winter.  Keep in mind that you should ALWAYS wear whatever makes you the most comfortable--this is just how I stay comfortable and cute while going to class!

I'll start off with the most important part of any college girl's wardrobe--leggings.  Where I go to school, they're a denim replacement during the day.  Leggings are SO much more comfortable for when you have to sit through a long day of classes, and if you wear a big t-shirt (which I always do), it's completely appropriate.  
Now, people all over my campus wear NorthFace or Patagonia jackets and vests.  I have plenty of jackets, but I'm DYING for a vest.  (It's on my Christmas list this year ;) )  Either the jackets and vests or a big chunky sweater can keep you cozy all winter.  Just throw on a big knit scarf and you'll be in heaven--trust me!
Finally, riding boots.  These are my savior for days when I don't want to wear tennis shoes.  You can get them expensive or inexpensive, and they have them most places that carry shoes this time of year.  

I hope you all enjoyed this, and I hope it helped some of you!

  1. Great choices - I'm on the lookout for a nice pair of riding boots at the moment! Boots and chunky scarves are my favourite cold weather pieces!


    1. Mine too! I love my riding boots--lots of department states in the US have them!

  2. Really cute choices! How do you make a collage like that? -Emmy

  3. I love these choices, and I'm now really starting to want a pair of riding boots!

    Have a beautiful day


    1. I love my riding boots! I wear them all the time!

  4. My fave thing to wear when it gets cold? The duvet! I'm generally freezing because I wear riding boots to actually go out riding in...winter is bad for stable girls...I like to come home, shower and snuggle in with a book or my laptop.

  5. Hey! I got your comments on my blog, thanks for stopping by and saying a few words. So many people are having such a hard time right now just living and managing their lives. I've gotten so many similar comments from people in the last few months. We all need to just take a break and live a little. Breathe. Life's too short. I wish it was easier said than done though.

    Anyway, I love this post of yours. Cool weather has been here for a while in Chicago so my sweaters have gotten put to a ton of use already. I love that really loose, flowy shirt with the scarf on the left. It's definitely my fave.

    I hope your week goes well!

  6. good choice and I love the fact you improvised to wear a long shirt with leggings. It's appropriate and won't make you feel uncomfortable. even through under a sweater dress that either fees like a tunic is a great top to wear with leggings.

    I love wearing my riding boots, a pair of knit tights(most of the time I'm always wearing a dress or knit shorts), and my peacoat.


  7. Great post!! I am also on the look for a nice vest!! =D


  8. Omg you’re making me hungry, it looks so yummy!
