I'm a skirt rather than jeans type of gal...
The weather has become increasingly chilly these days and living next to the beach has only amplified any form of cold in the atmosphere (ie- the air is extremely frosty and the wind is like ice on my face). Of course, it's probably not as bad as it is in the East Coast where thick, fur-lined coats and gloves are a necessity. Thus, it was only natural for me to gravitate towards my section of skirts in my ever-so-tiny dorm closet--if anyone knows me, I'm a girl who would wear skirts and dresses 24/7 rather than jeans.
As I am slowly gaining that Freshman 15 (myth/fact that claims students in college gain 15+ lbs in their first year), my jeans are becoming more tight and the struggle to pull and close them around my waist has become a battle far too exasperating to participate in, especially when I am running late for class.
With that being said, I've compiled three different looks with three of some of my favorite skirts that I have actually worn on three consecutive days (Whew! That was a mouthful). Seriously, if there is any opportunity for me not to wear jeans, I will take it. Keeping the weather in mind, I layered each skirt with toasty long-sleeves, scarves, and jackets as well as a pair of leggings and tights to preserve the heat in my legs and protect them from the wind. My mom always taught me that in order to stay warm, I should always cover up my neck, so I've been using scarves and turtlenecks to my advantage--thanks mom!
Each outfit was paired with a variety of accessories and my new boots (that still need breaking in T.T).
I hope this gives you some inspiration for future days in the fall/winter weather! Remember, you can always change up these outfits to fit your style-- add a beanie, wear flats or sneakers, add more layers, etc...
Have a great holiday season and good luck to all taking finals!
