Grad School Outfits

first day on campus!

One of my goals in starting grad school was to dress nicely. I began caring about my hair and outfit choices when I started working in the Cru office, and wanted to continue to look presentable in my master’s program.

I thought it was necessary, as an “I’m a professional” and “this is a business move” type of decision, but it turns out plenty of my classmates still wear leggings and a t-shirt to class some days. I love having the freedom to not worry about my makeup when I need to head out the door quickly, or being able to cozy up in a sweatshirt on a test day, but I have been trying to care about my appearance most days.

I thought it would be fun to document my outfits since I now have a FULL-LENGTH mirror in this house, something I always thought would be nice to have in my old place but was too lazy to go out and buy. So anyways, not that I’m an inspiring fashionista or anything, but it’s always fun to see other people’s style choices, right?
