Sorority Recruitment Outfits

Hello! Long time, no see! I am currently trying to get back into blogging and possibly YouTube so please bare with me.

As I finished my Freshman Year of college, I am preparing for my Sophomore Year. I have decided that I would Rush during my first few weeks back at school. I have watched SO many, not an exaggeration, ‘sorority outfits and what to expect videos’ to get an idea of the process. I am currently rematching the TV show “Greek” and reading blogs which makes me more excited about the whole thing!

I will be providing an idea of what I might possibly wear during the rounds and hope you get some inspiration from them as well!.

Round 1and 2: This round is when you are in your groups and visit each sorority house. Usually it takes 2 days for each round, depending on how many houses there are. This day requires you to wear the shirt that you were given with cute shorts or skirt and comfortable walking shoes.

 I found these shorts from Francesca’s so make sure to find a pair that will match your t shirts. I am in to flowy shorts because it is going to be extremely hot and I hate the feeling of sweaty jean shorts. You will need to find shorts that are appropriate and great to make a first impression so no rips and no short shorts.
I picked shorts over skirts because me and skirts/dresses do not have the best relationship because they always tend to fly up :).

Round 3: For my school, this is the Philanthropy round. It is different for every school so make sure to learn what the schedule is. This round is where you dress up a bit, wear a cute little sundress and some heels (preferably wedges) that you can possibly walk in. You will be able to learn about each of their philanthropy and their activities.

All these dresses are from Lulus. I have been obsessed with the cold shoulder look so the first 2 I absolutely love. Some are casual sundresses, some are more fancier, I think it depends on how you are feeling that day.

Round 4: Preference is the time where you need to be the most dressiest. It is the final round during recruitment where you will visit the final 2 houses. This is a really important round so you want to be your best and look your best. You will need to find a cocktail style dress and a nice pair heels.

All these dresses are also from Lulus. Yes, I absolutely love the trend of off the shoulder. These are some of my picks and I might end up getting the purple one. I have been told that the active sisters wear black so try to stay away from that the best you can.

Round 5: Bid Day is the last day of Rush where after everything, you will find out what sorority gave you a bid. This is the most exciting day and most comfortable outfit by wearing a tank top, gym shorts and running shoes because you might have to run far to your new house!

I hope you are excited for Rush as much as I am and I hope I helped with inspiration on what to wear. I will try to create a blogpost on what I end up wearing.

Don’t be nervous, have fun, and be yourself!

Until next time!

Self Love | OOTD

2015-12-13 02.32.03

Don’t worry guys, I am still here. And there is something that I have been meaning to talk about and it is about self-esteem. For about 17 years or so of my life, I never felt comfortable about the way I looked, the way I acted or anything about myself.  I always cared what people thought about me and that really had hurt me as a person and I have lived in a terrible state because of it.

Within the past year, I learned that people may have opinions, but I learned that it is how I react to them. Because of their opinions, I blamed pretty much horrible thing in my life and theirs on me. But I discovered that was not true.

I was in a relationship in the beginning, which ended not even after 3 weeks, which made me realize that I put myself in that situation because I did not love myself enough. That the only reason I became friends with mean and disloyal people is because I did not like myself at all and that was the reason that it put me in such a terrible state for so long, it is because I thought I deserved it.

I learned that if I want a happy life, that I have to create a positive outlook towards it and not a depressing one I had for so long. There will be days that I will get depressed about myself with my nose being too big and not looking like other girls and looking like a child with my chubby cheeks but I have to remind myself that God created me because I am different and beautiful in my own way. Happiness is about appreciating the things that you cannot change and accepting them. Find the beauty in little things because they are there for a reason.

My depressed state was created by my thoughts and could only be changed by them. Happiness is a weird and scared feeling for me but I will bear with it because it is better than what I had felt.

Let go of that boy who is going to flirt with other girls and let go of those friends who cannot see how amazing you are. Love yourself because you cannot be anyone else.

My Halloween Costume

If you have ever been a senior in high school, you will understand the struggle on catching up with the time and personal lives due to the many projects and college applications to do. Here is my Halloween costume from like 3 weeks ago. Instead of going out, I had fun at work as a creepy doll when people thought I was literally just 12 years old.

Mixing with Plaid | OOTD

For some silly reason, I did not get pictures of all my outfits when I started work. I wish I did. But here is one that I got pictures with because I thought it was unique and fun!

I absolutely love the textures on this skirt, it has a few different colors but the main color is the burgundy color which is my favorite for fall. I also picked this plaid top from my work the other week, fighting with my co-worker who would get it (I obviously bought it without her knowing). I did not know it was a blouse but I love the dark blue with the deep red color. My booties are also suede so it gives that kind of 70’s feel to it as well.

Homecoming 2015

My last ever homecoming dance was last week and I had the most fun time ever! We had taken pictures, went out to dinner and tried to get to the dance fashionably late to seem cool, since we’re seniors, but only ended up 5 minutes after the dance had started.

For my dress, I wanted something more sophisticated and mature since I am 18 for Pete’s sake. I picked this dress from Free People with white under lay with blue lace. I choose suede gray heels because I felt like it would look amazing and it is different.

Job Interview | OOTD

In your teenage years, there comes a time when you have your first interview for a potential job. I had filled out an application for a store this past weekend, and within an hour, I had received a call and an interview had been scheduled. I wanted to make a good first impression so I needed a new outfit for my interview. I went to the boutique and found so many beautiful pieces to wear. I eventually created this outfit for my interview.
