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!

Batter Up! | Fanatics*

Ever since I was a young girl, I have had a fascination with baseball. I played in my front yard with my brothers and dad all the time, there was even a time that I wanted to be the first female pitcher in the MLB. The season currently ended which is upsetting as the Red Sox or Orioles did not make to the World Series. Even though baseball is over, you can support your favorite team by heading over to Fanatics.Untitled #190

 

I picked my favorite team, Red Sox, to be the major inspiration for my outfit. I tried to match the color scheme, maybe a little too much. For the top, I picked a simple blue baseball tee for the whole outfit not to be too crazy. Jean shorts are a perfect type of bottom for a hot day at the ballpark. I choose a flannel to help bring out the red B in the hat. I would like to wear the red flannel wrapped around my waist as it will give a laidback look. The silver bracelet gives the outfit a bit of a girly flair but not too much to make it seem like they belong at a party than a baseball game. The converse give it the ultimate ballpark feel and makes me excited for next season!
 Make sure you check out Fanatic’s large selection of baseball hats and go support your favorite teams with MLB_hats!

Daisy Summer | OOTD

My friend, Kelly and I headed out to downtown Annapolis yesterday after noon for 2 hours worth of a photoshoot (more like an hour of pictures). We are the type of girls who like to take artsy pictures and always trying to take cool pictures so that is what we did. I am not sure that she would like to have her pictures upon my blog so I would like to share my outfit of yesterday. IMG_3102 IMG_3111 IMG_3112 IMG_3116 IMG_3118 IMG_3124 IMG_3125 IMG_3131

Daisies are the biggest floral trend this year! Daises are everywhere, on shorts, skirts, dress, tops, hair accessories and obviously in the ground. My daisy shorts are fun and dressy are the same time. Despite it being a nice day yesterday (and foolish to wear all black) it was extremely hot. The shorts were full yet short to give it a cool feeling. I wore an all black crop top to go with the shorts which did not make me feel constricted. Not seen in these photo, but the back of the crop top have a cut out to show a little bit of skin and not to feel so sweaty as I was yesterday. I wore tan heeled sandals from Steve Madden which have been my favorite shoe in the summer! I absolutely love black shoes but I do not want to wear a really dark shoe when I could wear them in the fall or winter and I would wear a lot of black. P.S. do not jump from a high landing (like the last picture above) when your wearing heels or you can possibly twist a heel or it would be worse (nothing happened but it just scared me). These are the shoes that make my feet feel free and I just love them! Here is a picture of an actual daisy! Enjoy!

True Blue | OOTD

Hey everyone! So school is officially out for the summer and since I thought that since I do not have to study anymore, why not put up a post tonight? There would be another later talking about my experience throughout the past school year so before that I want to show you guys what I wore for Memorial Day. Memorial Day was over a week ago and I got really into the spirit with the blues. I loved my outfit because I am starting to become more comfortable with my skin that I am showing a bit with the mesh like lace detailing. Blue is pretty much most of the colors that I have in closet that is not very “I can’t wear that to the pool!” way. I am not a red person, I never knew why also my skin has reds in it which doesn’t really flatter me in anyway. I will say that I did put too much blue on this outfit, not the best idea but I loved it and it was very Patriotic. I miss how in my old town, everyone would come to the middle of town for the parade, which I happened to be in twice, and I loved how much everyone got really into the whole thing. I suggest putting your hair in a braid on very hot day, which I did right after. And everyone, this is my puppy Camden before her major haircut.

Coachella Bound| OOTD

Yes I should be studying but of course I do not want to.  So I decided to dress up for this pretty almost summer days before spending the rest of the day pretty much inside. Although Coachella has been over for a while now and sadly I wish I could go, I recently styled an outfit that I probably would wear to the music festival as it is very boho chic.
