College Life: A Look Back

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the end for me at Florida State University. I cannot believe how fast these past three years have gone & knowing that I have only six more months left in Tallahassee makes me think about how much has changed within that short amount of time.

When I was a college freshman, I picked my major because it was something I was passionate about but I had no idea what I wanted to do with it. When I started, I was leaning towards becoming a buyer but within my first year toyed with the ideas of styling or working for a magazine. It wasn’t until after I launched FSU Fashion Girl & started interning that I realized that I wanted to get into more the the PR/marketing & social media side of fashion. I still believe that it is so important that college students pick a major that they are passionate about. There is not a doubt in my mind that I picked the right major for me.

Throughout the years, I have met so many different people that I have been lucky to call my friends. My advice to incoming freshman is to embrace these new friendships & try to meet as many people as you can. It is truly amazing what you can learn from those who are different from you. You can also learn a lot about yourself by looking at the people you may not get along with & really trying to figure out why. After college, stay in touch with everyone. A lot of my friends graduated last year & it has been really fun for me to see where they are all ending up – where they are living, working, etc. We are so blessed to live in the Facebook generation which makes it entirely too easy to keep in touch – utilize this.

My last piece of advice for incoming freshman is to embrace the new. College students are handed opportunities that a lot of others would kill to have. Experience everything you can. If someone invites you to something that isn’t necessarily “your thing,” do it anyways. You may surprise yourself. If you get the opportunity to intern in another state or country, do it! I cannot even begin to express how much that experience will teach you about yourself, both on a personal & professional level. Most importantly, have fun! These next four years will fly by faster than you know.

College Life: Gameday Fashion

Only one more week until the first football game of the season which means it is time to start planning the perfect game day outfit! I have selected four gameday outfits which are perfect no matter what your style is.

1. The Sporty Girl. The first look is a classic college football gameday outfit. It pairs short shorts with my favorite mesh football jersey for girls made by Victoria’s Secret PINK. They added this item to their collegiate line mid-football season last year & hopefully they will be launching a new mesh jersey for fall.

2. The Girly Girl. A lot of girls like to wear dresses to football games. It is an easy way too look cute while also staying cool on a hot afternoon. I searched the internet and found this gameday dress made by Natalie Kim to by my all-time favorite. Absolutely perfect outfit when paired with the FSU collegiate clutch  by Oatmeal Lace Design. You can also make your own gameday t-shirt dress to really be unique & show your spirit!

3. The Prep with a Twist. I love this look for night games, cooler games, & most importantly, the FSU blackout game! Pair the VS PINK cardigan with lace leggings & either black or garnet shorts for a preppy gameday look. Pair with the Lady Vanderbilt for Her Campus FSU necklace & you are good to go!

4. The Free Spirit. I love this look for hot afternoon football games. Throw on a garnet tube top (try the one size fits all Niki Biki tube tops from Repeat Possessions) and cut up a gold FSU t-shit to make a muscle tank. Cut the armholes large enough so that the pop of garnet shows through. Pair with your favorite pair of shorts & gladiator sandals & you are good to go!

More accessories featured above: Beaded FSU Bracelet & FSU Ribbon & Pearl Necklace

What will you be sporting for the first football game of the season? I have been selected to be the official Victoria’s Secret PINK gameday style spotter so make sure you are looking cute & you just might get featured on the VS PINK website!

Home Decor: Decor 2 Ur Door FSU Bedding

Earlier this year, I featured an amazing site which carried creative and fun dorm room bedding & accessories. Decor 2 Ur Door now offers bedding specifically designed for Florida State seminoles. What I love about this collegiate bedding is that it doesn’t scream FSU yet would tie in perfectly with a roommate who swears by decorating the room in complete garnet & gold or just showing your school spirit.

For all of you non-seminoles, this same bedding is available in other colors upon request. They also offer a variety of different collections including sorority bedding!

Head on over to Decor 2 Ur Door today to purchase the FSU bedding set.

The magazine is published semiannually: once during the spring and once during the fall. Clutch Magazine and members of the Collegiate Merchandising Association are currently preparing for the release of the Spring 2010 issue which went to print earlier today.

College Life: VS PINK Mesh Football Jerseys

vspinkfsujerseyAt football games, guys really have it easy. Throw on your teams jersey and you are good to go.

Girls? Not so much.

Although many sports clothing companies have tried their best to cater to women, I have found that the VS Pink Collegiate Collection has the most form-fitting and flattering college wear at the moment.

For over a year, they have provided select colleges with clothing that allows girls to show off their school spirit while at the same time, looking cute. Before VS Pink came out with the Collegiate Collection, many girls were stuck with trying to pull off over-sized trash bags as “sweatshirts.” Now they can easily buy a college sweatshirt that fits them thanks to the collegiate collection. Ahh! Now VS Pink has gone one step further by coming up with another much needed college item, mesh football jerseys. T-shirts are nice to wear to football games but there is no better way to show that you are a TRUE football fan then by wearing your schools jersey. Local bookstores in Tallahassee carry a mesh football jersey for women but they always seem to be out of stock. Also, the VS Pink jersey only costs $42.50 where I have seen others for as much as $55.00. Definitely seems worth the money to me!

You can purchase your Florida State Jersey here!
