Campus Obsessions

Each year, the trends (or obsessions!) change drastically! For example, freshmen year we just had to have a Vera Bradley backpack (and accessories…available at many on-campus bookstores) and this year there are simply more important things for a college student to rock (like American Apparel V-necks, eye-popping scarves and feathers in our hair.)  Trends aren’t just for apparel, though.

Everyone got Twitter accounts last year, and this year we are tweeting up a storm! With Twitter we all feel like celebrities. We tweet anything and everything, even to-the-minute details like if we flossed, or forgot to, and people actually read it.

Even though followers can’t see you tweeting, it’s still important to look good going to class. Let it be known that I am a boot junkie and not ashamed of it! You can spice up any outfit with a great pair of boots. We love rain boots in bright colors to make rainy days a little more fun.  They work really well in the snow too if you put those fuzzy insert things in them… (I don’t know what they’re called!) If you have unlimited access to your parents’ funds then go with Hunters, otherwise many on-campus bookstores have great rain boot options! And for those beautiful fall days without snow or rain, who wouldn’t love to wear Tory Burch boots? Actually, who wouldn’t love anything Tory Burch to take you from ordinary student to glamorous fraternity socialite?

Sometimes being fraternity socialites just isn’t enough for us though, and we crave a little more entertainment. When we do, there is nothing more fun than to hunker down in our Victoria’s Secret PINK campus sweats with a large popcorn and watch those housewives! Our obsession with housewives started with Desperate Housewives but now it has expanded to the Real Housewives (Real Housewives of Orange County, Real Housewives of New York City, etc.). We love hearing about their juicy drama and plastic surgeries gone wrong. They have everything money can buy (and more), and though we would NOT want to be them, we do love to take a break from our own reality and live vicariously through them!

Unlike the Housewives with nothing to do but socialize and shop, being college students we have insane schedules. We stay up all night socializing and then up all day studying. So, having a good caffeine source is a must. Starbucks is always a good option, but this year we have a new coffee obsession. We love iced lattes in those cute little glass bottles.

Jump on board with these obsessions and find out why we love them so much!
