How to Rock Athleisure in the Classroom

I am about to start my second year of college and to me that means one thing - I have basically mastered the art of pulling myself together in the morning in 30 minutes or less because really what is with 8 am's (???). The one thing that got me through all last year not looking like a disaster, even when I felt like one, is athleisure. The trend that has taken us all by storm has become my go-to classroom look. This year I headed to DICK’s Sporting Goods® to find my staple pieces I can rock all year long. 

The keys to athleisure are: comfort, neutral colors and basics that can be mixed and matched. I actually have a whole section of my closest dedicated to leggings, pullovers and slip on shoes all of which fit into those categories. My pullover and slides, both from DICK's, are the perfect basics for any outfit plus they can be thrown on last minute and still look as stylish as ever with a pair of jeans like mine.

Back To School + Office Depot and OfficeMax


       Feeling confident on the first day of class is really important to me. This year it is even more important as I enter into my first year of college. Let me tell you guys... I am a nervous wreck! But thanks to Office Depot and OfficeMax I have my school supplies checked off the list. Not only do I have all the supplies I need at great low prices, but I also have them in fun and fresh designs that fit a fashion lover like me. It was a one stop shop to get everything I needed and I love the selection this year at their stores.

     I have glammed this semester thanks to the Divoga® Gold Struck fashion collection. (I mean honestly fashion is in the name guys... how perfect!) I picked out their blue folder, camo print notebook, double sided pencil pouch and a composition book. I also did a little DIY to take this years school supplies one step further.

       One thing I have realized over the years is planners can be quite pricey. This year on a college budget I decided to take my adorable composition book and turn it into a planner. To do this you need: Washi tape, a colored sharpie, variety of mini sticky notes, and a composition book. I found all of these things at Office Depot and OfficeMax! I taped the sticky notes to the inside cover and labeled each one with the task I wanted it to represent! Then I wrote the week at the top of the page and then the dates along the side giving each day four lines of space (enough to fit the sticky note). Thats it! An easy DIY planner that is customized to your needs.
