February Fashion

Ever wake up in the morning and think, “OH SHI-pstad! What am I wearing today?”

I’m sure as much as we would love to fall out of bed and go to class looking as fierce as Queen Bey or as fabulous as Kate Middleton, most of us don’t have the time or motivation to try to look like we sell our souls to a personal stylist every day.

Let’s face it: it’s a darn satisfactory day if whatever we’ve scrambled on this morning is remotely clean and/or matching, even if we are hypothetically functioning adults.

Celebrity culture and media has gotten our youth obsessed with looking “sexy” and “perfect” all the time. But fortunately the more I look around our campus, the more I notice that in real life we all are pretty stylin’ without worrying about looking like supermodels anyways. Which is the wonderful thing about being in real life!

So ladies and gents, check out the February fashion I spotted and how the lovely models of University of Portland describe their style:
