I  completed my undergraduate degree in Canada, so I have experienced my fair share of cold weather! I also studied in a pretty intense program, which consequently led me to purchase clothing that was both comfortable and warm! The outfit above consists of a typical outfit that I would wear throughout my undergraduate degree, in the colder months. 

I purchased this North Face vest and this tote from H&M on a whim, but instantly became obsessed with them and wore them often! I have worn the bag to death because I find that it is the perfect size to hold my laptop, a binder and my personal items, such as my wallet. In my undergraduate degree I usually drove to campus and parked relatively close to my classes, so I could get away with wearing a vest a majority of the time. If the weather was colder, I would often switch into my favorite French Connection wool coat (similar here... I usually order a size smaller in the "boyfriend" style coats/jackets). 

The boots above are by-far my most favorite casual pair. Riding boots are perfect for day-to-day wear, and definitely "fit-in" the university/college setting. In addition, the scarf I'm wearing above is also made of a quite versatile material that can be worn outdoors and indoors - I usually don't take my scarf off at school. I was never a fan of wearing sweat-pants to school and often opted for a dark wash jean such as this black one, and to pull it all together I would frequently opt for a nicer blouse. In the colder months my lip color would always be of a darker shade, and I always kept my jewelry quite casual as well - I like to wear a few small pieces of finer jewelry simply for their durability since, as a science major, I washed my hands frequently. I also often wore my hair up since I had to do a lot of laboratory work. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and I look forward to checking in soon!

What are your favorite pieces to wear to school?
