There is more to life than Uggs and a Northface





Head to Toe: T-shirt, Thrifted; Sweater, American Eagle (gift); Jeans, TJ Maxx; Necklace, Fashion Bug; Oxfords, F21; Bag, Gift.

No, I am not leaving for vacation and packing a week's worth of clothes. The enormity of my bag is simply due to the ridiculous load of books I needed to schlep to class Wednesday. Speaking of school, let me explain the meaning of today's blog title. It's that time of year when all one can see far and wide on a college campus is a sea of Uggs and Northfaces. Don't get me wrong, I love my Uggs, and I do own a Northface...but it feels like everyone is wearing a uniform every day. Love those cozy boots? Try furry, Eskimo boots or flat riding boots. And try swapping that fleece jacket a few days a week for a pea coat or fur-lined hoody. A little change never hurt anybody!

  1. I have to admit, I lived in my UGGs last fall, but I did just buy myself two new pairs of a little bit more stylish boots and I can't wait to wear them! :)

  5. I agree wholeheartedly with you! I would not buy either for the longest time just because EVERYONE was wearing them all the time! I eventually did break down and get them though. Love the outfit :)

  9. AS much as I try to avoid Uggs for myself, I have to at some point admit that it's so functional to have a pair. I love your oxford shoes!

  10. Awwww but I think thats the great thing about style! Every type should be nourished and not too considered, after all fashion isnt the end all or be all of anythig really =) Just have fun with it i say! Whether that it is in uggs and a north face or not ^_^

  16. this is a cute outfit! love the olive with the blue and gray and of course those oxfords are adorable! and yes, nothing wrong with uggs sometimes. but i notice that if i just switch out my uggs for a cute pair of boots it does make all the difference in the world. but man, those uggs are warm and snuggly!
