Where to go and what to wear!?!...Read on for help!
So, you like to travel...
Let's assume that you actually do want to broaden your horizons, I'll bet
you want to look fabulous in the process! So, here in the United States,
we're currently experiencing the winter season (as well as winter weather!),
but you want to check out this really cool college in the next state this
weekend. Just try to remember that the weather will be pretty similar to
what you are living in now, but a few degress make all the difference in the
world. This is a road trip, whether it's with your parents or friends, it's
a road trip. You don't have a lot of space for trunks of clothes, and you'll
only be away for three days at the most. While you are visiting this
college, you'll be meeting faculty members and students; taking tests and
experiencing nightlife; touring the campus and the town. In these few days,
you want to give off an aura of maturity, amiability, seriousness...you just
don't want to look like a high school student, tourist, or someone that
"tried too hard."
Now you must decide, WHAT TO WEAR??? Remembering that you are still in the
dead of winter, and so is your neighboring state, you begin to pack. You'll
pack light, pack for every occasion, and we'll pack in preparation for the
unexpected. But, since you're only planning to be away for about three days,
it would be gross to wear the same article of clothing in such a short time
span. Let's just cut to the chase. Here's what you need to take for your
weekend at a prospective college (as well as the trip to and fro):
*Wear something comfortable for the actual trip.
Meeting administrators and faculty: dark pants, cardigan twinset, small
purse, nice shoes
Meeting students: dark pants-boot cut, sweater, nice shoes & jean skirt-not
too short, tank, hoodie, comfy shoes
Night on the town: dark pants or jeans, tank or halter, cardigan, use common
sense when deciding which shoes to wear...
Day on the town: long skirt or jeans, 3/4 sleeve shirt, hoodie, comfy shoes
This is just a basic outline, you can't go wrong with this fashion menu.
You won't look like you even had to think twice about what to wear, you'll
look great! This doesn't have to aplpy to college, it can go for almost any
semi-business related trip. You won't be taking anymore than the equivilant
of two bags of stuff, and it'll look like you traveled with your entire
closet. Ladies, I'm confident that you realize the paramountcy of
accessorizing-so I won't mention it. Wear basic make up, take the minimal
amount of hair equipment, and make sure your nails are pretty.
Most of all, good luck with your futures, girls. Study for your SATs, apply
to college early, don't wait until the last minute and I'd love to hear
about any of your travel experiences, to college, to France, or to the moon!
Until next time Chica Travelers....
Amor Y Paz,
