STORY BY HANNAH LITTLE
As winter melts into spring, I find myself wearing the weirdest outfits in public. Because any given day can either have a -30 degree wind chill or 80 degree weather with sunshine, deciding what to wear is impossible.
Sometimes, my outfits aren’t so bad — an oversized t-shirt, leggings, and Sperry’s.
Most of the time, however, I am just too lazy to even try to look pulled together and I end up going out in public in running shorts, a sweatshirt and Uggs.
I have a suspicion that I am not the only person who is making regrettable fashion decisions this spring.
This hunch is based on the fact that I have seen several of my fellow Bulldogs walking around in outfits that resemble my own.
I’d like to share my personal collection of my favorite ugly spring looks.
My go to outfit for running to the C-store is the classic Uggs with running shorts look. Personally, I like to wear this look when I am out of leggings and it is warm enough to sport bare legs.
To properly rock this look, I recommend wearing neon running shorts with a pair of beaten up Uggs from middle school. It is not necessary, but an oversized crewneck sweater pairs well with this look.
Another one of my staple outfits consists of shorts, a Northface and rain boots. Rainy weather is inevitable in Iowa and when it begins to drizzle rain boots are a necessity.
Rain tends to make me cold, so I rely on my trusty Northface to keep me warm.
The shorts are worn out of wishful thinking and not practicality.
No outfit is complete without Birkenstock sandals with socks. Spring marks the beginning of occasionally warm weather, so, naturally, sandals are a must.
Sometimes it is too cold to wear sandals without covering your toes with a protective layer. I prefer wearing neon or patterned socks with my Birks, but any type of sock is acceptable.
As warmer weather approaches, I look forward to sunshine and ditching my Uggs, but until then, my horrible sense of style will continue.
