As freshmen, we all fill our closets with tons of items in our school colors. Then, once we graduate, we wonder what do with it all! Luckily for Lindsey, her school colors – blue and white – can be easily incorporated to a “non-college-campus” wardrobe. (Although she actually doesn’t have to worry about that anytime soon – ah, freshmen are so lucky!)

Elements of Lindsey’s Outfit
1. Stylish School Pride
Lindsey stands out in a sea of blue and white tees and shorts in this J. Crew Factory skirt, while still showing her school pride. The bright blue stripes are also perfect for spring. This skirt could easily be dressed up à la Lindsay, or dressed down for a more casual look for class.

Ah, pearls – a Southern girl staple! Lindsey adds more interest to this classic by really piling them on – the more, the better in this case. This touch of sophistication fits well with her classic look.
3. Classic Watch
Lindsey’s watch is timeless (no pun intended), and will ensure she makes it to class on time – and in style!
