sisterhood: recruitment style - part one

I've been really tired lately and falling asleep so quickly that I never end up posting what I have set up for the next day.  Since I wasn't able to post on Wednesday or Thursday, I will be posting the Friday post I had planned and the two sorority recruitment entries that never made it live on time.

So sorry!  But on with the show!...

Each round of recruitment has a certain dress code.  The first round requires that all girls going through the process wears that year's recruitment shirt with jeans and boots or flats.  The second round is more casual, though that doesn't mean to throw on a graphic tee and ripped jeans.  The best way to describe it {in my opinion} - wear an outfit that you would want to wear to your first day of class.  Your best fitting jeans, a nice shirt - knit or otherwise, and a comfortable and cute pair of boots or flats is probably the best way to go.

Each round, the dress code will get progressively more formal.  I would describe the dress code as "trendy business casual".  I wouldn't say pull out a suit, but you could most certainly wear pieces of those suits separately with heels and a fun printed silk blouse.

{A helpful tip} Don't wear your heels all day.  If you're in cold climate like Syracuse, wearing heels or wedges from house-to-house will not be comfortable, especially since each round lengthens in time spent at a sorority.  Bring your Uggs and change before you walk in the door and right when you walk out.  Along with your winter coat {Really, it's OK if you don't wear that super cute and super expensive peacoat.  Sisters will understand; they don't want you to freeze!}, bring a scarf and gloves to keep you warm as you travel between parties.  And don't forget bring a snack, like a granola bar, just in case hunger pangs start before lunch time or dinner.

Whatever outfit you choose to wear, be sure that it represents you and your style - not the sorority you think you want to be a part of.
