Whether we like it or not, there’s no denying the fact that we’ve reached what I like to call the academic point of no return this semester. Such a time period calls for endless reading, an overwhelming amount of vanilla macchiatos and attempts to memorize almost a semester’s worth of chemistry equations (yawn)! In my experience as a teaching assistant, I’ve found that one simple trick can totally turn these otherwise drab student duties into something unexpectedly productive: study groups! What on earth could be better that collaborating with peers who are facing the exact same challenges as you are (mastering the art of business math included)? But before you rush off to your next study group donning your prized yoga gear, pause a moment, for first impressions are absolutely crucial. It’s safe to say that some of the key connections we make happen at completely unexpected times, so there’s no harm in always putting your best foot forward (preferably with Celine loafers).
Lingering around the library, I spotted this eclectic Fashionista who was coincidentally on her way to a study group of her very own. While fuzzy sweats may sound like a dream, most often the comfort fleece provides can be found in more eye-catching pieces instead. For your next study sesh, take some pointers from this Fashionista and opt for a vintage inspired maxi skirt. Other than being totally perfect for spring, maxi skirts might just be more comfortable than a pair of leggings, but are perfect for adding that extra ooomph to any look! And if you constantly stress over adding that certain je ne sais quoi to your everyday ensembles, look no further than this Fashionista’s mastery of the art of pattern mixing. While it may seem a little intimidating to sport two patterns at once, when chosen from similar color families, mixing prints is a simple task. As it’s customary for libraries to feel like the frozen food section of grocery stores, follow in the manner of this wise Fashionista and sport a classic cropped cardigan. Top the look off with your favorite pair of ankle strap flats and you’ll have executed a look oh so perfect for an afternoon spent studying!
One Simple Change: Venturing off to a music festival this weekend? No worries! Swap the cardigan and blouse for a fun cropped top and embrace the spring season!
