WHAT TO WEAR: Library

Although the calendar says it is officially springtime, the Midwest weather hasn’t quite caught up yet. I am desperately missing the beautiful sun that I was able to soak up on our week off of school. But Spring Break has come and gone, and unfortunately it is time to hit the books again.

Here at Michigan State, the weather has at least warmed up enough that we don’t have to bundle up in a parka for the walk to class! Well, at least not every day of the week. When Mother Nature is being so indecisive, it can be hard to make decisions regarding your outfit. So, what do you wear when you’re headed out on campus for the day?

This Fashionista does a great job of choosing a simple, versatile outfit for her trip to the library. It can be tricky to put together an outfit that will work for both the chilly mornings and sunny afternoons, but some light layering will do the trick on a warmer day. Her jacket adds style (denim trend, anyone?) while also maintaining comfort with a soft sleeve. We all know the need for coziness when it comes to library study sessions. Leggings are a lazy girl’s best friend as well, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Try mixing it up with a pattern the way this Fashionista did.

The best way to personalize a casual outfit such as this is by adding some jewelry, and what could be more personalized than a monogram necklace? On her wrist, this Fashionista stacks some Alex and Ani pieces. This bangle might give you the inspiration you need to keep on studying!

One Simple Change: If the weather isn’t warm enough on your campus for this look yet, you can easily add some extra layers to handle the cold weather. Just swap the Converse for some boots and add a cute beanie and scarf! A blanket scarf doubles as a perfect pillow if you get stuck pulling an all-nighter at the library.
