Merry 1st of May everyone! It may be May but I have dug out my old tights yet again due to New York’s unpredictable spring weather. It may be chilly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress for spring, you just need a few extra layers. This is one of my favorite ASOS Curve dresses which I purchased last spring, all my friends have seen me in this dress during all seasons because its so versatile to dress up or dress down. Here I was on my way to class so I paired it with flats and my favorite jean jacket! I just made a few purchases from ASOS’ spring sale and I have some new pieces I’m really excited to share, stay tuned!
What I’m Wearing: Dress- ASOS Curve, Jean Jacket- Old Navy, Skinny Belt- ASOS Curve, Black Flats- TUK via Torrid, bag- Cambridge Satchel, Glasses- coastal.com, flower pin- Forever 21, Lipstick- Maybelline SuperStay 10 hr gloss in 120

As a grad student, most of my weekdays I dress very casual. Here I’m wearing a t-shirt from Forever21, and my favorite jeggings from Calvin Klein. A great way to revamp the classic jeans, sneakers and a t-shirt look is to add on a blazer. I love vintage blazers and this hot pink one was a $9 fabulous find at a salvation army in Philadelphia. My favorite thing to look for at thrift stores are blazers. Try everything on and ignore the size on the tag, the important thing is that the arms fit (every plus-sized princess knows there’s nothing worse than having a jacket that’s too tight on the arms… ugh so uncomfortable)! My new school bag is from Cambridge Satchel and my sunglasses are Prada.
