Pretty sure you aren’t ready to hear the words “Back To School.”
Well, I won’t apologize just yet!
If you’re in college, thinking about what to wear to class is the last thing on your mind. You’re worrying about the cost of books, semester credits, and that weird thing your roommate does in her sleep. Side note, my college roommate was a sleepwalker and totally tried to smother me with a pillow one night…she managed to wake up before my untimely death. FYI: we’re still friends but that’s neither here nor there so I’ll just move right along 🙂
Is there a better way to take your mind off all of those stressful college things than clothes?! Personally, I think not! Previously, I created a“Back To School Bag Guide” for every type of student, better known as the “Bag” To School Guide for any budget. This year, I wanted help my fellow book hoarders with outfit ideas.
First up: DENIM! Plus size jeans (denim) don’t have to be expensive (just like everything else in the mall.) They’re perfect for dressing up, dressing down and anything in between.
All are easy to shop for, affordable, on trend, and totally suitable for going back to class! Be sure to add your own touches to make each look personalized for you. Hopefully these looks will give your brain a boost before hitting the books (definitely a lot less stressful than finals in a few months!)
I have a penchant for expensive things but the budget of a pauper. So when it’s time for me to ACTUALLY pull the trigger and buy something, you better believe I’m making a well-thought budget conscious decision. Although, there are several items I don’t mind spending a little extra money on and those pieces are usually wardrobe staples. Think, classic and timeless but when it comes to trends…I’m definitely the cheap chic chick!
See, it’s easy to stay on trend, in style, and on budget! Let’s thank our lucky shopping stars for stores like Target, Ashley Stewart, OSP, Macy’s, and JCPenney!

They’re in, they’re hot, they’re everywhere and I’m down for the cause! Tassels are literally popping up on EVERYTHING!
(BEE TEE DUB/BTW….. I did sing/rap that, out loud, in the bed, in front of the laptop with my cat laying next to me.) That is more than likely a sign I’m sleep deprived but that’s neither here nor there!
Moving right along…..
Let’s see some tassels!!
Smartphone tassel charm….you are currently in my shopping cart! For $28 by Cara Accessories, there’s nothing more chic and affordable! It seriously looks like it costs over 100 bucks, easily!
Did someone say booty? I.am.in.absolute.love.with.these.booties. Ahhh Cole Haan why must you do these things to me?! I’m not ready to spend $400 on shoes this year so I showed these to my mom…the conversation went like this: Ooooh those are cute! I like them, they’re only $400!! Oh really mother? So you’re saying I can have them? No, I’m saying they’re cute.
ALL of the Coach fall line needs to be in my closet! Everything has a tassel and everything is gorgeous! When I first saw the soon-to-be fall line via my favorite site in the whole wide world… (PurseBlog) I was not so amazed but NOW…I want it all! Literally, the entire site could be posted right here but I’ll just post a few faves…check out the rest at Coach.com
Bobbles! These Michael Kors Earrings….perfect for day or night wear! Personally, if I wore these, it would be the only piece of jewelry I’d wear from the neck up….just so they pop!
Here’s a peasant flowy top $146 by Karen Kane. I’ve never worn this designer before so I’m not too sure how it would fit. It’s also fun finding new designers for curvy girls! Gives us more options and plenty of things to look forward to in the future.
Oh, hello there Jeffrey Campbell! How cute are these?! The “Gabi” flat with tassels on the back….I’m sold!
$124 at Nordstrom
If seeing all those swinging tassels didn’t make you want something with a tassel…I’m so beyond sorry. You’re going to have to get use to something hanging on you…it’s provocative. Well, that’s all folks!! Not that it was only a little bit! It was tons of tassels for your tempted eyes! Say that tongue twister five times fast! Happy shopping!
