Sunny days, birds chirping, aromatic florals ― these are all things to look forward to in spring, but there's always something else that excites me even more. Spring is undoubtedly one of my personal favorite seasons for fashion! Between all the fun florals and pastel colors, it's a breath of fresh air as we leave behind the cold and rainy winter months!
I’ve gathered some of my favorite spring looks, all of which can be altered to fit your climate all while looking fresh for this spring season!
Not gonna lie, this look definitely gave me early 90s vibes but I wasn’t mad about it! This pastel yellow tee with a fun floral design is going to be one of my go-to tops this spring season. How much more spring can you get than yellow and flowers?
This top is one of my favorite floral tops because of all its cute details! The polka dots and frills are great touches that just make this top so flowy and perfect for spring! I also threw on a cardigan because sometimes spring weather isn’t quite warm yet and a little extra warmth can be needed!
This pair of floral flowy shorts is a personal necessity in the spring! They are super easy to throw on and always make a feminine put-together outfit! I simply paired them with a white tee and a jean jacket for some warmth and to balance the ultra-girly vibes.
This last look is so clean and fresh that I had no choice but to include it! I styled a simple pinstripe men's shirt by tying it and pairing it with some classic mom jeans. With its sophistication and clean lines, this top screams spring! Lastly, I polished off the look with some black Chelsea boots.
I hope you found some outfit inspiration for the upcoming spring season! Head to your local Plato’s Closet to find the unique spring styles you’re looking for! Remember that spring is a time to try new things and have a new start, whether that be in your wardrobe or just life in general!

We all know how difficult this time of year can be with all of the testing, college planning and summer jitters. Getting through these last few months of school can be made easier with a few simple study tips to help you stay organized and motivated.
The first study tip is to keep your schedule organized. Keeping a calendar with all of your tests, special events and important deadlines is the key to using your time efficiently in school. Keeping a calendar makes it much easier to stay on track and juggle the craziness that is high school. Personally, I write down all my assignments, extracurricular activities and important dates all in the same planner ― this way I am able to see what is on my agenda for each day!
The second study tip goes hand-in-hand with keeping a schedule: making and following to-do lists! I find that to-do lists help me stay focused and organized every time I sit down to get some work done. Unlike a schedule that just has all my due dates and assignments, my daily to-do lists allow me to create specific tasks for myself leading up to those deadlines. With to-do lists, I am always able to accomplish my daily tasks and stay on track for my upcoming deadlines!
Another useful study tip is to take really good notes during class. I find that writing down important information as my teacher is talking allows me to better absorb the information and review it later.
All of these study tips will help you finish out this year school year at the top of your game! Next time you’re feeling stressed out look back at these helpful tips to help you stay focused and organized.

It’s the WORST when you go on vacation and get to your destination only to realize you forgot the one thing you told yourself not to forget. With spring break right around the corner, I want to share a few ways to make packing easier.
- The first thing I do before even touching my suitcase is make a list. I write down all of the obvious things (tops, bottoms, pajamas, swimsuits) and then add the things I tend to forget like socks, headphones and sunglasses. This way I’m not paranoid about forgetting anything!
- Plan out your outfits for each day. This is something I do every time I travel, and it’s a game changer! I used to throw all of my favorite pants and shirts into a suitcase and call it a day, but then I would arrive at my destination with 17 shirts and 2 pants that didn’t even match. Setting out two complete outfits for each day of my vacation has changed the game 100%. If you’re a big shopper like I am, you probably shop even harder on vacation just because you’re on vacation, so don’t forget to leave space in your suitcase to make sure you have enough room to take everything home!
- My last and final tip is to always wear your bulkiest clothes and shoes on the plane. Coats and boots are heavy. You will save so much space by wearing your puffy jackets and bulky boots on the plane so you don’t have to pack them.
Hopefully these tips will help you achieve a smoother and less stressful travel experience on your upcoming spring break getaway! Don’t forget, visit Plato’s Closet for your spring break essentials. That way you’ll have more money to spend on your spring break adventures!

Surprises to make you smile, always at Plato's Closet! 🍿
February 14th, the day dedicated to celebrating love, is quickly approaching and whether you have romantic plans with your boo or are spending the night with your closest gal pals, you’ll need an outfit to show your love spirit. I’ve put together two outfits to celebrate the season of love, no matter who you're celebrating with!
I’m a firm believer in getting dressed up when going on a Valentine’s date with your boo because it is the DATE of all dates you go on throughout the year. Keeping that in mind, I decided that this LBD (little black dress) with a glamorous flare is the perfect look. By pairing this with the blush pink teddy coat, it will make you feel like you're ready to style and profile out on your love adventure. For accessories, I kept the jewelry to a minimum by wearing a nameplate necklace and some not-so-average hoops with the word ‘love’ inscribed in them. Plato’s Closet is the perfect place to find fun accessories to upgrade your LBD!
For the babe who is spending this day with their best gal pals, you can keep it cute and casual by pairing some distressed girlfriend jeans and strappy, short pumps with a flannel shirt tied up and slightly off the shoulder. To add more of a feminine feel, you can use a velour scrunchy to tie your hair up, which also compliments the blush pink purse. Lastly, grab a leather jacket to wear over your shoulders to give this outfit that extra accessory piece.
