How do you juggle school and dressing well?
Well, you happened to grab me on the day where I was actually looking nicer than usual. Most of my classes are a little bit later in the day, which is nice, so I can get dressed up. But there will always be sweatpants days at the library.
 

How would you describe your style?
I mostly dress in classic pieces. This outfit is kind of me experimenting more with trendier pieces, but for the most part I dress classic.
 

What are your favorite A2 stores?
I really love Urban Outfitters and Pitaya. I work at Gap at the mall, so that's my go-to place for jeans and t-shirts, and Francesca's has really cute scarves and jewelry.
 

You're originally from Columbus. Has A2 style influenced you?
It definitely has. In high school I was an athlete, so I was not super girly. And I grew up in a suburb, so it wasn't very diverse. But when I got to college I started branching out a little more. Being in A2, where everybody comes from different places and has a different look, is kind of a good way to pick up on new ideas.
