Fashionista Spotlight

It is nearly 60 degrees in Provo, Utah! If you know anything about northern Utah, you know winters are cold. Utah is known for its awesome ski resorts and snowfall all winter long, and in some years, even until April. However, it is February, and the sun is out—and it’s hot. Warm weather is exciting, though, because that is when all the Fashionistas come out, like Alayna.

This Fashionista is perfectly boho in her long maxi skirt and beaded headband. She is looking relaxed, yet glamorous at the same time—that takes talent. The boho look a good style to incorporate into your wardrobe. Layering pieces like maxi skirts and dresses, loose tops, lace, and headpieces are boho essentials. Alayna shows us that wearing a boho look is friendly, approachable, pretty and effortless.

CollegeFashionista: What inspired your outfit today?

Alayna Smith: I chose to wear the skirt, and I added everything else around the skirt. I wanted to wear the skirt, so I just found more boho pieces to go with it.

AS: Just eclectic. I feel like just an incorporation of a bunch of different styles I like.

CF: What is you coolest eclectic piece that you could never get rid of?

AS: My ring I wear on my middle finger that my uncle gave me. It is a Native American ring.

CF: Talking about family, what do you do with clothing gifts from family that you do not particularly like?
