During the week, I like to wander off campus and explore the backroads that lead to classes for students opting to walk. I’ve never regretted taking my camera with me, for every time I have I’ve come across a well-dressed individual willing to pose for me — if he or she isn’t late for class already. With spring right around the corner, many students are enjoying the fresh air and choosing to “go pedestrian” over fighting for limited parking spots.
This Fashionista was found embracing yet another crisp morning in perfect spring transition colors. Her paisley top is seasonally appropriate, balancing both the color and the pattern in a satisfying blend. Her white vest keeps her warm when a breeze picks up, as well as makes the colors in her laptop case really pop. Jeans and gold-tone loafers complete her look, allowing the casualness be mixed with a touch of glam.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Brittany Potter: My style is definitely more on the preppy side. I find myself more drawn to Tommy Hilfiger and J.Crew, as well as brightly colored and nautical-themed patterns.
CF: What are your go-to pieces for this upcoming spring season?
BP: I’m really eager to wear my Tommy Hilfiger 3/4 sleeve navy dress with my new Jack Rogers shoes! Light scarves and boyfriend jeans are also going to be part of my weekly attire once the temperatures continue to get warmer.
CF: Where do you gather most of your inspiration when deciding what outfits and looks to put together?
BP: Pinterest, hands down. I love the variety of pictures to look at and it makes it more fun to visualize with pieces I already have in my closet. I also check out Style.com when I’m feeling a bit more elegant or have an event to attend.
How To: This Fashionista embraces the weather with a pattern of the spring season in a winter-appropriate color palette. Her silver Alex and Ani bracelet stack and mixed metal Michael Kors watch both give her outfit a frosty sensation, as well as a bit more glitz in all the right ways. Mixing metals adds a very unique assortment to your wrist when looking for a different way to make a statement.
