For a new incoming freshmen, this girl has no problem finding her place. She creates her own trends and her outfits come from unusual places. She stands out among the new kids on the block with her amazing jacket, blue pants and oxford heels. She even strays from the common stores along her nearest strip mall; she likes to go to boutiques with her mom while she’s traveling. I would love to see her collection full of out of town pieces! Her shoes are what first caught my eye. See what kinds she likes to splurge on…

How To: To get a look like this Travelista, pick a few simple statements like she did with her pants, her scarf and her shoes to complete a full look. These shoes are a great start, and with this scarf you can’t go wrong. Start with a basic background and slowly, and be careful not to overload, add in the statement pieces. Patterns can mix as long as the colors work together! And take a hint from this Fashionista; when you are traveling, look around at the little quirky shops. There are always plenty of hidden treasures in stores like that!
