It is certainly difficult to keep up with a busy, ever-changing schedule. With summer internships ending and the fall semester right around the bend, we’re replacing our sunglasses for nerdy specs and exchanging our late nights with friends for all-nighters in the company of a couple thousand flashcards and a textbook. While most of us still can we are spotted taking comfort in classically chic summer looks. This Fashionista does an amazing job pulling together some staple pieces that represent her modern style.
Name: Fiona McCabe
CollegeFashionista: Can you tell me a little bit about what you’re wearing?
FM: Topshop dress and Superga sneakers. I’ve got my Longchamp tote with me too; it is a great bag to carry to and from my internship.
CF: What is your favorite part of your outfit today?
FM: My favorite part of my outfit is definitely my jewelry. I got my heart necklace from my mom and my little Sara gave me one of the bracelets I’m wearing. I also love my Superga sneakers – paired with a dress they are clean enough to wear to the office.
CF: With a busy schedule, how do you make time to stay fashionable and still be ready for a demanding internship?
FM: I actually find that office wear cramps my style. I like wearing somewhat zany leggings or colorful tops at school, which isn’t exactly office appropriate. I try to incorporate interesting sneakers or patterned pieces to keep from feeling drab.
CF: If you could swap closets with one celebrity, who would it be?
FM: Definitely Emma Watson for formal events. She always looks so put together and beautiful. For everyday clothing I would say Jennifer Lawrence just because I want to be her.
How To: A very similar dress can be found at Topshop. If you’re looking for some cool sneaks to spice up your office look check out Converse (I always find a great pair of sneakers puts a little pep in your step at the office). Fun jewelry can be found here!
