KA: There’s no right way of being a Fashionista so just always be yourself! Don’t be afraid to try new trends.
CF: What’s your favorite form of an accessory?
KA: I love earrings. Etsy has the most beautiful, unique earrings ever! I love shopping from there.
CF: How do you go about picking your daily outfit?
KA: It depends on my mood and how I want to portray myself that day. I start with a basic piece and try to accessorize it with a central point of focus. If I try to wear something that’s a really bright color, I try to tone it down with a neutral color. Balance is key when creating your daily outfit.
How to: Animal print should be the main focal piece of your outfit. Start off with an animal print blouse and pair it with your favorite black jeggings or skinny jeans. Accessorize your outfit with your favorite pieces of jewelry and throw on your favorite pair of boots and your ready to hit the town!
