Fashionista Spotlight

Here in Flagstaff, Arizona, the weather can be a bit unpredictable. One day we’ll have hot, sunny weather and the next we’ll be pulling out our winter coats. Because of the uncertain weather forecasts, girls here tend to lean toward the sweater and boots look quite often. When so many girls are wearing the same trend, it’s easy to blend in. But, as  Fashionistas, we know blending in is not an option. I spotted this Fashionista looking fierce in a sweater/boot combo that truly stood out. Instead of wearing the usual oversized, basic sweater with black leggings and boots, this Fashionista wore a studded sweater with gray dyed leggings and cute kate spade new york accessories. Her fun accents on her ensemble made for an exciting version of a normally basic outfit!
