This past St. Patrick’s Day was full of festive frocks and green everything. While some outfits were more outlandish than others, there was still plenty of spirited style to be found on campus. Lucky for me, I saw this beautiful lady walking down the street in her classic look. The only thing green about this outfit was my envy for her ombré hair and awesome belt buckle. Well okay, her sweater was green, too. This Fashionista set her look apart by pairing her favorite jeans and timeless sweater with a beautiful scarf and unique belt. Despite her desire to ditch her parka and cozy, sweater boots, this Fashionista was still able to work it.
