Fashionista Spotlight

It’s a new semester here on campus at Eastern Connecticut State University and that means a new season for new fashion! As you may know, here in Connecticut we get the harsh version of winter with some extra snow and some extra BRR! Waking up and picking an outfit can be daunting, especially when you’re not sure of how the day will be. I spotted this Fashionista on her way to work and she had the look just right! She wears a black parka over a neutral T-shirt and patterned scarf. Additionally, she wears a pair of black leggings for comfort with a brown riding boot. Finally, she accessorizes with a David Yurman cuff and a gold Kate Spade watch. These accessories are fun and youthful but toned down enough to keep with the pace of her outfit!
