Fashionista Spotlight

As much as I love wearing sandals and flip flops, shoes are one of my favorite parts of my fall wardrobe. I personally have a shoe addiction but from what I’ve seen, as do the rest of the girls on the Marist campus. This week’s Fashionista has a simple fall look featuring a lot of warm colors, but it's pulled together with a great pair of fold over combat boots. Her look consists of a fall-inspired tribal shirt, dark washed jeans and a grey faux leather jacket. There are many different Fashionistas at Marist but I love it when someone has their own personal style and it catches my attention.
