Today it was nine degrees outside. Nine. Needless to say I am very thankful this Fashionista agreed to step outside for the photo portion of the interview. I have to give props to her for bearing the cold air while still looking cute. I spotted her sitting in a walkway at school and knew I had to talk to her. I loved the comfy yet stylish vibe that her outfit gives off. It’s easily put together and easy to pull off on those days when you feel you have nothing to wear.

How To: This look is super easy to achieve. And great for a day when you have no clue what to wear. First, grab a simple peacoat like this one from ASOS. Underneath put on a comfy sweater like this from Anthroplogie with a warm scarf from Urban Outfitters on top. Throw on a simple pair of skinny jeans like these from Gap. Finally, pair your outfit with an edgy pair of lace up boots by Madden Girl. Want to mix up the outfit a little? My suggestion would be to switch out your basic jeans for a fun pair like these from Gap. And to keep extra warm on those chilly days add a cozy beanie from Urban Outfitters and some cute gloves from Urban as well.
