Even though it’s almost time for spring break, the Midwest is keeping up the trend of crazy weather! With close to five inches of snow (but still no snow day!), it’s easy to throw on sweatpants, your puffiest jacket and fuzzy boots for the trek across campus. However, I caught this Fashionista on her way to class in a gorgeous coat and couldn’t help but admire her lovely, classic ensemble that still kept her warm while walking around the quad!
