Fashionista Spotlight

Finals week can sometimes defeat my sense of style and leave me wearing yoga pants and sweatshirts. As easy as it is to fall into this routine, there’s an even easier solution to prevent it: maxi dresses. Pick out a maxi dress like this Fashionista did! They’re quick, comfortable and adorable. I spotted this Fashionista on her way back from a final looking amazing. She paired her maxi dress with a statement necklace and a jean jacket for warmth. This Fashionista definitely didn’t let finals control her sense of style!

CF: Tell me about your personal style!

QB: Well I’m very much inspired by the South. I didn’t grow up in the South, but I know after college I will end up there. I like bright colors, big hair and I love accessories!

CF: What is your favorite thing in your wardrobe?
