April is one of my favorite months in New Orleans. The weather is undeniably beautiful, and afternoons are spent in the park eating Sno-Balls, a better version of sno-cones. The stress of midterms has finally settled down, and students are taking a mental break before starting to prepare for finals. This makes for the perfect time to get creative with your closet.

This Fashionista pulled together a fun and unique outfit using some of her favorite pieces. The long sleeve she has on was found at a thrift shop in Louisiana. It’s a great layering piece for heavily air conditioned classrooms, and the geometric print adds a great pop. She paired this top with a comfy T-shirt dress, something every fashion lover should have in her closet. To create some detail, she grabbed several different pieces of jewelry. Don’t be afraid to layer your necklaces and play around with different lengths. I’m a firm believer in wearing your favorite jewels no matter what the outfit—anything can match if you make it work. Finishing off her look is a great pair of boots. Comfortable enough to walk around campus and effortlessly stylish.

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with your clothes and continue to only style them one way. This Fashionista had only ever worn the button-down pictured as a top with jeans. She never thought to throw it on over a dress before. I challenge you to play around with your clothes and try to see them in a new light. I am definitely going to work on doing this in the future.
