To the average college student, the month of May means balancing the stress of finals week, Justin Timberlake memes, moving out of your apartment or dorm, and saying goodbye to the pals you made this semester. In the midst of all this craziness, it’s nice to treat yourself to an outing with friends.

This Fashionista found herself going to brunch with friends on a rainy day, so she pulled this outfit together with comfort in mind. The key to making simplicity go from drab to fab is accessorizing! My favorite aspect of this look is the layered chokers. Choker necklaces are so in right now, and the single pearl adds just the right amount of minimalist vibes to this outfit. It’s obvious this Fashionista is no stranger to playing around with accessories, and I encourage you to follow in her footsteps. Try playing around with layering various lengths, or, if you’re like me, buy a spool of cord at your local craft store and tie one for yourself. I like to experiment with different knots (Boy Scouts unite).

As we all know, there’s nothing like slipping into your favorite pair of blue jeans, as they are quite possibly the most all-around piece of clothing a girl can have. This Fashionista rocks a pair of denim jeans rolled over a pair of boots. I like these boots because they can be worn year-round in every season. She finished the outfit by throwing on a cardigan over a peplum top to combat the rainy day. By the way, I am loving peplum—so chic!

You should never underestimate the power of wearing jeans and a T-shirt. As one of the most timeless looks, it’s easy to put your own spin on an outfit. Think of it as a canvas. Art major or not, paint away!
