STYLE ADVICE: Best of Both Worlds

Spring weather is finally upon us in Happy Valley, and that means it’s time to pack away those parkas. Personally, I find dressing for this in-between weather the hardest. The mornings are chilly, but then the sun comes out to warm everything up. This Fashionista had no trouble dressing for the day. In my opinion, her outfit is the perfect spring transition look.

The statement piece of this Fashionista’s look is her neutral colored Timberlands. I personally find Timberlands somewhat hard to style, but this Fashionista did an effortless job. Despite their masculine appearance, this Fashionista manages to balances them out by pairing a simple white sweater and olive vest.

In my opinion, vests are the perfect clothing piece for college especially during this transition period from winter to spring. I purchased my own during my freshmen year of college and it is by far the most worn thing in my closet. This Fashioninsta’s vest was purchased on sale from Sears. The vest itself has a very feminine cut, which contrasts nicely with her boots.

Accessories can add so much to a look like this. One of my favorites from this Fashionista’s outfit is her purse. This Michael Kors bag is so simple, but adds a nice touch to the look. The neutral tones complement the rest of her outfit and the purse itself is the perfect size to fit her phone and wallet.

Keeping with the feminine look on top, this Fashionista added a neutral statement necklace from Francesca’s. The necklace gives the look a preppy vibe and complements the sweater as well as the vest. Her last accessory to complete her look is a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses.

Until next time, you can find me sporting my own vest and Timberlands, while also hoping I don’t run into this Fashionista because I’m definitely stealing her look.
