Every college student knows the feeling of having a schedule that is so jam-packed with activities that it becomes hard to find a balance between work/school life and a much needed social life. Students may go from school to work, or from an internship to sports practice and still have to find time to eat, sleep and do schoolwork. A great way to release a little steam is to set aside at least one day out of the month to have brunch with your best girls! If you have been bumming it out all week long on campus, brunch is a nice way to lift your spirits and strut around town in your favorite heels.

This Fashionista pulls off this simple yet chic look effortlessly. She paired a cropped tank top in a staple fall color with a classic pair of tailored high-waisted shorts. The look became 10 times more personalized and interesting with this Fashionista’s shoe choice: black iridescent single-strap, chunky heels. Although that may be a mouthful, these heels are super cute, on-trend, and are comfortable enough to walk around town in!

This outfit is great for a casual brunch whether you live in Chicago or in Los Angeles. This Fashionista’s personal style shines through with her choice of accessories. I love that she kept her jewelry to a minimum to keep the focus on the simplicity of the outfit and her killer shoes.

One Simple Change: After you and your girls part ways at the restaurant, you can throw on a nice long duster coat to run a few errands before you return home. Changing one small detail of the outfit can transform the whole look, and it can become more appropriate for a variety of occasions!
