Mid-semester has just hit; we are almost halfway done with the spring semester. Midterms have just flown by and now it’s time to stress over finals, projects and presentations. The not-so-glamorous part of college begins but let’s not forget we are still fashionable. With all of our agendas booked, and fast approaching all-nighter season we need some down time. Brunch sounds like such a fancy word, when I hear this I immediately think of Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, with their fancy settings of mimosas and full formal wear for a brunch event. But, let’s be real, as much as we would like to be there, brunch for a normal college student is not such a formal affair.  But we can still channel Serena van der Woodsen’s style into a ready-to-wear college Fashionista brunch outfit.

In a decked out bohemian vibe, this Fashionista’s outfit is the perfect blend of comfortable and chic for a nice brunch date with the girls. This bold sweater in pink adds dimension to her light wash skinny jeans, white tank top and brown belt. It also helps protect her from the occasional breeze that appears in southwest Texas during the spring. Her fringe cross-body bag makes the biggest bohemian statement of the outfit; tied in with her gladiator sandals, colorful necklace and gold accessories this Fashionista is ready to have brunch in style.

One Simple Change: Feeling stressed out with all that is looming in the future? Switch out the sandals for some cute Converse and go mini-golfing and movie watching with some friends over the weekend.
