Fall is here! The freshmen have finally gotten the hang of things and students have settled into routines with their classes. Even though fall has arrived on campus, Floridians still wear shorts year round. Most students wake up twenty minutes before class, throw on their Nike shorts and shoes, and run out the door. When I saw this Fashionista it was like a breath of fresh air! She breaks the mold and stands out—in a good way. She manages to look polished while also being comfortable and casual.

This Fashionista is wearing a simple black long sleeve top that is perfect for the Florida fall weather. She is pairing it with a pair of comfortable yet fashionable shorts. To top off the look, she added a pair of Oxford shoes that are perfect for walking around campus. To accessorize, she added cute rings and a necklace. This is a look that is just as easy to put on before class as a tank top and athletic shorts, but it is much more fashionable and put together.

I find that looking good gives you that little bit of extra confidence you need to ace your exam or speak up on class. When you look good, it makes you feel good. Spending an extra five minutes in the morning to pull together a cute outfit will make your day better because it will put a little pep in your step!

One Simple Change: If you have a career fair or professional event coming up and want to impress potential employers, then this is a great outfit. Just add a structured black blazer and you will look classy and stand out in a sea of pantsuits.
