WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

A cafe on a college campus on the weekend is the equivalent to a watering hole in the wild. At some point, everyone gathers there. When going to your campus’s cafe, or anywhere on the weekend really, you’re more than likely to see someone you know. It could be one of your friends, a professor or that cute boy from class. Regardless of who it is that you do see, you want to look cute. But you also don’t want to look like you tried too hard just to go grab some coffee or walk around campus. Where’s the happy medium?

This Fashionista captures the perfect cute and casual look for the weekend and your inevitable trip to the cafe. This look shows you put some effort into your outfit without over-thinking it. It’s effortless, yet absolutely adorable. Her girly and feminine dress features a preppy pattern. Her open-knit cardigan dresses down the look in the most perfect way. It allows her to be warm and comfy all while maintaining a polished look.

Her mixture of gold and silver jewelry is fun and unique. Charm bracelets look so good when they’re all together. It’s an easy way to give your outfit some life without overdoing it. She completes the look with basic nude ballet flats. Flats are the perfect shoes to put on when you’re running out the door. They slip right on, match almost any look and are stylish. They’re also the perfect shoe for toning down outfits and creating a more casual look.

Let this Fashionista inspire you to look amazing for that cup of coffee at your campus’ local watering hole. You’ll look cute, casual and girly while not seeming like you care that much.

One Simple Change: To make this look a bit more appropriate for a weekend night out with the girls, trade the ballet flats for a pair of heels. Instead of the open-knit cardigan, you can throw on a biker jacket. Now you’re ready for a night out on the town!
