WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

After a long week at school, there was nothing more refreshing than waking up on a Saturday morning with an open agenda and a fabulous fashion sense. As this Fashionista walked into her closet to pick out the perfect outfit for brunch, she found herself stuck between a T-shirt and shorts, or this beautiful new black dress she had just found at Forever 21. After a few minutes of deliberating and asking her roommate, she chose the black dress. With the perfect combination of classy and contemporary, her braided hair and choice of accessories gives this Fashionista the appearance of a young professional with a taste for high fashion.

The Fashionista starts her look with a beautiful black, lace dress purchased from Forever 21. Something that I love about this dress is that it is so versatile and can be worn to almost any event. The simple cut and sew of the dress including the lace sleeves is perfect for morning brunch with the girls, and the dark colors and open-back is a wonderful option for a late night date night. With such a simple dress, this Fashionista found it important to accessorize and make it her own! Hung beautifully around her neck is a hand-made necklace made in Africa and pinned on her ears are earrings found at a Los Angeles thrift shop. Finishing off her look, this Fashionista choose a simple off-white pair of Steve Madden wedges, giving it the perfect summer touch. Wherever she may be going, this Fashionista is dressed and ready to take on the city!

One Simple Change: Just finished brunch and headed out to grab some groceries? Try switching out the wedges for some white Converse and adding a lightweight oversize sweatshirt for a more hip, on the go look.
