Two words: California girl.  For a typical sunny day with a light breeze, this Fashionista had on the perfect outfit.  The trend of oversized sweaters on top tight tank tops and high-rise shorts is one that continues to be popular even months into summer.  The look is simple, trendy and most of all fit for any type of weather that these sporadic seasons throw at us.  These days, Fashionistas get so caught up in designer names.  I thought it was refreshing to find a Fashionista that had a more laid-back approach to her day out shopping.  Her acid-washed shorts looked adorable with the beige sweater and other neutral colors of her apparel.  From the style icon she mentioned to her blonde hair, this Fashionista captured all-American beach style in a nutshell.
