I spotted this Fashionista heading to George Washington University's annual Fall Fest. Fall Fest takes place at the beginning of the school year and includes a day filled with booths, BBQ's and performances. This year, Girltalk mixed his mashups into the night while Whole Foods handed out healthy treats. Since the humidity hit a point of scorching, this Fashionista was smart and played it frilly, but cool, in her Rachel Pally for Shopbop dress and Seychelles sandals.  Her loose ruffles allowed her to easily move around and navigate through the vast crowd of students. Even though Fall Fest is supposed to get us excited for the Fall semester, this Fashionista gave a nod to the last days of summer.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?

Abby Gross: California-chic with an occasional East Coast twist.

CF: What blogs do you follow?

AG: My favorite is The Satorialist because I really like street fashion. It's interesting to see the comparison of what's being worn in Europe to what's being worn here.

CF: Who are your style icons?

AG: Blake Lively and Dakota Fanning because both of their styles are very relaxed, yet they always look put together and chic.

How To: To get one more hoorah of summer in, pair a ruffle dress with bronze-tone sandals, some fun beaded braceletes and sunglasses to achieve the look of this Fashionista. Try adding a high waisted belt for some shape, or keep it loose for a relaxed day at the beach.
