I spotted this week’s Fashionista out and about on this breezy spring day! Her bright red and white striped sweater caught my eye and of course the monogrammed back pocket of her jeans was an added bonus. Despite the colder weather that has come through Atlanta, this Fashionista’s style is still bright and cheerful.

How To: This Fashionista loves bright colors and patterns which helps define her cheerful and fun sense of style. As long as you are not afraid of color, this look is easy to achieve. Most importantly, start with an item in a new, fun color that you feel comfortable and confident it. Neon pink, yellow and orange are all great hues for summer, and you will definitely make a statement. Once you have decided on your pop of color, the rest of the outfit is simple! Basic dark denim or any neutral colored short or skirt will keep the focus of the outfit on the vibrant color or pattern.
