This week's Fashionista combines the up-and-coming feminine frenzy with a casual edge that makes for the best of both extremes. With floral prints and frills filling window displays everywhere, it's hard to resist the girly summer styles. But for those Fashionista's who don't necessarily want to dive head-first into feminine craze, it takes some mixing and matching to strike the right balance. Junior Heather Crombie does exactly this.

This week's Fashionista pairs a breezy floral tunic over sleak skinny jeans. She contrasts a decadent rose print in a breezy fabric against vitage denim to meet in the middle between delicate and distressed. Combined with metallic cut-out ballet flats and a simple french braid, this Fashionista's look is perfect for the hazy days ahead.

CF: What is the best style advice you've ever received?
