I love talking to Fashionistas that are so flattered by the fact that I think their outfit is awesome. People that are fashionable should be told so by everyone they talk to, it's just common courtesy. 

This Fashionista was coolly strolling to class wearing a simple laid back outfit — something I think we all aim for when we have those early morning lectures we can barely keep our eyes open for. I bet if professors were fashionable, we'd pay closer attention; I mean who wants to miss their journalism prof. wearing lamé leggings or a faux feather vest?

I love that this Fashionista's jeggings don't look like jeggings at all. I think that's one of the downfalls of this trend — most of them are clearly a rip-off pair of jeans and they look tacky. I also really like that she tucked them into her suede booties rather than wearing them on the outside. It really gives her footwear a chance to stand out and bring the outfit together. And kudos for wearing a long puffy North Face coat without making it look like a sleeping bag/sumo wrestling costume.

CollegeFashionista: Tell me about your outfit — how did you choose what to wear?

Katy McNamara: I chose to wear my outfit by grabbing a top and then finding other things to add more excitement to it, like a vest. Then, I put on my favorite jeggings that I always wear and realized I could spice it up by throwing on some boots.

CF: Where do you find inspiration for your style?

KM: For inspiration, I will sometimes see outfits in a magazine that I like that I will try to emulate. Also, BU has a lot of students with great fashion that I can get ideas from.

CF: Where do you get college-friendly fashion?

KM: My favorite store to shop at is definitely Free People. I also like Nordstrom, Madewell, Anthropologie, 344 and Urban Outfitters.

How To: Wear a great pair of jeggings that don't look like jeggings — that's the whole point. Grab a simple tee and a knit vest. Top it off with a comfy pair of suede booties and a puffy winter coat. Now you're all set for your late afternoon lecture! Try not to fall asleep though…
