STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Don’t Let The Weather Get You Down

It isn’t April yet, but I keep checking my calendar to make sure the cold weather streak that won’t leave Iowa isn’t some sort of cruel April Fool’s Day joke. Thats right, it is still snowing here on the University of Iowa campus and most students are back from Spring Break, hiding under their beds, refusing to come out until the snow melts—for good this time.

At this point, my snowy afternoon of Fashionista-searching, with frozen fingers and a runny nose, wasn’t looking too promising. That was until this lovely Fashionista came out of the local bread market as if sent down like an angel to answer my fashion prayers. While all of the other students were still in hiding or giving their uniform UGGS and NorthFace jackets a last run for their money as they scurried about campus, this Fashionista left her house that morning thinking, “Snow? Who cares!” and let me tell you, her look could have left every weather-depressed student on campus inspired.

What I love about this Fashionista’s outfit is her incorporation of both spring and winter items. Because, while it may technically be spring, it definitely isn’t time to pull out your pastel shorts and crop tops. In her navy dress with a springy floral pattern, she was able to dress a little bit for spring while keeping warm in her tights, lace-up booties and fabulous faux-fur scarf (a piece I will miss when spring weather decides to come our way.)

As you can tell from the photos, this Fashionista didn’t let snow in March get her down but instead, embraced Mother Nature’s mixed signals. While you may be sick of everything that falls under the “winter” category in your closet, this Fashionista is the perfect example of why pulling out your favorite warm scarf and digging into your tights drawer one last time may just put a smile on your face.
