One thing and one thing only is keeping me from losing my mind completely, and that’s fall break. I know I’m not alone in this state of mind; midterms got me good and school hasn’t seemed to be letting up any since them. My outlet for this daily struggle is obviously fashion. Taking the time each week to spot you Fashionista/os gives me a chance to forget about school and think about who’s rocking what and for what occasion. This week it only seemed fitting to find a Fashionista (I have been neglecting my ladies for far too long) who embodied our upcoming fall break.
It could possibly be the bright orange hue that first caught my eye, very appropriate for the fall season. But it’s not this vibrant top alone that makes this ensemble excellent; it’s the combination of each piece. The strapless peplum top is a statement piece in itself. Peachy/orange hues bring out a nice tan glow on this Fashionista. And the peplum detail along with the zipper feature gives this top some attitude and character. Not only this, but it can also function for any season; in this case it becomes fall appropriate with the addition of a simple black cardigan. Dark jeans were a great addition to this ensemble. They let the top shine and look clean and classic. The dark brown riding boots take clean and classic a step further. They pull this ensemble together, creating a look suited for a reunion with friends home for break or even Thanksgiving dinner with the family.
Prepare appropriately for your fall break with this week’s fashionable finds. This first blouse from Forever 21 is unique while still having a classic edge. The twist hem gives this top interest and appeal. Available in blue and black, you could easily pick a color that suites your wardrobe best. For those of you who adore the peplum top our Fashionista was rocking, this Forever 21 find is the one for you. The black peplum top is classic with a nice edgy vibe. This top could easily be layered with a fun colored cardigan or jacket. The next addition to either of these tops is this pair of American Eagle jeans. The dark wash is versatile and the jegging fit is comfortable and perfect for a night of feasting on Thanksgiving foods. Add these UrbanOG riding boots and your ensemble is fall break ready.
One Simple Change: Going to spend a night on the town with your girls after family dinner? Don’t sweat it, this ensemble transitions seamlessly for a winter night out. Make a simple swap from the riding boots to some heeled booties and from the cardigan to a nice leather jacket. With these quick changes you are guaranteed to rock your night out.
