Upon stumbling into Starbucks in desperation to escape the frigid weather, I was pleasantly surprised to find not one, but two things that brightened my day. The first, which was expected, was my delicious peppermint mocha. The other, which was quite unexpected, was Courtney’s cozy yet luxe ensemble. Taken by surprise, I noticed Courtney’s outfit when I caught a glimpse of fur out of the corner of my eye. Right then I knew I had to get a better look at Courtney’s style.
After speaking with Courtney I found out that she is constantly searching for “cute and sensible” items to wear to class. Her vest, adding both warmth and a touch of glamour, passes this test with flying colors. However, an outfit is never complete without accessories, and Courtney’s necklace, bracelet, and watch worked together to provide the perfect finishing touch to her ensemble. A fashion writer for both the Daily Cardinal and College Fashionista, Courtney understands the importance of fashion and style and demonstrates that with her casual yet chic look.
