Getting Styled by a Fashion Student- Part 2

You all loved my first “My Fashion Student Friend styles me for a week” post so much that we knew we had to do a part two!

Where last time she styled me for a week of going to class this week we wanted to create outfits based on events or themes. It was so fun to have a reason to dress up and get out of my same rotation of sweats.

Courage Dear Heart- ways to be brave every day

Fashion Student Picks my Outifts for a Week

Fast forward about 6 years and she is now a fashion student. So I thought it would be fun to have her try and dress me for a week again!

(For more Autumn themed posts check out Remembering October and 19 Halloween Movies To Watch)

Don’t get out your winter coats just yet, all you need is a sweater and you can spend the whole day outside exploring nature. Which is just what I did with my roommate this weekend.
