After a couple of windy and unexpectedly rainy days over here in the Arizona desert, the world finally blessed us with some beautiful sunshine. (I apologize to all of you suffering on the East Coast. Your time will come, I promise.) I spotted ASU freshman Amy on my way back to my dorm, dressed to the nines in a outfit that celebrated the change of seasons perfectly.

Elements of Amy’s Outfit
1. Chevron Maxi Skirt
This skirt! Need I say more? I’m a huge fan of black and white, and when combined with a cool chevron pattern, this maxi skirt from Windsor makes my little heart sing.
2. Woven Sandals
It’s not officially spring yet, but when the opportunity strikes to wear open-toed shoes, you do it. These shoes, which Amy bought at Marshalls, have a unique woven texture and ankle straps. These elements elevate the shoes from being a plain and simple to chic and stylish.
I didn’t notice these beautiful earrings until I got a closer look at Amy’s outfit, but I’m so glad I got a chance to gaze in awe at the intricate design. These earrings add just the touch of shine this look needed, as well as a little bit of glamour.
