Brittani doesn’t let the stifling North Carolina heat affect her sense of style. On a warm, summery day, I ran into her on my way to class and I couldn’t help but notice her ability to rock bright colors and bold patterns. (I especially loved her turquoise nail polish.).

Elements of Brittani’s Style
1. Floral Crop Top
I love that this top is feminine and bright. Its flirty ruffles and bold floral print make it a perfect complement to Brittani's dark wash, high-waisted jean shorts. Featuring bright colors in your wardrobe doesn’t have to stop when fall rolls around (especially if it's still nice outside). Numerous designers have featured a variety of bright colors in their runway shows for their fall collections.
2. Feather Earrings
I love the way Brittani's natural, soft, Native American-inspired feather earrings contrast with the boldness of her crop top. They also pair excellently with her chunky gold chain bracelet and canary yellow ring.
3. Fold-over Leather Sandals
These sandals are a great everyday shoe with a twist. I love the way the top part folds over, as well as their chunky gold zippers and rich caramel color.
