I was leaving my last class of the week when I saw Giselle strolling around campus. It was a hot, sunny day; Porto Alegre’s winter has suddenly ended, and now the temperature doesn’t leave the 80s.
Giselle chose an outfit that was super-cute, comfortable for campus, and absolutely perfect for the weather.

Elements of Giselle's Outfit
1. Gold Necklaces
Giselle chose to accessorize her printed maxi dress with two juxtaposed gold necklaces. Anyone can pull off this look! You can layer as many necklaces as you wish, but choose different lengths for a trendy tiered look.
If you’re all for breaking old “fashion rules,” don’t be afraid to go bold and mix metals.
2. Gladiator Sandals
Just because you’re wearing a long dress doesn’t mean you let your shoe style slide. Giselle certainly didn't, opting for a lovely pair of brown gladiator sandals.
Gladiators are very comfortable and look especially good when paired with skirts and dresses. We love how these gladiators don't go too high up on the leg-- they make a statement without competing with Giselle's printed dress.
3. Aviator Sunglasses
To protect her eyes from those harmful sun rays, Giselle chose a classic: aviators. She's rocking Ray-Bans, but if you’re tight on money there are many affordable options out there. Just make sure they offer 100% UV protection!
