After about five days of cold weather and rain, North Carolina was blessed with a bit of sunshine. Tori took advantage of this beautiful day to wear one of her favorite dresses. I saw Tori outside of our Student Center – she was on her way to grab lunch with some newly accepted students. As I walked by, I immediately noticed her boots and knew I had to stop and talk to her about her sweet sense of style.

Elements of Tori’s Outfit
1. Brown Boots
Tori’s brown boots immediately caught my attention – while the rest of her outfit is light and delicate, these rugged boots provide a nice contrast. They give the ensemble just the right amount of country flavor.
2. Floral Pattern
The reds and blues in the flowery pattern of Tori’s dress are delicate and just the right shade for this spring day. This pattern is fun and girly and can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.
3. Denim Vest
The pattern of Tori’s dress is sweet and girly, the boots are tough, and the denim vest is just the right mixture of both.Vests by nature give any outfit that menswear feel, but because of the light color and fabric, Tori’s vest keeps her outfit perfectly balanced.
