I was walking by the Communications building on campus when I saw Caroline talking to some friends. I immediately fell in love with the color palette she chose for her outfit and had to feature her for my latest CF article.

Elements of Caroline's Outfit

1. Purple Blazer + Cameo Necklace 


Caroline’s bluish-purple blazer made her stand out from the crowd in a great way. I fell in love with the color at first glimpse, and everybody knows I already love blazers in general. 

For me, a well-fitting blazer is an absolute closet essential and, although one in black goes with everything, a more colorful choice can change your whole look. Caroline accessorized her black top with a cameo necklace, which gave her outfit a classic touch.

2. Printed Ruffled Skirt


Caroline was wearing a gorgeous printed skirt she bought at Bo.Bo, a Brazilian store known for its bohemian chic clothes. The colors on the skirt paired perfectly with her blazer and top, and the ruffles brought some playfulness to an otherwise serious outfit.

3. Burgundy Ankle Boots


If you haven't jumped on the ankle boot bandwagon yet, what are you waiting for? 

I adore how Caroline brought color to her look not only with a bold blazer, but also with her killer burgundy shoes. Deep shades of red have been everywhere lately and they scream fall. Even though it’s technically spring down here, Porto Alegre’s crazy climate means it’s every season, every day. Which, thankfully, means we get to wear our ankle boots.
