Deanna, who is best described as a flower child, couldn’t feel more at home in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. Originally from New Jersey, her attraction to the West was the Environmental Studies program at the University of Colorado. Deanna’s style is like nothing I have covered before and I was so excited to spot her on campus.
Even though there was over a foot of snow on the ground, that didn’t stop Deanna from dressing up on this sunny but cool day. Her flared jeans and cropped chunky sweater looked great alongside her burnt orange top. Flared jeans have been a must-have recently and it was refreshing to see someone pull off the look so effortlessly.

Elements of Deanna’s Outfit
1. Crocheted Headband
Deanna is definitely not afraid to mix colors and textures. Her crocheted flower headband, bought in Costa Rica, adds a vintage feel to her ensemble. I love how she layers different accessories like scattered stud earrings and oversized sunglasses, which showcase her personal style.
2. Flared Jeans
Flared jeans have made their comeback this season and Deanna has always been a fan of the trend. Her floor-length bellbottoms elongate her legs and work for both the warm and cold seasons. Her jeans also include a cool embroidered pattern that makes them extra unique and highlights the colors in her headband.
