I met Bijou while I was waiting for my friend to get out of class at Washington University. I found her while she was studying in the student center. As a neuroscience major, Bijou is crazy busy, but she still looked effortlessly put-together in her fall attire. She’s proof that it doesn’t take tons of time to look stylish.
I’m thrilled the cold weather is returning and fall fashion will be back with it. I think booties, leggings, sweaters, scarves, and layers make up the best styles. Seeing Bijou made me excited to dress cozier in the upcoming months!

Elements of Bijou’s Outfit
1. Brown Fringe Booties
Booties are so much fun to wear and fall is the perfect time to put them on heavy rotation. Bijou’s booties feature fringe on the outside which gives them some motion when she moves. The neutral color also helps bring her basic pieces together.
2. Naturally Pretty Hair and Makeup
Bijou’s gorgeous face and hair should inspire you to try going au naturale sometime! She looked flawless, even without makeup. “I didn’t even look at my hair this morning,” Bijou says. And now we are officially jealous of her.
