Have you ever seen an outfit this fashion-forward and yet put together so effortlessly? Probably not. This is Thando by the way, a much shorter version of her exquisitely long name. She happens to be a hall-mate of mine, and while I have been stomping around in sweatpants, she threw on this adorable outfit for a self guided tour of our new neighborhood. This look is the epitome of cute, comfortable, and casual. She pairs a striped maxi skirt featuring thigh high slits with a plain black T. To amp up this simple look, she not only slips on leopard print flats, but she chooses a beautiful white, chunky necklace from West Africa. A true authentic piece. She sports a statement ring, and keeps the outfit clean, sleek, and oh so chic. This young woman has got it going on, so NYC, you better watch out. Thando is on the loose.
