Tell us about your outfit
The coat is vintage -- it's from my aunt. She loves to shop and she sends me all these awesome designer clothes. The dress is from H&M. The necklace was a gift from my mother and I got the bag for about $5 in my favorite neighborhood in Peru. I was having a really good day when I bought it, and it always makes me happy.

How would you describe your style?
You should wear the clothes, they shouldn't wear you. I like to wear a lot of simple, solid colors and let my jewelery and accessories make a statement. I want my accessories to be meaningful items that bring back good memories when I see them -- kind of like hearing a song. I love to include a South American influence.

Where do you shop?
All over really. I got this dress at H&M. Some of my favorite places locally are Marshall's, DSW Warehouse, and Chico's (for the jewelry alone). For the most part, I look for the best deals and most interesting finds. And I spend a great deal of time raiding my sister's closet! I buy a lot of my jewelry at Elissa Halloran on Lark Street. She has wonderful jewelery.

AOA's Take:
Wearing a winter coat in the fall just looks and feels uncomfortable. Nicole's lightweight vintage coat adds a burst of color and provides a stylish transition to the cooler weather. The jewelery and bag help tie everything together and the bag has a story.

I went to one last month. My friend took his oath of citizenship. It is a great ceremony. A local school choir sang. There was a moving speech from one of the new citizens who grew up a refugee and at the age of 21 was finally a citizen of a country for the first time in her life. The League of Women Voters give warm welcomes, flags and voter registration cards to all the new citizens. It gave me such warm fuzzies. Everyone should try to go to one of these if they get the chance.
