CollegeFashionista: How would you define your style?
Lauren Seawright: I think my mood definitely reflects my styling choices for the day. Some days I feel like wearing clothes that are comfortable, and then I will dress it up with accessories. Other days I will dress up a little more. But most importantly I like to look effortless and chic at the same time.
CF: Where do you like to shop?
LS: I love to shop at Nordstrom and Victoria's Secret. When I’m looking for great deals I shop at T.J. Maxx. I always find great things on such a bargain.
CF: Who is your style icon?
LS: Rachel Bilson has the most amazing sense of style. I think she is the perfect example of looking effortless and so put together at the same time.
CF: What is your favorite summer trend this season?
LS: Definitely bright colored nail polishes. I prefer coral and pinks hues. I love how they can add color to my outfit without being too bold.
