It is unbelievable to me that four years have already come and gone. I still remember what I wore my first day of classes at Tulane: a white bohemian tank top, light wash denim cut-offs and gold studded brown gladiator sandals. I can still say I have all three of these items in my closet. However, I can’t say I am still the same girl who wore that outfit. Each year has brought about change, uncertainty, awareness and excitement. From spending freshman year adjusting and embracing college lifestyle, feeling at ease in a familiar place sophomore year, studying abroad first semester junior year and coming back second semester with an anticipated sense of seniority and finally culminating with a memorable senior year. I could not imagine spending my formative college years any place other then Tulane University.
Even though it has only been one year since I started writing for CollegeFashionista, it has been amazing to see how much this site has grown in such a short amount of time, and I am grateful to have been a part of it. Not only has being a Style Guru fine tuned my writing skills and sharpened my eye for fashion, it has also evolved my personal style. I have a greater understanding of what does and doesn’t work for me and how to put an outfit together. I have also developed a new found appreciation for street style. It has been so inspiring to see that college students just like me can have an influence in the fashion world.
After graduation, I plan to go back home to New York; there is nowhere else I would rather be. I am excited to see what the future holds, but right now I need to focus on finding a dress for graduation (although by the time this post goes live, after my graduation, I better have found something).
