My name is Mary McAteer and I am overjoyed to continue on as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. I’m a 19-years-old sophmore at Flagler College. Originally from Rhode Island, I now study Deaf Education in sunny yet sometimes rainy, St. Augustine, Florida.
I was born and raised in Rhode Island and was always on the water. For that reason alonem I had a nautical vibe to my wardrobe. Growing up I had the typical preppy Northeastern style, always wearing my Sperry Top-Siders, riding boots and Jack Rogers sandals. I’m very blessed to have a boat that my family lives on during the weekends throughout the summer months. It always gave me an excuse to rock a bathing suit underneath my Lilly Pulitzer dress.
Now that I’m back in Florida for the fall I have no doubt in my mind that my style will surely change and I welcome it with open arms. Flalger College is a great place to spot up and coming trends and it’s the perfect canvas to try them out on.
My favorite stores to shop at are H&M, Lilly Pulitzer, Etsy and Forever 21. I love putting potential outfits together in my head and then find the different pieces when I’m shopping online.
I am beyond thankful to be not only writing for CollegeFashionista again but to also be starting a new category. I will now be writing the STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK piece and cannot wait to share all of Flagler’s stylish Fashionistas and Fashionistos with you. Cheers to another stylish semester!
