If there’s one thing I’ve learned this summer (besides how long to properly microwave a sweet potato), it’s that a dose of hot pink is a necessary staple in any outfit. Whether you’re in the mood for an all-black ensemble or your going bold with orange, there is always room for this sunny hue. If you’re feeling blue, cheer yourself up with a hot pink accessory. If you’re feeling ecstatic, feel even better with a pop of pink. If you’re thinking that I’m talking too much about pink, then you can stop because I’m moving on.
I’ve hit the ninth inning (pun intended even though I know very little about baseball), with STYLE GURU BIO number nine and my fourth semester as an editor for CollegeFashionista. I’ve talked about everything from my obsession with chambray to wearing sequins to dressing for a food baby. Even though it’s coming to an end, I’ll always have things that remind me of working with CollegeFashionista.
When it comes to the important things in life, like clothes and accessories, I’ve developed a love for almost all-black outfits, enhancing any outfit with lipstick and that a pair of questionable turquoise headphones I found under my bed are actually quite a fun accessory. I have no clue what my style will be like this semester, but I guarantee that there will be a lot of chambray, gold accessories and elastic waistbands.
After spending an entire stupendous summer in Chicago interning at the CollegeFashionista office with Melissa, I’ve learned even more about the company and a lot of different vegetables. It also quickly became clear that Chicago is one of the best cities ever and Melissa is the world’s best boss—even better than Michael Scott.
Thanks to Melissa (aka mom or boss lady), my fellow stellar intern buddies and the super cool friends I made working as a hostess, I became a somewhat outgoing person this summer. Although I learned far more than how to zap a sweet potato and the importance of wearing hot pink, I think those are some pretty valuable takeaways that everyone should lean more about.
