My name is Alexa, but my friends and family call me Lulu. I’m 21-year-old rising senior and broadcast journalism major at the Pennsylvania State University in State College. This is my second semester writing for CollegeFashionista, and I couldn’t be happier. I am also moving to New York City for the summer for a social media internship with a trendy new jewelry company, geared toward providing super cute souvenirs of your travels: Jet Set Candy! Check them out, and be sure to follow their social media for me. *Wink, wink.*

I’m excited to be immersed in the fashion culture of New York City, and hope to be able to find some awesome Fashionista/os to show you! I think that the trendy atmosphere of the city will be an exciting change from the styles that I usually see in Philadelphia and at State College.

I believe that summer adventures are the best kind, filled with beach trips, ice cream dates and exploring the city. (All of which are perfect excuses to get dressed up). My hobbies are spending too much time on Pinterest looking at recipes that I will probably never make because I cannot cook, being a dog-mom to my two King Charles Cavalier Spaniels, Duke and Dolce and binging on Netflix until it shames me by asking if I am still watching.

I chose an outfit that would be equally suitable for an internship or going out to lunch with friends! This neutral ensemble is right on trend with light colors for the summer. A snakeskin tank top paired with a pair of khaki-colored shorts is cute and comfortable, especially in the heat of the summer. Camel-colored gladiator sandals and a matching handbag perfectly complement this outfit. Add a statement necklace featuring cream-colored stones and a rose gold watch and this ensemble is complete!
