STYLE GURU BIO: Ally Washburn

Hello again to all of you lovely Fashionistas/os! I am so excited to be back as a Style Guru this fall, and I am pumped to take you all on this journey with me. I am a sophomore at Pepperdine University, and I cannot wait to get back to Malibu. There is one small twist though. This year I will be studying in Switzerland, so instead of those beach style pictures, I will be sharing street style finds from all over Europe. Get ready for an exciting semester, because I am so ready!

Here’s a little bit about myself. I am an only child, and I have loved almost every second of growing up as an only child. I always had the freedom to be my own person, and that included my fashion choices. As a young child, my mom always had me dressed in cute clothes she found at fabulous baby stores. I think because of her I continued choosing unique styles as I grew older.

I have loved fashion for as long as a I can remember. I love trying new styles and creating a look that really defines who I am. Currently, you will never find me without my kate spade purse and Ray-Bans. These are my two go-to pieces that are always within arms reach. I tend to wear a lot of neutral colors and short boots as well. After going to school in Malibu for a year, I feel as if my style has become a bit more simplistic since there was never a need for multiple layers and bold patterns. My closet consisted of lots of flowy dresses and simple shorts and shirts.

I am so excited to take all of you on my European journey this semester, and I can not wait to see what this year holds!
