Hi everyone! My name is Amber Smith and I am currently a Junior at the University of Tampa in Tampa, Florida studying public relations and advertising with a minor in marketing. Every week I will be updating you with an article about the different, unique and current trends in fashion that I’ve seen. I will try my best to provide an interesting point of view so readers like all of you will come back to read more!

Classes have just ended for winter intermission and I want to try and focus on the new winter trends. But considering I live in Florida and there is no such thing as winter, I will post what a Florida winter looks like as we transition into hotter summer weather too! As a Style Guru I can’t wait to show what trends I’m into. I would describe my style as Bohemian chic with a classic twist. Some of my inspirations are Audrey Hepburn, Nicole Miller and Rachel Zoe.

Today I am wearing a solid maroon colored, bodycon dress paired with a denim jacket from American Eagle Outfitters. Although this look has pretty basic colors I added a statement piece necklace to pull the look together. Lastly I am wearing one of my favorite pairs of high brown boots that I got from Traffic. They are so comfy and easy to walk in that I love wearing them when it’s a little chilly outside.

During my first semester at CollegeFashionista I am so excited to learn about the ins and outs of what it takes to be a Style Guru. And to my readers, I hope to inspire and guide you into self expression for what it really means to be YOU!
