STYLE GURU BIO: Ashley Farraher

Hey Fashionistas! My name is Ashley. I am a communications major at Illinois State University. This is my first semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista, and I can not be more excited!

I have been involved with fashion all my life, and felt as though this was the perfect opportunity to take my knowledge to the next level. I firmly believe it is important to empower others and oneself. Fashion does this for me, fashion gives me a window of comfort and confidence in my everyday life. My style icon is Lauren Conrad. From Laguna Beach days to The Hills I have always leaned on her sense of style. In addition to LC, I find most of my style inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram.

For this look, I decided to throw some edge to an everyday outfit. The black distressed skinny jeans pop against a simple beige top. I paired this outfit with an adorable black lace up heel to give the outfit height. This outfit can be worn on a night out on the town or to dinner with the girls! Another great statement piece I used to pull the outfit together was a longer marble stone necklace. The detail on the necklace keeps the look neutral but trendy!

In my future articles I hope to tackle popular trends, and also natural beauty. Make sure to follow me on social media to keep up with my posts! I can not wait to share my looks with you all this fall!
