Greetings loved ones! I am Carli Holbrook and this is my first semester being a Style Guru. I was born and raised in Kentucky and will be a senior at the University of Kentucky this fall. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t love being a Wildcat. I major in Merchandising, Apparel and Textiles with a minor in Photography.
I just finished studying abroad for a semester in Milan, Italy at Istituto Europeo Di Design (IED) which is one of the top design schools in Europe. While my focus is not on design, I was able to take classes in art and photography, including black and white darkroom photography and fashion photography. Living in one of the fashion capitals of the world was an amazing experience and something that has pushed me to be even more bold and trendy. For a glimpse of what I experienced abroad, check out my personal blog.
My style is constantly changing every day, as I like to be spontaneous and try new things. One of the reasons I am so in love with fashion is because I think it is a way to be more outgoing and show your personality without even saying anything. I love to take risks and be the girl that everyone stares at for wearing something out of the norm. I also love to take anything and dress it up. One of my favorite things to do is go to professional baseball games and I am always looking for ways to doll up my jersey. My favorite accessory is a good smile but I love every kind of hat and the more lipstick the better.
I am so excited to be a part of the CollegeFashionista team and am ready to show you all the style roaming around Kentucky. From Derby hats to booties to flared jeans, I’ll be sure to keep you all stylish with a southern twist.
