STYLE GURU BIO: Cassadie Jerdin

My name is Cassadie Jerdin and I am so excited to be representing the University of Oregon here on CollegeFashionista. I am a 21-year-old California native and currently a senior student studying Journalism, Advertising and Anthropology. I believe that you are what you wear and choosing an outfit everyday is the best way to showcase your personality. Whether you consistently choose your lived-in and worn-down denim with a cotton tee, or feel most fierce in a skirt and heels, you’re giving the world a glimpse of your best self. I love looking out for these people who send such a strong message about their personality and am excited to honor their style with a feature on CollegeFashionista every week.

I currently live in Eugene, Oregon while attending the University of Oregon, which has been incredibly impactful on my personal style. People in Eugene embrace adventure and never shy away from creativity. Eugene is no London or New York, but it is nonetheless cutting edge and style crazed. This strong sense of spirit has cultivated an exciting aesthetic in the people who live here, which makes me excited to show off the stylish gems that are tucked away in Eugene.

My personal style changes week-to-week or day-to-day. I like to be fashion forward but maintain classic aspects of fashion that are loved all over the world. My taste and preference in clothing changes so often because I take in my surroundings and feel inspired by new things everyday. I am currently obsessing over bold colors and all things cozy as we approach the cold and rainy months of winter. For my first look, I wanted to mix textures and color to give a sense of what is to come. This bright, Aztec printed cardigan is a fun way to ward off those winter blues, or should I say grays, that come with the next few months. My leather pants add an element of surprise and dress up the look a little to make it versatile and playful. I always accessorize with gold jewelry and consider it one of my true and predictable preferences when it comes to my style.

I hope you feel inspired to lead the Fashionista/o life every time you visit my page. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you next week!
