STYLE GURU BIO: Cindy Kabiru

May 26th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hello there, fashion lovers! I’m Cindy and I am absolutely thrilled to serve as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista this summer. Reporting from the sunny campus of the University of Florida, I intend to share the easy breezy looks of my most stylish peers. With temperatures steadily rising, expect to see plenty of cut-offs and sun-bleached Birkenstocks in my posts. When the summer reaches a boiling point in June, I’ll bid farewell to my UF pals and say hello to a city that has been dubbed the “American Riviera” or more commonly known as Santa Barbara! In case you couldn’t already tell, I am all heart eyed Emoji about what this summer has in store.

As a beach devotee, my bicoastal summer is a dream come true. I am particularly enamored with the effortless ensembles associated with the seaside. Where else can one find key accessories like a bright smile and a cackle of a laugh? Also, due to the high temperatures, barely-there makeup looks are du jour and I couldn’t be happier about it. Thankfully, CollegeFashionista allows fashion lovers like me to wax poetically about mirrored sunglasses and beach-ready espadrilles!

For me, the word “style” is all about independence. The freedom to portray yourself with your clothes is a personal experience. Rather than focusing on trends, I believe it’s much more fulfilling to wear what makes you feel good. If you’re happy and feel confident in your look, then you should rock it, no matter what the magazines say you should or shouldn’t wear. After all, your personal style is a reflection of your identity, so showcase your best self.

If you wish to follow my posts as I go across the country this summer or you’re simply a fan of white-on-white outfits, then be sure to register with CollegeFashionista so that you can follow and RAD my articles!
