Hi guys! My name is Colleen and this will be my first semester as a Style Guru. I could not be more excited! I am a freshman at the University of South Carolina, majoring in retail with an emphasis in fashion merchandising. I live about 40 minutes from New York City in Westchester, NY. I absolutely love New York but felt it was time for a change and I knew the South would be perfect for that. I am extremely passionate for fashion and all things that involve creativity so I can’t wait to see where CollegeFashionista takes me.
My style changes pretty frequently but right now I am into a more edgy and chic kind of style. Denim jackets are my go-to right now and work perfectly with any outfit I put together. Chelsea boots are a most in my wardrobe and currently I own about three different pairs. I have really been into wearing hoop earrings as a statement piece. This outfit is what I would wear on a school day or even a weekend around campus. Depending on my mood of the day, my style can shift from wearing neutral dark tones to lighter more vibrant colors. Being in South Carolina has really opened me up to experimenting in fashion and I am eager for what my spring semester will bring.
Besides from fashion, I absolutely love photography, beauty, and art. This internship is perfect for me because I can connect fashion, photography, beauty, and art together. Ever since I was gifted my Canon Rebel, I have been taking pictures wherever I go. Whether I am photographing my friends or random people at school or in the city, I am inspired by each photograph. Art and fashion has allowed me to be myself and step out of my comfort zone.
Being a part of CollegeFashionista is such an honor and I am so thankful for this opportunity. I hope you guys enjoy my posts and stay tuned for what is coming next!
