Hello, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Erika and I’m back for my second semester as a CollegeFashionista Style Guru. This semester is quite difficult to give you a preview of because quite honestly, I have no idea what this fall will bring! At this point all I can promise you are some killer outfits and fun editorial pieces. In addition to Style Guru-ing, I’ll also be a member of the CollegeFashionista Social Media Style Guru team! This basically means you can check out my Instagram for constant postings of my outfit and adventure photography. This semester, I’m going to be taking some online classes and hopefully doing some fun traveling, so be on the lookout!

I’d describe my personal style as slightly glam and slightly granola girl. I’ve always chosen comfortable over cute and leaned towards neutral colors. Growing up just outside of New York City, black is essential and prominent in my daily wardrobe. I absolutely love supporting small brands and boutiques, especially those who are philanthropically minded. In addition to my interest in fashion, I would love to use my Marketing degree to work with lifestyle brands and philanthropies, especially through social media.

This LBD outfit is my current favorite. I love this dress because it is incredibly comfortable, can be dressed up or down and allows me to chow on a burger without a worry. Paired with Arizona Birkenstock sandals, a Free People strappy bra,and a sporty leather backpack, you’ve got a typical Erika outfit.
