STYLE GURU BIO: Eryn Larsen

May 27th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hello all! It seems like yesterday, one nice day in March that I was the one having my pictures taken for CollegeFashionista by a fellow Style Guru; how the tables have turned! My name is Eryn and I will be a sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln come this fall semester. I am majoring in Fashion Merchandising while minoring in both Business and Spanish.

My friends like to refer to me as, “The one they call when things go wrong.” Usually this is because of some sort of wardrobe malfunction they have acquired. It’s a saying that I have grown accustomed to and it makes me feel triumphant knowing that I am part of the reason my friends look so fabulous on a Friday night.

As the year 2014 came to a close, my wardrobe took a more professional turn compared to my casual chic look. I was hired as a sales associate at our kate spade new york outlet shopping center and I grew more interested in pencil skirts and pointed-toe flats. Though, when I am not on the floor selling designer purses and helping consumers to their perfect dress size, I still go back to wearing my favorite distressed jeans and knitted cardigan on the laid-back Lincoln campus. Usually with a coffee in hand, probably a paper or two in the other and speed-walking towards a class I am clearly late for. Whoops!

Luckily for me though, summer has arrived and I couldn’t be happier. Summer to me is all about creating memories and looking cute while doing it. I recently came across the swing-dress and couldn’t be more excited with how comfy and effortlessly chic this dress looks. Don’t be surprised when you see me rocking the flower headbands and a swing-dress from time to time this summer.

While I turn to my personal style and Pinterest to help create new looks for the day, I am more intrigued with how street style has become a more popular way to express the clothes we live in and love so much. So, don’t be alarmed when you’re walking through downtown Lincoln and notice an unfamiliar face staring intently at the gorgeous sun hat you have paired with your cat-eye sunglasses and jean jacket. Just smile and let me introduce myself and take a couple photos.
