It feels so good that I can finally say it is summer. But it also feels so scary that this is my last summer as a college undergrad. I mean this is my last hoorah. However, I am so happy that part of this final summer break includes my sixth semester as a Style Guru with CollegeFashionista.
Hi everyone, my name is Gabrielle and I graduate from the University of Florida this December…oh goodness. I started out at as Style Guru at the start of my sophomore year and ever since then, CollegeFashionista has continued to bring me personal happiness and growing success. Not only is writing about fashion and beauty something I love to do and feel confident in doing, but also it has provided me with so many opportunities within and on the outside of CollegeFashionista.
Everything I have learned from CollegeFashionista has helped shape me as a young professional soon joining the workforce. With CollegeFashionista on my resumé, I have been able to have so many amazing internships including two with HSN, one last summer as a fashion stylist and my current internship with them as a marketing intern.
My outfit today reflects my style for most of the summer, as I work in a business casual atmosphere. I think that just because I’m working in an office doesn’t mean I have to dress boring. When went shopping for all of my outfits for my job I fell in love with “work clothes.” I absolutely love this classic, but trendy office look, because I feel like it can easily transition for a night out with an addition of a high sleek pony and some chunky heels. My outfit includes black tailored ankle pants from J.Crew, a white T-shirt with a chiffon draping in the back and color-block pointed toe flats. I layered short and long gold and smoke colored necklaces and added a pop of color with my NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Never Say Never.
I hope you enjoy my posts this semester and get some fresh inspiration for the summer season. While I may soon have to become what they all call an “adult”, I will always remember one thing that CollegeFashionista taught me, to always stay rad.
