Hello fashion lovers and anyone else who may stumble upon here. My name is Jarui and I’m beyond ecstatic to serve as a Style Guru for the CollegeFashionista team. As I go into my junior year at the University of Louisville, I can’t wait to share all I have learned from being a part of the college community the last two years! But before we start upon that, here’s a little background into me.

Unlike most of the Fashionistas you may come across, fashion was definitely not one of my strong points growing up. In fact, I would prefer wearing what most call their “bum clothes” as opposed to some jeans and a t-shirt. Not to mention that the thought of wearing a skirt or a dress would have me in a fit within seconds. But who knows what miracle happened during my preteen phase where instead of hating clothes, I started to become obsessed with them. Now the chance of spotting me wearing sweats is as likely as finding a white squirrel on Louisville’s campus-very rare and unlikely.

As I use this much-needed summer break to try and categorize my fashion sense in a few specific words, I can say this; I am a huge fan of color and design. Even if my entire outfit consists of black and white, there is a lot to be said about minimal accessories that can add that perfect pop of color to any look. Also, surprisingly enough, although I couldn’t stand dresses and skirts a decade ago, now I can’t go on without them. As you can see with my outfit, I am wearing a leaf printed dress that I paired with nude woven espadrilles, large studded earrings, a small Nine West clutch, a simple Fossil watch and a few colorful bracelets to complete the look.

Vacationing means time to sit back, relax and enjoy what life in store for you, so I plan on doing just that and bringing it back to show it all to you. I am excited to see what this season has in store for us, and I can’t wait to share all the trends and styles that I come across this summer. Join me as I embark on the journey of rediscovering Louisville and the fashion that it holds within.
