Hello, fellow Fashionistas/os!

My name is Jen O’Neil, and this is my second semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista! I am a junior at Illinois State University. I can’t wait to kick off 2017 by exploring trendy adventures with all of you!

I’ve always had a knack for pairing simple pieces together and creating a masterpiece. Before my first semester as a Style Guru, I found that though I loved fashion, I was not being as creative as I potentially could have been because I didn’t have anyone to share my love for fashion with. No worries: throughout the last semester, I have not only become more creative, but have also been able to collaborate with many other Fashionistas/os to become an even more fashionable version of myself!

My goal this semester is to bring you fashionable alternatives in replacement of everyday norms! My motto for the outfit I’m wearing is “no coat, no problem.” I’m wearing a fur vest that covers the crucial areas in cold weather, such as my neck, chest, and torso. I’m also wearing warm, tall boots in replacement of pants or leggings. This look was so popular during 2016, and I expect it to stay throughout 2017.

This semester, I plan to bring to you my own personal website where you can find life hacks, beauty and fashion blogs, and makeup tutorials! But, for now, follow me on all social media for the exclusive details on my articles, behind the scenes photos, and my personal style @jenlaurren07.

I hope that you are all as excited as I am! 2017 will be a big year, but if we work together we can make it #RAD! Thanks for reading, stay tuned!
