Welcome, I’m Jessica! I’m a junior at Marquette University studying public relations, advertising and marketing. This is also my second semester at CollegeFashionista. I’m from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and trust me it’s a whole lot more than just beer and cheese. Even though I do love calling Milwaukee home, I see myself living somewhere bigger and warmer in the future. There are only so many Wisconsin winters you can handle before you call it quits and move to California.
Fashion has a big impact on my life. I love keeping up with the latest trends and finding unique styles that I can incorporate into my own style. It’s almost like a hobby for me. My fashion sense has changed a lot over the years but one thing that doesn’t change is my love for the color black. It’s just so classy and can literally go with anything. I also love, love, love handbags. I feel like my outfit isn’t complete unless I have the perfect purse to go along with it. It doesn’t matter if it’s from kate spade, Rebecca Minkoff or H&M. I don’t discriminate. I just want them all.
One accessory I think everyone should have for winter is over-the-knee boots. They keep the snow out, keep your legs warm and are super stylish. I’ve been obsessed with over-the-knee boots for some time and I’m very happy to see many brands catching on to this trend and coming out with new designs. Another item that has gotten pretty popular are ponchos. Ponchos are awesome because you can wear them over a dress or a casual shirt and leggings and not matter what, your outfit will still look good. This holiday season I’ve been seeing a lot of clutches. I think that they can dress your outfit up and make it look very elegant, which is perfect for when you’re attending a Christmas party or seeing the Nutcracker ballet.
