My name is Julia Grady and I am so excited to be a Style Guru for the spring 2017 semester! I am a freshman at the University of Massachusetts Amherst majoring in marketing. I am more than thrilled to share my fashion knowledge and experiences with you all.

To tell you just a little bit about me: I was born in the amazing city of San Francisco; I was raised in a small town just south of Boston; I would jump at any chance to travel; I have an Australian Shepherd named Luna; I have more jewelry than a girl could ever need and a whole closet filled with shoes. I am an avid coffee and hot chocolate (with extra whip cream) drinker; I would be down for a cup of either any time of the day.

For this outfit I decided to go basic and easy, but with a little edge. I was running out the door to do some errands so I wanted to ensure I would be comfortable for the day. I decided to throw on my favorite, go-to pair of jeans from Urban Outfitters. With that I paired a super basic, scoop neck T-shirt from Old Navy. I realized my outfit needed a little kick so I added one of my favorite jackets. This jacket is similar to the texture of a peacoat, but the style of a biker jacket. I think it is so cool, unique, and can spice up just about any outfit! For shoes I broke out my most comfortable flats, which are from the Gap. They have a pointed toe and a criss-cross in the front. They are simple, classic, and go well with just about everything in my wardrobe.

For accessories I carried my beloved Kate Spade crossbody bag that is a light shade of nude. I bought this bag because I knew it would be the perfect statement piece for any ensemble. Lastly, I decided to add a pair of large, round, wayfarer sunglasses from Ann Taylor Loft to complete my look.

Hope you guys are ready for one stylish semester. Can not wait to share it with you all!
