STYLE GURU BIO: Kaitlin Petroni

What’s up my fellow Fashionistas/os? Let me introduce myself! My name is Kaitlin Petroni and I am a junior at the amazing University of South Carolina. As an SC native, I LOVE my school! I also adore the Retail and Fashion Merchandising program that I am majoring in. Although it wasn’t my first choice, (dad wanted me to be a doctor) I am so excited to be pursuing something that I love.

Here is a brief history on my style as a Fashionista; I went through my classic middle school uniform stage of collared shirts and khaki shorts only to branch out to something far from preppy. I became more of what I like to call minimal and chic, with a little bohemian flare. I love basic pieces from Brandy Melville, tattoos (I have three), wearing rings on as many fingers as possible and sometimes as much black as is acceptable in a single outfit. You can find me in anything from my favorite high-waisted, light wash jeans and a crop top, to an all-black outfit matched with my newest pair of Free People lace-up black wedges.

When I am not checking out my campus in search of other Fashionistas/os you can almost always find me with my adorable kitten Lyla. I am a cat freak. I also love to online shop, because who doesn’t? Seriously, I have a problem! Free People, NASTY GAL and Revolve are all places I frequently visit online. Click the links above to see my favorite picks of the moment! Lets just say I have the shopping app for all of the above online stores on my phone…oops!

I love fashion and I love trends but most of all I adore the classics. One look in my closet and you won’t miss the basic leather jacket, the white ribbed tank top and the comfiest pair of boyfriend jeans you’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to share the inside of my closet with you all, along with all the fun fashion and beauty tips and advice I have up my Fashionista sleeve!
