STYLE GURU BIO: Katelyn Sampl

Hey fashion lovers! My name is Katelyn Sampl and I am beginning my first year at Florida State University. I am majoring in Retail Merchandising and Product Development with a minor in Entrepreneurship. I am beyond excited to pursue a career in the fashion world because I have a huge passion for fashion. I dream of being a retail buyer for a store such as Nordstrom or Bloomingdales, becoming a fashion editor for a magazine or having many clients as a personal stylist. I want to travel with my career and potentially living in Los Angeles, New York or even thinking of working abroad excites me.

I began writing for CollegeFashionista this past summer and I have fallen in love with being a Style Guru. It is such a great opportunity to meet new people and write about fashion trends. This will be such a RAD fall semester because I will be able to scout Fashionistas/os across the FSU campus and blog about the fashion trends and styles that I come across. I have a style and fashion blog on Instagram called Luv2Styl. I post and tag clothes from retailers like T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and Gap, which promotes and advertises for their brands.

This outfit is inspired by the end of summer and classes beginning soon. Peplum tops and dresses are such an easy and perfect way to look cute and stylish this school year. I paired this pale yellow peplum shirt with a pair of dark navy shorts. I added a Longchamp tote, a pair of sunglasses to protect my eyes from the bright Tallahassee sun, and a watch. My shoes are Ivanka Trump and were purchased from Macy’s. I love the extra bling on my sandals that dress up my look.

Being a part of CollegeFashionista is so great and I am honored that I am able to add it to my fashion portfolio and resumé!
