STYLE GURU BIO: Katelyn Sampl

Hi stylish friends! My name is Katelyn Sampl and I am so excited to return this spring as a CollegeFashionista Style Guru. This will be my sixth semester with CollegeFashionista and I am looking forward to the opportunities that will come this spring. I am a junior at Florida State University and I am studying retail merchandising and product development. I am the president of an on-campus retail organization called AATCC. We have guest speakers, take trips to places like Atlanta for the Atlanta Apparel Mart and put on a fashion show every semester. I am also a fashion director of Clutch magazine. I have a strong love for fashion and I love putting outfits together and searching for new trends.

During the summer, I like to dress in light-weight items such as sundresses, rompers and shorts. I would describe my style as bohemian and casual when the weather is warm and breezy. Since I live in Florida, the weather is mostly warm which makes it easier to throw on an easy romper or tank top. During the cooler months, I like to layer my clothes to create a more styled look. I am able to keep many of my summer items on, but then add a sweater or leather jacket to cover up.

This outfit is a perfect example of adding a long sweater to a cute and casual look while taking it from summertime to winter or fall chic. The black extra-long sweater adds length to the outfit. My striped blouse is a great option to style underneath a sweater, denim jacket or leather jacket. I made the rips in my ripped boyfriend jeans myself and they have become my favorite pair of distressed denim! My lace up black flats complete the look.

Follow along with my style and CollegeFashionista posts throughout this semester! Thanks for reading and stay stylish.
