STYLE GURU BIO: Kathleen Carr

January 6th, 2016 at 2:00am

Hello! My name is Kathleen Carr and I am a fashion merchandising student at Bay State College in Boston, Massachusetts.

The phrase I would use to describe myself is sassy and style-obsessed. Clothes are my life. Fashion has always been the direction I wanted to take in life. However, it took me three years of college to decide this and actually make it happen. I was an anthropology student, and felt that I was simply going through the motions and not actually learning things that would be helpful for me to build a career in the field I so desired.

So before my senior year, I took a year off. I moved to Boston, and am now a fashion merchandising student and could not be happier. It was the best decision I’ve made thus far and I couldn’t be more positive that it was the right one.

I grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, so my style has always had a beach influence to it. As my style has evolved, it has become much more simplistic. I have come to focus more in the accessories such as a coat or a good pair of sneakers to make statements with my outfits. Day-to-day, I am more casual, but I love to get dressed up when I go out and heels are a must.

This outfit is one of my favorite types of looks. The shirt is actually a crop top just tucked in at the bottom. I love pairing something like this long tight skirt, which gives a little fancier look, with sneakers to make it a more casual, everyday look.

I look forward to this semester as a Style Guru!
