Hey ya’ll! My name is Kaylin and I’m extremely excited to be a part of CollegeFashionista. I’m a sophomore at Georgia State University, majoring in journalism. I’m also a contributor for The Odyssey Online and a sister of Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity.
My obsession with fashion developed in my tween years, due to my lack of artistic talent. Literally, coloring inside the lines is a struggle for me. Luckily, fashion gave me an outlet for my creativity.
Some of my favorite things to shop for are shoes, jewelry and jumpsuits. Shoes and jewelry are some of the best things you can invest your money in because they can transform an outfit from a three to a ten. As for jumpsuits, nothing can beat them. They’re effortless and comfy, and can be transformed into an amazing outfit with the right accessories and killer shoes.
I think my absolute favorite thing about fashion is how it evolves as we evolve. As you get older, your style changes right before your own eyes and I love that. I’ve especially noticed this as I’ve gotten into my 20s. There’s a confidence and a fearlessness that comes with being older that continues to grow as you continue to mature and that’s something that I try to convey in my outfits. Fashion gives you the freedom to be whomever you want, even if just for a moment. People can get caught up in what’s comfortable for them and don’t realize that slight changes in silhouettes or mixing patterns can really change everything. Getting dressed is a magical experience for me and I can only hope that everyone else can feel that way at some point.
