STYLE GURU BIO: Kristen Edwards

Hello Fashionistas/os! I hope everyone is having a stylish summer (I know I am). I’m SO excited for this upcoming semester and for the opportunity to share my love of fashion and photography with all of you. I am a third year Management student at the University of British Columbia Okanagan and I someday hope to incorporate fashion into my career.

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved planning outfits and going shopping with my mom although it wasn’t just a habit for me; it was an addiction. My family has always said I spend way too much money on clothing and shoes, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, right? I am a struggling shopaholic—it’s a disease. Searching for deals and new trends has become second nature for me. There is no better feeling than throwing on a new outfit and showcasing it for the world to see.

This specific outfit epitomizes my personal style. I love neutral, girly pieces that can be paired with other things from my closet. Accessories are imperative to any outfit for me. I am wearing a leather wrist watch from Daniel Wellington. They are so timeless and elegant and can be paired with absolutely anything. I have chosen to go with a white off-the-shoulder dress to match, and keep this ensemble simple. One thing for certain is that showcasing your tan during the summer is necessary, so wearing a dress with a short hemline helps!

I have just recently become obsessed with the infamous sun hat. It is a great staple piece and has been all the hype for summer fashion this year. I love how it can be paired with a light summery dress on a hot day, or with jeans and a leather jacket in the winter. This casual but classy look is not complete without a cute pair of wedges; perfect for clumsy girls like myself and extremely comfortable.

Well, that’s it for today ladies and gentlemen! Stay tuned for some more RAD articles.
