STYLE GURU BIO: Kristin Stahlke

May 29th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hey there, Fashionistas! My name is Kristin Stahlke and I am currently a sophomore at DePaul University currently studying to earn degrees in both Public Relations and Journalism with a minor in Women and Gender Studies. My two passions in life are fashion and music and I would absolutely love to work in both of those fields when I graduate. In my spare time, I like to write about my passions in my blog, www.chicagohaze.com.

I have lived in the suburbs of Illinois my entire life and have always loved being in the city, which made my decision for studying at DePaul a pretty simple one to make. I discovered my passion for fashion in high school when I became mature enough to create a personal style for myself. I tend to wear more neutral colors and my outfits are usually monochromatic. I am a strong believer in the color black, which makes up most of my wardrobe. I like shopping for pieces that can be worn in a variety of different ways. I love statement jewelry, specifically necklaces, and I have recently really been in to watches.

My style icons are definitely Taylor Swift and Lauren Conrad. I admire their ability to always look put together, which is something I always strive to do in my outfits. I am rarely seen without my gold DKNY watch to add a bit of color to my outfits along with my Alex & Ani bracelet. My go to pair of booties are definitely my Franco Sarto Chelsea Boots.

Attending college in the beautiful city of Chicago is absolutely amazing. Being surrounded by so much culture and diversity is awe inspiring and being able to explore the city is something that everyone should be able to experience. I am so excited to share Chicago’s well dressed population with you all and I can’t wait to get started.
