Hey guys, my name is Logan. I’m currently a second year at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I’m an economics major, but I plan to switch to communications, with a minor in professional writing or English, because the fields of marketing and public relations are better matches for my interests. Coming to this beautiful and accomplished school was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It may live up to the “party school” name, but there’s much more that this campus offers. There’s everything from Greek life, to sports, to concerts and I mean, not many people get to walk outside their front door and see the Pacific Ocean everyday (considering that I’m a beach bum, this is a definite plus). I’ve made many of my closest friends here and can honestly say that my freshman year was one of the best years of my life.

Now, you may wonder why I wanted to be a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. I’ve been interested in fashion since I could remember. Actually, just kidding. In elementary school I used to wear sweatpants to school everyday and basically looked homeless, but that was another lifetime. I believe I started getting into fashion around middle school. Suddenly, I had the urge to go shopping and dress up for class. At one point I even had a YouTube channel dedicated to my personal style, but I ended up making a style blog instead. Over the years, I gradually abandoned my blog due to a lack of free time, however, I plan to start it up once again. I feel that my style is finally at a solid place, where I can brand myself effectively, making for a successful platform. I think this internship is a great opportunity to practice taking pictures and writing about fashion—a good preparation for my blog, as well as a resume builder.

I would generally describe my style as beach-y and boho. For this outfit I threw on a cute little romper that I recently bought from LF. Not only was I charmed by its fun, colorful pattern and strappy back, but also by the fact that it was sixty percent off. Since this romper speaks for itself I did not feel the need to add a ton of accessories. I added my favorite sea-shell embellished choker from Free People, which was just enough for me. To finish off my look, I slipped into some tan booties, again not wanting to take attention away from the romper. This look works perfectly for a day downtown and can easily transition to night, at least on the West Coast.

Thanks for reading, stop by again soon!
