STYLE GURU BIO: Lyndsey Jackson

Hi ya’ll! I am super excited to introduce you to my Style Guru page!

*Insert Jay-Z voice here*
Now, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Lyndsey Jackson,and I am a sophomore public relations and Spanish double major at the University of Georgia. I’m also completing a certificate in new media—since I am a self-proclaimed tech nerd.

When I am not found in a club meeting or a study room, you can find me blogging or flipping through my collection of magazines and fashion books. Since middle school, fashion blogs and magazines have given me a glimpse into the fashion world, from personal street style on the sidewalks of France to the influences of popular fashion and beauty editors. However, even before my middle school days, I have always had an interest in fashion and individuality. You will always (and I do emphasize always) see me with a purse strapped on my shoulder, rings on my fingers and a pair of earrings dangling from ears. Over-accessorizing isn’t a word in my vocabulary.

As I have gotten older, I have found myself maturing my style into a balance of comfort, cool-ness and pop. I appreciate bold contrasts whether it be strong prints with softer details in the accessories, mixing colors such as black and white for a sporty-cute look or dressing up a plain white T-shirt with bold hoop earrings and wedges. I appreciate comfort-ability, and it is always a necessity when you are running from class to class, staying involved on campus and trying to make it on time for work! However, with comfort-ability, I keep my style first in order to express who I am and how I feel.

My look features one of my favorite summertime rompers from one of my favorite stores: JCPenney. The print is vibrant and lifts up my mood instantly! The lace-up, nude flats from DSW add the perfect dainty detail to any of my looks without overpowering the other pieces. I went minimal with my accessories with a small pair of gold studs, a Pandora charm bracelet and a Betsey Johnson watch.

P.S. I also love cookie dough ice cream, have a slightly weird obsession with owl jewelry, watching hair and make-up videos and a multitude of other things you can learn about by following on my Style Guru journey!

Have a ultra-RAD semester Fashionistas/os!
