What’s up Fashionistas/os?!
I’m Maddie. A little about me: I never describe myself as “fashionable.” I wear what makes me feel good and sometimes that means a onesie and a ponytail. Other times, that means some leather leggings with a killer top and heels (completely ignoring my obnoxious height). Normally you’ll find me in denim shorts and a t-shirt with my hair in a high messy bun considering my usually unwashed hair.
My personal style includes a lot of basics with a few fun accessories mixed in such as some giant sunglasses, my favorite watch or a few delicate rings. A few staples: a good pair of denim high-waisted shorts, sneakers (I’m a dancer which means my feet are almost never in great shape) and a bold matte lipstick.
Even though on some days I feel like dressing a little more basic, I still appreciate the amazing personal style the other Fashionistas/os at the University of Iowa exude. Iowa City is a pretty creative area meaning a lot of people love to experiment with their style I love getting the opportunity to highlight them in my articles!
When I’m not Fashionista-ing, you may find me making lattes at a local coffee shop, working on summer homework (sigh), blogging or at the dance hall to practice. Occasionally, I find some time to roam the beautiful Iowa City looking for adventure.
My motto: wear what makes you feel good!
I hope you enjoy my articles as much as I enjoy writing them!
