STYLE GURU BIO: Madison O'Keefe

Bonjour! The name is Maddy, short for Madison. I am thrilled to begin my second semester as a Style Guru. This past semester was an amazing experience for me and really let me showcase my love for fashion. In my short time as a Style Guru, I have learned so much about myself and other trendsetters. I cannot wait for what spring 2017 has to offer me as a Style Guru!

As some of you may already know, I am a freshman, starting my second semester at the University of North Florida. Even though I am still new to this whole college thing and miss my golden retriever at home, I have my mind set on majoring in public relations and pursuing my dream of blossoming into an event planner in NYC (with my sister, of course!). But until my dreams come true, I will be living the college experience on my beautiful campus that I adore!

Fashion speaks to me. Fashion is my escape from reality. I am constantly following all of the newest trends and recreating the dopest looks. I believe that fashion is the best way to present your creativity and personality. No matter who you are, you know what trends speak to you. What we wear can represent ourselves and our uniqueness. Currently, I am living for chokers and off-the-shoulder shirts—but who’s not? Looking into history, it’s mind-blowing to see how fashion repeats itself. Who would have known that those tight little necklaces that were popular in the 1970s and 1990s would come back around to make a bold statement in 2016 and 2017? Anyways, I am totally loving it.

City’s in the winter are excessively chilly and it is essential to make sure you are prepared for bundle season. In my photos, I am modeling my favorite oversize sweater dress paired with a simple black infinity scarf. Big cities also mean a lot of walking, so it is important to wear sneakers or boots that withstand miles and miles of walking.
