Hey Fashionistas! My name is Meghan Dare, and I am so excited to share my summer with you all as a Style Guru! I am currently a rising junior at Syracuse University (which is so crazy to me) where I spent this past semester as a Style Guru! At school, I study retail and marketing management in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management and hope to one day work for a major fashion label as a merchandiser or in the marketing department.

I would describe my style as classic with a sleek and contemporary flare. Some of my favorite brands that I seek inspiration from include: Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen, Burberry and so many more!

I absolutely LOVED spending this past semester as a Style Guru. I was able to share some inspiration that I found around campus, as well as discover so many Syracuse Fashionistas. Being a Style Guru also allowed me to evolve as I learned more about blogging, photography, different trends and the fashion industry itself. Becoming a Style Guru is one of the best decisions I made as a college student, and I am so excited to continue this summer as a writer and continue to grow in this position.

This summer I will be sharing more college fashion with you all from New York City! I will be spending my summer in Manhattan as a visual merchandising intern and cannot wait to share more Style Guru advice from one of the fashion capitals of the world!

So for my first post of the summer, I decided to wear my favorite new romper, which I bought at a local boutique in Syracuse. I paired my romper with my favorite Michael Kors tote, classic aviator sunglasses and heeled booties!
