Hi fellow Style Gurus! I’m Meryl and I’m going to be a sophomore at the University of Denver majoring in communication with a minor in psychology and marketing.

I was born and raised in a small city just outside Phoenix, Arizona. I have always been passionate about fashion and beauty as well as writing and blogging, so I was psyched about becoming a Style Guru! I believe accessorizing is the key to making any outfit unique and stylish and I would describe my style as girly with some edge. My current obsessions are traveling, chokers, vintage, sushi, Instagram, high-waisted jeans, awesome sneakers and watching “Tasty” videos. It was definitely an adjustment moving from a place at hot as Arizona to Denver which has pretty significant snowfall in the winter. I definitely had to adjust my wardrobe and I can’t wait to write about what I’m wearing in the winter too.

I aspire to one day work for a well-known fashion brand and live in the city. I have a little bit of experience blogging after starting my own lifestyle blog several months ago. In this look I’m wearing a jean skirt I recently got from LF, a Free People belt and a white off-the-shoulder top I also got from LF. I added a choker—because I think everything looks better with a choker—and light gray booties. My favorite brands are Tom Ford, Burberry, Stuart Weitzman and Topshop. I’m so excited for this fall and can’t wait to photograph and write about my favorite outfits.
