Hello, my name is Molly Rojek. I am beginning my junior year at Oregon State University this fall pursuing a degree in merchandising management. This is my first term being apart of the CollegeFashionista team and I am beyond excited to see where this journey takes me!

I was born and raised in Oregon. In my free time I enjoy attending music festivals and concerts with friends, working out, online shopping (of course) and adventuring within my surroundings. Ever since I was little, I have always loved fashion and everything about it. From flipping through fashion magazines to following my mom around the mall to helping style friends is what shaped my passion for fashion. I love how fashion is used as a form of self-expression and art. I also love how you can change up your look and style from day to day to help shape who you want to be.

My personal style is inspired by festival fashion on most days. I adore the bohemian, effortless and edgy look that correlates with festivalgoers. Lately, some of my favorite trends include: chokers, fringe, bandanas, bolo ties, and graphic T-shirts. I first started seeing these trends at Coachella Music and Arts Festival this last spring and am now seeing them all over social media, celebrities and even my friends.

For this look, I pared a satin finish cheetah print skirt, with a black V-neck crop top. I usually don’t tend to lean towards such bold statement pieces but once I saw this skirt in stores, I knew I had to have it. To complete the look I, of course, had to compliment the outfit with a gold layered necklace and black choker. Lastly I decided to pair my favorite black Jeffery Campbell cutout booties.

I am beyond excited to be apart of the CollegeFashionista blogging community. I look forward to sharing my favorite looks and trends with you.
