STYLE GURU BIO: Samantha Martin

Hey Fashionistas! It’s about time that we are all back in school but that certainly doesn’t mean we can’t still have some fun in the meantime. My name is Samantha, and I am so thrilled to be starting my fall 2016 internship with CollegeFashionista! Working with CollegeFashionista is an exciting opportunity for me because it combines two of my favorite things—writing and fashion! As a communication major at Philadelphia University, I love style that correlates with the vibes of the city. A rooftop park in Philadelphia is a great way to represent this bright and beautiful city; it perfectly blends my simple style and love for city fashion.

Living in the city, there is definitely some pressure to always look fashionable, but who said it has to be hard? One of my favorite things to do in order to give my look a step up is by using a statement shoe. The ripped skinny jeans from Charlotte Russe and crop top from PacSun, that I am featuring in my photos, could be described as a very casual outfit. However, with the use of a wedged shoe, my outfit goes from casual to cute in an instant! I would definitely describe this look as something that could be worn day or night. Here, I wear it as a daytime outfit, but it could be easily made a night look with the right use of makeup and accessories.

It can be hard to find the right statement shoe, but I have found that a nude pair of wedges can go with so many pieces of clothing and really add a nice finish to any look! While this is one of my more simple looks, I am looking forward to sharing more with you this semester, Fashionistas! Until next time!
