Hey there Fashionistas, I’m excited to be back and kicking off 2017 with you all! For those of you who don’t already know me, I’m Tori! After a bit of jumping around, I have migrated south from my home state of Maryland, and am currently pursuing my degree in art and design at North Carolina State University. Having lived in Raleigh for a few years now, it’s safe to say I have found fashion forward babes with styles ranging across the board, and I can’t wait to share more of them with you all!
I have been an avid lover of fashion for as long as I can remember, and have enjoyed every second of building my own style and the growth that comes with that challenge. I am not someone who could describe their aesthetic to you—so when I say “growth”, the changes are constant. I modify my looks according to season and ever-evolving trends, leaving what doesn’t work for me and modifying what I enjoy to work for my wardrobe and personality. Beyond fashion, I have been absolutely obsessed with photography since I was 13 and shooting with my dad’s old film camera. As my love of fashion grew, I combined it with the art form that I had grown so fond of, thus turning two hobbies into one passion. My love for photography and my intense appreciation for true style is why I love being a part of the CollegeFashionista community, and am so happy to be back and sharing with people who enjoy the same things!
While I do not subscribe to a set style, I find myself consistently keeping it simple. For this look, I paired my go-to high-waisted jeans with a white crop top and a black trench coat. I love the contrast of colors and styles—pairing the casual elements with a more formal outer layer makes for a great every day outfit. To add a little flare to my simple ensemble I threw on a neck scarf, which is a current obsession of mine. If you think about it, a neckerchief is essentially a super versatile, classy choker, and we all love chokers don’t we? To top it off I went for my favorite neutral bag and platform kicks. This is a pretty standard winter outfit for me, although I would hardly call 65 degrees in January winter!
Thanks for taking the time to read about me, and stay tuned for a great semester full of fashion from Raleigh!
