Hi guys! My name is Zoda Carey and I am a second year public relations major at Florida State University. This is my first semester writing for CollegeFashionista and I am extremely excited to have this opportunity to hone my writing and photography skills, explore fashion trends and of course connect with other Style Gurus!

Born and raised on the outskirts of Fort Lauderdale, Florida there always has been a diverse group of people who express themselves in countless ways. South Florida has so many opportunities for a growing artist in any realm, which is where my passion for art arose and flourished.

I chose to apply to be a Style Guru because I plan to work in fashion PR, which is simply public relations in the fashion world, and I knew this would be a great place to start. Plus it combines two of my favorite pastimes: fashion and writing!

My individual style is 100 percent dictated by my mood—oh yeah, and the weather. Sometimes I even surprise myself with what I put on. I like to think that fashion, like all art, has no boundaries, so neither do I. My only rule when it comes to fashion and style is: OWN IT!

So this summer you can catch me following trends in all areas of fashion. I especially love the denim on denim comeback, as you can see. A blue denim jacket paired with high-waist distressed black denim jeans and topped off with blue denim Keds for a simple yet fashionable look. Sunglasses are a must when you live in Florida, so I chose a pair of thin, blue reflective glasses to perfectly accent the look.
