About Amy

Hi! I'm Amy, a pre-med student at St. Lawrence University (voted the preppiest school in America!), studying everything I can get my hands on, and trying to master web programming in my spare time.

I'm absolutely obsessed with interior design, and can usually be found wearing chunky knit sweaters in local bookstores with my customary green tea latte in hand. Besides my love for fashion (especially anything nautical-inspired), I adore baking, classical music, O. Henry's short stories, graphic design, Chipotle, grammar, typography, and sushi. I also am perpetually cheerful. I draw fashion inspiration from quite a few sources, especially Rachel Bilson, Emma Watson, The Devil Wears Prada and Brooks Brothers catalogs.

I have recently begun to harbor a burgeoning passion for blazers of all shapes and sizes, and am slowly but surely increasing my collection from my measly three. Also, if you present me with a Chipotle burrito, we are sure to share a long and fruitful friendship.

I'm always happy to take article requests and to listen to anything else you have to say. Follow me on Twitter if you want instantaneous updates on my exploits, or read my blog at Huffington Post College!
