Let's Talk Fashion

Who or what inspires your style? "I love events like the Grammys and American Music Awards [because I get to] see my favorite celebrities like Selena Gomez! I also love to search Pinterest for new ideas."

Where do you like to shop? "On my tight college budget, I shop at Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Francesca's and Topshop. You can find great pieces for less."

Why did you choose this particular outfit? "It's comfortable, simple, and I really wanted the jacket to be the statement piece of my outfit." 

How would you describe your sense of style? "I would describe my style as trendy, bohemian, and feminine. I love to mix up my look. I can dress boho one day and wear a pink floral look the next!"

What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? "Pick an outfit that you feel really confident in and use that as inspiration to create other outfits. Don't be afraid to create your own look."

What are your favorite trends right now? "I'm a big fan of soft pink colors, metallics, and of course denim which is always a classic."

Do you have any favorite fashion designers? If so who? "I love Prada, Chanel, and Hermes. I wish I had more from these collections, but not on this college budget."

What do you do for fun? Do you have any unique hobbies or interests? "Nothing in particular. I'm like any other college girl. I love shopping and spending time with friends and family." 

If you could raid anyone's closet, who would it be and why? "Lauren Conrad. We both have a love for feminine styles. She is always on trend and has the perfect outfit for any occasion."
