Like I mentioned in my 650 word rambling about little ole me, I’ve been keeping myself busy with lots of fashion blogging. I’m currently in my third semester of writing for CollegeFashionista as well as my third semester as a social media intern for them. I’ve learned a heap about my own personal style as well as style in general. For example, freshman year Holly wouldn’t think twice about rocking some flip flops for a night on the town. I mean, to each their own, but yikes.
Moving along. While I plan on posting original content under the Rags + Retail section in the future, I thought I’d start off with a little blurb from my latest CollegeFashionista post (and give you some pictures to look at cause your eyes are probably short circuiting from all the text).

As I’ve treaded my way through college, there is no doubt a reflection of the route I’ve taken in my personal style. I’ve never been very good at picking one thing to specialize in or brand myself as. What I mean by this is I wouldn’t just call myself a fashion blogger or sports enthusiast. I wouldn’t even just call myself a dancer. And to me, that’s A-OK. No sense of squeezing myself into a tiny box because it rolls of the tongue better to just call myself a Fashion Blogger or Sports Reporter. What I’m saying is I pride myself in wearing several different hats throughout a given day. In terms of my style, I do the same thing (both figuratively and literally because we all know I love myself a good ball cap). Whether it’s patterns, textures, materials or casual vs. dressy, a go-to Holly outfit blends things together that may not strike you as something that should work together. Cohesive contradictions equal praise hands emoji.
If you would have asked me to wear a fur coat with sneaks at the beginning of my journey at CollegeFashionista I would have probably asked you if you knew who you were talking to. I’ve loved learning more about myself through this experience and becoming more comfortable with broadcasting those realizations through my clothing.
