Yep, it's official - I will be transferring to Kent State University in the fall to study fashion merchandising! Of course, I have to get pass all my classes first to determine whether I get into the Fashion School or not, but I have high hopes and I believe I can achieve my goal. I'm just excited to be at Kent State, the campus and school itself is so cool!
As thrilled and ambitious as I feel, it's so difficult to leave Malone University where I've made so many friendships and memories that I'm thankful for and will always cherish. I do believe; however, that God has called me to pursue the dreams He has given me, and I believe going to Kent will help me make those dreams a reality. And my Malone friends and church friends will all only be 20-30 minutes away, so I'll still get to see them as much as I can.
And of course, the best way to celebrate a new beginning in college is to write a new fashion blog post to show my pride! I bought this sweater from Woolly Threads immediately after I committed to attending the university. It's so cozy, cute, and perfect for a college fashionista like me. I know it's summer and it's super hot out right now, but I've already worn it twice! And yes, I did sweat a little ... but it was worth it.
I'm so obsessed with my new tomgirl jeans from American Eagle , they're basically my first pair of super ripped boyfriend jeans which I love. They're comfy, I love the color, and it makes me look fierce as if I just fought off a leopard! Of course, that is a reference to my favorite leopard print loafers from Madewell which I've had for almost four years now and I still love.
But hey, ripped boyfriends jeans are trending and rocking, so it's safe to say that I can now rock them!
I can't wait to see where these next few years take me, whether that would mean helping out with one of the biggest college fashion shows in the US or studying abroad in Italy (or even meet Victoria Beckham at Fashion Week, who knows!) I'm already am awaiting to start this new beginning and I'm going to take every great opportunity that I can find to help me down the road.
I "Kent" wait to finally open the new chapter of my life and take on the fashion industry!
