Back to School Feature: Introducing Taylor Brione

Back to school season is upon us, and today I'm featuring Taylor Brione, a busy college student who shows us how to be stylish while juggling multiple roles. A lover of all things pink and fab, Taylor also shares some fashion wisdom with her fellow student stylistas.  It is my pleasure to introduce Taylor and her blog Taylor Brione

So tell us about your self, who is Taylor?
I'm Taylor Brione, nicknamed by everyone who loves me as The Black Barbie. I come from a large family, 5 younger sisters, 3 dogs, and 2 parents. I love the color pink and I'm a Barbie Collector. I'm a 20 year old junior at the University of Houston, where I study Event Management and minor in Non-Profit Management. I'm very involved on campus...this year i'm Vice Chair of the Homecoming Board! I have two as a Fundraiser for a Non-Profit and another as a Wedding and Event Planner. I'm definitely a kid a heart and I'm enjoying living as a bachelorette in the great city of Houston!

How would you describe your style?
Like a five year old girl: girly, playful, and bright!

How do you maintain your style while being a busy college student?
Dressing up makes me feel good and I feel like I perform better. People also take you seriously when you are dressed like you care. Even when I'm tired I still take the time to get ready and put effort into my outfits...a maxi dress and sandals versus pajama pants and a tank top, or a cute romper versus gym shorts, will go a long way in helping you to maintain your style. When in doubt, I always think what would Barbie wear? I've never seen her leave the dream house looking rough!

Do you have any style, fashion or shopping tips for fellow student stylistas?
·     Definitely shop on a budget. I know tons of girls at my school who spend entire paychecks on one outfit...its not worth it. Shop for trendy items on a budget and invest in items such as shoes or handbags that will last longer than the current fashion fad.
·     Don't overdue trends. I love to be on trend...but there is no reason to wear every single trend at one time. Nor is every trend for everybody. Take them and make the trends your own.

What are you looking forward to wearing this Fall?
I love dresses!! I wear them at least 4-5 days out of the week! I just recently did a post on belted dresses! I'm looking forward to wearing my dresses with tights or with knee high boots!
