Style Diary x Samara Marshall!

Scroll through the style diary of college student + fashion blogger, Samara Marshall:

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
Okay, three trends that I am currently loving is velvet, florals and my favorite has to be denim on denim. Velvet really caught my attention last year as I saw theses pieces everywhere from Macy’s, Old Navy and even Ross. What I really like about this trend is that when I look for clothing I typically look at the print and that print usually is the focal point of my outfit so having the focal be a texture had been different yet fun. Next would have to be florals. I don’t know what it is but I just love floral print probably because it seems to bring a bright and cheery look to my outfit. Last but not least is denim on denim. I swear everytime I wear denim on denim I feel like I am in the streets of New York because that’s wear I first saw this type of style. It’s just so chic and daring and it has become one of my go to looks.

If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
Oh gosh, that’s hard! One would have to be my denim jacket from Forever 21. What I like about it is well, it’s denim so I can pair it with anything and second it has photos sewn on to the back so it adds a unique touch! Second, would have to be my black booties from Charlotte Russe. I have had theses booties for almost four years now and they have really made a more simple outfit of mines evolve into something more. Lastly, I have to say is just plain black jeans. I know that sounds rather boring but black jeans are my favorite because I can pair anything with them.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
When I look for style inspiration I just look on Pintrest at random peoples posts. I guess you can say any and everybody is my style inspiration because we all have different and unique styles. Sometimes I might see a particular piece of clothing that someone is wearing and I might say “Hmm, let me try that”. Now, if I was going to a really big event I might have to take a few notes from Zendaya. Her style is everything and she truly stands out when she is on the red carpet. I literally have a whole board on Pintrest board dedicated to her looks because in all seriousness she just had to have her own board because she just stands out!

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to look if you’re in a rush?
I am litterally in a time crunch everyday going to class so I usually result to a pair of jeans, a top and a cardigan or jacket. This morning actually I got up rather late and had a few minutes to get out the door so I ended up getting a dark pair of jeans, a white turtleneck top and a maroon cardigan. Typically, this is my usually look and the cardigan or jacket is added to help better complete the outfit. As for shoes I just go with boots because it’s still cold where I am.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
Wear whatever you want and don’t be afraid to venture out and try new things! My style cannot be summed up in one word, I like to venture out and wear different pieces. If I want to wear something with a boho feel I will wear it or if I buy something that is more girly then you best believe I will rock it. I know that kind of sounds like my outfit choices are all over the place but it’s fun to experiment. I fell in love with fashion because it is fun and that’s what I really want others to kind of see that fashion is not boring but can really bring joy or bring you confidence.
