Style Advisor: Elle Olszewski

avatar School: Samford University Hey, my name is Elle Olszewski! I'm a sophomore political science major at Samford University. I go to school Birmingham, Alabama, but home is Nashville, Tennessee. My personal style is a crazy mix of earth tones and textures, paired with my signature hair bows. I guess I never grew out of the ribbon and bow days! I love decorating my space with DIY items, flea market finds, and antiques. I love college life, and these four years are going to be full of surprises, new adventures, and figuring out who I am. Follow me on Twitter (@scintelliement), Pinterest (Elle Olszewski) and Instagram (@elleskates). xoxo, Elle
