Style Advisor: Lauren Wynant

avatar School: Thomas S. Wootton High School Hi! My name is Lauren and I'm a freshman at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. The transition from high school to college is still very new to me, but I would be lying if I said I was not excited to be moving on to the next chapter of my life (especially to Dormify my dorm room)! My life in a nutshell - I am from Gaithersburg, Maryland and I have two sisters (three if you count Beyoncé). I am a firm believer in Manicure Mondays, Twitter, and Boy Meets World, and I have a passion for f'real milkshakes and anything dipped in Nutella. I love spending my summers down the shore in Avalon, New Jersey. My convenience store of choice is Wawa by a landslide (think it doesn't matter? You're wrong!). And, I bleed New York Giants blue. After having a fabulous experience with my internship during my senior year of high school, I discovered that I want to become a speech language pathologist, and I look forward to studying it. In my free time I love to make jewelry, Zumba and hang out with my friends (aka eat with my friends). I have always loved fashion and design, and my personal style tends to be pretty basic and classic. Follow me on twitter @_the_lo_down_ to hear about my new-found #collegegirlproblems and for a laugh or two, as I try to figure everything out :)
