Style Guru Bio: Mara Berg

When I was five and jelly sandals were all the rage, my kindergarten teacher called me a fashionista. Fourteen years later as a sophomore at Boston University majoring in Journalism and minoring in International Relations, not much has changed. Yes, leggings from Gap Kids have been replaced with jeggings by Joes Jeans, but my passion for expressing myself through clothing remains. Although my style is decidedly urban and bold, my southern California upbringing heavily influences the contents of my closet. As much as I love edgy leather jackets, I hold lightweight floral fabrics just as close to my heart. You will often catch me channeling Blair Waldorf while donning a headband, but I have not shed all of my West coast roots – a $10 peace sign ring that I found at a flea market never leaves my right index finger. At BU I am not an anomaly – every day I see stylish students from all over the globe strutting down Commonwealth Avenue, mixing their own backgrounds with newfound East Coast flair. I’m just the lucky girl who gets to write about them.
