Rising senior spends the summer as a fashion blogger
Rising senior Ron Amiscarary didn't have to leave Chicago to find the perfect summer gig as a blogger. When he’s not writing about the latest fashion trends for CollegeFashionista, you can find him exploring the city.
Year/Major: Senior, Creative Writing
What are you up to this summer?
Along with working for Campus Safety as a front desk receptionist, I'm scouting campus for stylish and fashion-forward students for my blogging internship with CollegeFashionista (follow me on Instagram and Twitter @sowrongitsDanny for weekly updates!). I'm definitely going to enjoy Chicago and catch up on some good reads like Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy, Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl, and Haruki Murakami's Chronicle Bird.
What are you most excited about?
I am excited about the events going on in downtown Chicago, like the movies and music festivals in Millennium Park. Even though our Ventra cards aren’t unlimited, I'll heading downtown to find some fun and fashion!
What’s your favorite new summer trend?
Designer Jonathan Anderson stated a while back that fashion is “experiencing a moment of nostalgia.” I've noticed this myself and quite like it. We're seeing a lot of throwback clothing with a contemporary twist. It's hard to pick a favorite, but it's between puritan hats (hats with the wide brim) and retro sunglasses (cat eye, white frame, and flat top/square glasses).
How will your summer adventures add to your Loyola experience?
Being on Loyola's campus this summer allows me the time to explore the surrounding neighborhood. So, a lot of adventures I've been taking are random walks up and down streets I usually don't have time to explore during the school year. Ashland Ave., Morse Ave., and Pratt Blvd. have some great architecture. Seeing many of the different scenes around Rogers Park adds so much more to my Loyola experience.
And finally (and completely off topic)...What is your Chipotle order?
I must say I love this question! I usually get a sofritas burrito bowl with the tortilla on the bottom, no beans, fajita vegetables, mild salsa, sour cream, corn, lettuce, and of course guacamole! Can't go without a good dollop of guacamole.
