City Style | Roomie Edition

As you may or may not know, I am currently going to school in the city of Chicago.  It has only been 2 weeks, but I already love it so much.  There has yet to be a point where I am regretting choosing Columbia as the college for me.  Not only are my classes geared towards my major (Fashion Journalism), but there's never a day where I am bored of living in the city -- there is always something to do. 

But going to an art school means that you meet others who share similar as well as different interests as you.  My favorite thing so far about the people who I've met is all of the collaboration possibilities.  For example, my roommates.  This post today is a compilation of photographs taken by my roommate -- a Fashion Photography major -- Taylor.  In the photos with me, is my other roommate -- a Public Relations major and Fashion Business minor, Julia.  

I hope you all enjoy this post and the pictures in it!  If you do, make sure to share the love with Taylor on her website: Taylor Alise Photo
