Hey everyone! I’m Christian, a college journalist, lifestyle blogger, and aspiring novelist.

Growing up as an only child here in sunny Florida, writing became an outlet for my wild imagination and it didn’t take long before it became a huge part of my life. For a long time I believed fiction writing was the only way for me to express myself and that technically still rings true as I am getting a degree in Creative Writing.

Though once I discovered how much I loved documenting my thoughts and opinions on life and the events going on around me, I realized journalism was a good fit for me too. I instantly declared my minor as Magazine Journalism–while also adding Mass Communications cause who doesn’t love a little PR–and started writing for the UCF chapter of Her Campus during the fall of 2016. However, despite being a wonderful place to share my thoughts, it felt like it wasn’t a big enough platform to say them all.

Hence the creation of “Monochrome and Classy”.

Fashion has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, so making my blog about fashion was a must. From shopping advice to inspirational fashionistas, I cover anything and everything.

Take some time to explore my monochrome haven as you’ll never know what you may find!

Always Classy,

Christian Tippins
