STYLE GURU BIO: Hailey Murray

Hi everyone! I am currently a freshman at University of Iowa majoring in pre-business hoping to pursue a career in fashion buying.  I am a lover of animals, food and anything black.  I am originally from South Dakota so being six hours from home is a new change for me.  I have learned to get out of my comfort zone a little more, which has also been shown in my style. Iowa City is a lot like my hometown, Sioux Falls. It has a beautiful downtown area with a lot of art. In just my first semester, I have made life lasting friendships. Iowa has truly become home away from home for me.

My style changes constantly. My mood definitely influences the way I dress; one day I am grungy, the next I am boho or preppy. Because of this, I am a lover of classic layering pieces. I love being able to take a simple black dress and adapt it to whatever style I am feeling that day. Staples in my closet for this season include black Chelsea boots, distressed jeans and big sweaters. Not only am I into fashion, but I love keeping up with the ever changing beauty trends. Adding a smoky eye or a bold lip can really tie an outfit together.

Overall, I am inspired by the idea of putting simple pieces together to create an amazing product. I am so excited to start an internship that I can express my love for fashion!
