Hello everyone, my name is Meagan Reid. I was born in India, but grew up in Oregon and now attend the University of Oregon. I am a senior majoring in advertising and I am thrilled to join CollegeFashionista for the spring semester.

I chose advertising as a major because I saw the many creative opportunities the industry had. I wanted to be a part of something that takes an interest in what makes people unique. I am always browsing the web, trying to keep up with the latest news and trends. I became interested in fashion when I saw bloggers using fashion as a creative outlet. In other words, I am inspired by the way I can express myself through my personal style and the style of those around me and beyond.

Not only does fashion make a statement, but it is something that each individual can change as they grow and learn throughout their lives. The idea that I can wake up each day and make a new statement through my style inspires me. Each day I have the opportunity to make a difference in the world through not only my style, but the message that it sends. There really are endless possibilities when it comes to fashion and I love to learn about what makes an outfit special to a person.

For this look, I paired a light-wash denim jacket with black denim pants for contrast. To stay warm, I threw on a plaid scarf and added a rose gold watch to accessorize. 

Through fashion, we communicate so much more than just our clothes. Self expression is something that I value and embrace as often as possible through different outlets. I hope to continue to be inspired by those around me and grow from the new perspectives.
