STYLE GURU BIO: Morgan Partney

Hello Fashionistas/os!

I am so excited to be writing for CollegeFashionista this summer as a Style Guru! I am anxious to learn, write and explore more of the fashion world with you all!

As a junior at the University of Missouri, I am working hard towards my Journalism degree, with an emphasis in Strategic Communications. My first two years of college helped guide me into finding my true passions, and ultimately changed the direction of where I wanted to go in life. Getting the opportunity to be a campus representative for some of my favorite brands led me into realizing just how much I love marketing and advertising. So that’s where I am now, and I could not be more excited for the future!

Ever since I realized what my true passions were, I focused heavily on fashion. Being the soft-spoken introvert that I am, expressing myself with what I wear has become an obsession. I can describe my personality without having to say anything at all. Fashion has helped me to grow as a person, and being able to write and give advice about it is a dream come true. When I was younger, I hated shopping, putting together outfits and did not care about how my mom dressed me. Now I can spend hours searching for the perfect outfit that will be able to express who I am. Lately, I have been all about neutrals. Even in the summertime, a black top with high waisted shorts is my go-to look. This crop top pairs perfectly with distressed shorts, and this season I’m obsessing over lace sandals and layered necklaces. When the sun goes down and it gets a bit chillier, a flannel is the perfect light jacket to throw on.

Other than my love for fashion, I love to get lost in music, read inspiring novels and sweat out all of life’s stresses with a good workout. You can find me at the nearest Starbucks drinking a white mocha, local movie theatre watching the latest comedy or, of course, Target. I love keeping up on social media, so be sure to follow me and check out my upcoming CollegeFashionista articles. Let summer 2016 begin!
