STYLE GURU BIO: Samantha Coley

Hey there, Fashionista/os!

It’s a new school year and that means an all new semester of CollegeFashionista! In case you’re new to this rad site, my name is Samantha Coley and I am now a senior at the University of Tennessee, which is still unbelievable to me. I’m still studying Journalism and have also added a Retail minor to learn more about the fashion industry.

My new goal this school year is to try and remain positive amongst all the craziness and to continue to wow UT’s campus with new styles and trends.

My style has definitely evolved over time, and I’m starting to take more risks with what I put on in the morning. Since I’m a lover of heels and just shoes, in general, I have found a new obsession that I just know I am going to live in around campus and at work. I just bought a pair of wedge sneakers and I die for them. They give me the height I crave, but they’re incredibly comfortable. Plus, they are much different from what I would usually wear. I don’t know what happened, but I did not think they were for me and then all of a sudden they were.

One thing that all readers need to know about me is one of my favorite necklaces that I literally never take off. My nameplate necklace is one of many jewelry pieces my parents gave me for Christmas and it never comes off of me. I’m a huge Sex and the City fan and I’d like to think I am most like Carrie, which is why I begged my parents to get me a necklace just like her Carrie necklace.

Another go-to outfit choice I always love to wear is graphic T-shirts. I didn’t wear them for a while and just started wearing them again this summer.  I love them because they are playful and can really express how I am feeling on a certain day. Plus, they are comfortable which is always my go-to when I have a long day of class and work ahead of me.

I am excited for another semester of CollegeFashionista and cannot wait to scour out more fashionable UT students to share with all of you!
