Publish date:

I spotted Mallory in Mizzou’s infamous Speaker’s Circle, the only area on campus where speakers need not get permits. Mallory was headed to volunteer at Coyote Hill, a foster home for at-risk children. Her style mirrors her personality perfectly; easy-going and quirky.

How would you describe your sense of style? “I don’t have one! I don’t really match... ever.”

Why did you choose this particular outfit? "I hate to wear leggings in humid weather, so jeans seemed like the right idea."

What do you do for fun? "I’m a Young Life leader at Battle High School. It’s a ministry that aims to reach un-churched and disinterested kids; the ones that no one is specifically trying to find. I also like to hammock and craft."

If you could raid anyone’s closet, who would it be and why? "Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper on HGTV; I like her style. She gets her clothes from fair trade or they go back to a bigger cause."

Elements of Mallory’s Outfit

1. Meaningful Bracelets

Mallory's colorful bands are from Young Life camp. Started in 1941, Young Life is a non-denominational Christian ministry that has become a large part of her life.

She is also wearing a Lokai bracelet, which Mallory and her friends all received for their high school graduation. These bracelets contain water from Mount Everest and mud from the Dead Sea to encourage a balanced life.

2. Headband & Chaco Sandals

Mallory’s headband adds a pop of color and shows off her style trademark of mismatched elements, as they contrast with her patterned sandals. These Chacos are a versatile option for the constantly shifting spring weather. It doesn't hurt that they're ultra-comfy, too!

3. Monogrammed Necklace

Bar necklaces are currently a popular trend and Mallory’s “M” adds a personalized touch to her look. It is dainty, simple, and can be worn with anything.

4. Missouri T-Shirt
