University of Portland is 1.3 miles from the shop and every time a student comes into the shop I can't believe how sweet and professional all the students are. With this photo series I am going to get to know some of the students better by asking them to model for a few looks once a month. Meet Carly, Malika and Chloe.

Hometown: Oakland, California
Major: Organizational Communication
Why did you choose UP to attend: Upon receiving a generous academic scholarship from UP, I decided it was worth checking out. I visited campus and attended a panel that was comprised of students talking about opportunities they have had since coming to The Bluff. I told myself that if I could become half as successful as these students, I would consider myself accomplished. I committed that day.
What is your favorite coffee shop in Portland: Cathedral coffee
What is your favorite outfit to throw on for class? A basic dress with black tights, boots, and a blazer. I am a firm believer in no sweat pants to class!
Name: Chloé Tanega
Wearing: Top by Free People $19.99, Leggings $12.99, Boots by Born size 8 $39, necklace by Hanawear $38
Hometown: Kennewick, WA
Why I chose UP: I love Portland. My hometown is only 3.5 hours away so we come to Portland frequently to shop. Not only that, but something about the school just felt like home. I love the fact that it's a private Catholic school so I am able to grow in my faith as i continue to grow as a person. The sense of community here can't be beat so you never feel like you're alone.
Favorite coffee shop: I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I do love chai tea! I have yet to discover my new favorite chai place.
Go to outfit: I love skirts! I have enough skirts to last me over a month. A skirt and a simple black tank top with a different cover up and accessories is super easy to throw on. And dresses are essential for when I'm feeling super lazy but still want to look chic!
