How to Look Professional

 Dress & Vest: Target // Boots: Asos // Tote: Zara // Pearl rings: Asos // Gold infinity ring: Gorjana // Silver nail polish: OPI 

I was SO honored to be asked to speak at my high school's career fair last month and before even thinking about my presentation, the first thing that came to mind was "What am I going to wear!?". I knew I wanted to look stylish, with a little hint of professional...because I didn't want to wear my jeans and Converse like I normally do these days. ;-) I also was one of the only speakers in a more creative industry so I knew I wanted to have a little flair and show these young women that you can still have a professional job, but have fun with your style at the same time, and that's exactly what I accomplished with this look.

This dress I picked up as I was cruising through Target for new mascara,  and I naturally stopped by the clothing area (get's me everytime!) which I normally wouldn't go for, but I thought for this occasion it would be great. Fun print, chic, comfortable and can be worn many different ways in the future. Paired with tights, chunky boots and a tuxedo vest -- I was ready to take on the stage!

I had the best time sharing my career path and experience with these bright, young adults and feel so accomplished and rewarded to have had this opportunity.

Galentine's Day Nails with Julep

From top clockwise: Me // Emily // Adiel // Kate

Valentine's Day is fun and all, but Galentine's Day is where it's at! When my dear friend Adiel opened her monthly Julep Maven box, it was full of extra polishes to handout to her gfs-- how cute is that?! (check out her photo on IG here) The ADOREable Hartleigh polish is full of pretty hearts, speckled white glitter and was perfect to team up for a fun nail collab with my Posh ladies!

For my mani I went with a gold and lavender base topped with the Hartleigh to add some contrast, I also added a little "XO" as an accent. I just love how everyone used the polish differently!

Be sure to check out their full nail looks on their blogs and have a very Happy Valentine's (or Galentine's Day weekend!)

Boho Vibes

 Dress: TJMaxx // Vest: Forever 21 // Bag: Zara // Hat: Target // Boots: Asos // Lipstick: Nars

While I must admit, boho isn't my go-to style, I absolutely LOVE this look. Floucy dress, faux fur vest, wool hat? Yes, on so many levels. I felt so Rachel Zoe and might need to rock this style more in the future.

That's one thing I love about fashion, one day you can look like a boho babe and the next a preppy schoolgirl (yes that's totally a hint to another post coming soon). Have fun with your style, it's all up to you!
