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.
