Superb Seven: College Interview Ready

IMG_6243

Hello, my fabulouses! Have you every wondered what to wear to a college interview? Then this Superb Seven outfit is perfect for you! When putting together an outfit for a college interview, it is important to look professional and poised, yet youthful and trendy. Here are five easy steps to help you achieve that look.

  1. Start with a classic black pencil skirt.
  2. Find a patterned or brightly hued blazer.
  3. Toss on a graphic t-shirt that is mature (yes, that means no cats), but with a pinch of youthfulness (sparkle, bright color, and so forth).
  4. Look for a colorful and comfortable pair of kitten heel pumps that will coordinate with the blazer.
  5. Keep your jewelry as minimal as possible. This is NOT the time for wild arm candy.

30 Day J.Crew Challenge: Weekly Whistle Taking Care of Business

IMG_3160

Hello, my fabulouses! This spectacular J.Crew outfit is perfect for taking care of business! Speaking of taking care of business….I think I am going to sing a little tune…I honestly cannot resist.

“You get up every morning from your ‘larm clock’s warning. Take the 8:15 into the city. There’s a whistle up above, and people pushin’, people shovin’, and the girls who try to look pretty….Taking care of business (every day). Taking care of business (every way). I’ve been taking care of business (it’s all mine). Taking care of business and working overtime…” (Taking Care of Business by B.T.O.)

This photo shoot was a bit of an adventure! Climbing up on that slick, rocky ledge and standing in the chilly, running water were not the easiest things to do in heels. Hey, a fashionista has to do, what a fashionista has to do for the perfect photo :)

NEW ITEM ALERT: BURGUNDY AND PINK COLOR BLOCK TEE.

It wouldn’t be a good photo shoot, if there were not some silly test shots somewhere…here…in the wilderness…
