What the @#$! is Business Casual?

What the @#$! is Business Casual?

OOTD, Style, Styling tips
Hi, guys! When I was first offered my summer internship, I was told the dress is "business casual" in the office. It sounded alright, but when it came down to packing, I was drawing a blank. Are jeans OK? What about sleeveless tops? How long do my skirts have to be? Unfortunately, the answers depend on the company. But now that I've finished my internship, I can confidently say I've gotten the hang of it (at least, no one's told me I've been wrong). The most difficult part is figuring out how much you can express yourself and wear what you like to wear, while still looking appropriate. Here are some tips for sneaking in some of your favorite items from your closet into your professional outfits. Statement Jewelry I love…

Hi guys! You may have noticed my posts and videos slowing down a bit this past month, and that's due to my feeling ill for probably about half the month overall. But I've spent that time in bed planning out my posts for the rest of my time here in Virginia (only two weeks!?!), so hopefully I'll be back at it in full force this month! A lot of my favorites are combinations of things, so this looks like a lot of products, but once you group them up it's not too bad.   Garnier BB Cream Combo   I love the Garnier BB creams, and lately I've been loving the two different types (original and oily/combination) mixed together. I wrote a post about these last fall, so check that…

Hi all, I just got a few petite items from Target's website, because I'm 5'3" and the clothes in the actual store are often taller than I am.   Here are photos of what I got: Check out my video to hear about what I got and for links to the items (as long as they're still in stock): [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeJxj-ko4Vc&w=560&h=315] Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone, I just got back from my trip to SoCal. I had a wonderful weekend spending time with my boyfriend and relaxing in the beautiful sunny weather! https://flic.kr/p/qbdXUt And of course, we did some shopping... https://flic.kr/p/pvUFEx The first photo is what I got from Little Tokyo. Of course my stuff was cat-related! You can see that I also got some cat rings at Forever 21. I was also really into the punctuation rings because I'm such a writer nerd. H&M was having a huge sale, so I picked up a couple of things (luggage space was severely limited, so I had to be careful). The high-waisted teal pants might be my favorite, and they were only $7. The top and dress were also on sale, but the jacket wasn't. I…

Packing Tips & What I’m Packing

Packing Tips & What I’m Packing

Hi, everyone! I'm heading down to Burbank next week to visit my boyfriend, who's been working down there for the summer. I'm super excited to spend some time with him and enjoy the hot weather! I fly across the country often for school, so I've gotten pretty good at packing a lot of stuff into little spaces. However, when I go home I typically bring way too much with the intention of leaving some behind, so on short trips like this I have a terrible habit of bringing too much under the excuse of "having options." Over time, I've started pushing myself to pack lighter, and now I have a few tips that I hope can help some of you out! Packing tips: Know what you'll be doing during your…
