My Top 10 Interview Pieces

Interviewing is a tough enough experience already without having to worry about your outfit. I have always worn a more classic silhouette with some modern touches as I work in a more conservative industry.

Obviously if you work in a less conservative industry you can mix it up a bit more, but I still believe when interviewing it’s best to stick to classics like a black blazer or sheath dress. Also, take note of your accessories and makeup. A bold lip or a chunky necklace is great on the weekend or for a night out, but not always the wisest choice when interviewing.

Again, you can always vary your look depending on the industry you are interviewing for, so know that there are no concrete pieces you “must” have. And of course just remember to wear something that you feel comfortable in as an interviewer will notice your comfort level right off the bat.

*For those who are still currently attending a university, stores such as Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor LOFT, and J Crew offer student discounts if you show them your Student ID. When I was a student I’d ask any store if they offered a student discount, as they really do help on pieces with a higher price tag.

A modern take on dressing for Easter

A modern take on dressing for Easter

We all know the drill, Easter is here so time to put on some pastels and florals. After a while, though, that routine becomes just that–a routine.

I love the idea of modernizing an Easter outfit with pairing traditional pieces with quirky pieces that give the outfit some flair and edge.

A floral dress may seem stereotypical. Add a chunky navy necklace and gray heels and you’ll make that floral dress feel even fresher and younger. A black and white dress may seem inappropriate for some on Easter, but paired with a feminine blush necklace and ladylike ankle wrap heels you can wear it to brunch and church with the family. Blush dresses are amazing as they act as a neutral and can be paired with anything, but I’d pair it with the geometric white dress, the gray heels, and round sunglasses to make the look more modern than feminine.

Have a great Easter, y’all!

The great thing for college students is that a decent amount of stores give student discounts.

Also, here’s some great “Girl Code” advice that we all need to remember. How we dress is a reflection of ourselves, so why let other people dictate how we look? Love this show!
