If you follow me on Twitter or keep up with Levo League, than you must know who Kathryn is! Kathryn works at Levo with me and just so happens to sit across from me at work. She's hilarious and has the absolute best style. Honestly, every morning that she walks into the office, we all take note of what she's wearing. And by "take note," I mean it. It's not uncommon for someone to wear the exact same thing as Kathryn the next day. Yep. Guilty.
While watching an Office Hours, Kathryn was inspired to create her own "sidle hustle." Kathryn has recently launched her own website (and blog!). I volunteered my closet as a guinea pig for her new project.
It was amazing.
Kathryn and I spent all afternoon going through my closet (oh my was that a task) and then caught up on the stoop of my apartment to debrief.
Some of the outfits that Kathryn put together for me. (A lot of my clothes are older so I tried to find similar options in case you want to replicate!)
One of the pieces that we kept going to over and over again was this linen blazer from Theory that I've had for years. It's funny because I rarely wear it, but Kathryn totally made it work with so many different looks.
I was pulling images for a mood board this weekend and I started seeing a trend in what I was pulling. Pink. And tortoiseshell. I have simply fallen in love with the combination. Honestly. It's kind of perfect. I like the classic look of the tortoiseshell and the modern (huge pop of color) with the pink.
I'm definitely going to start incorporating this combination just about everywhere. Perfect way to accessorize simple outfits.
I think I've found my official spring uniform... Shirt dresses. Easy. Simple. And put together with about zero effort. Count me in.
I found this one at Uniqlo months ago and put it the back of my closet for warmer weather. I finally was able to take the dress for a spin and I think it's safe to say that it's perfect. (And at $40, it's a pretty good investment if you ask me!)
I have a feeling my dry cleaner will be seeing this dress weekly. Sorry about that.
I cannot believe how fast this past year has gone. I graduated almost a year ago and I'm more than a little dumbfounded. Seriously, where did time go? I'm going to do a longer reflection closer to the one-year mark of my actual graduation, but I knew I had to put together a quick gift guide for graduates.
I used to do really fun and quirky little gifts for these guides, but having actually graduated and lived in this so-called-Real-World for a bit, I've decided that practical gifts are definitely the better way to go.
I pulled together some varying price-points, but did keep things a little bit higher end. Of course, these are just ideas and suggestions of things to keep in mind. Honestly, all of these things are gifts that would have come in handy this year!
I have the regular iPad and thought the mini was ridiculous. However, there are so many times when I wish I had a smaller one. Oh, Apple. You know how to make people want extra gadgets. The mini is perfect for professionals who commute to work and want a light devise to use to read on and bring up presentations for client meetings.
