It seems like everyone is talking about how important it is for bloggers to find their niche. At first, I found this to be super frustrating. I love fashion, I love beauty, and I love lifestyle. But then I realized that my blog does have a niche, and I want to continue to hone in on that. My goal for this blog is to help y'all prepare for and navigate the post-grad world.
For example, I got invited to a really awesome work event. It was a baseball game, and it was going to be a scorcher. From the moment I received the invitation, I was fretting about what to wear. I didn't find it appropriate to wear shorts given the fact that it was technically a work event, but I didn't want to melt. So I went with what has become my summer Casual Friday uniform - a fun top that's work appropriate but also appropriate for drinks after work when I ditch the blazer, white jeans, sandals, and gold jewelry. I straightened my hair for simplicity, because I knew the humidity would make my curls flat in no time.

I ended up having the best time at the baseball game! I made some great professional contacts, enjoyed delicious food, and even ran into my cousins. Definitely a great Sunday Funday in my book!
