Balance (+ A Giveaway!)

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.

Top:  J.Crew Factory [similar, similar]  •  Jeans:  local boutique that went out of business [identical]  •  Necklace:  Rose Water Designs (c/o)  •  Earrings:  Kendra Scott  •  Sunglasses:  Zac Posen [similar]  •  Sandals:  Jack Rogers


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!
