Citron + Cobalt and Being Myself




Going to a style conference in Austin is like inviting a interior decorator, chef, and party planner to your house for a dinner party. All eyes will be on what you are wearing at all times (#nopressure). It is not a bad thing, it is just a fact.  I thought a lot about what I was going to wear more than I would like to admit. I knew that some would rock the vintage style and some would rock the trendy. I can't rock either. One of the goals I set for myself during TxSC was to be myself, and I could find no better avenue than with my clothing choices. Sunday I threw together (and when I say "threw together" I mean perfectly planned out at least a week prior) this neon color blocked citron and cobalt as an outward expression of who I was. I have learned so much about myself since entering the working world, starting this blog and really dealing with real life. To me this outfit says...

I am classic. 
I am bright. 
I will keep you guessing. 
I will always throw a little spice in whatever I do.

COMING TO STEAL THAT SKIRT.
I've been on the hunt for a yellow pencil skirt.

You pretty much described this outfit perfectly, which describes YOU perfectly.

Love. Love. LOVE!

Oh and while I'm talking about stealing your clothes, I might as well steal that necklace, too...

Love how you describe yourself through your outfit. Glad you "threw" these pieces together. It's a great look.. although in our town people might think you were a little too much into our school colors!
