Stripes & Bows

Can you believe it? There’s only one more day left until this year is officially over. Seriously, where did time go?

I thought I would do a little outfit of the day post of my work outfit today. I wanted to dress up a little so I figured I would go with a little sparkle!

A Fashion Must-Have.

ImageA blazer can pull together any look you are going for from casual to a night-out or to your office. I love the idea that I can wear jeans and throw on a blazer and it would make a simple outfit look prominent. It’s a good idea to have at least a solid black blazer hanging in your closet. Just like a little black dress, a black blazer can always be your go-to on any occasion. Today’s outfit of the day is from Charlotte Russe.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow..

As the snow is falling, I’m wrapped under a blanket with a nice cup of hot chocolate and it is definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas! As crazy as it sounds, winter is one of my favorite seasons. I love dressing up in layers and wearing scarfs and boots. Getting ready for the holiday parties is the best part! Here’s a dress I absolutely adore for the holidays!

This past week the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show finally aired! I can’t wait to upload my favorites from that night but Snow Angels was definitely my favorite segment. It left me speechless!

‘Tis the Season. Keep on sparkling! Xo

Business Fiery

I haven’t had time to shoot an outfit of the day this past week because everything has been so hectic! But I came across  pictures and found a bunch I never shared with you guys so I thought I can upload them.  As a little girl I always pictured myself dressing in business attire. I just loved the idea of sheath dresses, layers, blouses and heels for work. This shoot was a business look since I do have to dress this way to work. And yes, that’s my most favorite part about my job 🙂

But That’s Not How You Hold Your Teacup…

d

For my course PR 2, we all had to take part in a Business Workshop Etiquette not as students but as teachers. The purpose was for us to teach all the Management courses about the “how-to’s” of interviews, social media, resumes, and table manners. I was picked to cover: Writing Communications, Resumes, and Thank Yous.

There was a lot I learned out of this especially with table manners. In the traditional American style, the silverware is placed from the outside to the inside in the order your meals come. So for example, your soup spoon will be to the right of you and going inwards you will have your teaspoon and then your dinner knife. It depends on also what your entrées will be so if there was going to be seafood dish there would be a fish fork. There’s even a particular way to hold your teacup!

I would go into details about each segment in the Etiquette but that would take forever! So if you guys want to know something specific about how to write your resume or even how and when it is appropriate to send a thank you letter please feel free to comment below! Just a few snaps from today’s workshop with my partner, Rebecca. Don’t know what I would do without her! Btw, yes we are wearing aprons!
