This weekend has been so overwhelmingly amazing that I have not had time to sit down and put it all into words until now, on the drive home. There’s no way I could fit all of the awesomeness into one blog, so check back over the next two days to get the full story.
On Thursday I went to class in the morning, met up with my family and drove straight to Chicago just in time to attend the party/networking event at Luxury Garage Sale which was definitely the most luxurious consignment boutique I’ve ever been in! My mom and I spent a while walking around, feeling all of the beautiful clothes and dreaming about being able to afford all of the Chanel and Prada, and then the School of Style owners put together a style-off. Three people were randomly picked and they had 30 minutes to put together an outfit. The first person that was chosen backed out and I had to hold back from saying “I volunteer as tribute!!” Unfortunately I was not chosen, so I just styled outfits in my head!
Since I had to dress for class, a six hour car trip and this party I decided to wear comfortable layers that could be easily dressed up. LOFT Boyfriend Jeans (loving this wash right now) and a simple Target tee were the beginning layers for what was first a grandpa sweater and flats, and then turned into blazer and heeled booties. I would have loved to play around with different night time looks and things that wouldn’t normally work well in Lexington, but comfort had to take highest importance in this situation. This is where confidence came in, no matter what you wear, wear it with confidence and you will look like you belong.
