Professional Pink

In a classic business setting most people stick to neutral colors. Normally a dark plain blazer and matching pants. Likewise, the undershirt is a grey, white, or light blue blouse. The neutral colors indicate a form of salaried workers. The bottoms, pants or skirts, are to be crisp and straight down.
Recently, I saw a few lighter colored blazers in an accessory shop. Due to my affinity for the color pink I found it adorable. My only struggle was how to make this blazer business casual.
My veterinary courses require a blue-color dress code on Fridays. So, I decided to test out my outfit for the day. I paired my double buttoned pink blaze,r from Versona, with a simple flair skirt, I got from H&M. I also have a lace pink top from Anthropologie.
I then accessorizes my outfit with pieces from Primark. I attached a velvet bow to the lace trim of my top. I added a pink floral hair pins to push my hair back. For shoes I kept the professional trend and wore black round toe heels. However, for after class I added my pair of feathered light pink glitter pumps.
The outfit was a stretch out of my normally work wear or business professional attire, yet it made me stand out from all the other uniform looks. Work wear can still be chic and cute. The professional pink look was a go that I would repeat again.
Down below, I attached an outfit set and links. Listed below is wear you can find similar items to my professional pink outfit.

Monochrome Spring

As spring and summer trends start to fly in it becomes essential to rember to classic chic look. Every spring and summer clothing store is going to be piled with bright colors and floral prints. Which are all lovely and viable options.
However, there are other ways to sport a spring look without charging up a storm for pastels.A monochromatic color scheme can still achieve the same spring or summery feel.
A lace blouse with trimmings is a fresh represntation of the vitality of life. Everyone who is in the workforce probably has this iteam too. Another wardorbe stable is a pair of pants. If you have pants or a skirt in a solid color with scalloped lining its a cute way to descritely incorporate a floral outlook. Likewise a patteren coat can bring in a splash of summer youth without the bright colors.
Overall you can still have a nice and soothing summer and spring outfit from your basic wardrobe needs. Staples in grey, black, creme, white, nude, and beige can still be worn during these seasons. The monochromatic colors are to be utilized every season and can provide chic looks.

Halloween Nail Art

Image result for cat nails for halloween
Being abroad I’ve recently discovered Halloween isn’t as big of a deal as Americans make it to be. Yet, I am a festive person that loves dressing up at all costs. So, my disappointment for people not celebrating the makeshift holiday was sky rocketed. I would not be supporting my annual cat look.
What I can do this year is add spooky chic beauty looks. A way to achieve that aim is to get a manicure.  When I go in I typically get a black or white background. The monochrome colors provide a clear backdrop for adding other textures or designs. Then I typically get cat or spider stickers on my nails once it drys.

In you are talent beautification attempting stripes can also be a unique idea. This is super cute if you plan on going as a witch and have striped stockings to accessorize.

I’ve also grown to like custom planners and have switched from Lily Pulitzer planners to professional journals. This switch was much needed as I take on doctoral school. Professors often frown upon brightly printed patterns so the burgundy and dusted pink journal was more accepted. Journals have been a better fit than planners because I can also take notes instead of writing on the margins of my dated boxes. I have found a few journals on Novica.

Along with my fall obsessions I have grown to adore River Islands fall line. There blouses are essential for professional days on Thursday for guest lectures in my veterinary courses. Similarly Selfridge’s has wonderful accessories that I’ve grown to adore. There leather gloves are wonderful for crisp mornings. Likewise Kendra Scott’s new line has modern simplistic jewelry that adds clean look.
