Winter Prepster

It's still winter, but unlike the last few months, it's feeling like a heatwave in Chicago right now. Granted, by heatwave I'm refering to the mere 32 degrees above zero, but I'll take what I can get.

Today's look is unusually preppy for my style, and yet quite fitting. You see, my favorite part of working in fashion is that I really do feel like I'm playing dress up each day. One day I can be a little more edgy and the next I can be a total prepster, and neither is wrong.

The funny thing is while you may think there is a lot of structure to my styling habbits, what I wear is primarily selected based on how I feel or want to feel each day. It's always a mystery and always a slight costume change, but most importanty it's always a lot of fun!

So there's my challenge for you– be intentional about having fun with your wardrobe and don't limit yourself. Fit & structure are key, but those translate across all styles, so don't be afraid to branch out of your ordinary and see if you fins a new look that gives you a new boost of confidence for the day ;)
