I’m headed to Vegas this weekend with the sistahs (mom and two new sisters, read more on that here) and I’m so excited!
I love traveling, but I’m the worst at packing. I usually just throw a bunch of clothes in a bag, with ideas of outfits in my head, but I never really plan it out. So, in an effort to save space (to of course make room for NEW clothes) and be less stressed deciding what to wear, I’m planning out my outfits for the weekend. What’s funny is for someone who’s such a planner, this actually kind of stresses me out – realizing I can’t change my mind at the last minute about what to wear!

Come back next week to see our Weekend Picturebook from Vegas. Hope you have a wonderful weekend wherever you are!
I find it can at times be difficult for a young professional to look young and professional at once. My biggest fear when I first joined the corporate world (this is very telling of me) was that I would turn into a dowdy, average dresser. I want to keep my personality in my clothes while still looking appropriate. Another challenge is often quickly changing from a work day to an evening play date a la happy hour or dinner with the girls.
So below are some tips for how to stay fresh, cute and professional from day to play.
[for play = take hair down + red lip]
[for play = change pants for dark skinny jeans + fun heels]
[for day = + black skinny pants, flats]
[for play = + chunky necklace, switch bag for clutch]
[for play = change into colored/patterned top + leather jacket]
[for day = + shrunken blazer]
