Instagram Roundup + 3 Quick Tips for Getting Dressed

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week so far! Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of pictures from my Instagram feed. As much as I love sharing beautifully styled, professional photos here on the blog, I love sharing my real life, daily outfits so much more! My daily looks are a mixture of what I've styled before for brands that I've worked with and what I purchased myself. My selfie style photos from Instagram are really the most accurate representation of my style. I am all about comfortable and casual but I also want to look put together. 

Here's the three quick steps for how to I put an everyday (Monday through Friday) outfit together:

1. Choose bottoms first. (I typically save dresses and skirts for the weekend because they aren't always the best choice for my job). Get rid of pants, jeans, skirts, or shorts in your closet that don't fit right and this first step will be a lot faster. I used to hang onto the pants that were either too big or too small or just generally uncomfortable. Toss them in the giveaway pile! Only hang onto what makes you feel good.

2. Pick a top. I am a big fan of dressed up t-shirts. Tees that have a special detail that take it up a notch and make it look a lot fancier without sacrificing style. My personal style is pretty casual because of my career but you can also make "t-shirts" work for a more professional setting by adding a cardigan to your outfit. Also, stock up on basics in your closet. A good fitting black top is a necessity and it's always my go-to when I don't know what to wear.

3. Accessorize your look. Choose a pair of shoes that compliment (not necessary match) your outfit and shoes. I personally keep my jewelry pretty simple. If I wear statement earrings or a statement necklace then the rest of my jewels are always pretty understated. I also do the same when adding a pop of color with a bag or shoes. I love pairing a neutral outfit with a statement necklace or colorful shoes.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
