Secretary

Blouse: Ann Taylor LOFT, secondhand, $16 // Skirt: Vintage, thrifted, $3 // Shoes: Urban Outfitters, gift

Sorry for the lull. It's been a crazy week! This is what I wore to speak on a career panel at my alma mater. Though I don't have to dress like this for work, I thought I'd go for a professional look.



My turban headband tutorial is coming soon! Happy Saturday!

I love this work look! And your bangs are making me want to go back to blunt bangs. I had bangs from kindgergarten until sophomore year of collge. No joke. Now, I'm in grad school and dying to get bangs again! But it took so long to grow them out
:(
