I have been in DC for about two weeks now and I’ve finally broken out of the watch-Netflix-in-my-room-all-day mode. I’m not much of a homebody, so that lifestyle got very old quickly.

The Intern’s Closet: How to Dress to Impress

New blog post: The Intern’s Closet. Wearing sleeveless tops, jeggings, and statement necklaces to work!

Screen Shot 2014-07-11 at 3.14.42 PM

I recently got an internship at an office in Washington, D.C. As I was packing and preparing myself for my life as intern, I took a look at my closet to see what I had that could work for an intern’s closet. My internship has a “business casual” dress code, so I knew I already had some items in my closet that could fit the bill. I didn’t want to buy and entirely knew wardrobe but I wanted…

Today was a simple trip, where we spent little to no money. It was nice to just walk around and soak in the city.

Brands With A Conscience: Warby Parker

Brands With A Conscience: Warby Parker

Ever since I started my nonprofit organization, Style Lottery, I have been thinking about the role of fashion/apparel brands play in philanthropy.

On a whim, I decided to join a group of classmates going to Puerto Rico on vacation. As I mentioned, this would be my first legit Spring Break vacation. This post will be a teaser of some of my photos from the trip. Between my friends and I, there should be over 1000 pictures! We were only there for 5 glorious days but we made some great memories. This was, hands down, my favorite Spring Break…

I’ve been friends with Vanessa since my freshman year in undergrad. When she…
