Hi loves! I know it has been quiiiiite a while since I have last updated my blog, but life has been pretty hectic on my end. Between Betsey Johnson filing bankruptcy, me looking for a new job, and moving out of my old condo into a new apartment (on my own!), I haven’t had much time to even see friends or get on a good sleep schedule! Today has been my first day off (sort of) in a long time, so I definitely wanted to start getting back into the groove of updating Panache.
On a few good notes, I did get a new job – I will be managing the bebe store at Tyson’s which I am very excited about! Of course, I’m not in Betseyland anymore, but I am looking forward to learning new things and growing in the fashion world. It’s only been a week with training and I can already comfortably say that I can see myself here for a while. Though, I still cannot believe Betsey stores will be completely gone in just a few weeks. Over at Tyson’s, our last day is next Saturday the 30th – such a strange feeling having our store so scarce of merchandise with giant ‘going out of business’ signs everywhere… *sigh*. As far as my new apartment, it is so strange being away from my sister considering we have lived together my entire 21 years of existence! But it is nice being able to make the place ‘my own’. Plus, I still have Snickers (my amazing kitty!) which makes it all the more better (:
Now back to business…!
I don’t know how the weather is where you are, but here in D.C. it has been ridiculously hot. Instead of opting for the typical summer outfit featuring your go-to pair of shorts and your favorite tank, discover the fresh new version of a melt-proof outfit. Make it your own, figure out what your signature style or piece of clothing/accessory is and own it! Audrey Hepburn was known for her flats; Diane Keaton for her fedoras and Jackie O for those faux pearls and round specs. This summer’s freshest outfits are luckily like blank canvases: versatile and begging for your personal style to dive into. Here are five easy styling tricks that don’t require any fashion degree or styling expertise to master.
1. Oxfords Smarts – Tone down the length and can-be stuffiness of your favorite new maxi dress by pairing it with a pair of polished oxfords. It’s the perfect day-to-evening look, too! Simply switch up your jewelry and makeup, and you have yourself a fool-proof summer look that works for multiple occasions.
