Trying to not freak out that this is my first blog post, but I am so ready to talk outfits and anything fashion related.  Little intro about me:  I'm 23 years old, coffee obsessed, obviously infatuated with all things fashion, and have a serious love for dogs.  

I graduated from the University of Tampa with a degree in Advertising and Public Relations with a dream to make it in the fashion industry.  Although I am currently a social media manager for a restaurant group, I do social media consulting on the side and know one day that fashion will evidently be my focus of my career at some point...(maybe through this blog!) 

Currently in Tampa, the weather is humid 100% of the time (and mostly throughout the year) but it is extra hot in the summer which makes choosing an outfit a little more difficult--hello sweat stains.  For a lunch outing at GrillSmith with my awesome photographer, I decided to wear this gorgeous olive green maxi  from Shop Lady Duke.  The material is light and doesn't weigh you down, especially in the heat.  

I styled this dress with a lariat that I cannot remember where it is from, but you can get a similar one from Vrai & Oro  or for a similar style but on the lower price end try this one from Shop Bop. For shoes, I feel this is the part that either dresses it up or down so it is really your choice.  My occasion was a bit casual so I went with my go to Steve Madden sandals that I've been living in this Summer.  If you wanted a more dressy look, don't be afraid to throw your favorite pair of wedges or heels on!

Please leave questions, comments, or suggestions! I would love to read them and learn what my readers want to know more about.
