Summer is normally the time of year when I wear the most bright colors- I like to wear color year round but summer just begs for it! This year has been different for me though, and I've been experimenting with wearing a lot more black and neutrals recently. I don't mind them if I can put together outfits that have a girly feel to the neutral colors, and I think this outfit does exactly that! How darling is this swing skirt from Banana Republic? It's just long enough to pass the business casual dress code requirements, but short and light enough to be perfect for summer weather.
I don't have a traditional 9-5 job currently, but business casual attire is something that I have recently become a lot more acquainted with recently! The broadcasting school that I am attending for the next year requires all students to wear business casual clothes to all classes. I personally love the dress code, for one because I enjoy dressing up, and also because to me this gives broadcasting school a very different feel from college! I was very guilty this past year as a senior of showing up to some of my 8 classes half in my pajamas (insert monkey emoji with hands over eyes here...). The fact that my current educational program has a dress code helps me to feel professional and motivated. This outfit would be perfect to wear on a class day at broadcasting school!
I know I told y'all on Twitter that I was posting my bedroom reveal post today... I am postponing it to next Monday! It will most definitely be up then though, and I'm hoping it will be worth the wait! I had the most fun decorating my bedroom out of all the spots in my new apartment.
Also, in other blogging news, instead posting my usual Midweek Ramblings + Recent Purchases post this Wednesday, I'll be sharing my personal guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale then! A lot of bloggers have already shared their sale guides and favorite picks, but I know that many of my readers are not card holders and couldn't shop the sale Early Access, so I wanted to post my favorites closer to when the sale opened to the public. So stay tuned for that! In the meantime, I did add some of my NSale favorites to the top right of my blog, which you can look at and click through.
