Yesterday I had a plan: I would wear my new turquoise Converse kicks with cropped jeans and a favorite Free People oversized shirt — it’s a sort of pink-y blue corduroy, with a soft flounciness that I love. Hadn’t worn it in awhile. And I’ve shared my thoughts about weight gain right? (No, haven’t lost it yet.) So I put on my sneaks and jeans (not in that order) and a soft T-shirt and then I went to put on the Free People shirt and… I. Couldn’t. Get. It. On.
I was so excited when Jennifer asked me to do a blog post for her with five fashion tips for Spring. I met Jennifer in January, and I have LOVED seeing her style transform from jeans and a t-shirt to a polished boho chic mom.
Before I launch into my five fashion tips, Jennifer asked me to write a short bio about myself. A lot of people ask me how I became a Personal Stylist, and everyone assumes that I must have studied fashion or had some glamorous job that landed me to my current position. But the truth is that I stumbled into this job. After graduating with my degree in Spanish Linguistics and Spanish Literature from CU, I quickly found out that the jobs I was qualified for sounded monotonous and boring, and I wanted more. I have always believed that if I have to devote 40 hours of my life every week to something, I HAVE to be happy doing it.
