Hooray Grads!

Graduations always leave a warm, fuzzy feeling in my heart! It has been exactly four years since I graduated with my degree in Fashion Marketing and I remember every moment from that special day - what I wore, how I did my hair and make up, the moment they called out my name...everything! It was the end of my journey as a student and the beginning of my life in the world of fashion. 

This year, I got to partake in graduation celebrations as a guest and I wore the same dress over and over (hello, outfit repeater)! This cobalt blue Express slip dress was my go-to piece because of the effortless style and how it made me feel confident. It simply hung from my body and was subtly sexy without being over the top. I especially love the color-block detail and the risk-ay slit which accentuated my legs giving a long lean appearance as I walked. I kept the overall look simple and clean with black Express accessories (shoesbag) and white mod sunnies. Did I mention the dress is now on sale?! 

Having effortless style is a trait I greatly admire and it comes from having confidence from within. Check out some of my favorite Express styles below!
