Bettering Yourself + Business Casual

TOP: old F21, similar here and here | PANTS: Old Navy pixie’s, love them! | SHOES: from DSW, similar here and here | BAG: Marshall’s, love this and this | EARRINGS: Baublebar | WATCH: Kate Spade | NECKLACE: Bluetique, discount code mentioned in post!

I wanted to share a business casual outfit and I felt that it went hand and hand with this post! I have had to dress up for quite a few things already! My Special Events Officer Interview, my upcoming Professional Retail Leaders Interview and my upcoming networking trip! I wanted to share this look because I know I’m not the only one having to dress up a bit. So here’s some inspiration and a life update as well!

So I have a lot to update and share. I started this year out feeling really alone. I’m living in a single and boyfriend doesn’t come back until next semester and on top of this I don’t see a lot of my friends during the week because we’re all SO BUSY. So I have decided to channel more of this alone time into something. This is the year of ME.

I am currently involved in A LOT all while taking 18 credit hours {lol not anymore since I was failing my online stats class!}. More often then not, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed but I don’t want to give anything up.

I just feel a fire in my soul, as corny as that sounds, to be great and successful. I just feel it. While I love my friends, I’m using this alone time that I seem to have a lot more of and using it to better myself. Two of my friends and I actually had this convo about how we’re worrying about ourselves and our success more this year!

Now I want to discuss the crazy amount of stuff I’m involved in:

Obviously my blog, I’m ride or die for Cincinnati Sass and really want to focus on growing my platform and brand.

Bluetique Brand Ambassador: you guys have seen me link to Bluetique items before in my outfit posts. I’m happy to say that after being obsessed with the store here in Athens, that I have become a Bluetique Brand Ambassador. I will be posting on both my personal and blog social media about Bluetique. I also have a code ‘Alexis15’ which saves you money at checkout!

Fashion Associates: I am currently on the executive board for my fashion club, Fashion Associates. I love the lovely ladies I call friends that are in this org and all that we do. We do networking trips, philanthropy, socials and a fashion show! This year we’re going to Columbus and visiting a few home offices of some big brands!!

The Black Student Cultural Programming Board: I love his org so much!! It’s a great way to meet other black people on campus {OU is a predominantly white institution, so it’s nice to see some diversity!} It’s also a great way to network and meet faculty because it is a tier 1 org.

I’ve also just been extended an offer as a Special Events Officer. I’m so excited for this position as well! I’ll be working along the Special Events co-directors.

On top of this all, I have a campus job 🙂 it’s okay I guess, I genuinely like the people I’ve met through the job. We all feel the same way about that place! I am also interviewing for yet another student org, Professional Retail Leaders, later this afternoon!

It’s a lot, but like I said I don’t want to give anything up, so wish me luck! I hope you all are working on your path to success. Make this the year of you!
