Now it's my turn in the hot seat. Discovering my style over the last few years has been quite a journey. I've tried to copy other people, dress the way that I think people expect me to dress, and even pretend to like certain clothes that I really don't like just because they were trendy. What I've come to realize is that I simply cannot keep up with the trends, and it's exhausting to dress for other people. This has led me on a journey to figure out who I really am, and what I am naturally drawn to.
Hence I've labeled myself a classy-boho. All-American prep is deep down in my core. I love blazers, chinos, collared button-ups. BUT also I have this inner hippie child that I cannot seem to shake. Lace, frills, and flowy skirts and tops make me feel like a woman. Today's outfit seems to be just that to me: classy-boho.
What do you think?

- Why did you choose this outfit? Fall is my favorite time of the year for fashion. I love browns, blues, greens, and warm colors and I can wear them all the time in the fall. This outfit is not only a go-to for shooting, but even in my everyday life. The chinos are a little casual, however I think my blazer and red lipstick makes it a little more fancy. This look is clean, classic, and the 31 Bits necklace adds that boho flare so I feel as though I'm staying true to my brand all in all!
- Was it a success or failure? Why? Success! Because I am wearing pants I can maneuver quite comfortably, and my Tory Burch flats come to every wedding with me. Although expensive; it's well worth the investment. You only get two feet so I want to make sure I really take care of them on those long 12 hour days.
- Can you list the brands of all the major/key pieces from the look? Blazer: Zara (this is my go-to place for blazers!); Top: Forever 21 (old); Pants: JCrew; Belt: No Rest for Bridget; Shoes: Tory Burch; Necklace: 31 Bits
