Work Smart to Play Hard - Sensible Stylista

Work Smart to Play Hard

I'm beyond excited to start the day because I'm spending it with the one and only DCFoodporn! I'll be updating a ton on instastories so make sure you follow along.  We'll be hitting up more than one place so it should be a good time - hopefully my food coma won't be TOO bad!

Then, I'm getting up early to teach on Saturday and heading to the Walters Art Museum to get my exploration on afterwards.  It's been years since I last went so I'm pumped!  On Sunday, I have a longgggg but awesome shoot planned with Jared Wolfe in Alexandria, VA.  I'm probably going to be there all day, but no complaints here!  We always get a lot of really cool shots so I'm pumped to work with him again.  What are you guys up to this weekend? Do you have any cool plans?
I used to be obsessed with working 24/7, but my mentality's changed quite a bit over the last few months. I genuinely DO think it's possible to have it all!  You can be a girl boss, while making the most of life.  Yes, sacrifice is obviously necessary, but if you work smart, your efficiency will allow you (at least) some breathing room.  Plus, it's all a crucial part of your education anyway so put yourself out there and try new things as often as possible.
I've been doing fun stuffs each week to challenge myself, and I feel so much happier which in turn helps my productivity.  See? I told you it was a total win-win!  So, join me on my journey to grab life by the balls and kick ass all day, every day.
Now, a few words on today's featured OOTD!  I decided to style a super casual look for you guys. I centered my getup around my new Laila Jayde tank and paired it with skinnies.  To battle the cold, I threw on a fab coat from Free People (I bought it at Last Call last year) and wore velvet booties to match.  I finished things off by carrying a statement bag from Handbag Heaven!  I don't know if ombre is still "in" or not, buttt I don't really care.  I like it, and that's all that matters, ha!  What do you guys like to wear on the daily? Describe your everyday "uniform."
