Student style vs Professional style

Good morning love muffins!
 Today one of my friends from high school and her older sister are going to share with you their different views on fashion as they are in different stages in life. I was so excited when I saw familiar faces in the blogging world and I am so excited for you to get to know them!

Here they are :)

Hello Stay Crafty My Friends! Liz and I are the authors to Hawthorn Place. We are new to the blogging world and were so excited when Shelby graciously invited us to guest blog. Since we are in different stages of life, we wanted to share our styles based on our roles as a student and a professional.  

I am a senior in college and love the comfy but cute student style. I chose this combination beginning with the denim top. The great thing about denim tops is that some of the best ones can be found at thrift shops! From there, I immediately paired some black leggings that can also be found real cheap, like these H&M ones above! I am a huge sweater fan, so I chose a longer bulky one for the fall. The cheetah flats are my favorite part of this combination. They are from target, which is one of the best places for cheap and cute anything! Cheetah also seems to be making a statement, especially in J. Crew’s latest catalog! The wristlet is an essential for any college student! To top this outfit off, I added the monogram necklace. I love anything and everything monogrammed! Small, but gives the outfit a pop!

I work in the corporate marketing world so part of my job is looking presentable. One thing that is important to me is that I look professional but still youthful. I love the peter pan collar on this J Crew Factory top. Pair it with some yellow heels and a burgundy purse and you will look great this fall! I like to keep jewelry simple at the office, so most of the time I just wear cute studs, a watch, and a few bangles.  Happy shopping!

Don't be a stranger y'all, go and show them some love on their blog!!
