Happy 4th of July!

DSC_1152I’m a sucker for red, white & blue, anything somewhat patriotic, and because my favorite holiday happens to be the 4th of July when I saw this adorable dress last season I knew that I needed it! Now some people are taking the “not so literal or obvious approach” to 4th of July outfits. But I say why not? It’s the day your outfit can be a little cutsey have fun with it, make it “you” and show your patriotism through your outfit!

I was so excited when I recently received an email from T.J.maxx congratulating me on winning the Maxxinista of the month! I entered the contest shortly after I did my “interview outfit” post and submitted my photo because the top was from TJMaxx. A month later I was notified my outfit was chosen for the month and would receive a $500 gift card! Smiling from ear to ear when I read this email I began to think of all the amazing things I could buy!! When that gift card came in the mail I could not get out the door fast enough to go shopping.

This dress is one of my finds that I am LOVING, for only $39 I had to buy it, it’s the perfect length for my  tall frame and the slits on the side make it look modern and easy. This is just one of the items I purchased, get ready for many more outfit posts of items I buy with my gift card!

I have been interviewing a lot recently for jobs and I have been trying to mix up my career outfit options. I am combining my tops and accessories with office basics. I try to keep it colorful and unique since the field I am in is more creative. I thought I would share one of my interview outfits with you all and I will be sure to post more soon!
