We've been talking a lot about personal brand in my grad school classes and what it means for us as PR professionals and people in general. This is something I've thought a lot about lately. It's not just what I want to think my qualities and values are, but it's more what other people see as my qualities and values. This couldn't be any more applicable than it is in the blogger world. My reputation, company, success and image lies solely on how YOU (my readers, followers, stakeholders) perceive me. With this in mind, I took to Instagram stories to gain insight on what and how my readership views me. It's so interesting to see the qualities and values others prescribe to you-- many I was pleased to hear and others I was pleasantly surprised. 

I think as a person working in the social media world, whether that's blogging, Instagram, PR, integrated marketing or whatever, it is valuable to reach out to those invested in your brand for feedback. You may just learn something about yourself you never knew before! 

Enough about that, I am thrilled about today's outfit. I went a little picture happy on this post because I just love how Brian captured this look. This is an outfit I would wear everyday if it could go unnoticed. I saved up for this t-shirt, and yes, I may be insane to spend this much on a t-shirt, but I don't care. I've wanted one since they came out, and I'm do not regret getting it at all! I'm wearing an extra small, and it's a little big. It runs really large so definitely size down. I promise, you'll need to. 

Oversized blazers are a hot piece for the fall. This one is from Free People & also available on sale at Nordstrom but only in a medium. I am wearing a small, and it's swallows me. It's how I like it, but definitely do not go larger to get the oversized effect because it already does that on its own! 

Over-the-knee boots are my favorite. These are old Ivanka Trump from back when her stuff was sold on Nordstrom, and I've about worn them to pieces. I actually just ordered a new pair of OTK boots that I've been drooling over. So I CANNOT WAIT for them to come in! 

This look is a simple one to achieve and re-create! I'll definitely be wearing variations of it through the fall and winter... so just bear with me! 

Have the loveliest Thursday xx
