I have been looking forward to this post ever since my amazing mom bought me this coat at the beginning of the summer.

So I have a thing for Kate Spade – something about what their company stands for (color, personality and put-together-ness) really resonates with me both in my personal style and in my graphic design style. I love using color in my designs, and of course, I love wearing it.

This coat just emulates everything I love about fashion. It’s out of the ordinary, so it makes me pop when I walk down the street (in a good way). It’s simple but beautiful – the length and cut is beyond perfection. And it has a bow. What else could I wish for? I’m so excited to wear this around campus more once it gets a little chillier, but I am terrified of getting it dirty. It’s my prized posession – I could never forgive myself if something happened to this coat.







Life updates: I just launched my brand new design portfolio on ProSite! Definitely check it out – I’m going to start applying to a lot of internships soon and I wanted my portfolio to look and feel just as professional as I have become. I’m doing a lot of freelance design (hit me up if you need anything). I’ve done a few media kits and marketing materials for people, and it’s so strange to actually be doing what I love for a substantial amount of money. I’m always a little surprised when I get a check in the mail. Hopefully someday I get to work at a place that I love just as much as I love freelancing!
