Happy Friday! As mentioned yesterday, I’m heading out to Washington D.C. soon for a PR industry conference. I’ll be leaving on Sunday, so the weekend will consist of packing and making sure any and all loose ends are tied before leaving town. One of my best pieces of advice for aspiring or current PR practitioners is to invest in networking opportunities, conferences, seminars, etc. Zapwater, the company I’ve worked at for the nearly ten years, does an exceptional job of investing in professional development opportunities, and I’m looking forward to the conference!

What are you up this weekend? Any fun plans?

This colorful skirt is EVERYTHING! I can’t remember the last time I hit “add to cart” so quickly. Best of all, it’s currently 40% off!

Chicago feels like winter, and these boots are VERY necessary (and v cute).

Speaking of boots, these croc-effect boots just arrived, and they’re SO good!

Do you struggle finding great jeans? I’ve been wearing this version on repeat lately, and just invested in two more pairs.

I’ve been wearing these two flats on repeat. This neutral style and this lovely tweed one.
