Hi guys!! Happy Superbowl Sunday!

I just wanted to share some outfits that I styled at work, now live on Free People! :)  It’s seriously such a great feeling to see the entire team’s hard work pay off on the website.  It’s been about a month now at Free People and everyday is a new and exciting challenge.   <3

You can see these products live on the site here!

What do you think of my outfits? I had fun styling festival, girly, edgy, & tomboy inspired looks! <3

First picture in Philly! It was so cold and windy, but I had such a great time apartment hunting and exploring the city with my dad! I have to get used to this 30 degree weather. ;P
