Hello everyone! After writing my “Lessons Learned After Graduation” post a few months ago, (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, check it out here) I received tons of feedback regarding my post graduate job and tips on how to land your perfect job after college, or just your dream job in general. So in today’s post, I am talking about one very important factor in your job application process, your resume.  If you’re like me a resume is super hard to put together, because I struggle with deciding what skills and experiences are…

Hello everyone! Remember me? It’s been way too long since my last post and here’s the explanation. So I recently started my first “big girl” job in New York City. Working for a social content platform in the city that I love has been the best post grad experience. For the last couple of months I was so worried I was never going to find a job, but I kept telling myself to be patient and good things will come and to my surprise they did. Now, instead of spending my days applying for jobs,…

Making a statement in the fashion world is a breeze, thanks to fun, colorful, and elaborate jewelry. And for me over the past month, my lovely boot cast treating my broken ankle can also cause heads to turn, but that’s a whole different story.  Back to the jewelry, I have been no stranger to the whole statement necklace trend and have always found myself finishing up a simple look by adding an ornate necklace.  But lately statement necklaces have not just been in the spotlight, but so has statement earrings.  The statement earring trend started…

Cue the scene from Mean Girl.   Regina: Oh my God, I love your skirt!  Where did you get it? Lea Edwards: It was my mom’s in the ’80s. Regina: Vintage, so adorable. Lea Edwards: Thanks. Regina: [after girl walks away] That is the ugliest effing skirt I’ve ever seen. Even though mean girl Regina was mocking the character’s vintage style, currently vintage fashion is all the rage in the fashion world.  Slowly, I have been shopping more vintage styles and incorporating unique pieces into my looks.  What’s great about vintage clothing is the history…

For those of you who don’t know, LivForStyle actually started on YouTube.  Back in the day, my favorite videos to upload were my monthly favorite videos, where towards the end of the month I would recap a few products I was loving throughout that month.  Although, it is not the end of the month just yet, I decided to go back to my roots, and round up some of my favorite products and things that piqued my interest these past couple of weeks.  And still nursing a broken ankle, I have been spending a lot…

While browsing through the photos featured in today’s style post, I can’t help but think what a refreshing change it is to see my right ankle in a pair of style booties, instead of the ugly gray medical boot that is acting as a cast for my broken ankle.  For those of who don’t follow me on any sort of social media (you’re missing out) I broke my ankle last week when I was vacationing in the Hamptons.  Of course, LivForStyle put style ahead of comfort and decided to wear a pair of high heels…

If someone asked me to describe one trend that never seems to go out of style, works for any season, and looks fabulous on everyone that would totally have to be floral prints.  Imagine going into a store or browsing through your favorite online shop and not seeing some sort of variation of the floral print?  The fashion world would be kind of boring without it, am I right?  You can find a floral print that works best for you.  Whether that’s the typical colorful print, more of a tropical floral pattern, black and white…

You know your life is hectic when you see a folder of photos on your desktop, open the folder, and realize that you never uploaded those photos.  Oops!  Even though these photos are a couple of weeks old, the outfit featured in today’s style post is still on repeat. Who doesn’t love a good summer maxi dress?  One that you can just throw on and not worry about wearing matching bottoms.  This maxi dress I am wearing is pretty much just a very long button down shirt, which I love.  I don’t have many clothes…

I always wanted to write a reflections post after graduating from college, but I did not expect it to take so long for me to sit down and actually write it.  With that being said and the absence from my blog over the last couple weeks, I don’t do well with transitions.  So the transition from a college student to a college grad, to moving back home, to applying for full time jobs and waiting to start my next adventure has been difficult.  Lately, there have been more days plagued with lack of motivation and…

         It’s about time the sun has peaked out from behind the clouds.  Although, still on the chilly side, the bright sunny days have inspired me to wear some of my new, favorite daytime dresses.  Nothing is better than those days where you can just throw on a dress rather than worry about wearing jeans and finding a matching top.  Dresses like the one in today’s post are the best because they act as a blank slate, meaning you can wear pretty much whatever you want with the dress to capture your own personal style.…
