Lately I've been battling an inner contradiction of nerves and excitement. Currently igniting the struggle... my first public speaking engagement as a fashion blogger. The OMG-pinch-me-please moment came a few weeks ago when I was asked to speak on a panel of fashion experts for a fashion filled week of eventshosted by the always fabulous Giuliana Rancic. The event is Wednesday and I am doing my best to fight off the nerves. To help tame the stress, I've turned to summer hues for my latest fall ensemble. As you know, I'm a total color addict and this pink and purple combo is a great reminder of spring and summer as we strut into the year's coldest season. xo
