Style Showcase: Katie

Today I'm excited to introduce Katie from Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Katie says, " I am 22 years old and married the love of my life 2 years ago this May. When I was 3 years old I knew I wanted to be a ballerina and graduated with my BA in dance last April. I have the perfect job teaching and performing 6 days a week but I am going back to school for a nursing degree... because I am a nerd and LOVE learning. The hubby is in dental school and so I spend a lot of my time cooking/baking and trying to get him fat... it doesn't work. I am from South Carolina and I am so proud of where I grew up and the lessons I learned in hospitality and sass."

Tell me about your personal style-

Honestly, I love anything. And I can't lie, as a dancer I am often in sweats and t-shirts, but I find any excuse to dress up when we go out! I really love dress because it gives you a canvas to add on your own style. My go to item is always SHOES! I love them so so much and find any excuse to buy a pair. I probably have 5 pairs of black heels. :/ haha

 Outfit 1- Usually I am not hitting F21 for my main fashion piece; usually it's the shoes and accessories. But, this time I scored this gorgeous feminine dress and paired it with a navy blazer for some added color contrast. 
Dress & Belt: Forever 21, Jacket: Talbots, Shoes: Gianni Bini

What are your beauty secrets?
I always wear sunscreen when I am out and make sure it's in my make-up. I also really love buying a fashion item that will last through the trends. I am really into classic pieces, but I pick up a trendy item here and there too.

What is your beauty must have?
Volum' Express The Falsies blackest black mascara by maybelline NOT waterproof!

Outfit 2- This simple dress was a perfect steal at Banana Republic on sale and in my size, I just about died! I love dresses that I feel could be worn for years or passed down to my future children and never go out of style. It's a twist on the (LBD) with the slimming white outline. 
 Dress- Banana Republic. Shoes- Charlotte Russe. Belt- Vintage.

Where do you get your style inspiration?
I love the timelessness of Audrey Hepburn and her big hats and I wish so bad that everyone wore hats more often! I also love seeing something in a store and making it my own.

Outfit 3-
Outfit 1- My nerdy self came out in this prep argyle sweater. I loved the pops of color to brighten up fall. Argyle is just one of those classic patterns for me.
Sweater & Boot Socks- Target. Shirt- Levi's. Skirt- H&M. Tights- Forever 21. Boots- Steve Madden. Purse- Tommy Hilfiger at Ross.
