Emerald and Houndstooth

Creative Week 2013 is here! This week is flying by but it's been a blast. During the event Startup Stories yesterday, hosted by the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center, I pulled away today's guest Meghan, one of our JPEC Ambassadors, to help me with today's post! Below is a message from Meghan describing this outfit and her personal style:

"My name is Meghan and I'm a junior studying Journalism/Mass Communication with an Entrepreneurial Management Certificate here at the University of Iowa. I also do video features for Hawkeye Sports. My personal style is comfortable but stylish. I usually will gravitate for things that I think people wouldn't normally go for. I like to be edgy but still stylish and professional, like I did here with my hounds tooth blazer. I'm especially liking boots with leggings and sweaters this season, since you can easily transition the outfit from going to class to a night out, or in front of the camera for Hawkeye Sports." 

I'm a BIG fan of hounds tooth! It's a print that is timeless, so I don't mind splurging a little on a classic hounds tooth piece because I know I'll be able to wear it for years. Make sure to follow along on my Twitter and Instagram accounts for updates on Creative Week!

  1. I love the way the houndstooth looks with the emerald! I have a houndstooth scarf that I love. Will have to try this color pairing with it!
