This year has been quite the year for me both professionally and personally. After quitting my corporate career of 7 years at the very end of 2016 to pursue Fashion Jackson full time was something that gave me “all the feels”. Kicking off 2017 I traveled more, worked harder, learned how to be my own boss, was challenged with new opportunities, and created so many memories along the way. While I try to keep my platforms more private, one of my goals for 2018 is to open up and connect more with you all. So cheers to 2017 and I can’t wait to see what 2018 holds! Here’s a look back at some of my favorite moments of 2017.
Our annual trip to Hawaii – we were adventurous and explored more finding new beauty throughout the island.
My first NYFW in February. It was COLD. But I would go back again and again. The energy of NYC brings me so much joy.
Immediately following NYFW I went with a group of friends for a ski trip to Telluride. I’m ready to go back in 2018!
That time Fendi dressed me & invited me to their grand opening party in Dallas – PINCH ME!
It’s not everyday you get to run in a field with perfume. My collaboration with L’Occitane challenged this “street style blogger” in a new & creative way inspiring me to think outside the box.
I was asked to takeover the LTK account for their #TakeoverTuesday. That was a huge achievement for me!
Our first time to Chicago for Lollapalooza! We traveled with our friends & this weekend was definitely one for the books.
Another NYFW for the books. This is one of my favorite intersections to shoot at – I love the stripes in the street and buildings of SoHo. Plus this IRO jacket was one of my favorite purchases all year.
Lauren & I hosted an event for Club Monaco featuring all the looks from their presentation from NYFW – these heels were a hit!
In August I was asked to speak on a panel at the Create & Cultivate Style Summit. It was such a wonderful opportunity to speak alongside my peers and inspiring women in the industry!
I travelled to LA for the Fohr Card conference with Lauren – we left felling so inspired. Also, LA, you’re pretty.
Jet-setted off to Paris for a girls trip. We ate delicious food, saw amazing sites, and shopped of course!
Closed the year out in my favorite city with my favorite people celebrating my birthday!
