She's a Boss Because...

A lot of you ladies are doing big things and making huge strides in the corporate world and beyond. You’re graduating from some amazing educational programs, interviewing for some out of this world positions and starting up some major businesses. With all of that to think about, stressing about what to wear just isn’t an option. Hence, the first installment of the “She’s a Boss Because..." series. Here, we can discuss different work related clothing items and accessories that will help us look like the bosses we already are.

So, you know that NuSophisticate was nominated for the “Best Rookie Blog" award at the first ever Style Bloggers of Color Conference (SBOCC). The hubs and I looove Atlanta, so when we heard that the conference was being held there, we knew that we had to attend. There’s something about Atlanta that leaves us feeling energized and inspired after each visit. 

Although we always have a ball when we’re in Atlanta, there’s something about this visit that left us feeling ultra-renewed. For me, it was the time spent surrounded by all the fabulous, intelligent, and inspiring women that attended the conference. For him, I’m sure it had something to do with the Miami Heat making it to the NBA finals. Either way, we both left Atlanta on cloud nine. So, here are a few Instagram photos from the trip this weekend.

Oh, and by the way, WE WOOOONNNN! Nusophisticate is officially SBOCC’s “Best Rookie Blog” of 2012! Thank you, thank you, thank you for visiting and supporting me!

Lazy Days

 Last Saturday was the laziest Saturday I've had in a while. My husband and I had a lunch date, walked to the neighborhood library, and spent the rest of the day reading random books, drinking iced coffee, and people watching.
