Weekend outfits: I'm just a regular business woman these days.

Remember when I went to district level competition for the Marketing program of students I'm in; DECA? (The largest student-lead organization in the world, I hear.)
Well, I didn't qualify for state, my parter and I were runner-ups.

it turns out that there is a DECA Quiz Bowl team here at state level, and our Marketing teacher got to pick a few 'select' students to participate, and he chose me!

So, at 10am this Friday, I will be headed to state competition.

There's a couple funny things to this story though:

1) I have to be dressed 'business professional' at all events
2) If we don't pass the preliminary round that's Friday night, technically I'm done for the rest of the weekend.
3) Saturday night, we're going to a hockey game. All 2,500 of us students competing at state-level.

Well, you guys are professional adults. I thought I'd give you a look at my 'professional' outfits.

(Sorry none of the photos are full-body shots, none of my family can take pictures worth crap, so I have to do it myself.)

Oh, and I bought myself my first purse. Yeah. Not sure how I feel on this, because I never thought the day would come. But, I knew that I would need something to be able to hold all of my money, my phone, schedule, and all that other junk I'd be needing this weekend. Isn't it cute though?

And my new wallet/clutch:

Well, what do you think? Professional enough? I hope so! :)

I really don't care if the Quiz Bowl team wins or loses: If we win, that's great, but if we don't pass the preliminaries, I've got a full day free at a 4 star hotel! ;)

Wish us all luck. I will blog about it when we get back. See you on the flip side, friends.
Have an awesome weekend!


  1. Hi Brittney! You commented on my blog a little while ago and I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate it! I am also OBSESSED with French culture, and I like to find ways to apply the French philosophy to everyday life.

    Love your professional outfits! I'm 23 and still find it weird to dress "professionally" sometimes.

    Anyway, if you're interested, I kept a blog while I was living in Paris at and thought you might be interested in reading about my impressions. I will continue to follow your blog!

  2. You are adorable! I was in DECA in highschool and LOVED it- my partner and I were actually runners up in regional competition as well:-) Loved marketing!

  3. Courtney - That's awesome! I'm reading your other blog right now. Thanks for letting me know! France lovers on! ;)

    Shalyn - That's cool! Small world ;) Marketing IS fun. So's DECA! I think it's a good program.
