The Internship and 300 Goodie Bags Later..

(vintage oxford shirt, h&m pants, melissa oxfords, topshop necklace, cambridge satchel, rayban glasses)

The last few days have been insane, whether it's from attending the Chicago Blogger Network's St. Patty's event, working, or even stuffing tons of goodie bags, I'm still alive.
I seriously can't believe that I've been interning for Modern Luxury (CS Magazine) for close to a year. I've done everything from running magazines to clients to packing tons of goodie bags, it's been an amazing experience.
It's funny to see peoples' reactions when I tell them about how I've been interning since I was 18 (their face drop instantly). Although I've had some bumps throughout the last year, (people telling me that I'm wasting my youth, because I'm not going to get hired) I just ignore those comments and keep on moving forward. Who knows, they might be jealous? 
I decided to put together this simple, yet somewhat colorful outfit within 5 minutes before leaving. I feel like my best outfits are always the ones that I do 10-15 minutes before actually leaving for an event/work/school.
My mini arm party. 

I know you guys must be thinking, Why is he is not working a jacket? Well, let's just say that over the past 2-3 weeks Chicago has turned into a volcano. Maybe not a volcano, but super close to it. Good bye jackets, hello shorts.

I love the colour combination too. The finishing touch is that delicious neon citrus bag. The bangles and necklace are also wonderful! For me too, it's the running-out-the-door looks that I love most.

Probably they are jealous... I am a bit too. I love your look, the bag is stunning. And I agree most of the times the best outfits are the not so planned ones :)

I think there's no harm in doing internships, those just gain you more and more experience - and eventually some place will notice your talent & you'll get the dream job ! ^^ I keep my hopes up.

Have a great weekend Luis,
