Smart Casual and Feminine

Greetings BusiChic,

Do you work with anyone solely online? Say a team located interstate or even overseas who you can call on the phone, chat to via email or messenger but have never actually met IRL?

I’ve been receiving emails from Kristen of RewardStyle for some time now but it was only last week that we finally got to meet IRL. Kristen was in town as part of her role as Senior Account Manager to meet publishers like myself who are interested in using the portal as a way to monetise our sites.

Have you ever looked at a street style look here and thought – where did that piece come from? Where can I buy something like that? While I try to spend time researching looks for you, RewardStyle makes it possible for me to provide you with affiliate links so that I’m somewhat compensated for my time spent researching. How does that sound to you?

I thought that I’d experiment by photographing Kristen herself! A fashionista who likes to dress simply, Kristen’s look is perfect for those in Smart Casual dresscodes. Those looking for a bit more formality could start by switching from the casual ankle boot to a polished pump style.

Kristen wears: Mania Mania “Spirit” ring and ASOS studded ring,
Tucker Shirt
 Westward Leaning sunglasses
crystal ring detail

How pretty is the shade of Kristen’s manicure? Ring by Mania Mania.

ASOS studded ring adds some edge to Kristen’s feminine outfit.

Shopbop, Nordstrom, ASOS and ZARA.

You do a lot of travel as part of your job, what do you pack? And you were telling me that your luggage didn’t arrive until days into your trip- what things did you wish that you’d packed in your carry-on?

I packed everything! I wasn’t sure what the weather would be like and I heard it changes constantly in Melbourne – so I packed for warm and cold. I wish I had packed more in my carry on because the airline lost our luggage. Lesson learned there!

My best tip for travel is to pack a lot of black and white. It always looks chic and you can mix and match it. I also always bring a good pair of booties (usually black) with a comfortable heel height. They are good for meetings and and transition well into evening for events.- doesn’t hurt that they are very comfortable and easy to walk in.

RewardStyle is based in Dallas, Texas. For BusiChic travellers to the area, can you recommend us some venues?
