    Happy Thursday Babes ♥

    I am gearing up for a fun weekend ahead + it’s putting me in a bit of a tropical mood…maybe since Vegas is filled with pool parties and palm trees…much like LA but I digress haha :p I shot this fun palm print look over the summer but I honestly don’t care that fall is upon us, I am sharing it…yolo…am I right? :p 

    I have always been a fan of palm prints whether it is home decor or apparel ever since I moved to LA…honestly makes me feel like I am in vacation mode year round.

    I went pretty much head to toe palm print. I am loving this palm print kimono…it is great to wear at the pool or layered of a simple camisole like I did here or even a dress. The print is fun + adds an instant ‘pop of color‘ to any look.

    One piece of this look I will be wearing well into the fall season is this suede button front skirt. It is great to style with any blouse or sweater. Pair it with boots or heels for the office or for a day out with your girls.

    My favorite part of this look? These palm print heels! Aren’t they so fun? The platform style makes them trendy + comfortable. They are also on sale for under $40.

    Because I love being matchy matchy, I had to also wear a palm print clutch like this one. Perfect accessory to add a little tropical paradise to any look.

    Happy Monday Ya’ll!

    I don’t know about you, but I have a serious case of the Mondays! After clearing out a full inbox, I am finally feeling a little relieved. Honestly, nothing stresses me out more than an inbox filled with emails. If I see a notification, I must check it…my BF definitely thinks I am a nut but hey…I don’t ever want to leave an e-mail unanswered hehe :p 

    My boo + I laid low this past weekend since this weekend we are heading to VEGAS! I am super excited to celebrate my boo’s bday in Sin City. While we aren’t big gamblers by any means (we both would rather gamble with our money in the stock market than at the Blackjack table haha :p) we are super excited to explore, relax + live it up! I surprised him with a fun car tour featuring one of his favorite car guys he likes to watch so I am ready to rev up + see what bad ass cars we will get to check out over the weekend!

    What I love about fall is how easy it is to transition your favorite summer pieces for cooler weather. This pink pleated midi skirt was on repeat for me this summer – styled with a crop top or body suit, so I styled it for fall with a chambray button down blouse that I tied for a feminine look!

    I love this look for fall since it is fun, flirty + great for hanging with friends or date night. I also plan on styling this midi skirt with a chunky sweat for winter with ankle boots!

    My bag was a graduation gift to myself when I graduated high school – the Louis Vuitton Speedy. This bag is an oldie but still a goodie.

    Now I don’t know about you but I am BEYOND excited for fall to be here…the hot LA temps are causing me to stay inside daily + bast in the AC. It’s time for a little breeze + some fall style. One of my favorite parts of fall…you guessed it, BOOTS! Whether it is ankle boots, peep toe booties, over the knee boots, etc…the list goes on + on, I love how one boot can totally elevate your fall style. A lot of my boots have truly lasted me YEARS to be honest.

    To kick off the fall season (crazy to think it is officially fall in a little under a week), I am rounding up my favorite boots from various categories + at various price points!

    Happy Weekend Babes ♥

    I hope ya’ll are having a great weekend! I am laying low this weekend prepping for a busy week ahead + celebrating my boo’s birthday next weekend in Vegas! It’s finally beginning to cool down here in LA so it’s about time I embrace fall style…including OTK boots – my FAVORITE! I don’t know what it is about over the knee boots, but I find them so sexy, especially in a nude color since they elongate your legs.

    I am super excited about today’s look because it features one of my favorite fashion brands of the moment…Lysse. What I love about this brand is that all of their pieces are great quality + retail at an affordable price point. All of Lysse’s pieces are great staples to keep in your closet, especially the Deep V-Neck Dress + Cropped Denim Jacket I am wearing today.

    I am loving this V-Neck Dress for a few reasons.  1. The material is beyond cozy + chic,  2. It has gorgeous embellishment on the shoulder straps +  3. It has a really flattering fit!

    I paired it with this fun cropped denim jacket which you can style up or down with anything. The material stretches to flatter your shape + it isn’t too heavy.

    Happy Wednesday All! 

    I am super excited to be kicking off a new series on my siteCAREER. While many of you know me as just MissyOnMadison the blogger, my 9-5 is actually Digital Director where I oversee digital strategy + implementation ranging from influencer partnerships, product seeding, social media strategy, content creation, community management + more for multiple clients spanning from luxury brands to beauty companies to lifestyle, fashion, fitness consumer clients + more. I’ve been in this field for over 6 years and in these past 6 years I have had highs + lows in my career that I have helped form me into the business woman I am today.

    For a while, friends, influencers, co-workers + more have asked for my advice whether it come to finding the right job they are passionate about, landing the interview they are working so hard for, perfecting their resume, the list goes on + on. What I learned over the years about myself is that one of my greatest passions comes from helping others either starting out in the industry or those in the industry looking for a change of pace or to find their happy place.

    To kick off my Career series I wanted to share my…

    10 Tips For Landing Your Dream Job

    *while I am no expert, these are tips I have found quite useful over the years*

    ONE

    Know Your Skill Set

    This may seem to be one of the most obvious things when it comes to searching for a job but I have come across either applicants who don’t clearly read the job description or try to fake it till they make it and at the end of the day that has resulted in unhappy employers + in turn unhappy employees.

    What I mean by ‘Know Your Skill Set‘ is this – If you are on the job hunt and applying for jobs and you come across requirements in a job description you either are not familiar with or not something you feel truly proficient in, do your research. If it is something you may not be able to pick up on right away, don’t apply to the job + assume you will figure it out along the way. An employer is hiring you to fill a specific set of needs + you are their to serve their company. If you apply to a job and A) Don’t have the applicable experience to the tasks at hand or B) Lie and say you do and then can’t execute such tasks, you are only hurting yourself. Nothing frustrates me more than someone saying they can do XYZ then hiring them and I realize they can’t execute the projects I am throwing their way.

    This brings me to number 2…

    TWO

    Do Your Research

    When you are on the job hunt, you most likely have a specific role / job in mind. Do your research whether it be on LinkedIn, Indeed, company websites etc and read multiple job descriptions for roles you are interested in.

    If you are finding that a lot of the roles you are seeking have similar required skills you don’t yet possess, now is a good time to invest in yourself to gain those skills for future employment. For example, when I started my career as a social media coordinator in NYC, I was completely green to social media. I didn’t know the ins and outs of tracking analytics or how to showcase ROI etc. I shortly learned that with any role, ROI is key so I became proficient in learning Google Analytics + other reporting software so rather than just being content with my current skill set, I expanded my skill set which opened me up to further opportunities.

    This brings me to number 3…

    THREE

    Know Your Goals

    Whether you are fresh out of college looking to land your first full time job or you are a few years into the industry + looking to move up in your career, it is super important to keep your eye on the prize + know where you want to see yourself in your career.

    By thinking ahead to the job you want aka your ‘Dream Job’ you can better focus on taking the steps to help you get their along the way. If you want to be a CEO that means you need to learn EVERYTHING about the business you want to run someday. From the mailroom to the boardroom, becoming high up in a company doesn’t happen overnight, it happens from learning day by day skills you need to get there.

    This leads me to 4…

    FOUR

    Always Have A Positive Mindset

    Now this is just a tip for life in general but having a positive mindset while you are on the job hunt or while you are at a job that you want to move up in is key. While searching for jobs, it may sometimes seem hopeless – especially if you are on Linkedin and you see a listing is X amount of days old with thousands of applicants who already applied, but I have found from personal experience that when you feel negatively about your prospects, that negativity drags you down + becomes your reality. Call me crazy, but I totally believe it. Always think positively, give your all in each + every interview, application, potential opportunity etc.

    This also applies if you are currently employed. If you are not thrilled with your job + want to switch your role or company or even move up and get a promotion, being positive is key. Be the employee your coworkers + upper management enjoy being around. Be the employee who comes up with solutions rather than excuses, this will go a long way to help you grow in your career.

    Onto number 5…

    FIVE

    Get Organized

    Before you begin your job search put together what your dream job entails. Are there certain companies you are interested in? Put together a list of all your dream companies and see if they have an opening that fits your skill set. So many people look at job openings on LinkedIn and mass apply to anything that is remotely similar to what they are looking for rather than actually focusing on the companies they see themselves wanting to work for.

    List the tasks you would like to do in your dream role, the benefits you are seeking etc. Sometimes collecting all your thoughts prior to the hunt helps you better find the perfect role for you.

    Which brings me to number 6…

    SIX

    Customize Your Resume

    When applying to multiple jobs to land the right one, it may seem like a good idea to have a resume that is one size fits all. That is not the best idea. If you are applying for a role that has a heavy focus in a specific area, tailor your resume to really highlight your skill set in that area. Your resume is most of the time the first impression a potential employer has about you, you want to make it an impactful one. 

    Something I find to be helpful is to include words from the job description on your resume or in your cover letter so this way you clearly show you read the description + have the desired skills they are looking for.

    This brings me to 7…

    SEVEN

    Prepare For The Interview

    Before heading to any interview I would do a fair amount of prep and research. If I was set up on an interview via a recruiter, I would learn everything I need to know about the person I am meeting with + what they are looking for from the recruiter. By having that information I could then bring any applicable examples of work, portfolios etc with me. I also can better determine what to wear given the office environment.

    In the case I had an interview for a job I personally applied to, I would research my point person on LinkedIn, maybe we went to the same college or were from the same town etc. Plus it makes you more comfortable knowing who you will be meeting with.

    Another thing to brainstorm ahead of time is how you may answer certain interview questions. Without a doubt most employers ask how you can improve their company (i.e. for me it was ‘What do you think of our current social media?’ ‘What would you change?’ etc.). Other big questions are…Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years? What do you like to do in your free time? Why are you interested in this position? What are your strengths + weaknesses etc?

    Now onto 8…

    EIGHT

    Follow Up

    Throughout my entire career I have been a huge fan of ‘following up.’ What this means is after every interview whether it was through an interview I set up or a recruiter, if someone took the time to meet with me for a potential position, I would send a thank you note via email.

    A lot of people don’t do this and it truly surprises me. I personally feel showing interest in the position so much that you follow up afterwards shows A) Manners + Etiquette and B) Your passion for the role. It can be a short 2-3 sentence email, but a little thank you goes a long way when trying to make a lasting impression.

    Onto tip number 9…

    NINE

    Network

    This may sounds crazy but I have over 20,000 Linkedin connections! Why? Because I connect with everyone in my industry that I can either work with, learn from, have worked with etc. I connect with brands, influencers, former and potential clients + beyond. If you want to work for Google, find the key players in the department you are interested in and add them. When there is a role you apply to you can even reach out directly to the HR person for the company via Linkedin to hopefully standout amongst the reviewal process.

    Networking also includes in person networking. Go to industry events, connect with other people in your industry, attend conferences, seminars etc. The more people in your network, the better probability you will have a link in one of them to your dream job!

    Last but not least number 10…

    TEN

    Be Yourself

    This may seem super obvious or cliche but if you don’t feel confident or comfortable when heading into an interview, you are setting yourself up for failure. A lot of times when I conduct interviews I can sense if someone is simply telling me what I want to hear rather than being themselves. When I am hiring, I focus on someones personality, energy + overall if they have a good aura about them. You may have the best experience out of the bunch but if you are acting cocky, or talk negatively about your previous company or others to bring yourself up in an interview, that is a bad sign and a huge red flag for an employer.

    Interviewers know you may be nervous, especially if it is your dream job, you want to nail it. The most important part of any interview is to show your PASSION. If an employer can feel your passion for the role, company etc they will love that!

    Happy Monday ♥

    I don’t know about you, but I had a case of the Monday’s today…maybe you could call it Monday blues…so I found it fitting to of course share a blue look for fall. I find navy to be so chic + a great alternative to black. While I got this dress earlier in the summer, I think it can be great for fall with a layered cardigan or even pair it with jeans! But my favorite part of this look are my shoes + bag…I mean come on…aren’t they fab?!

    I got this dress from an online boutique called Poppy + Sky, but I found some similar options below since it is sold out on their site. Honestly, any summer time floral dress can easily be transitioned to fall with the right accessories etc.

    I have always been a huge fan of swing dresses because they flatter every body type and are so feminine with the flowy silhouette. While they aren’t always ideal in the wind hehe :p (Marilyn Monroe moment anyone) but they are super comfy + stylish.

    One of the many things I love about blogging is discovering new brands, companies + designers. Today’s post is filled with BOTH!

    When I first spotted these stunning heels on instagram, I knew I had to have them. How gorgeous are they? The platform trend is one I am all about because they are super comfortable. These blue satin heels with the bedazzled buckle detail from Tina Maria (a fab designer) are pure perfection. I made them work in a more casual setting here, but I will for sure dress these up for a date night sometime soon 😉 Maybe I will take them with me to Vegas next weekend for my boo’s birthday!

     My bag is from another designer I discovered on instagram, Luxchilas. Luxchilas has tons of great designs from accessories to handbags that totally brighten up any look. This blue half moon straw bag is the perfect pop of color to add to any outfit. I love the size + straw like material, it is going to be my go-to bag for my upcoming trip to Florida in February!
