|Work & Play: Shannon's look can easily go from work to happy hour!|
Since she is in the business world, currently working at a local university, she has to remain professional but still likes to mix it up by bringing in different elements to show her own personality, like this outfit clearly demonstrates. Shannon also said that her favorite trends for spring are anything with the black and white color scheme and sheer tops, because both can look sophisticated, but also causal when needed. Perfect for the office!
Shannon's advice to fellow fashionista's is to be bold and step out of your comfort zone! She said, "It's your style and it is what you like, so do not worry about what everyone else is going to think and just rock it!" She also said that when it comes to her clothes and personal style, that going for what you're the most comfortable in is what you will feel the most beautiful wearing. Which she said allows your most important accessory, confidence, to shine through. I couldn't agree more!

She also said that GQ's mention of Pittsburgh being the third-worst dressed city is a little harsh. Shannon said that we are simply a city that shows an abundance of loyalty to our sports teams and we like to represent. But that there are a lot of people in Pittsburgh who have great style and an awesome eye for fashion. I laughed out loud when she said, "clearly GQ never ventured down to Shady Side." So true. And, on that note...happy weekend everyone! Remember to keep it classy, stylish, and like Shannon, unique!
