USA, Fashionably Awesome

One of my favorite parts of the Olympics is seeing what the athletes from around the world are wearing for the opening ceremony. It's the most patriotic fashion show in the world. Designers put so much thought into creating these patriotic ensembles that are to be draped on their nation's top athletes. Ralph Lauren designed the outfits for the American athletes. Personally, I think he nailed it.

It's just so tacky-Christmas-sweater-chic. But really, I think RL pulled something off that could have easily been way too over the top, and, well, tacky. However, the outfit exudes classic winter cabin America. The boots I think really pulled the outfit together, with the red laces, and thick soles.

Win or lose, USA is going to look good. But I think they'll win. ;)

Hi everyone! I'm Dana Podgurski! 

I'm a foot in the mouth, tongue in cheek, head in the clouds, and heart on the sleeve kind of gal. I live for new experiences, but am a total sucker for nostalgia at the same time. I'm tough as nails, but am a complete softie for all things kids and animal related. I fly by the seat of my pants, and live for adventure. But I firmly believe that adventure is a mindset that one's self determines.

For work, I am a marketer through and through. Bringing brands to life, and content marketing are passions of mine. Many would consider what I do as nerdy, but I seriously dig it. I have been doing marketing contract work for years, and appreciate the variety it brings, and the relationships I've developed with my clients. To check out my work portfolio, or if you're interested in a partnership, click here.

For fun I love to create - writing/blogging, photography, and painting are my main three mediums of doing so. Feeling good and healthy is also high on my list, as it really lends itself to making everything more enjoyable. So I maintain a very active lifestyle, eat pretty healthy, and am outdoors as much as I can be. And if my blog didn't make it abundantly clear, I absolutely LOVE to travel. I spend any extra money I have on plane tickets, and feel so fortunate to have been to several amazing destinations both domestically and internationally. There's nothing more fulfilling than coming home from a trip and adding a been-there-pin to my map.
