Introducing Jillian of Nu Sophisticate

There is no doubt about it, Jillian has "It Girl" style. An Attorney by trade, Jillian is the kind of woman I looked up to as a young girl - smart, accomplished and stylish. I always admired a woman who could hold it down academically and professionally while simultaneously look fly!   It is my pleasure to introduce Jillian and her awesome blog NuSophisticate.  I love your style Jillian, and I'm sure you ladies will too.

So tell us more about yourself, who is Jillian?
I'm an attorney by trade but I have a million other passions. I love shopping, cooking, watching Law & Order (I'm obsessed), decorating, and spending time with my brand new husband :).   

How did you get your start in blogging, tell us a little bit about your blog.
Nusophisticate started as a cool way to keep track of my outfits and to force myself to get dressed up. With work and planning my wedding, I found myself getting stuck in a fashion rut and thought starting a blog would help with that. My blog is truly a PERSONAL style blog. I'm definitely not into following trends, I just wear what I love. 

How would you describe your style? 
I like to describe my style as conservative with a twist. I love classic silhouettes that have an unconventional element (color, draping, texture, pattern, etc.)

Where do you get your style inspirations?

I get a lot of my style inspiration from my mom. Some of her old clothes are still big hits in my wardrobe :)

What are three must-haves that a woman needs in her closet?

A great pair of jeans, little black dress, and a killer pair of heels.

Anything else?
Being fashionable doesn't have anything to do with height or weight, it has everything to do with confidence.  My blog can be found at  - stop by anytime to chit-chat and if you like what you see please join my blog.
