Fashion blogger Reese Nguyen’s style is all about juxtaposition. “Sometimes I’m very girly and I’ll wear a floral print, but I’m also a bit of a tomboy,” she says. “I try to find a happy medium, and I like to be comfortable. Fashion-meets-function is very important to me!”

Last year, while working a corporate job in the energy industry, Nguyen started the blog Oui to Weekends to share her style and thoughts on beauty, fashion and travel. It didn’t take long for her to learn the digital-media ropes and she has since grown her personal brand to the point where she is now working with companies that she believes in and that are in line with her style aesthetic, such as Storets and Premonition Designs. Though the fashion sensibility that has made Oui to Weekends a hit isn’t always in line with the more conventional dress seen in the office towers of the oil-and-gas world, Nguyen continues to push boundaries in the pursuit of her dreams.
