Teal Party

7/25/16





Hi friends! I am so sorry for my hiatus (once again). Life has just been so crazy lately and it's been hard to keep up with work, wedding planning, other peoples weddings/bridal showers/baby showers/engagement parties...etc. I am so happy to say that in these past few weeks, I've gotten the bulk of my wedding planning done! My venue and date are secured. I've got a photographer and cinematographer, a DJ, a hair and makeup artist, and a hotel for my out-of-town guests. I love crossing things off my list. What's next? A florist and decorator. I must say that I am having SO much fun with planning! 






Now, onto my outfit! The other day I went to Panera - I was craving their Fuji Apple Chicken Salad. Next door to my local Panera is a Banana Republic. I saw some SALE signs plastered on the window and of course, I just couldn't resist. I walked out with this fun top and a few more cute outfits I can't wait to share with you! I'm swoooooning over the color of this pleated top. How gorgeous is it? For work, I dressed it up with black pants and strappy sandals. A bright coral lip, a fun necklace, and a top knot completed the look. I definitely plan on dressing this top down with denim cutoffs. I love that this top seasonal. It can be worn all season round. It can be dressed up or dressed down. The cut on this top is so feminine and flattering. It comes in black too! The top IS sheer, so I wore a tank underneath. It runs a little big, so size down!



Are you keep cool in this heat? I'm basking in the air conditioning both at home and at work. It's too hot to be outside! Thank you so much for reading! I'll be back next week :)

Hi friends! I'm so sorry for my hiatus. I don't have any exciting excuse as to my whereabouts other than the fact that I've been SO insanely busy. Work has been so crazy - I've been working on a lot of really fun projects. Then there's wedding planning which has been keeping me busy. Plus, there's been graduations and weddings and bridal showers and baby showers to attend! 

 Anyway. On to my outfit. Guys, I am obsessed with this dress. I guess it's no secret that I love, love, love dresses that are loose fitting and a little baggy. I absolutely fell for this dress. I love the way it fits, I love the bright colors, and I love the pattern. I paired it with my nude feels (I didn't have a pedicure!), a bold lip (duh), and a turquoise stone necklace that I stumbled upon when I was cleaning my room. Don't you love it when you find treasures like that when you least expect it? 




I actually wore this dress on one of the cooler days we had a few days ago. The dress is definitely lightweight enough where it can still be worn all summer long. I wore the dress to a friends baby shower a few weeks ago as well. It's a really versatile dress and I love that!

Have a wonderful week! Thanks so much for reading :)

Springtime Blazer

5/26/16




I am loving this warm weather! I always find it a little difficult to dress for work when it just starts getting warm. I'm not quite ready to break out my summer dresses, but I'm definitely ready to put away my winter tights and bulky sweaters. 





The solution? This gorgeous long, sleeveless blazer. It's the perfect length for my petite frame, lightweight enough to wear when it's 85 degrees outside and 100% office appropriate. All check marks checked off! I love how structured the blazer is. I can also see myself wearing this outside of the office with high-waisted jeans, a crop top, and sandals. It can also be worn with a dress for important meetings.



Are you excited for the long weekend? I can't wait! I don't have much planned other than a few bbq's. I definitely see a lot of (much needed) rest and relaxation in my future for this weekend.

Thank you so much for reading :)

Office Kimono

5/12/16





 Hi Friends! Happy Friday Eve! Sorry for the hiatus. I have a good excuse though. I've been a busy little bee! I've been wedding planning. I'm happy to say that my venue, photographer, and cinematographer are all booked. We're now on the hunt for DJ's. One thing at a time! Life has been crazy and stressful lately. Work has been very busy and I've been spending most of my free time consumed in wedding planning




Lately, I've really been drawn to no-fuss outfits for the office. I purchased this gorgeous white kimono a few weeks ago when Loft was having a super sale. I kept the outfit all black and white with a bold lip. This office was effortless. It was easy but still put-together and stylish.




I must mention how freakin' comfortable the kimono was. Usually, the first thing I do when I get home from work is change into a t-shirt and leggings. The kimono was so comfortable that I actually kept it on allllllllll night. I love the crisp white color and how it can be dressed up or dressed down. I know I'll be wearing this to work A LOT, but also on the weekends with jeans and sneakers.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for reading :)
