shine bright like a diamond


Wednesday is the new Friday!  I wore this outfit for a casual look.  It's the day before a long weekend, which means that dressing down in my office is totally fine.

 I really love this bright, neon color. I think it's gorgeous. I'm obsessed with these shoes too. They're super comfortable... and adorable. For days when I wear jeans in the office, I always wear a more structured top. It's important to dress up your jeans when wearing them to the office. Pair them with a tucked in dress shirt and classy shoes and you're good to go. 

I'm really happy that this week is a short week. Life has been crazy lately. I've been traveling like crazy for work and have more travel coming up! I'm not complaining though, I absolutely love it. I am, however, looking forward to relaxing this week and eating! I LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook so I'll be in my glory this week. I'll be baking pies and cooking up a storm in the kitchen. 

My hair was doing crazy things in that picture!  Have a wonderful long weekend and Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks so much for reading :)

Loving him was red


Pants again! I'm on a roll here. These are one of my favorite pants I own and somehow this is the first time they've made it on the blog. I love the bright red color of these pants. They're perfect for Fall (and Spring and Summer and Winter too). Of course, I'm wearing stripes on top... I mean, are you surprised? Stripes go with everything. They're definitely my go-to! 

The weather has been weird here in the Northeast lately. It's been rainy and gloomy all week, but last week it was sunny and HOT. It was literally in the high 70s. On days like that, it's hard to figure out what to wear. This outfit did the trick. The top is a sweater material, but lightweight, and the pants are also light and breezy. Flats (I would've worn sandals if I had a pedicure!), a bright lip, and a statement necklace completed the outfit and made it 100% office appropriate! 
I'm heading to Texas next week and I'm really excited. I'll mostly be working (I'm going there for work!) but I'm hoping I have time to eat some BBQ and take in some of the sights! You can check out my Texas adventures on Instagram. Have a great week and thanks so much for reading :)

Fun Pants


I am definitely a fan of fun pants. Pants with fun patterns like I wore in this post and this post. While I usually find myself reaching for a dress when I'm getting ready for work in the morning, lately, I've been throwing pants on more and more. I'm really trying to up my pant game. I have a few everyday black pants which are always great for work, but I really want fun, patterned pants - that are work appropriate (of course!). 

So, enter... these cuties from Loft. I got these a while ago and dug them up deep from the confines of my closet. I went for an easy look and paired them white a structured white top and a statement necklace. My go-to black flats and a bold, red lip completed the outfit. I plan on wearing these pants all through the Fall - maybe with red flats next time! The pants can even work for the winter with a black sweater and tall boots. The possibilities are endless :)  

Have a great week and thanks so much for reading!
