Simple Statement :: Orange Bell Sleeve Dress & Pearl Flats

Happy Monday Y’all! The start of this week is a little rough for me since I had a 6-day work week. My weekends are usually pretty busy, but when I need to ram everything I usually accomplish in two days into one, it gets difficult. If you’ve been a Color & Chic reader for a […] Read more…

Cold Weather Chic :: Velvet Pants for the Desk to Dinner

I hardly ever wear pants to work, but these navy velvet pants are making me rethink that. It’s no surprise velvet is still living out its moment. I love the lean silhouette of how these velvet pants are cut. There are off-seam pockets, which is a must-have for me. Plus, the way the pants are tailored looks and feels custom. I appreciate the contoured waistband, which helps with fit. I’m wearing a size 00 Petite and it actually runs just a dash big on me. Hence, my belt, which is also big for me, ha! There’s a little bit of smoke and mirrors going on here. Don’t worry, I plan on getting the belt fixed! I’m clearly having some petite girl struggles. While I’d normally consider an alternation job, I’m going to leave these pants alone since they aren’t that big on me. Read more…

Shades of Gray for Work :: Check Midi Dress & Coat

I love a good check pattern in the fall and winter. I’m teaming up with River Island to bring you this chic work outfit perfect for chilly days. This gray check midi dress has a conservative cut with its high neckline. However, the asymmetrical frill detailing in the front gives this dress a twist and modern look. In the winter, I love to layer, so high neck pieces such as this check midi dress are perfect. I have cashmere shells that keep me warm and try to wear them with everything. This dress is a lovely jersey fabric with more of a bodycon fit. I recommend sizing up if you are between sizes. I’m wearing a US 2, which skims over my body. .. Read more…

Workwear Chic :: Pearl Top and Tapered Pants

I am one of those people who work 24/7. I absolutely love what I do whether it’s being a journalist or finding clothes to help women feel confident.  As you may know, I prefer dresses at work since they are one piece. However, I’m branching out and sharing a great option for the office featuring pants. These River Island tapered pants are so flattering. They really elongate and slim the legs. That’s something this petite gal can get on board with. At first, I thought these could look off, but they look great. River Island’s website calls this color dark gray. However, they are more taupe to me. This color is so versatile and you can wear it all year. I’m wearing size US 2 and they fit so well. If anything, I could hem them an inch, but they look just fine without… Read more…
