Fall Tones for His & Her :: Olive Dress + Navy Button Down

I’m truly a summer forever type of gal, especially after moving to Coastal Virginia. However, I do have to admit, I’m excited about fall’s arrival! Since it’s still quite warm in Virginia, I’m sharing some ways you can incorporate fall into your wardrobe without sweating it out. Some of my favorite fall colors this season include olive, navy, rich golds and of course, burgundy. I love wearing fall tones in summer silhouettes and pieces. Also, I cannot believe it’s been 16 years since the terrorist attacks on our country. I remember sitting in fifth-grade homeroom and our teachers turned on the TV. We watched the second plane crash into the Twin Towers live and while i was young, I knew nothing would be the same. 

This olive dress looks very similar to dresses made by an expensive designer, but costs less than $100! J.O.A is one of my favorite labels because of the quality and their collection of both trendy and classic pieces. The off the shoulder silhouette keeps me cool, but the color screams fall. Plus, I love the asymmetrical neckline and decorative buttons. Its rich olive color makes this dress is the perfect way to wear fall tones, while staying cool in the summer. This dress is currently on sale for 40 percent off, which is a steal! Read more…

Whimsical Florals :: Poppy Dreams Maxi Dress

Hello, My Beautiful Friends! I hope you are having a relaxing Labor Day! I’m working today, but I absolutely don’t mind at all because tomorrow I am leaving for Texas! I haven’t seen my family since March, so this is a highly anticipated trip! To kick off this week with a bang, I’m sharing this Vici Dolls poppy dreams maxi dress. Breathtaking is immediately what comes to mind when describing this dress. The sheer poppy print floral is just exquisite and there are 3D details where the extra petals are sewn on top of the fabric. I honestly feel like that’s a small detail, but it truly makes the dress magical. This poppy dreams maxi dress comes with a black slip since the fabric is completely sheer. I’m wearing a size small and it fits me well. However, there is some room.  Read more…

Hustle :: The Power Within and How I Style My Hair

I’m a big believer we all have something to offer this world. We all have to know our value and should bring that to each day. T3 Micro asked me to be part of their Power Within Campaign and I was honored to say yes! This campaign is about sharing our unique story and experiences defining who we are. They asked me what’s my “Empoword”, aka what ignites my inner spirit and inspires me to feel confident. The word empowering me most is hustle.

For as long as I can remember, my parents taught me the best thing I can do is work hard, really really hard. Not only did they teach me this, they lived it. My whole family immigrated to the U.S. from Communist Vietnam. My Dad, a former South Vietnamese soldier was in a concentration camp. When they arrived in Texas, they immediately started working. My Dad worked at 7-Eleven overnight while attending college. My Mom worked as a tailor at the Crescent Hotel while also going to school. They both raised three kids while doing this. When my Dad was able to get a better job, his 7-Eleven had to hire seven people to replace just him. Now that is hustling. You cannot control how much raw talent you have or your abilities, but you certainly can work extremely hard to make up for it. Read more…

Mondays in Of Mercer :: Beacon Dress with Pockets

Happy Monday Y’all! I hope my friends who live in and near the Texas Gulf Coast are doing okay. I know so many areas are flooded and the devastation is horrible. That’s something I’m unfortunately a little too familiar with living and reporting in Coastal Virginia. A few Norfolk-based helicopter squadrons are heading toward Houston and I know they will help save lives.

To kick off the work week, I’m sharing this printed work dress with pockets by Of Mercer. This is a great transitional piece for the office as summer starts to wind down. This stretch fabric is incredibly soft and feels like a comfy sweatshirt. Now, who doesn’t like that in a dress we wear to work for at least eight hours? Plus, this is ideal for me as a reporter when I’m out in the field. However, this dress is also great for those who need to travel for work and look professional while being comfortable.  Read more…
