The Perfect White Lace Blouse

Since spring is starting to show up on the East Coast a bit, I’m celebrating with this all white look, including this perfect white lace blouse. One aspect I love is how well done all of the crochet lace is. You can truly see the quality in this top and feel it when you wear it. This top comes with a cami underneath, too. The sleeves have a little flair for the dramatic because they are a little bit extra, but I love it! I really like high-neck blouses and the detailing around the neck are beautiful. To better show off these details, I went with more subtle earrings and these ear climbers are the perfect touch. While I usually prefer dangling earrings or statement earrings, these are a nice touch with the fun colors and shape.  Read more…

Our Formula of Love & Designing Your Own Engagement Ring

Even though we are a while away from getting engaged, we think about it frequently. The idea of designing your own engagement ring is becoming more popular. I certainly want Johnny to have a hand in how my engagement ring looks! If you are soon-to-be engaged, I’m sure you are looking at rings and learning about your style and taste. James Allen is a go-to retailer for designing your own engagement ring. In fact, years ago when a friend of mine wanted a tension ring for his wife, I recommended James Allen! You want your engagement ring to be perfect for you. All of us are different, which means our engagement ring should reflect that… 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…

Southern Style for Fall :: Blue Meadow Vines Blouse

When it comes to blouses for work, I love soft fabrics I can easily manipulate. That way I can weather them over pants or tuck them into skirts without an issue. This blue meadow vines blouse is perfect for fall. The lace yoke neckline is an instant eyecatcher. Plus, I love how it extends to the shoulders, too. This blouse is lightweight, so you can wear it on its own, or underneath blazers or cardigans if it’s chilly. I always have this problem at work, so I love how chic it looks underneath layers. The vine print is sweet and southern, yet sophisticated enough for the office. I’m wearing a size 0 and it fits well while also being easy to take on and off for a blouse without stretch. I’m styling it casually here with leggings and booties.  Read more…

Mondays in Blue :: Polka Dot Blouse & Stretch Suede Skirt from Lulus

Happy Monday y’all! Boy, was it nice to have some time to myself this past weekend! Thanks to Johnny, I am full force into the Defenders on Netflix. So full force, in fact, I finished the whole show, ha! Weekends are usually a time for me to work on my blog and get set for the week ahead. However, we all need to unwind and “do nothing” sometimes and I did just that. 

I enjoy starting off the week in a powerful outfit. While I usually wear dresses, sometimes I enjoy mixing it up. I usually turn to Lulu’s for trendy clothes, but they have quite a few pieces you can wear to work and look young and fresh. This blue polka dot blouse is fun and flirty with the tie neckline, but in a conservative silhouette. I love the polka dot print and light fabric, which is perfect for summer but keeps the chill off your arms in cold offices. I’m styling it with an ultra soft light beige suede skirt. Pencil skirts aren’t always the stretchiest, but this one is stretchier than some of my workout clothes. Plus, it fits like a glove and the hem is an elegant length. For the weekend, this blue polka dot blouse would be great with white jeans or shorts. Read more…
