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…

My Tassel Earrings Launch with olive + piper!

Oh my goodness! I’m over the moon excited about this blog post. I got the incredible opportunity to design a pair of earrings with olive + piper, one of my favorite jewelry brands! These are the Saigon Tassel Earrings and they are everything I could ever want in earrings. I named them after the Capital of Vietnam, which my family fled from after the communist party took over following the end of the Vietnam War. To me, being aware of my family’s incredible struggle and sacrifice motivates me to work even harder and to succeed. Plus, Saigon is a stunning city and a beautiful name. Read more…

Comfy Tie-Sleeve Sweatshirt for Fall

Happy Monday Y’all! While you’re reading this, I’m most likely in Puerto Rico, doing a story on a local foundation doing disaster relief there. I previously got the chance to fly to Texas with this same foundation when they provided relief to Hurricane Harvey victims. I know Puerto Rico will be a lot different and I’ll be sure to share it with y’all soon!

Sweaters have a really soft spot in my heart. I seem to collect more each season, yet they are all unique and different from one another. This olive tie-sleeve sweatshirt is cropped and super soft. As you may know, cropped silhouettes are great for petite ladies. This one hovers around my belly button and I’m 5’3 with an average torso length. I love the casual feel and slightly oversize look. Plus, you can also wear it off one shoulder, if you like! The fabric is a cozy knit that’s 100 percent cotton, so you know it’s soft. The raw-cut edges are a nice touch, too, especially for fall. Tie-sleeves are really on trend right now and these scream boho chic. This olive tie-sleeve sweatshirt would be great with a cute velvet or corduroy skirt, too. Also, this sweatshirt comes in ivory and blush, so olive isn’t the only color. Read more…

Leaf-Shaped Lace Dress for Fall :: Greetings from Charleston

Happy Monday and October Y’all! Greetings from Charleston, South Carolina! My sister is visiting me for a few days, so we decided to take a road trip somewhere fun. Charleston immediately came to mind! Plus, the drive is less than seven hours, so it’s not too bad. I will be posting a full travel guide shortly and I cannot wait to share my favorite spots! 

With October’s arrival, there is no doubt fall is here. This navy and pink leaf-shaped lace dress is a pretty pick for fall. The lace is beautiful and unique because of the leaf shape but also doesn’t catch or run easily. The navy collar gives this dress a polished-off look, which makes it office appropriate. Read more…
