The Spring Dress You Can Wear Anywhere

If you’re looking to shop for spring, look no further. This is the spring dress you can wear anywhere and it’s only $68. Whether you’re heading out for brunch, dinner date, even work, this dress is appropriate. While it has a v-neck it’s not too low. The fun playful feel of the knot and how the fabric moves oozes the spirit of spring. I absolutely love the yellow color, which is actually more of a sunshine yellow and less of marigold as portrayed on the site. Plus, I love how a different pair of shoes can really make the feel of this spring dress different. I’m wearing them with some of my favorite heels but a pair of fun flats or even sneakers would change the look. One aspect I love about this dress is long sleeves. They make this dress so chic and the overall length of the dress is just right. Not too long or too short. On my 5’3 frame, it hits just a few inches above my knee.

One of My Favorite Winter Trend: Wearing Velvet Flats

Velvet is one of my favorite winter fabrics and I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon. I remember when I was first introduced to velvet. I was maybe 9-years-old and standing in the workroom of a woman who makes competitive figure skating dresses. I was getting my very first custom “big girl” dress and I couldn’t be more excited! My dress was made of a rich dark purple stretch velvet, complete with rhinestones.

Sparkle :: Office Holiday Party Outfit Idea

What a whirlwind week it has been! I know with December creeping around the corner, there are holiday gatherings on almost everyone’s schedule. I know when I did a poll on Instagram, many of you wanted an office holiday party outfit idea. I’ll admit, this can be a tricky one, especially if it’s a party taking place at the office or place of work. Y’all know I’m a fan of versatile pieces and this Gal Meets Glam Nell dress and jacket is no exception. Julie Engel is such an inspiration and I’m more than happy to support her by purchasing something from her collection. This outfit makes me feel bold, confident and powerful. When I got this in the mail, I literally couldn’t wait to try it on!

My Favorite Oversized Tunic Sweater & Why I have Four!

I have a soft spot for sweaters. Next to dresses, they are my favorite clothing item. There’s something about how soft, thick and cozy there are that makes me swoon. I love when I get to pull out my sweaters from winter boxes and have them all around me as I hang them up for the season. A silhouette I’m starting to love is the oversized tunic sweater. I first got this style last year in two colors, ivory and red. This year, I am adding this mulberry color and a dusty blue to my wardrobe. This sweater comes in plenty of gorgeous shades so you’re sure to find the perfect one.

Styling a Statement Coat :: Rich Shades of Red

A statement coat is a must for the fall and winter. It’s the item you can throw over any outfit, walk outside into the crisp air and feel confident. My coat collection is one of my favorites and something I have been building for almost 10 years. This plaid statement coat is a heavy-duty piece with a classic silhouette. The woven fabric is a beautiful mix of rich reds with pinks and a little white to keep everything in balance. The notch lapels give that old-school look but the solo button closure makes this statement coat modern. I’m wearing size XXS in this jacket, which does have an oversized fit. This is handy for when you’re wearing thick sweaters or multiple layers. However, if you’re petite, you may need more alterations. The sleeves are a little long on me but I prefer longer sleeves to keep my wrists warm.
