How to Wear A Short Suit & Rock It

As a working woman, I love an outfit that makes me feel powerful. This teal short suit is no exception. I’ll be the first to admit, I know this is not something that can be worn in every office or workplace. However, if you work in a space where something like this could work, I could not recommend it more. It’s a refreshing, unique twist on a classic look. Plus, since it’s different from a traditional suit, you’re sure to get plenty of compliments.

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!

My Hair-Care Routine for Sleek + Shiny Hair

You may have seen Selena Gomez and Priyanka Chopra in Pantene Pro-V’s ads with ever so shiny and glossy hair. It made me wonder if the brand had something more to offer. Not to mention, when a shampoo has close to 600 reviews and almost 5 stars, you try it. So I revisited an old favorite, yet this time it has a completely new formula, the Smooth & Sleek Shampoo with its matching conditioner and added it to my hair-care routine.
