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!

How to Style A Mint Green Cardigan for Fall and Winter

Given that temperatures are dropping in the western hemisphere and winter is starting to creep up, I want to share how to style a mint green cardigan for fall and winter. Plus, Norfolk just had the Grand Illumination Parade, trust me it’s a really big and bright deal, so that means Christmas is right around the corner! Mint green is traditionally more of a spring and summer color. I remember back in 2012, pining for all things mint, whether it was a good blouse or pair of mint gingham pants (holy crap, what a throwback to an embarrassing, younger version of me!). Mint is still a great color to wear but I can understand the challenges of styling it for fall and winter.

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.

Hello Fall :: The Floral Transition Dress You Need

Happy First Monday of Fall, Y’all! While I’m very sad summer is officially over, I do love the start of a new season. I know it may still be quite warm where many of you live, so I want to talk about an easy transitional look. This is the floral transition dress you need to help ease into fall. This shirt dress has a classic silhouette with a very feminine and fun pattern. If this print looks familiar, it’s because I have silk wide-leg pants in the same print. It’s truly such a stunning print and is something you can wear for years to come. I’m wearing a size 00 here and the midi length is just perfect, especially with my heeled sandals. Plus, this dress has a huge upside: pockets! I cannot resist something with pockets.

Styling Statement Pants :: Floral Wide-Leg Silk Pants

Have y’all seen Crazy Rich Asians, yet? If you haven’t, you’re missing out and I couldn’t recommend this hilarious romantic comedy more! Plus, it was so nice to see an all-Asian cast. The reason I mention the movie is these floral wide-leg silk pants make me feel like a Crazy Rich Asian! Don’t be too concerned, for silk pants these come at an attainable price point. When I first saw these wide-leg pants online, I knew I had to have them. It’s a collaboration between J.Crew and famous wallpaper designer Abigail Borg, who is known for her quirky, hand-drawn florals. This collection has me swooning. The floral prints are simply whimsical and elegant. I actually got two pieces from this collection, these floral wide-leg silk pants and a shirt dress with pockets (blog post on this coming soon!).
