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!).

Essentials For Fall :: Cardigan & Boots

As Labor Day arrives and the beginning of fall starts to show just a little bit, I love gathering essentials for fall. You just never know with the weather, so it’s always nice to be prepared for a crisp morning or cool evening. I’ve mentioned this previously but I love to get fall pieces during the Nordstrom Sale. My essentials for fall include a cozy cardigan with a chunky knit and a good pair of boots. The beautiful braid and knit detailing on this cardigan drew me in the moment I saw it. I’m a sucker for classic cream but it also comes in charcoal, dark hunter green, navy blue and a gorgeous rose color. This cardigan is oversized so I got size XS. It’s perfect for throwing over a dress like I am here. It’ll be so cute with jeans, a simple tee or blouse underneath and heels, too.

The Striped Transition Sweater You Need for Fall

Labor Day is a week away, which means fall’s arrival is on the way! I absolutely love summer and I’m sad to see it go. However, there are some key pieces I love to rely on to transition into fall. This striped transition sweater is the perfect way to ease into fall. The color block stripes are a fun trend from summer. Plus, you can tuck this sweater into shorts for cooler summer nights. I can easily see myself throwing this over a swimsuit after watching a sunset at the beach. Or you can wear it when you’re in chilly restaurants or grocery stores when you’re running errands. I’m wearing a size US 2, which fits like a size 0-2. This sweater is meant to fit a little boxy and oversized. It’s also perfect for layering as I like to wear an extra cashmere layer underneath to stay extra warm when it’s cold.
