Cold Weather Chic :: Velvet Pants for the Desk to Dinner

I hardly ever wear pants to work, but these navy velvet pants are making me rethink that. It’s no surprise velvet is still living out its moment. I love the lean silhouette of how these velvet pants are cut. There are off-seam pockets, which is a must-have for me. Plus, the way the pants are tailored looks and feels custom. I appreciate the contoured waistband, which helps with fit. I’m wearing a size 00 Petite and it actually runs just a dash big on me. Hence, my belt, which is also big for me, ha! There’s a little bit of smoke and mirrors going on here. Don’t worry, I plan on getting the belt fixed! I’m clearly having some petite girl struggles. While I’d normally consider an alternation job, I’m going to leave these pants alone since they aren’t that big on me. Read more…

Shades of Gray for Work :: Check Midi Dress & Coat

I love a good check pattern in the fall and winter. I’m teaming up with River Island to bring you this chic work outfit perfect for chilly days. This gray check midi dress has a conservative cut with its high neckline. However, the asymmetrical frill detailing in the front gives this dress a twist and modern look. In the winter, I love to layer, so high neck pieces such as this check midi dress are perfect. I have cashmere shells that keep me warm and try to wear them with everything. This dress is a lovely jersey fabric with more of a bodycon fit. I recommend sizing up if you are between sizes. I’m wearing a US 2, which skims over my body. .. Read more…

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…

Southern Style for Fall :: Blue Meadow Vines Blouse

When it comes to blouses for work, I love soft fabrics I can easily manipulate. That way I can weather them over pants or tuck them into skirts without an issue. This blue meadow vines blouse is perfect for fall. The lace yoke neckline is an instant eyecatcher. Plus, I love how it extends to the shoulders, too. This blouse is lightweight, so you can wear it on its own, or underneath blazers or cardigans if it’s chilly. I always have this problem at work, so I love how chic it looks underneath layers. The vine print is sweet and southern, yet sophisticated enough for the office. I’m wearing a size 0 and it fits well while also being easy to take on and off for a blouse without stretch. I’m styling it casually here with leggings and booties.  Read more…

Mondays in Of Mercer :: Beacon Dress with Pockets

Happy Monday Y’all! I hope my friends who live in and near the Texas Gulf Coast are doing okay. I know so many areas are flooded and the devastation is horrible. That’s something I’m unfortunately a little too familiar with living and reporting in Coastal Virginia. A few Norfolk-based helicopter squadrons are heading toward Houston and I know they will help save lives.

To kick off the work week, I’m sharing this printed work dress with pockets by Of Mercer. This is a great transitional piece for the office as summer starts to wind down. This stretch fabric is incredibly soft and feels like a comfy sweatshirt. Now, who doesn’t like that in a dress we wear to work for at least eight hours? Plus, this is ideal for me as a reporter when I’m out in the field. However, this dress is also great for those who need to travel for work and look professional while being comfortable.  Read more…
