Pink Crush :: Velvet Skirt & Lace Blouse

This is one of my favorite looks of all time, shot in one of my new favorite cities. I’m mixing together two of my favorite pieces. This pink velvet skirt is something I reach for when I want to feel confident and beautiful. It’s the perfect mix of sexy and sleek while being elegant and chic. The fabric hugs your curves without being too tight. Plus, velvet is on trend this fall, so I have no doubts you’ll be seeing this skirt more. I previously styled it with a gray sweater here. This pink velvet skirt is perfect if you dress it up for date night or out with friends. I’m wearing a size XS and it fits beautifully. For care, I recommend throwing into the washer on the handwash or delicate cycle. Use cold water and to lay flat to dry, too. Read more…

Mauve Super Soft Sweater Dress

I swear by sweater dresses in the fall and especially during winter. I think there’s something so feminine about wearing a sweater dress with boots. This mauve sweater dress with balloon sleeves is such a stunner. I love the high neck because you can layer cashmere tanks underneath for extra warmth. Plus, this sweater dress is super soft since it’s mostly acrylic fabric. The shift silhouette makes this dress easy and effortless to style. Just throw it on with booties or boots and you are good to go! I cannot recommend this dress enough, especially as temperatures start to dip. I’m wearing a size US 2 and this dress has a slightly oversized feel to it. I am thinking about maybe hemming it up an inch or two. That way I can wear it with over the knee boots! However, it’s also fine as it.  Read more…

A Little Fancy :: Mint Frill Sleeve Embellished Dress

Mint is a color I easily fall for. During college, I had this obsession with the color and owned mint everything. I have since scaled back but still adore it. If you are looking for something a little fancy, let it be this mint frill sleeve embellished dress. The completely embellished neckline is extremely well done and looks lovely. Also, the stones sparkle just right, making this an elegant look for any cocktail party or fancy function. Y’all know I love a statement sleeve and these frill sleeves are just perfect. They aren’t too big, while having the cutest ruffle detail. Plus, since the sleeves are three-quarter-length, they won’t get in your way regardless of whether you’re eating or trying to shake hands. That’s always a huge plus in my book, especially if I’m at an event and I want to network and meet new people!  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…

Mondays in Blue :: Polka Dot Blouse & Stretch Suede Skirt from Lulus

Happy Monday y’all! Boy, was it nice to have some time to myself this past weekend! Thanks to Johnny, I am full force into the Defenders on Netflix. So full force, in fact, I finished the whole show, ha! Weekends are usually a time for me to work on my blog and get set for the week ahead. However, we all need to unwind and “do nothing” sometimes and I did just that. 

I enjoy starting off the week in a powerful outfit. While I usually wear dresses, sometimes I enjoy mixing it up. I usually turn to Lulu’s for trendy clothes, but they have quite a few pieces you can wear to work and look young and fresh. This blue polka dot blouse is fun and flirty with the tie neckline, but in a conservative silhouette. I love the polka dot print and light fabric, which is perfect for summer but keeps the chill off your arms in cold offices. I’m styling it with an ultra soft light beige suede skirt. Pencil skirts aren’t always the stretchiest, but this one is stretchier than some of my workout clothes. Plus, it fits like a glove and the hem is an elegant length. For the weekend, this blue polka dot blouse would be great with white jeans or shorts. Read more…
