Charming Spring :: Floral Tie Cuff Sleeves & Shorts

Happy Wednesday Y’all! Gosh, the weather in Coastal Virginia the past few days have been phenomenal! I’m remembering exactly why I love to live here, ha! I snatched up this adorable top with floral tie cuff sleeves during a big sale thinking it would be great for spring. Surprisingly enough, it’s great for work, too, which is always a great discovery. It’s a super soft cotton material and the swoon-worthy floral tie cuff sleeves are bracelet length. Plus, since it’s more form-fitting, it’s perfect for tucking into pants or skirts if you would like! I’m wearing size XXS Petite and it fits me perfectly. I also found a similar style top with an extra 40% off, making it $18! What a steal! Read more…

Heart on My Sleeve :: Heart Patch Sweater & Warm Boots

Those who know me personally can tell you I love to wear my heart on my sleeve most of the time. That’s why this heart patch sweater is perfect for me! The fabric of this sweater is unbelievably soft. It’s very stretchy and has that perfect slouchy look. You may remember I prefer sweaters with higher necklines because they can really keep the wind at bay. While this is heart patch sweater is certainly festive for Valentine’s Day, it’s perfect for the rest of winter and then for next Holiday season! It’s a great layering piece since you can wear a base layer underneath for extra warmth and then throw a cute vest over top. Read more…

Big dreams are my thing, so I’m nowhere near my peak, nor do I want to be. There is so much I want to accomplish in blogging, my career as a journalist and in life.

Winter Musthave: Merino Wool Sweater Dress

Hey Y’all! I hope this week is going well for you! Winter this year is no joke. We’ve had more than two rounds of snow and one of them a blizzard! I get lots of questions about how I stay in the winter, so I’m giving away my toasty secrets in this blog post. Cashmere and wool will be your best friends. This gray merino wool sweater dress is a new closet staple of mine. What I love about merino wool is its warming and moisture wicking capabilities. Wool traps more dead air than any other fiber out there. Dead air keeps you insulated and is a fantastic buffer against the cold. Plus, merino wool can absorb up to 30 percent of its dry weight before feeling wet. Isn’t that insane!? These are just a few reasons why I love this gray merino wool sweater dress. Read more…

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…
