Hustle :: The Power Within and How I Style My Hair

I’m a big believer we all have something to offer this world. We all have to know our value and should bring that to each day. T3 Micro asked me to be part of their Power Within Campaign and I was honored to say yes! This campaign is about sharing our unique story and experiences defining who we are. They asked me what’s my “Empoword”, aka what ignites my inner spirit and inspires me to feel confident. The word empowering me most is hustle.

For as long as I can remember, my parents taught me the best thing I can do is work hard, really really hard. Not only did they teach me this, they lived it. My whole family immigrated to the U.S. from Communist Vietnam. My Dad, a former South Vietnamese soldier was in a concentration camp. When they arrived in Texas, they immediately started working. My Dad worked at 7-Eleven overnight while attending college. My Mom worked as a tailor at the Crescent Hotel while also going to school. They both raised three kids while doing this. When my Dad was able to get a better job, his 7-Eleven had to hire seven people to replace just him. Now that is hustling. You cannot control how much raw talent you have or your abilities, but you certainly can work extremely hard to make up for it. 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…

Floral Work Dress :: Jefferson Memorial

Happy Monday everyone! As many of you may know, I wear dresses 90 percent of the time at work. They are easy, low maintenance and I don’t have to worry about mixing and matching tops and bottoms. I usually wear solids, but this floral work dress from Of Mercer is a stunner. The reason I think this dress is particularly TV friendly is the print isn’t too small. It’s not overly distracting or can “move” like thin stripes. When it comes to work dresses, I like conservative silhouettes with unique details. Since I rarely really know what story I’ll be reporting on, I prefer to air on the safe side in case I’m assigned something very serious. While this floral print is fresh, it isn’t overly bright or cheery, so it’s perfect for the office. Read more…
