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…

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…
