Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party

Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party: Featuring a midi-length wine velvet pephem dress and gold chrome pumps

So I love going to my office’s holiday party. It’s pretty much all of my favorite things–dressing up, free food, free drinks, and dancing! However, dressing for the office holiday party isn’t always easy. My first year, I spent weeks scouring the internet and local stores for the perfect dress. I didn’t want to be overdressed and stand out in a bad way, but being under-dressed is right up there with spiders and two-headed animal crackers on my List of Things I Hate. I felt like my only option was to get it right the first time. read more

With a Cherry on Top: Featuring a cherry red v-neck sweater, a plaid pencil mini skirt and over the knee boots

In case you’ve been underground the last few months, the color dominating fall is cherry red. If you read my previous post on fall trends according to your zodiac sign, you know that this color was all over the Fall/Winter ’17 runways, and I’m loving it.

Going to Jamaica started out as an innocent suggestion from my boyfriend, but once the idea was there, it locked in. I’d officially been biten by the travel bug. read more


MisManaging My Stress in the New Fall Season

(Mis)Managing My Stress in the New Fall Season: Featuring a psychedelic slip dress and patent black ankle boots

Although you’d barely notice by going outside, the seasons have officially changed. September 21st was the first day of fall, and it was also about 85°F here. The change was subtle. For me, a seasonal allergy sufferer, I slowly began waking up with a stuffy nose and sneezing fits. Though the sun stayed strong, the humidity in the city dropped. I even started getting sick of my summer clothes. The shift was occurring even while it looked like everything was staying the same. read more


Happy Birthday! 3 Things I Learned from Starting a Style Blog

Happy Birthday! 3 Things I Learned from Starting a Style Blog

A year ago, I decided to start a style blog. It started out as a fleeting idea–I had taken a picture of my outfit for a happy hour, and I felt bad uploading yet another outfit picture to my instagram. I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be great if I could share this only with the people who were interested in seeing my outfits?” read more
