Olive Cape Blazer


Hi y’all! ASOS has been killing my bank account recently and it doesn’t help that if you spend $140, you get free 2 day shipping… just take my money!!! I love finding new pieces for my wardrobe that are somewhat unique (I have yet to bump into anyone IRL that has the same piece from ASOS) and at a great price point.

I have been loving capes the past few years and when I saw this blazer, I knew I had to have it. I have been gravitating towards longer lengths in my outerwear. Something about the longer lengths make me feel part princess, part superhero and part vampire. Weirdest combo ever I know but it’s so satisfying whipping my cape around.

I shared these mules in gray leopard but of course, since I love the style I had to get it in more than one color. Surprisingly, they are very comfortable and are super affordable.

Luminous Dewy Makeup for Work


Hi y'all! If you've been watching any of my vlogs, you know I have been rocking a luminous face for quite a while. I wanted to look like either a) I got enough sleep the night before or b) I'm glowing from within. I know there are so many awesome highlighting and luminous makeup tutorials out there. Mine is a bit more on the subtle side and makes it work appropriate (always my goal). Here's how I do my luminous face routine for work:

Highlights of 2016


Hi y'all! I'm a few days away from getting back to the work grind and wanted to reflect on the past year. I'm about to get super real with y'all...

The past couple of years [2015 & 2016] I've shared my goals & aspirations for the coming year. I felt so pumped and inspired to reach a bunch of lofty goals but fell a bit short on each. This New Year, I didn't feel inspired to share a ton of resolutions and goals. I didn't have any specific ones in mind and it's probably because 2016 was a rough year. I have heard SO many people share the same sentiment and I hate to add to it but seriously. 2016... You. Sucked. Balls.

Holiday Style: Midi Skirts for Petite Ladies


Happy holidays my dear friends!! I can't believe Christmas is already upon us. I feel like this year has flown by. Is it just me or does time fly when you're older (or busier/ more productive) than before? I literally feel like busy season just ended but then realize it's right around the corner. WHYYYYY?!? Since I was behind on sharing some fun 2016 moments on my blog, I might be doing some throwback posts to share memorable parts of the year.

To make me feel better and distract me from what's to come, I thought I'd share one of my fave holiday time outfits. What I love about this outfit is that it can easily be worn to work or glammed up for a holiday party. I have been loving the midi skirt trend. It looks so chic and feminine. For a petite lady like myself, I like pairing midi skirts with nude heels to help elongate my frame. These pumps are my absolute favorite and are SO comfy. They're my go to for work (probably why I own them in 4 colors... if the shoe fits...). I can wear them all day and they stay so comfy.

I decided to buy this midi skirt in a blush nude. I was leaning towards a metallic rose gold but in terms of versatility, can't go wrong with a nice neutral. While I'm far from a minimalist, I want the majority of my wardrobe to be versatile. More wear = worth every penny (even though it's not expensive but still). I normally wear a US 6 in ASOS but I wanted the skirt to be fitted against my high waist and sized down to a US 4. It is fitted just right at the waist but roomy in the hips.

To top off the outfit, I went with a mock neck cropped sweater. I have been loving cropped tops, not to show off my joey but to tuck into high waisted anything and not have a ton of extra fabric bulking the look up. I am so particular about what touches my neck so I lean more towards mock necks rather then turtle necks. I get overheated easily even during the winter so a mock neck gives me just the right amount of warmth.
