Individuality


I'm a firm believer that just because you may work in the corporate world, you still can express your individuality. Whether it's through your clothes, makeup, hair or even more non-physical ways like continuously being positive & optimistic, speaking only good things about others or keeping your promise when you say you'll do something. But since my blog post wouldn't be much without some photos, I'm choosing to share how I express myself through my style :) Some people may have differing views. Some people may say "I'm not trying to impress anyone" in an effort to passive aggressively put you down for maybe dressing up more than others. But as long as you're owning your style, owning yourself and not hurting anyone else, then who even cares! #randomthoughtoftheday

I'm a lover of anything blush & stripes. This outfit combo is so girlie yet conservative enough for the office. I've had this skirt for AGES and it's been a staple in my wardrobe. ModCloth keeps it in stock pretty much at all times so it's safe to say it can be a staple for you too! Another staple are my heels, I currently own 4 colors and may/may not be getting more (leaning heavily on the may....). If it ain't broke...

The Obsession Continues: Rebecca Minkoff Chevron Love Crossbody


If you don't know yet, I am IN LOVE with the Love Crossbody collection. I now own four of them and my newest addition, the chevron version in vintage pink, I fell in love with the moment I saw it. Vintage pink is the closest blush shade I've seen her come out with and paired with the silver hardware + chevron quilting..... ohhhhhhh chile!!! Had to have it!!!

What I didn't realize is the chevron quilting is made of suede-like material while the rest is the normal leather. The suede sheds like CRAY so take a lint roller to it before your first wear, otherwise, you'll have lovely little specks all over you (my shorts were covered with it in the beginning). Because of the suede, it's a lot more prone to scratching and is super pliable. I normally wear my Love Crossbody like this but it dimpled at the top.... so sad. Overall though, I love it and so happy to have her in my collection.

I have been looking for a pair of tall gladiator sandals and after much trial and error (or shipping back and forth) I found a pair that I love. I plan on getting more colors :) If you're like me and have a meatier calf, I recommend finding lace up gladiator sandals. I'm able to customize the width and still get the gladiator effect. It also helps that lace up anything is on trend, functional and stylish!

SheIn Lightweight Trench


I purchased this lightweight trench from SheIn earlier in the year. Since Texas barely ever gets cold, I look for lightweight fabrics that I can layer, that way I get way more wear throughout the seasons (summer 80% of the year lol). My experience with SheIn has been 50/50. Some pieces I have loved, others were a total waste.... this trench definitely falls into the love category :)

I fell in love with these Kristin Cavallari Laurel booties but after reading reviews, I was worried I wouldn't be able to fit my foot into the opening. I originally purchased the Liam booties since they have a zipper but returned them because the zipper made SOOOO much noise walking around. Now that I have the Laurel booties, I have had no problem fitting my foot through the opening and I feel like my foot is in between normal and wide. They are pretty comfortable too and look great on.

Current Work Bag: Teddy Blake Caty Stampatto




I have been on the search for a gray handbag and was thrilled when Teddy Blake offered to send a bag for me to review. I loved the design of the Caty Stampatto since it is reminiscent of my ultimate dream bag (one day). I have an entire video sharing my thoughts on her including what's in my work bag. I brought her on a recent business trip to Atlanta and she was the perfect traveling companion :)

I picked up this skirt during the July 4th sale from LOFT (60% off y'all) and it fits like a glove. I love the strips and mosaic print. I purchased it in the regular inseam because I have been loving longer pencil skirt lengths. Plus it fits right into the rest of my wardrobe. Blush, gray and stripes!!
