This is one pink crochet dress that I wear probably once a month, I have gotten more use out of it than I anticipated! (to work, to multiple events & to parties). I am wearing a size “small” and it fits pretty comfortably. This one usually goes out of stock quickly, and then it is brought back in a similar soft color. At the moment it is also available in white with short sleeves – this is perfect since the Summer is about to start! 🙂 Yet it does not matter what color you get it in, it is a beautiful & unique dress! This outfit will keep you looking chic all day long. Thanks for reading, lots of love!
WORK STYLE: GOLDEN
Hi babes, happy monday, I wish you all got to rest! Today I am sharing a soft toned outfit for work that I repeat quite often. An all neutral outfit works fantastic during the spring time. To create the look I paired a basic pencil skirt with a nude top and a short cardigan. I have gotten so much use out of this cute little cardigan. It has a glittery / shiny color (you can shop the same exact cardigan below), making the outfit super elegant and sophisticated. Now let’s talk about the shoes – they have silver thread on the top – and match so perfectly with the skirt – incredible! Both the skirt and the shoes have an identical design. I hope that this post inspires you to create an office look that is other than the usual all black or black + white. What do you think? Hope you have a wonderful start to the week… this is the last full week of May… A reminder to make the most of each and every day!!! Thanks for reading, xox.
SHOP MY LOOK:
Work Style – All Black – Under $ 40.00!
Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a look that I often wear to work (and that I love!). This is one of those outfits that I get tons of comments not only from girls, but from guys too. Girls always want to know whether it’s a dress or a two-piece. Can you believe the top and bottom combined were less than $ 40.00 ?!?! I belong in Target’s Fan Club (if there ever was one!). I go quite often and can spend over an hour inside, …anyone else is like me?? The day that I saw this adorable top must have been the day they put it on the floor because they had it in my size. It fits perfectly and has faux-leather and lace (super cute!). My skirt was under $ 10.00. I finished the look with black pumps for a clean office look. Girls also ask me if it is a designer dress! This is just a simple & classy outfit at an fantastic price.
Thanks for reading & have a wonderful week!
Hi ladies! There are trends. And then there are timeless styles. Such is the case with one of the most flattering pieces of clothing you will ever own, The Pencil Skirt. This is the one skirt style that is an office stable for working / professional women. But you do not need to have a 9 to 5 office job to wear one, because pencil skirts look flattering at formal gatherings, and parties as well. Regardless of what you wear your pencil skirt with, you will end up with a polished, structured and sophisticated look.
Pencil skirts look best when styled with a blouse, a blazer, a crop top, or a tight turtleneck (for a sexier look!). To wear at night, pair a fitted high-waisted pencil skirt with a crop top. For an effortless stylish look, pair a pencil skirt with a tucked-in cotton tee or a slouchy sweater. I personally love how empowering they are for women! And how convenient they are for work / meetings / evening affairs, I slip it on, pick one of my long-sleeves silk shirts and I’ve got a smart & professional look in less than 5 minutes… Add classic pumps or stilettos and you are done!
This timeless style will instantly enhance your curves, slim your waist, and make you look chic. If you want to look slimmer, a black pencil skirt is your best bet. If you prefer to add the illusion of curves, choose a skirt with bold patterns. To create the hourglass figure, just add a skinny dark colored belt around your waist! It always comes down to choosing the option that works best for your own body type, and then rocking that pencil skirt! AH!… make sure that you can easily go up & down the stairs with it, as well as get out of a vehicle comfortably!

The White Blazer
Are you looking for a chic & crisp look? White blazers are not only a summer essential, they are a great alternative for work (all year round). Getting dressed for work should not be boring! A white blazer can also polish up an edgy denim to create a chic casual look. For today’s look I paired my white blazer with a textured pencil skirt and shiny gold heels. Simple, minimalistic and elegant! What do you think?
The best part about a white blazer is that it can take you from work, to an event, a happy hour, and the weekend.
How to Wear a White Blazer to Work: (1) match it with any solid color pencil skirt, (2) layer it on top of a sleeveless dress for coverage, (3) layer it on a printed dress or skirt, (4) match it on top of black, navy, grey or beige wide leg trousers (I love this option & do it a lot!)
How to Wear a White Blazer in a casual look: (1) match over a tank top & ripped denim, (2) layer over a lace dress, (3) layer over a solid colored / floral dress, (4) match it on top of a mini skirt, (5) wear over any color skinny jeans, (5) black skinny jeans + a black top
Try any of those options and you will look super fabulous. I have linked eleven different white blazers (from multiple brands and at different prices), check them out!
Look of the Day:
“Pretty in a Pink Skirt”
Hi loves! Today I am sharing an all blush pink look that makes me feel extra girly for sure! Blush is a color that it is subtle enough that you can wear it from head to toe. To create my look I color coordinated my top + bottom by tucking in a blush colored sweater into a blush toned midi-length pencil skirt. To finish the look I added a pearl necklace (a combination of two that I twisted together!). I chose nude accesories to keep the tone of the outfit down and very elegant. I love wearing outfits created with soft palettes, pastels colors are an instant outfit refresher. By the way, my satin nude heels I purchased at Macy’s, I have linked 3 adorable similar pairs. And remember that at the end of the day, it’s all about the attitude, every outfit is how you wear it! Give it a try, add pretty pink pieces into your wardrobe!
Work Wear with Banana Republic
Seriously, these Banana Republic trousers have been on repeat and repeat and repeat. I never imagined that when I purchased them! I wear them to work a whole lot, (I try to find alternatives to my all black outfits), especially on warmer days… They are super comfortable and give the outfit a sophisticated, classy & elegant look, which is my favorite. I linked the pants above (in the only color I found for this style on the website), they are called “Sloan-Fit Trousers.”
