January Edition of Work Week Chic

Hey guys!! I love winters in Florida because it’s the one time I can wear fabulous winter pieces such as blazers, cute long sleeve shirts, boots, and some other pieces! I really love the pieces that I got a chance to wear recently to work for winter. Not only were they fabulous they were extremely comfy.

Anyone that knows me knows I am a bit of a girlie girl and I love adding a little bit of pizazz to my work wear and to jazz up my work week/ day.

Top: Ralph Lauren. I love a good button down. I bought this a few years back from Macy’s and I love how this top is wrinkle free so it’s a great for pairing with different pieces and it’s pink and is one of my favorite colors so yay!

Skirt: Choies.com I just love this skirt because you can dress it up or down and it’s perfect for any occasion whether for a formal occasion or to add a layer of fun to work wear. I love iridescents and I love pops of color.

Pumps: Kate Spade. I loved these shoes the minute I got them. They are pink glitter and are so much fun to pair with jeans or a dressy top and add a dash of fabulousness to every thing you pair it with.

Jewelry: Kate Spade aurora borealis studs which are my most absolute faves. Bracelets are a mix of Alex and Ani and Bourbon and Boweties.

Top: H&M from about 7 years ago. I love this blazer because it’s so structured, functional, and professional looking. And it’s two toned! Yessss for color blocking!

Skirt: Choies.com I love this skirt because I love a pop of color and spices up your neutrals and earth tones if you choose to wear them with a more subdued tones.

Boots: Ralph Lauren. I love these boots because even though they are a riding style boot they go perfectly with fitted pants, pencil skirts, and jeans and they easily add a touch of flair to whatever you pair them with.

What are some of your favorite winter wear items? What pieces make you feel amazing, confident, and ready to conquer your work day/week? What’s your go to staples during the winter that liven up your wardrobe in the colder months? Leave me a comment below! I love to hear from you!

OOTD: All dolled up for church or a Derby

Happy Sunday! Today was a good day and was super refreshing for my soul and spirit. I thoroughly enjoyed church today! Even before I got there I was just in a good place. I kind of put this outfit together this morning in a crunch but I think it has a fun, sophisticated flair to it and it made me feel like I was ready for the Kentucky Derby.

There’s nothing quite like dressing up for any occasion that just makes any woman feel absolutely amazing!

Anyway to the nitty gritty!

Floppy Black Hat with bow in back: Preston and York (I got it from a Dillard’s in Alabama at least 5 or 6 years ago but I have paired it with so many things and I just love any type of piece that allows me to do such)

Blue striped assymetrical dress: Vince Camuto (Dillard’s in Sanford about 4-5 years ago. I love this dress because I find that it’s perfect for any occasion. I can pair this with a blazer or cardigan for work or church and when I want more of a sassy look I can lose the blazer or cardigan and pair with some cute sandals or heels and it’s a perfect day-to-night piece)

Gray ruched pumps: Jessica Simpson (I absolutely love these pumps, these are truly transitional event pumps in that I can wear pretty much anywhere)

Blue blazer with pin striped sleeves: New York and Co (I honestly have had this blazer for a good little while and I just love how comfy and cute it is and how it dresses up the simplest things like a pair of jeans and a top or a dress and it’s such a soft feel)

What are some of your favorite things to wear to your place of worship? What makes you feel good on a Sunday? Feel free to comment, I would love to hear from you!

 

 

 

OOTD: Flowy skirts and structured tops

You know how you have a crazy week but you still have joy? It’s been one of those weeks for me but I can honestly say beyond just internal joy  and peace it’s the little things that have really made me sing this week. Those things include flowy skirts and structured tops. Both of these OOTDs are from earlier this week but I love how mixing colors and prints just puts you in a good place (plus the right cup of coffee and productivity) Eeek! I over love a good mix of patterns or prints with bold colors or fun shoes. Oh and ya’ll please excuse my mirror, it needs a cleaning but it’s been THAT kind of week. LOL.

Details

Blue stripe button down: Touch Dolls boutique { Touchdolls.com}  The fit is great and runs a little roomy and I ordered some other items from there that I absolutely am in LOVE with.

Red High Waist Skater Skirt: Choies.com (I love this skirt because it’s so versatile and I can wear this to work,  church, and pretty much anywhere else and can be dressed up or down and has the right amount of sophistication but comfort) I commonly look for pieces that go well with multiple things or can give me different looks so I am not having to update my wardrobe all the time. Did I mention it has pockets? Yay!

Gray ruched pumps: Jessica Simpson (DSW I think #recoveringshopaholicprobs) The detailing in these shoes is EVERYTHING! I love that they have a great height (just about 3 1/2 inches I believe) to give me that extra boost of confidence for anything I face during my day and they are just subtle enough to be worn in the office but dressed up for after work festivities.

Red fitted turtleneck body con top: Meow and Barks Boutique  This top just gives any outfit or pairing the perfect pop of color and splash of fun that any fashionista is always searching for.

White contrast polka dot print maxi skirt: Choies.com I probably stalked (YES STALKED) this skirt for a good little while before I actually caved in and bought it. What I really love about this skirt, is that as the wearer it gives you such a regal feel especially when you dress it up with your favorite boots or pumps. And it truly is perfect for any occasion. Unless that occasion involves running or vigorous running. LOL.

You can probably barely see the ends of my boots peeking out (we caught a few days of cold weather so I got super excited and decided to bust out my boots) so I will save my review and details of them until a later date where you can get a better look.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors, prints, etc. and let your fashionista flag fly loud and proud! Create a style all your own and strut your stuff with confidence!

Slaying your day to night wear: the sassy career girl’s guide to wardrobe versatility

It happens to EVERY ONE OF US. We have a super packed schedule and want to figure out how to transition from a long day at work to a fun night of play. But this is the feeling we get when we stand in front of our closet.

BUT WAIT!

There’s so much potential within that closet,  you just have to be creative with it and figure out HOW to make that transition from day to night.

  1. Switch up those shoes

Flats or less flashy pumps are perfectly fine for an office environment but for cocktail hour, girls night, or quick prep for date night with boo add a little sparkle to your feet and you’ll be sure to stand out and make an impression on whoever you run into and add a little pop of fun to your evening festivities.

2. Lose the more structured pieces

Blazers and suit coats are great for making a bold statement in the office  and showing your bossy side. If you want to wear a blazer in your night activities, make a bold statement with a pop of color in your blazer in neons or bolds to add a bit of fashionable flair and pizazz.

3. Add in your beautiful accessories

That poppin’ clutch you’ve been dying to wear? Those new bangles with the extra shimmer and shine? That statement necklace or ring? All amazing pieces  to pair with your favorite fitted dress or skinny jeans and stand out like the diva you are!

4. Own your look with confidence and play around with different make up looks

If you have a purple, orange, red or similar bold hues don’t be afraid to bring it out especially at night. Maybe you really want to play up your eyes? Find a smoky eye combo that works for you or dust on your favorite shadow, throw on a bit of mascara, line your eyes, do what feels right for you! The most important thing is that you have fun, you make  a great impression, and you look and feel great while doing it!
