Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, ya’ll! *clinks mimosa glasses πŸ₯‚

So we’ve all had those mornings where we’re running – nonstop – to do the hair, sweep on some makeup & toss on an above-average outfit for the day. This is often a challenge, especially when you’re racing the clock, & oftentimes traffic, e.g. every Monday morning…

No matter your style, budget or profession, with the right set of wardrobe skills there’s no reason to not look your best & slay the day away!

Read a few quick & simple tips below:

A black everything. β¬›οΈ

I feel like I say this in most of my posts, but black is a closet staple. It’s always a safe bet (no matter the dress code) & it’s tough to mess it up. Pair an all black outfit with a statement necklace & you’re golden!

Wardrobe staples are key.

Keep your favorite tops, sweaters and jeans on rotation. Creating a “uniform” of sorts will save time & money. Seriously.

Offset makeup from outfit.

Don’t pair dramatic makeup with an over-the-top outfit, as it screams “it took me hours to get ready.” If you wear bold makeup, pair it with a more classic and simple look. I recommend checking out Tarte’s products, especially the Tartiest Matte Lip Paint! πŸ’„

Fashion trend: half-tuck.

Casual + effortless βœ”οΈ (this looks fab with jeans & dress pants)

Killer heels.

Style Saturday: My Closet

Oh my lanta, it’s the freakin’ weekend! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‰ BUT it’s 24 degrees, which calls for major sweater/blanket sweater weather. Can we actually survive 6 more weeks of this?! ❄️
So despite the chilly winter weather, my closet comes to the rescue! 

Staples are key.
I’m all about staying warm, comfy & fashionable. With that, I stick with staples. Staples & neutrals. Mixing the two together can easily make wild and different outfits that you can wear time & time again! And I’m all about the sweaters: long, short, bulky & light. 

Now, let’s talk blanket scarves. They can be worn as a scarf while outside or even as an accessory! And you can twist and fold them so many different ways. Like hello, LOVE!! Even with blanket scarves, I try to pick neutral colors that can be worn with all different outfits!

Ponchos are fab. They add warmth & style to any look. Black, grey & cream are my favorite colors: prime for pairing statement jewelry. ✨

Blanket scarves, ponchos & hats… OH MY!
Side note: this gorgeous wardrobe saved my wardrobe, curtsey of a dear friend of mine. I recommend a wardrobe if your tight on space or are looking for a statement piece to utilize. 

So what’s in your wardrobe?! What pieces do you stay warm with? Let’s hear!!

Until next time, Xx

Office Chic

Hi, hi all! My… I feel like I say this (literally) every time, but I can’t stand how I never find time to blog. It was one of my August intentions to work on creating time… But hey, it’s not quite mid-August yet. πŸ˜‰

Along with setting aside time, I’ve moved into my new apartment (pics in my next post on decor) and started a new job– Eeekk! So many new chapters and fresh beginnings– I’m already loving it! 🌸✨

With that being said, I needed to work on morphing my wardrobe to fit a more business casual/business formal look. I’ve been so use to wearing jeans everyday and I knew this would be quite the transition! Definitely in a good way though. πŸ‘—πŸ‘ 

I’m a girl who loves clothes. Sometimes it’s tough to control my obsession, especially working part-time at my fav boutique, but clothing and accessories are my outlet of expression. So I have as much fun with it as I want!

Friyayyy office outfit

I finished my first week at my new job with a fun tri-colored skirt, classic white blouse, jean jacket and low-heeled nude pumps with a clear-jeweled statement necklace. A little bit of pattern mixed with some classic pieces goes a long way! 

What are some of your favorite office chic outfits?!

Until next time, Xx
