OFFICE STYLE| HOW TO WEAR STRIPES

Admittedly, when I first saw this dress I wasn’t so wow’d.  I reached out for it due to the color-I thought it’d be a great way to introduce color into my summer work wardrobe. It wasn’t until I tried it on that I realized how well it fit my body. The dress might be a little too colorful for a traditional corporate office, but I love the idea of wearing it with a white blazer or classic cardigan. Another positive, it can also be worn in the fall with boots. This style of dress is also easy to transition to casual just by pairing with sneakers. I wore it with these gold Adidas for brunch a few weeks ago.

By the way, the dress is a lightweight ribbed sweater material perfect for spring and cooler summer days. It also coms with a detachable slip and comes in blue also.

STYLE| High-Waist Slacks + Corset

Over the weekend, after a long Saturday exploring Brooklyn, I was hiding out in the house the next day. It took all the energy  I had to pretty myself up for a birthday dinner later that evening. I initially was going to wear a dress, but I accidentally ended up smearing makeup on it. Just as well, since I realized I hadn’t shaved so pants it was.  Dinner took place at the River Cafe in Brooklyn- a formal restaurant nestled under the Brooklyn Bridge with an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline.  The menu was quite appetizing but the views took the cake.

STYLE| HOW TO WEAR LACE

I’ve never really been a big fan of lace. Probably thanks to my childhood nostalgia of lace stockings and socks-you know the kind with the ruffles around the ankle. It just always seemed so granny-like and pretentious in that southern debutante kind of way. No shade to the southern gals out there. Fast forward many decades later and I’m completely obsessed with it.

I was on my way to a surprise birthday linner (hybrid of lunch and dinner) for my older sister and decided to snap a few pics for you guys. I initially was going to wear this blouse with the skirt, but last minute, remembered this top (last worn here) and boom-perfection!

Weekend in Maurices

Since moving out of Manhattan to Brooklyn, I haven’t been able to see my girlfriends as much so I thought it would be nice for a little low-key get together at my place.  The weather was ah-mazing; a huge difference from our 90plus temps during the week. I for-goed grilling in favor of the true New York practice of take-out.  Not having to marinate, prep the grill or cook made it an even more relaxing evening. Add a bottle of wine, sparkling water and Mexican coke, the evening was on it’s way.

While sipping wine and gossiping, the main topic of discussion was my dress.  My friend thought it was a find from my Mexico trip last year. They were shocked when I told them it was from Maurices. I am a sucker for detailing and found the tassels and fringe around the border darling and so festive-perfect for a get-together.

Read more on the rest of my weekend and looks that I wore over on Maurice’s Blog here

OFFICE STYLE| FLORAL JUMPSUIT

As we get further into summer, it gets harder and harder to figure out what to wear to work. Looking professional versus keeping cool is a constant battle. When you wake up, you can’t imagine putting on layers to look professional at the office. Tell me I’m not alone in these sentiments.  The jumspuit I’m wearing is from Asos and has an open back. Most of the time, I wouldn’t pick this type of piece for work, but the open back can easily be covered with a cardigan or blazer-a necessity if your office is anything like mine, freezing.

Jumpsuits are a great option for the summer. It’s one piece and not much thought has to go into it. Depending on the cut and pattern, jumpsuits can work in any office setting. Dually, it can be worn with stilettos for a sassy night out with the girls or your spouse.

Tempted to add a jumpsuit to your wardrobe, if so, check out my selections below:

STYLE|MULTI-STRIPE DRESS

I love when the unexpected happens. On this particular day, I was under the weather but I had a birthday brunch to attend so I chose what I named my “senorita dress.” Little did I know that it would totally transform my mood. The only thing missing was a red rose on the side of my head. I literally couldn’t stop twirling and dancing. Not only is this dress flowy, the vibrancy is perfect for the summer.
