As many of you know, I don’t solely run this blog, but I also have a career in higher education. With that being said, many of the looks featured on here are outfits that I wear to work (I often take my blog pictures on my lunch break).  Although I love trendy pieces and pair them with my looks from time to time, there’s something to be said for the classics (white crisp button-down, pencil skirts, etc).  I tend to go classic with my accessories especially my watches.

My Daniel Wellington rose gold and black watch fit the bill, not only is it classic with the dark leather band and round face, it adds a little trend with the rose gold accents.  Not to mention, it’s totally unisex and you can pick which strap(s) you want it with.  With Christmas around the corner, this is a perfect gift for the woman or man in your life.  If you’re a late bird like me, order by December 21st and you will get the watch just in time for Christmas or Hannukah (I celebrate both).

‘Tis the season to party-Holiday Party that is. Getting dressed up for your family and friends shin-dig is one thing, but what about the office holiday party? What if you’re not one for sequins and furs? Or do you ask yourself questions like, can I get away with this from 9-5 and afterwards? Is it too cold to go bare-legged?  Who would’ve thought that there were so many uncertainties that come with dressing the part?! Fear not, I’ve got you! In collaboration with Old Navy, I’m sharing three looks for three different party environments.


If you’re lucky enough to work at an establishment that actually goes super fancy for their holiday parties, I’m jealous. I love nothing more than to wear a to-the-floor gown. However, in real life and for most of us, office holiday parties are often right at 5pm (if not earlier), so you’d need to wear something you wouldn’t mind sitting in all day long. Cue the pants suit. How luxe is this velvet blazer and pant?! Paired with a velvet camisole, it has an air of sophistication while being party ready. Since the weather has taken a turn for the cold, velvet fabrics work perfectly to keep you warm while being uber chic.

P.S. Since it is the holidays, don’t forget to go for glam in a chic fur coat. You get warmth & style simultaneously. Asos, has a great variety of coats, but being the uber feminine person I am, I always go with their faux fur pieces. They’re budget friendly and oh so cute! They sell out quick, so don’t delay!

Evening Holiday Party

So your holiday party isn’t during the work day, but starts later in the evening. It’s not super fancy, but you have a little more give as to the selections you can wear.  Cue the jumpsuit. I love jumpsuits year round and I fell head over heels over this foil beauty. The fabric is like a mix of foiled brocade accents. I paired it with a crop faux fur jacket for even more flair and don’t forget the red lip.

Casual Holiday Party

So you’ve decided–sequins will not be making an appearance this year, but you still want to look festive but comfortable. Cue party pants! Old Navy’s pixie pants (straight size), this holiday season, comes in a statement heavy gold brocade print.  I LOVE these pants. Naturally, I’d pair them with stilettos, but since I wanted to show how easy it is to dress them down, I opted for sneakers instead. The Cheers graphic t-shirt helped further establish the casual aesthetic while simultaneously telling everyone what you’re there to do-just saying! So, relax–have a glass of champagne and take tons of pics, ya’ know for the ‘gram.

I had such a blast styling these Old Navy pieces. I love the versatility of the velvet pants and blazer and the eye catching effect of the brocade party pants. Which ever kind of party you’re attending, you’re sure to be a hit in your Old Navy pieces.

Now, tell me, which one(s) your fave?

Wear A Slip Dress To The Party This Holiday Season

With Thanksgiving over, soon will begin the season of holiday parties. Ladies, this is our annual opportunity to justify an abundance of sequins, tutus and all things glam, which I will feature soon. But, I’m starting with a more simple look that is not only comfortable, but truly can be pulled off by women of all sizes-the slip dress.

Holiday Gift Guide With

This post was sponsored by I was paid for this post and received jewelry pieces as compensation.

Um, two things-Thanksgiving is in a few weeks and Christmas is next month! Seriously, weren’t we just celebrating Labor Day and now it’s nearly holiday season! I’m guilty as the next person when it comes to making that last minute dash to the mall so I vowed to myself last year that I would not procrastinate and actually start Christmas shopping early. But let’s face it, gift-giving is hard! But I’m committed to not just helping myself, but you guys too with help from


It will soon be the beginning of my all time favorite holiday season – the season of food indulgence and gift giving. has sparkling gifts for everyone on your list-male or female, young and old!  They’re a great source to shop for accessory pieces from gemstones to fine jewelry. Jewelry is a type of gift that holds such a great punch in the smallest form.  Today I’m sharing three pieces in different budgets which fall in three different categories.


Perusing, my eyes get extra sparkly just looking at all the gorgeous necklace options they have to offer. My mother loves white gold jewelry so I was drawn to this beautiful Moissanite Fire™ pendant and necklace. I envision her wearing it with a dress for Thanksgiving and Christmas while it’s versatile enough to wear casually. While an investment of sorts, the style is timeless and I can’t wait to see her face light up when she opens it!

Double Dose of Buffalo Print

As soon as I saw this jacket (which is currently 40% off!!!), I knew I had to get it. The big buffalo print in a jacket form oppose to a button down wasn’t on my must-have  list, but certainly made it into my wardrobe. A couple of weeks later, while walking through the store, I spotted the same print in skirt form but in a smaller pattern. So, I thought, why not pair the two together?!
