How To Dress Cute At Work

So, this title may not be ground breaking, but hey...it's something we all ponder right? Like, every.single.day. 

Personally, I don't love buying work clothes. That's why I love when I can find piece that work well for work and play. Enter this lace pencil skirt.


This Greylin skirt comes from an LA designer who clearly has an eye for abstract textiles, and knows just how to combine everyday classics with bold patterns.I just love how the striped, lace overlay hangs over the gray skirt. Also, it fits like a dream.

By the way, you know how I'm all about stocking up on pieces that I love...this cami comes in multiple colors and doesn't break the bank at a mere $30.

My one and only tip for dressing cute at work, is wearing clothes that look professional, but look just as great for date night, too. What's are some of your work-wear tips and tricks?

Blogger Nation: Wayf Shirtdress



If you are looking for the perfect piece to transition from summer to fall, look no further than this Wayf shirtdress. I know you may not be wanting to talk fall yet, but hey...it is the last day of August, so let's just keep it real with ourselves and mother nature, and embrace the season to come. 

Personally, I love fall. I'm really into layering, and fall just begs for us to channel our inner Mary-Kate's and throw on every yummy layer in the closet. This week, we're back with our Blogger Nation series, and sharing non other than fall trends.

This collab is a little different than the others we've done, because we are all styling the same piece. I just love how we all styled our shirtdress so differently - even though four of us picked the same shade! This is exactly what I was envisioning when I created this series. 

In case you don't know the scoop, Blogger Nation is comprised of six incredible women, with amazing style (ALL so different from one another), and stationed all over the country. We join forces leading into each season, to share different trends. Sometime we share the same trend, other times we just share what works for us, for whatever season it is.

Now, back to this shirtdress. It works so well for day-to-night or work-to-play, and is an essential piece to take you into fall. For those of you who like more shape in your dresses, you can pull it tight at the waist with a belt (like some of my fellow #FBloggerNation babes did). It works so well with strappy sandals, mules, or even boots and booties.

Stay tuned because we have six more sessions in our fall series. Lots of good stuff in store.

Distressed Denim

Happy FriYAY! Gotta keep it short and sweet today as we had a late night at a Broadway show in Denver and I didn't have time to prep this post until this morning (and I have to be somewhere in an hour!) #justkeepinginreal


One thing I can never get enough of is distressed denim. Lately I've been really loving a brand call Blank Denim (last seen here). Not only do they have the cutest styles, but they are super comfy and at a price that won't blow your budget.

Beauty Review: glo minerals Cream Glaze Lip Crayons

Earlier in the year I was introduced to glo-minerals, and life has never been the same. No for real though, I was never really a lipstick kind of gal until I met the suede matte stick. Since then, I'm a lipstick loving fool and can't get enough of glo! This time, I'm test driving their new cream glaze lip crayons.

Unlike the suede matte stick, the cream glaze crayon comes with a high shine color and luxurious cream finish.
 Praline - neutral color for everyday wear. 
 Heirloom - a neutral shade, with a pop of plum color. 
 Mimosa - think Barbie girl!
Bloom - a bold fuchsia color, perfect for any season

In keeping with glo fashion, the color is rich and actually stains yours lips (translation: lasting power!). Praline is definitely my every day color, but the other ones are so fun to add a pop of color to any outfit.

Something I'm also crazy about are their matte shadows. I've been dreaming of a good matte shadow for a while now, on a mission to find a more mature look and to steer clear of sparkles. Unfortunately, I've previously found that when a brand removes the glitter, they  equally compromise on the pigmentation of the color. Luckily, glo has created a shadow that gives the perfect crease-free, and highly pigmented matte coverage.

I'm wearing Vintage, Coy and Dove, which combined create the perfect sunset on your lids. I lined my eyes with Graphite, to give them more of a pop. Like the lip crayons, the coverage on these shadows cannot be beat!

Olive Green Tunic

If this top looks familiar, it's because I've posted it several times...in several different colors. (3 to be exact) I just couldn't resist! When I find something I like love, I want to wear it over and over again. It bodes well for minimizing wear-and-tear (and steering clear of fashion faux pas) when you can wear that piece time and time again in multiple colors. 


I hope you all had a great weekend! Did you see I got to meet Christine Andrew (aka Hello Fashion Blog). #dreamcometrue
