Minty Tweed Easter

Easter brings me memories of my mom dressing me in a pink poofy dress with a little hat for church on Easter Sunday. I guess I don't steer too far from how my momma dressed me because I still love pastels and dressing up for Easter! I also thought it was the perfect outfit to enter for the T+J Designs Pastel Challenge! Hope you like it!

Spring Business Attire

After working in the corporate world for so long, it is easy for me to fall into the usual dark color outfit routine. With my love for bright outfits during my off-time, I decided to put an effort into infusing some color into my professional attire.

The huge misconception about business attire is that it is pricey, but with the exception of a few key pieces (i.e. business suit) most of my work clothes are from budget-friendly places. Case and point: What I wore to work yesterday!

This skirt from Forever 21 passes my "appropriate for work" test because it has a hidden zipper in the back, the material is thick and since I got this skirt a size bigger it is not too short or tight. I offset the color of the skirt with a black top, blazer and simple black pumps, and kept the jewelry to a minimum (statement necklaces and "Arm Parties" usually stay at home because of all of the typing and meetings). All in all simpler is better in the work place, but a pop of color can take an office outfit from boring to cheery!

3 Trends to Try this Spring

Hello Spring!! With Spring knocking on our door and the San Diego sun already out at play, it’s time to start dabbling into Spring Trends! This season is not only about the usual pastels and florals, but some fun new (or recycled) ones: the short suit, black and white, and clear accessories. The best part about these trends- they are daring, yet can be wearable!

The Short Suit
The short suit is a chic and playful take on the office outfit and menswear. You can pick from a neutral to a bold colored suit or you can take it to the next level by picking up a patterned short suit which is also very trendy this spring. Whatever short suit you decide to wear this season just make sure 1) you have fun with it and 2) it fits well.

February Outfit Recap

TGIF! It feels like just yesterday I was just doing my January Recap, but a las ladies (and gents, if any read my blog) March has arrived!

On a personal note, I got promoted at work! It was a total surprise but felt good to get acknowledged for my work. It reminds me of one of my all-time favorite quotes "when you do your best, people notice" ~Oprah.

Looking back at the February outfits, you can tell I'm addicted to 1) my white blazer 2) my black skinnies 3) my Tory Burch Cuff and the neon yellow peplum is slowly creeping up on the list! These are my go-to pieces at the moment because of their versatility and comfort.
See the full posts here:
