Tulip Sleeves & Floral Lace

I love a good pencil skirt for work – it makes me feel like a total #bosswoman. I especially love when it has delicate lace detailing, making it all the more feminine yet powerful. I wore this skirt on my first day at work, and I still reach for it on days I need extra […]

Versace Palazzo Empire – Review

Happy Friday! It’s been a week since I received this beauty in the mail, and I figured it was enough time for me to give you my honest opinion on the Versace Palazzo Empire tote. If you’ve read this post, you’ll know that I was lucky enough to win this bag! So here are my […]

Styling the LBD 2 Ways – Collab

Happy Monday! I love a good tailored dress for work, but sometimes I just want to wear a comfy T-shirt dress and call it a day. Well, today was one of those days, so I had to tailor it myself by adding a waist belt. I bought it earlier this year after finally finding one […]

Swayed by Suede

I love usingΒ fun puns for my blog post titles, so I was pur-suede-d to come up with oneΒ for this outfit too πŸ˜› (somebody slap me) I’ve been really into suede pieces lately, and I feel like this jacket and shoe combo from Zara are perfect for the Spring. Coincidentally, this gingham dress is also from […]

Loungewear Inspired

Loungewear has been a huge trend for the past two seasons, and I wanted to incorporate it into work wear, particularly on a sleepy Monday morning. I like the subtle black stripe on this shirt from Banana Republic and decided to pair it with my black wide leg trousers – which are just as comfy […]

The Perfect Spring Jacket

I did it you guys – I bought the jacket! I’d been eyeing this faux suede beauty from Zara for a while now, and I like to justify unreasonable cravings during the month of March by calling it my “birthday month” (lame excuse #1). In my defense, Austin was getting slightly chilly (lowΒ 70s…and maybe even […]

Decadent Embroidery

Happy Monday! I absolutely love a good white blouse and can’t help myself when I spot one while shopping. This blouse stood out to me as I was shopping online one night and I have to say – it was a great choice. I love the embroidery on the blouse, and like that it continues […]

Day Trip: New Braunfels & Gruene

Last weekend I went on a roadtrip to New Braunfels – a small town an hour’s drive from Austin. It was the perfect pre-birthday getaway! The weather was perfect and the food was even better in New Braunfels’ top restaurant – Huisache Grill. We then strolled through some cute vintage and antique stores littered across […]

24!

Yesterday I turned 24 years old! πŸ˜€ I’ve never been a big birthday person, but this time I decided to celebrate with some of my closest friends in Austin. I went on a roadtrip to New Braunfels and Gruene on Saturday (watch out for my travel post this week) and had a lot of great […]

Jogging Into the Weekend

I love my black, white and grey outfits, but I’m trying to dress more appropriately for the Spring with these blush pink joggers! I love how they are comfortable and easy to throw on, while still having a cool girl vibe without trying too hard (jk, I totally tried hard). I found this shirt on […]
