One Color That Looks Great on All Women


Be the One to Stand Out

The One Color that looks great on all women

Every season magazine editors list new trends that are all the rave.  Then other fast fashion industries such as New York & Company, Zara, and H&M scramble to implement these trends into their seasonal lineups. We, the consumers, then go out and purchase these trendy items because we believe they’re what’s in right now.  Well, I will tell you that I’m not a “trendy” person. My style is pretty simple and doesn’t change much. But I do like to incorporate a few trendy pieces in the mix if they work with my style.

This spring, many new colors, styles, and prints were on the list of what’s trendy this season.  Some of the trends mentioned were khakis, gingham print, statement stripes, floral, etc. But the one trend that got my attention is yellow! I know you’re like, “Really, that’s what you came up with?”…

Werk Girl: Transition Your Outfit from the Office to Happy Hour


Women wear multiple hats. We are mothers, wives, bosses, entrepreneurs, friends, advisers, etc.  We chauffeur, we mentor, we entertain, we cook, we clean, and we work all while trying to look presentable.  And to be honest, some of us just give up on looking presentable.  It can be exhausting!  The last thing we have time to be worried about is what to wear to the office, or to that business meeting, or to dinner with friends after work.  I mean who has time to put together outfits when your main focus is ensuring that the rest of your world is running smoothly.  The answer is no one.

This is where I come in.  For us women that are pressed for time, we need to be able to pull together items that are already in our closet to create looks.  And of course, these looks need to help us feel extra…

Casual Friday: Pink Top + Black Pants

Happy Friday!  It’s so important to try new things when it comes to fashion.  I know most of us have our personal style preferences pretty much figured out but it doesn’t hurt to switch it up a bit.


I say this because this top that I’m wearing normally wouldn’t have caught my attention because it has so much going on.  I usually go for a more simpler look as you can tell from my previous posts.


But for some reason, when I saw this top, I was like, “I’m gonna try this on”.  I think it was because it was on sale!  But either way, I tried it on and loved it.


It’s from Topshop and I’m not going to lie, some of there clothes fit me rather strangely (not their jeans though).  This top fit perfectly, however.  So I bought it.


It’s now one of my faves!  I love the high structured neckline and the wrap front.  And the side has a little belt the cinches my waist in a bit.  Who doesn’t want a snatched waist!

It’s a very smart, stylish piece! And I love it! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend.  See you Monday with more great pieces!

Navy Lace-Mesh Sheath Dress

We’re already on Wednesday! The week is flying by.  Today I’m featuring this very flattering navy lace-mesh sheath dress. I don’t know how they do it, but New York & Company always finds a new way to perfectly design the sheath dress.


I purchased this dress on another one of my New York & Company runs.  I found it on sale for $16.99! And guess what. It’s now $22.48!  Can we say deal?!?!


Your girl never gets tired of sheath dresses.  They come in so many styles and designs. I could wear a different one every day of my life (If I could afford it).


The sheath dress just works for my shape.  Actually, this dress works great for most shapes.  That’s the beauty of this style of dress.


As you can see, this week I’m rocking my pink lipstick from MAC Cosmetics. Yes girl!  We can wear pink lipstick!  The color is called Flat Out Fabulous.


I lined my lips with MAC Cosmetics’ lip pencil in the shade “Vino”.  After I lined my lips and put on the Flat Out Fabulous lipstick, I put a bright pink lipstick on top of that one.  The color is in the shade “Pink Dahlia” by Black Radiance.  I love the way this lippie contrasts with my navy dress.

This dress is absolutely gorgeous. The picture does not do it justice.  It’s well made and it fits perfectly.  And the best thing is that it was only $22.48 while the quality is still on point.  What do you think of this one?  Let me know in the comments below.

Make a Statement in a Vibrant Dress

Happy Monday Lovelies! I had a wonderful weekend! I wore this dress to my first garden party this weekend.


This event had multiple speakers who spoke on the topic of branding for entrepreneurs.  There was so much great information provided.


But I think the best advice that I received was “be inspired to expand/grow.”  Don’t just stay stuck in one spot.  Always try to become better.


Now lets get to this beautiful Eva Mendes Collection Dress from New York & Company.  It was a head turner at the party!


I knew that I wanted something vibrant and floral for the garden party. This dress had all of those qualities and more.


The one shoulder detail and the splits on the bottom of the dress (not visible in the photos) add a bit of sexiness to it.  And the floral details makes it so fun and feminine.  It’s also very flowy which I love!

Casual Friday: The Perfect Dress for a Summer Cookout

Summer is here and that means plenty of summer cookouts.  With the 4th of July being a few days away, I decided to feature this cute dress! I thought it would be perfect for the cookouts that I’m sure most of us will be attending next week.


I know. I know.  It’s not red, white, or blue.  But it’s okay to wear what you want on the 4th.  I’m sure you won’t get in trouble!


This dress has been an Old Navy staple for the past two or three summers for sure.  I even wore a similar one to my gender reveal during the summer of 2015.


They’ve recreated it a little every year and they’ve added new prints but it continues to be one of my favorites.  I love the fit and flare structure because it allows for a little sexiness and fun.  Plus it hides the pooch!


And it’s yellow! Yellow is trending this summer, and for good reason – look how good it looks against my skin.  I don’t have many yellow pieces in my closet but this dress has me seriously thinking about adding some.


I added my cognac colored fringe sandals from Old Navy, as well as my crossbody from JustFab, to keep my accessories neutral.  This dress has so many pretty colors that a few colorful accessories would go great with it as well.


This is a fun summer dress that I can see myself wearing to many casual events with family and friends.  It’s not too short or too long and it fits perfect!  So I would say it’s a winner!

Black, White, and Right Jogger Pants

With the universe finally allowing us to enjoy some sunshine this weekend, I decided to head to downtown Duluth, GA to enjoy some of the local shops and scenery. The weather was so nice. Though the sun was out, it wasn’t hot. There was more of a breeze. After days and weeks of rain, I think we all could appreciate this beautiful weather even more.


It’s crazy because I live about 10 minutes away from downtown Duluth and had never been to this little area. There are so many nice boutiques, restaurants, and park areas. I loved it. That’s why I decided to have a little impromptu photo shoot there.


Today I’m featuring these cute black and white joggers!  These pants have been trendy for a while now; probably because of the comfort they provide. Joggers are my go-to when lounging around the house. And as you can see, they can be dressed up with heels as well.


This pair is from my favorite store which I’m sure you’ve already guessed is New York & Company.


I’ve always loved the contrasting of white and black pieces together. It gives off a simple yet chic and sophisticated vibe that really stands out.


And to add to that vibe, I usually like to throw in a pop of color. Today that pop of color was my cute little red mini bag from New York & Company.

The great thing about this look (as is with all of my looks) is that it is more of a business casual look which means that it can be worn to work and on a night out with the girls. I’m always looking for pieces with this kind of versatility.  So how do you feel about mixing black and white pieces together? Do you love it as much as do? Let me know in the comments below.
