I bought these culottes last summer in NYC, and my oh my how comfortable they are! And the elastic band is a game changer. I’ve paired them with a black cropped tank, they would also look cute with a white button down tied up or a blouse tucked in. I love the contrast of the burnt orange bomber, which adds a little drama but also keeps me warm in a freezing cold office.

Say Yes to Embroidery

This top is one of the pieces I purchased from the Zara sale! Unfortunately it’s not available anymore, but I tagged something similar. Embroidery is all the rage, which I’m sure you’ve noticed, so don’t be afraid to add a piece to your closet! It should be a staple of your summer wardrobe.

PS Zara has a lot of new pieces out for fall, so check them out!

Well, first of all Target has great pieces for your home. When it comes to accessories, lighting and bath essentials, they’ve got it all. I found the perfect frames for our den area, so I had to share.

| Glossier Boy Brow |

My roommate just started using this brow jell, and she loves it. Although, she wishes she would’ve gotten a shade lighter. She also got the Green Galaxy face mask.

| Pixel Glasses |

As you can see I learn a lot from my friends, and a few of them just ordered these glasses by Pixel. They help protect your eyes from the blue light of the computer. If you look at a computer screen all day, these are worth the purchase, and you get a 30 risk free trial! They also happen to be super cute, so you can make a fashion statement while you’re at it.

| The Beautiful Word |

My grandparents just gave me this devotional, and I love it. It gives you a verse to study each day, a couple of paragraphs of teaching and space to write. If you’re in need of a new devotional, I highly recommend this one.

| Needlepoint Pillow |

My mom gave me this needlepoint pillow as a reminder of my fun summer in London, and it’s the perfect addition to my room.

The Unsuspecting Piece

Once again, I have fun getting dressed in the morning. I’ve paired two older pieces and brought them back to life! The blouse is technically a tunic which allows me to have ample fabric to tie. The skirt is a great transition piece that I can pair with a white blouse in the summer and with a black sweater for the fall and winter. The piece I’m most proud of is the black suede slide that I’m wearing. I got these at TJ Maxx for $16.99, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. This style is selling at big department stores for over $200. Mine look the same yet cost a fraction of the price.

I Like What I Do

I thoroughly enjoy getting dressed every morning before work. I suppose this means a couple of things: I like what I do, and well, I like what I do. To be honest, I’ve always enjoyed getting dressed each morning. Maybe not the mornings my mom made me wear tights to church, but every other. And, I like my new job. Working for Front Door Fashion has been a great transition into the real world, and I’ve loved styling each woman no matter her needs. Styling is my passion.

PS this top is old so I found a few great alternatives.
