Last week we had picture day at work – kind of felt like middle school but with no uniform. Here I am in the working world, and I get to choose my own outfit. I wanted to put together something that showed my personality but was professional and spoke to all different styles. I want my clients to trust me as the expert.

This blazer was my first step in building the outfit. Why? Because what screams professional more than a blazer? Next, I chose the blouse because well, it was going to be a focal point in the photo too. It’s feminine and adds dimension and texture, so I thought it would pop against the black blazer. Lastly, I chose these coated jeans because they were a nice contrast to the feminine details in the blouse and the structured lines of the blazer, and of course I had to wear a headband. They have been staples in my wardrobe over the last 8 months!

This weekend was a busy one… from breakfast with friends to car shopping, of course a trip to Ice House, an SMU basketball game and lots of yummy food. I wouldn’t change a thing! My favorite Saturdays are filled with lots of activities and beautiful weather!

Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite sweaters, but shop quickly because few sizes are left. I love that it has a wool body and lace sleeves – perfect for the warmish Dallas weather. Layer with a vest instead of a jacket to show off these fabulous sleeves. What do y’all think?

Friday Finds: Bodysuits

Happy Friday, y’all! This week I’m highlighting the ease of a bodysuit because they can make an outfit look more seamless and put together. Of course, it can make going to the bathroom a little difficult as well if it doesn’t have snaps. I styled this one shoulder bodysuit with this high waisted skirt, so I didn’t have to worry about keeping a t-shirt tucked in. Everything stayed in its place all day long – no readjusting needed after an hour sitting at my desk. This look can also go day to night if I lose the loafer and denim jacket and add a heel.

Below, I’ve linked other bodysuits that can be paired with high waisted jeans, flirty skirts and your favorite paper bag shorts.

Friday Finds: Gucci Galore

You know as well as I do that Gucci shoes are everywhere these days! Everybody’s wearing them: bloggers, your boss, your neighbor… you name it. Because of this, I decided to highlight their shoes as this week’s Friday Finds. I searched my favorite consignment retailers, and this is just a peak at what’s out there. Shopping consignment is a great way to buy into a trend without paying full price, and let’s be real, full price can be a lot.

My hair will continue to be on top of my head if it stays this hot. Mercy…

Skirts can be hard to style. You want the perfect top to tuck in, to leave out or to sit right at the top of your waistband. I often avoid skirts unless I know I have that perfect top to pair back. I bought this skirt as a set to the matching blouse, BUT I hadn’t figured out what else to pair it with until I felt inspired by its texture. I tucked this old eyelet blouse into the skirt for the perfect work look.

Get inspired by what you already have in your closet!
