As a stylist, one of the questions I am often asked by my clients is “How do I dress stylish for work?”. I would advise starting off with a work wardrobe staple such as a pencil skirt, a pair of dress pants, or a sheath dress. You then want to add an on trend or stylish item, maybe bold color pumps, a blouse in the color of the season, or a nice nice scarf.
For my outfit I chose a pencil skirt (staple), a stylish but professional graphic print blouse, and bold white heels (very on trend these days).
STYLE TIP: If you’re a curvy girl like myself, depending on your work environment, I would go with a thicker material for your skirt or dress. Knit tends to cling the body and accentuates the curves.
Happy Friday!! We’re officially in spring and I’m celebrating with a little florals today. My top has a hint of floral print so it’s perfect for those not wanting to take the trend full on.
STYLE TIP: My top is little flowy and with it tucked in, it made me look bigger than what I am and a little boxy. My solution? A belt of course! The wide belt helps to define my waist and shows my shape.
Ok, so I’m a little obsessed with crop tops and the different ways in which they can be styled. You may remember a few months ago when I paired a crop top with a pencil skirt. Now I would love to try styling a crop top with a maxi skirt. This right here would be my ideal ensemble for maybe a dinner date or drinks with the ladies.
Thenude pumpis a classic staple that every woman needs to have in her shoe collection. This is actually one of the items that you cansplurgeon without feeling guilty because it is timeless and will carry through many years. However, if you’re a fashionista on a budget, check out these stylish finds that won’t hurt your purse.
STYLE TIPS: I have 2 style tips today. 1) I say if you’re going to wear boyfriend jeans, keep a feminine silhouette on the top. I chose to tie my tank up in the back to make it a crop top but a fitted tank will also work. Since the jeans are a loose fit this gives it a nice balance.
2) This next tip is for my shorties out there. I stand at 5’6″ so my ankle strap heels are fine with my cropped jeans. However, if you’re a bit shorter than me, lose the ankle strap heels for this outfit since it will cut off the line of your legs and make you appear shorter.
A girl can never have too many accessories! Well that’s what I believe, anyway. I am literally obsessing over every item on my March Faves wishlist. It’s all about color watches this spring and this striking blueMichael Kors watch would be a great add on to any outfit. And how fab is the art deco Sabine necklace?! If you know me, then you know I have a thing for scarves. You will definitely see the unique newspaper print scarf with a splash of pink draped around my neck very soon.
Happy Hump Day!! We’re half way through the week! I don’t know about you all, but I am certainly feeling this lost of an hour.
Moving on to what I’m excited about! I’ve just discovered a new department at Nordstrom that I am in love with. It’s called their Savvy Trends department; great product at affordable prices. That is where I snagged this sheer stripedbody-con dress.
I’ve been wanting to style mywhite pumpsfor a while now and thought why not pair them with this black dress. The only problem I was having was that I didn’t have a clutch that worked well with this outfit. And then I looked down on my bathroom floor, and voila…my new Victoria’s Secretmakeup bag. So now my makeup bag doubles as a clutch on occasions.

STYLE TIP:If you’re not exactly happy with your mid section or you feel a little uncomfortable wearing a form fitting dress, trying wearing shapewear, such asSpanx, under your dress. It sucks you in and gives a smoother appearance. I have clients of all sizes that wear spanx!
If you are still not too sure, throw a blazer on top. You still have the body-con dress but with a little more coverage.
Happy Friday!! Today I’m having a little fun mixing prints. I’ve never really been into playing with different prints and patterns. Mixing colors…yes! Mixing prints…this is new for me! I happened to want to wear my camo jacket and my leopard pumps and couldn’t decide which was going to win, so I decided to let both of them have the spotlight for the day. What do you think? Did I pull off mixing camo and leopard?

Since it looks like LA won’t be having winter this year I’ve moved on to spring! I’m on the search for a red blazer that I can dress up with a fab pump or dress down with a pair of fashion sneakers. I love pairing blazers with graphic tees. Oh, and how cute are the animal print bags in the set below?! I want them both!!
Happy Hump Day! This is my first outfit post using my new camera outside! Yay! I love the camera and can’t wait until I fully learn how to use it and purchase another lens. To my blogger friends I welcome any tips you may have!
