When it comes to workwear, experimenting with jumpsuits is one of my favorite things to do for spring. They add a different silhouette to an otherwise uniform wardrobe. For this look, I paired a turtleneck and sock boots with this Hope Ave Jumpsuit. I love that the jumpsuit pays homage to a suit with the conservative plaid print. I wanted to contrast the plaid with a darker color instead of a light white, I think this brings more attention to the pattern.
For warmer days, I would pair the jumpsuit with a sleeveless blouse and heeled mules slides like the ones below:
The purpose of this article is to encourage you to wear your formalwear in more ways than one. Obviously this depends on the type of piece that you have.
If your go to is a leather jacket, then then break it out for the festivities. It is durable, super cute and it's the perfect way to add color to your look.
My number one pick for green Saint Paddy's Day accessories is a green bomber jacket. Dress it up like I did below, or down with a graphic tee, turtleneck, jeans and boots.
Stay warm and make a statement in a green faux fur coat. If you're not into a bright green, opt for a forest green, or dark green. It will go with more.
Another easy to go on this holiday is a green pant. Below, I am wearing a velvet trouser, but another option is an army green pant or denim.
Last but not least, throw on a green blazer, for a polished Saint Paddy's Day look. Wear it with a simple long sleeve, or fun tee underneath, it'll look great with whatever you pair it with. Plus, you can wear it to work the next day and act as if you didn't spend Sunday in Soutie celebrating. Just make sure it doesn't smell like beer.
This first look is my take on an early evening outfit, it transitions nicely from day to dinner. I paired a loose blouse with an A line floral skirt, sock boots and a blazer. To spice it up, I tied a black neckerchief around my neck to create an elevated, choker-like look. When it comes to evening wear, I think that chokers are super sexy, but can come across as childish. The perfect alternative for a more mature look is a thin scarf or neckerchief. Mine was a parting gift from DRESSHIRT, the fashion company that I used to intern for.

When it comes to denim, I consider myself an expert. Growing up as the tallest girl in school,I spent years looking for denim that didn't fit like flood pants. And boy, was that hard. You name it, I have probably tried it on.
Below I have shared my favorite brands for certain styles of denim based on the pieces that I have in my closet.
Bell Bottoms |
These were my go to style in middle school because they always ran longer than the other types of jeans. Free People has a great selection of bell bottoms that are never boring.

Rag and Bone |
Veronica Beard |
Stretchy Jegging |
Anthropologies Pilcro jeggings are my favorite stretchy workwear pant. I own the high waisted orange corduroy ones, that you can shop here.
American Eagle |
High Rise Skinny |
In my opinion, these is the most flattering style of denim, and the most versatile. My top pick for high rise jeans is J.Crew Lookout High Rise, but second place goes to Urban Outfitters BDG Cigarette High Rise.

how to wear velvet and metallic stars for the holidays. The holidays are coming up, so let's ring them in in style. Swap your sweater for a textured blazer, and get decked out in sparkles. I worked with LIT Boutique to create a fun holiday look. We paired textured red velvet and some sparkles to create the perfect look for a night out.
giving you those fall coffee shop vibes and fall outfit inspiration with this statement sweater.
There is a familiar nostalgia about the crispness of fall air and the transition to boots and sweaters. It's a bittersweet goodbye to summer, but a warm welcome to the colder weather that us New Englander's know so well. There is something refreshing about fall to me, it feels like the beginning of something. It's time to reset and restart and this reflects in the way that we dress for fall.
Surprisingly, the best work wear investment I made was in a black pleated midi skirt. I say surprisingly because I am not much a of a skirt wearer, I'm usually in jeans. However, this skirt has provided me with a reliable base to plan work wear and street wear around. I have worn it with a blouse and heels for work and changed into a tee and sneakers for exploring the city. It has been my key transition piece for fall and spring, and always excites me season after season.
how to wear the statement sleeves trend for a work outfit and for a casual outfit. 80's are back. When I first heard this I cringed, the 80's are my least favorite decade in fashion. The styles were so out there and gaudy with neon colors, perms and ill fitting clothing (MC Hammer pants). Even after seeing the Saint Laurent sparkle boot during fashion week my feelings haven't changed much. However, when details are taken from the decade and simplified, and modernized, I can get behind them. Like this simplified statement sleeve with a wrap waist. In addition to being "on trend", it creates a flattering silhouette. The volume of the sleeves paired with a slim waist, creates the illusion of a smaller med section. I chose to pair this H&M balloon sleeve top with high waisted denim and a monogram belt. This style can be overwhelming, so I recommend keeping the look simple. Here are some other ways that I plan on wearing it:
