Pink, Lace and Pom Poms

I picked up this pink lace shift dress from my favorite online style steal site, Shein.com and am loving it! It’s not too short which is always a concern with their clothes and it has a great lining! The bell sleeves and pom poms are so cute and trendy as well. I mean anything with pom poms right now is on my wish list!

My favorite part was that it was a complete style steal of a Tularosa dress from last season that was just too much for me to spend on a trendy piece. This dress would be perfect for a bridal shower, dinner party or any spring event.

The office style guide: Interview Ready

So I feel like my blog has kind of gotten away from my original view for it; to provide everyday looks for a casual office setting. In an effort to try and get back to office-styling, I’m sharing some styling tips for an interview outfit!

The biggest piece of advice I get is to not wear purple or red to an interview, not sure why but those colors are shown to make people angry or unhappy. So stay away! I tend to lean towards a neutral palette with some great accessories as accents. I have been complemented on my necklace or shoes at an interview and I think that gives them a lasting memory of you in their mind.

As I’ve been shopping I’ve seen great pieces from J. Crew and Anne Taylor that would be stylish while still looking professional.

I love these shoes I actually was going to get them in the spring but the velvet is gorgeous! And they are a great way to add a touch of style to your interview outfit.

Velvet Tied-Up Heels

This would be great for an interview at a more edgy company where you can really show your personal style!

A dress for me is always the easiest outfit for a interview. You can do a fabulous heel with it and look super classy. I love the bell sleeves on this one and the flattering silhouette.

Flutter Sleeve Dress

These are some statement accessories that will get you noticed but at the same time don’t look over the top with a professional outfit.

Just purchased this and I adore it! So flattering.

Silk Blouse

THIS blazer! For me blazers are tough, I find they make me look way to boxy and don’t flatter my body type. This one reminds me of the classic Chanel tweed. It would also add flare to a plain skirt or pants bottom.

Fringe Trim Blazer

I just bought this recently and love it’s versatility. It’s very office appropriate and I love the bow.

Piped Tie Neck Blouse

These, while boring, are amazing pants. I love the stretchy fabric of J. Crew’s pants and these are the ultimate work pants.

Campbell Trouser

If you’re feeling a little adventurous, a printed trouser is a great addition to your work wear. These ones are so cute and I love the cropped style.

Floral Pants

I hope this has given you all some office style inspiration. No one needs to be wearing the boring old black suit-white shirt anymore! Now you’re ready to take on any interview!

Jewelry Crush

watch

Lately I’ve just been so obsessed with jewelry accounts on Instagram and finding the perfect everyday gems. I’m one who loves statement pieces but what I really hunt for is good quality jewelry that I can wear everyday and even sleep in…because I’m lazy like that.

I’ve recently gotten into wearing my watch and some no fuss bracelets everyday and am loving the look. My watch is actually from H&M and cost me twenty dollars. I get so many compliements on it!  Its super lightweight and doesnt get in the way when I type.

Tawny Wristwatch

Delicate necklaces are a must for me. They add a little bit of something extra to any outift. I’ve had a ton over the years and kind of wear them down until they’re super tarnished or somehow break, because like I said, I never take them off. This brings my hunt for a new one.

The Dogeared necklaces have really caught my attention lately, I like that they all have little messages and you can get a real gold one and they’re not outrageously expensive.

Initial Bar Necklace

I’ve seen a ton of people with gold or silver bar necklaces with either coordinates or your name and I’m loving the sentimental value of them while having an edgy look. They can also be really affordable on sites like Baublebar.

Rings are something that I truly feel naked without and although I have one I wear everyday I’m always looking for some other fun ones for my other hand. I recently found RingConcierge on Instagram and have been obsessed with all her photos.
