Not all office holiday parties are created equal. Some will require you to wear a cocktail attire; while some are more formal than others. There are also holiday parties that are held within the office building or similar low-key locations, just like where I work. Dressing up for office holiday parties like this is a bit tricky. The key is to choose an outfit that’s both sophisticated and professional. And that’s where Misook specializes in. Today, I’m going to share 3 outfit ideas that will make you stand out at your low-key office holiday party. Misook was created in 1985 with…

I can’t believe that we’re in December already! But honestly, I’m so excited because there’s only 3 more weeks before Christmas!!! November has been a fun month for my family especially since we did a quick trip to North Carolina for Thanksgiving to see an old friend of mine. Here are my favorite posts for the month of November!

I realized I haven’t done as much fashion posts as I’d like to lately; you’ve probably noticed that too. My life has been crazy busy and extremely eventful recently that I just don’t have enough time to work on my blog. You probably miss my fashion posts. And since I usually share some life updates and my outfits on Instagram, I realized I should do an Instagram roundup post every month.

How are you all doing? My week has been good so far. However, last weekend was very traumatizing for me and my daughter. We lost her at the beach during our family trip. Thankfully, we found her right away and she was unharmed. She seems to be doing really great and didn’t remember what happened; but I’m still trying so hard to recover from it. I hope your weekend was better than mine. Anyway, today, I’d love to talk about my new favorite suede jacket.

Do you want to look fabulous for Fall (or for any season) without breaking the bank? I get it! We all want to look our best no matter what season (or day) it is. But not everyone has all the money to spend at high-end stores. Looking fabulous doesn’t mean you always have to splurge. It’s not always about the labels. I’m not going to be a hypocrite and say I don’t like designer brands, because I do! However, while I do believe that some designer pieces are well worth the investment because of their quality, I am also aware…

Can you believe it’s almost back-to-school time? Which means fall is just around the corner. In fact, it has been getting colder in the mornings here in Virginia; which makes me a bit excited because fall is my favorite season. I’m sure you’re also starting to think about updating your closet in preparation for the colder months. These fall must-haves will absolutely help you on which staple items to get when you shop! I assure you, you’d get to use them for years to come. You probably know by now that I’m all about practicality and making sure you’d get to…

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine has been so much fun! I attended a bridal shower for a dear friend of mine last Saturday! I got to meet a bunch of awesome ladies who are just as happy as I am, maybe even more, for her; and got to spend some time with a couple of my good friends. Then on Sunday, my husband and I took the kids to Kid Junction, an indoor playground, and spent the entire morning there. It was a really nice place; they have a nice variety of activities for kids. There is a huge…

With winter being over soon (that’s what I want to believe), it’s time to get excited about Spring. I don’t know about you but I am ALWAYS looking forward to spring as soon as January starts. I guess because at this point, I am so done with the freezing temperature. One thing that always gets me excited for spring (or any season really), is when I have to shop for key pieces to update my wardrobe. So if you’re looking to update your spring wardrobe, you’ve come to the right place. Today, I’m sharing fun yet practical spring must have essentials you need…

Happy Thursday! I hope you’re all having a great week so far and had a great Valentine’s Day with your loved ones! I know I did even though I had to attend a 6-hour long meeting at work. After work, we gave the kids their gifts and watched as they open it with excitement, and ordered some Chinese food for dinner; then after the kids went to bed, my husband surprised me with his gift. And that’s when I realized I totally forgot my gift for him at work. I had it delivered at work while I was out last week and decided…

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are having a great week! Mine has been crazy busy which is why I took a few days off blogging. I am back though with a new guest author; Claire Hastings. Claire is a design student and a writer from Brisbane, Australia. She’s going to tell us how Australian’s view beauty untraditionally and how we can all benefit from them. – The Land Down Under is one of the first places to greet the New Year every 1st of January. And while the rest of us are still waiting for the fireworks to…
