This week was one of my craziest of all time.

Chloe has an infection (sad face) and underwent a full day of checkups, an ultra sound, treatment and 3 different types of medicines yesterday. It’s absolutely heartbreaking to see my little 5 pound angel in pain. Although, I must say — she pretty much acts like she’s not in any pain at all (#puppyprobs, can I please just transfer all of her energy to me for one day?). I also now know what it feels like to be a mom — #exhausted.

Besides dealing with parenting my sick child :) this week has been filled with lots of meetings and new projects. I’m super excited to start introducing some new ideas to the blog, so stay tuned for all that later this Spring! In the meantime, I’ve been eyeing some fabulous staple pieces for the working girl (yasss) and this pinstripe dress is top of mind. Its classic silhouette and tie-front makes it a timeless go-to for professional wear. Plus, I’m absolutely loving the vintage appeal of the pinstripes. I styled the dress with classic, yet on-trend accessories that scream “chic” – giving the staple dress an on-trend vibe while maintaining its classic flair. You can find all of the details below for more info.  Have a wonderful Wednesday, beauties! XO

Did any of you girls watch the Super Bowl?

I did – ish. Essentially – I watched commercials, watched Beyonce and Coldplay kill it (uh duh), ate a lot of chips (too many chips), and played with Chlo Chlo while doing some work. SO yes, me too! Watched the superbowl, if you will. :)

Which brings me straight to talking less about football and more about what I love … casual weekend wear. When it comes to weekend lounging, watching the big game, or casual days on the town – a staple striped blouse and boyfriend jeans (psst, these are on sale) are an absolute must. I dressed up this look with white pumps (because LBH, who doesn’t love a pair of classic and comfortable white pumps?), but wearing flats or flip flops would be a cozy match as well. A neutral scarf is always a fun accessory to add a little something-something to a basic #ootd. The most essential part of weekend wear is feeling comfortable. I’m a firm believer that comfort is tied to confidence, and you can’t feel confident and ready to tackle the day if you’re not feeling your best.

What did you guys do for the superbowl? Have a fab Monday, pretties! XO

There’re two absolutely essential parts of February that currently have my heart. 

1. More reason to eat more chocolate (uh duh!) and 2. More reason to get dressed and dazzled up. There you have it, the two keys to my heart.

Chocolate and dresses — I’m definitely not ashamed of it. I think any girl can name a time or two when stepping into a pair of heels and zipping up a pretty little dress made them feel absolutely elegant for one special night. Even if it’s not with/for a special someone – that’s A-OK. It is absolutely essential to have a time in your life when you get dressed up to simply make yourself feel special (remember – sometimes your 20s are about loving and taking care of no one but… yourself!). And in my case —  this boils down to making myself look and feeling darling… and then eating a lot of chocolate to boot (tee hee!).

So this Valentine’s Day — the darling essentials here are: this little under $100 red dress, the B-E-S-T lipstick / lip stain there ever was, and a pair of absolutely essential white pumps. Get in on the details below, darling, and I hope you enjoy a little bit of chocolate-binging and dressing-up-darling this month as well! XO

Valentine’s Day with Nordstrom

I’ll admit it – I’m a hopeless romantic at heart.

A lot of single girls my age may complain about the big heart-eyed holiday being right around the corner – but I can’t say I feel the same. Even though this is my first “galentine’s,” aka – my first Valentine’s Day being very single in about 6 years — I’m still excited and ready to celebrate le month of amour (PS – happy February, y’all!) in little red dresses and classic accessories. Don’t have a man in your life either? Or maybe you do. In either case, you can still celebrate whatever your love life situation may be by getting dressed up and treating yourself and looking your darling best. Whether it’s brunch with the girls, dinner with your significant other, or seeing “How To Be Single” a la cinema (I’m raising my hand on this one) – celebrating in style is always an option. I’m planning on celebrating in this little red shift dress (the perfect stand-out show-stopping dress that fits all body types) a la Nordstrom. I accessorized this under $50 shift dress with leopard print accessories, shoes (heart eyes and under $100!) and leopard print Clare V accessories here.

And with getting dazzled and dressed up (aka treating yourself), there’s also treating those around you. I plan on showing my galpals how much I love them with the cutest gift card around (seriously) via Nordstrom. The best part? Nordstrom donates 1% of all Gift Card sales to local nonprofits — making the gift of giving even sweeter this month. Nordstrom is the the most darling vday destination because its fab-u-lous starry-eyed selection, and I’m currently coveting Valentine’s gifts such as a darling dash of this Valentinto perfumea pretty pair of sparkly studs, and a cozy wildfox pullover. Check out the rest of their Vday gift guide here, and happy February pretties!

Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
