A Few Details, Darling…

pyjamas, all day

Hello, gorgeous! What are you up to on this cold Sunday? I’m currently mentally preparing myself before the freeze during today’s photo shoot—as I mix winter’s icy demise with all of my favorite darling spring clothes that I just cannot wait to share this March. In other words, trying to stay snuggled in these cozy pajamas as long as possible before braving the cold. Big shoutout to my photographer who endures all of these freeezzing shoots with me!

Since today is the first day of March, I’m also planning some fun SXSW and Spring Break plans as I anticipate the welcome of the first day of Spring (oh I just cannot wait!). How are you all planning on celebrating Spring? I’ll be enjoying all three days of SXSW’s favorite Neiman Marcus party and I’d love to see you there. Oh, and admission is free! See below for more darling details:

Neiman Marcus “Make Some Noise, Bold Women Bold Voices” Party!

Where: 78 Rainey Street Austin, TX

When: March 18th-March 20th

It will be oh so fun because: Each room of the “Make Some Noise” house on Rainey Street will provide opportunities to explore creativity through technology, music, food, art, and fashion.

That 70’s Trend

spring trendsspring trends

Who else is hopping on this 70’s trend?

Shocking, it is — considering part of my mantra is to steer clear from impulse buys that scream “trend!” However, I will admit that I’ve always been particularly darling to the 70’s era and it’s (extra fabulous) sensual style. I’m talking sleek neutrals, statement-making trousers, silky blouses, and rich colors.

Of course, I’ve decided to put my own “darling touch” (if you will) on my idea of 70’s inspiration. The process initially began with these statement wide leg pants — which might be my favorite item posted on the blog to date. I was excited to find that these absolutely darling statement-making trousers are made of a wrinkle-free material, even though they have the look and feel of linen. The best part? They’re under $100! I paired the trousers with a sweet new bucket bag (that goes with just about everything), a topshop crop (on sale – $34!) and a pastel pink fedora. The trousers are extra long, so I tucked my open-toe booties by Dolce Vita underneath (and also got them hemmed!) Happy Friday!

Dressing the Part

Mouse on over and have a read of the article, “15 Professional Habits You Should Develop by Your Mid-20s” by Dana Covit for Domaine.

I was inspired by this read yesterday due to all of its informational tips and fabulous tricks. All of the young professional to-do’s are either bullet points I’m currently trying to work on over time, or tactics I’ve already set in place. The last one, however, particularly caught my eye…

Have an arsenal of work-appropriate clothing choices and dress for the job you want.”

It’s a wonderful piece of advice and I think it’s one to be taken quite seriously…which is exactly where this darling Vila Color block Shift Dress by Asos comes into play. This sweet dress is the perfect example of a frock that’s chic enough to be dressed down with flip flops and a hat to embellish a sweet summer night. And it is the ideal closet staple that can be made seriously sophisticated with a blazer and pointed-toe pumps, making it the perfect addition to our professional wardrobe arsenal. This kind of shopping is shopping smart and I’ll be saving this dress for both darling occasions. What are your favorite go-to’s when it comes to dressing professionally?
