Casual Work Style: Pencil Skirt & Denim Jacket


“April Showers” is definitely not relenting. It has been raining all week with no end in sight. Besides work and my fitness classes, I have been staying indoors hoping for dry and sunny days. I hear the weekend weather might be great so I have my fingers crossed.

Compared to my previous work style post, this post reflects my casual workday. Rather than wearing a pair of jeans on some causal Fridays, I sometimes go with a mix of formal and casual items. The pencil skirt with the stripe tank and denim jacket is a different take to a casual workday. Enjoy the rest of your week guys
P.S, I have a giveaway coming up so don’t forget to check back on Friday

Work Style: Pleated Skirt + Button down Shirt


Hello friends and hope you all had a great weekend. These days, our Saturdays follow a routine where we take Nolan to his early morning swimming class with family activities later in the day. Hubby and I have started planning Nolan’s first birthday party and I am very excited. You can see the theme of his birthday party on my Pinterest. How time flies; our baby is growing so fast.
On this post, I am sharing my spring work style.  I love pastel colored clothes and how they brighten up work styles – a particularly good approach when worried about wearing some bright colors such as red, to work. Another way to update your work style this spring is by incorporating button-down shirts with contrasting edgings…definitely a trend to watch for this spring.

What To Wear: Travel Style

What To Wear: Travel Style

Top || Snood || Sunglasses || Ring || Jeans || Flats || Bag

Traveling for me means comfort. I typical go for boyfriend jeans due to its loose and comfy feel. I  also bring a jacket, scarf or snood with me because it tends to get a bit chilly in planes. A big bag is a must for me to accommodate magazines, IPad, ear phone, books and snacks. Depending on the length of the flight, I travel in heels; but the longer the flight I opt for comfortable flats or loafers.

Virgos Lounge Farrah Dress


Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! Going by the recent forecast, this weekend’s weather will be great and I am ready to wear something free and breezy like my new Virgos Lounge maxi dress.
A warm day calls for a perfect maxi dress. I love the print, fit and the slit details of this dress. This Virgos Lounge maxi dress is one of those dresses that can be transformed easily from a formal wear to casual one. I paired it with my beige heels and without the heels for a fun day in the park.

Pastel On Pastel

Outfit: Topshop skirt (sold out, similar here & here, love this here) // Topshop crop top (old, love this here) // Christian Louboutin pumps (similar here, affordable here & here) // Lipstick (here, love this here) // Target bag (here, love this here) // Nail polish (here)

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great Easter weekend. Our’s began with Nolan’s swimming class on Saturday ending with errands to get Easter items ready.
On Sunday morning, we attended the Easter Service in church and met my mum at home cooking a big meal. You can check out a mirror shot of what I wore to church on my Instagram. Later in the evening, I watched my ‘guilty pleasure’ show - Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion with a friend before calling it a night.

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to Nordstrom Pentagon for their ‘Beauty Trend’ Show. The event highlighted spring and pastel trends as such, I opted for a pastel on pastel ensemble. My outfit revolved around blush pink and pale blue colors while keeping accessories neutral. The crop top actually has a matching skirt, which I will be blogging soon. I previously incorporated the crop top in my "Wish List” post here.

Trench


Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend and hope you are having a great week so far. We have been enjoying a lovely warm weather here in Maryland with blossoming flowers all around. That trend was however shortened yesterday when winter made a sudden comeback. The temperature dropped and we had light snow showers. I thought we were done with the cold weather.

Prior to the change in weather, I wore my Chicwish skirt and trench as shown on this post. My love for lace skirts drew me to the skirt. I love the length and floral crotchet details. It is very versatile and can be paired in different ways. For this look, I paired it with a tee for a relaxed and comfortable look. I completed the outfit with a spring "must-have" trench coat and statement pumps.

NEW IN: Nicholas Kirkwood


Say hello to my new favorite friend! Well, maybe not so new since I bought it during a sale last year.  I wore it here for a casual look. I had my eyes on this Nicholas Kirkwood pumps for a long time and waited patiently for it to go on sale before making the purchase. I love unique shoes; the color and check prints won me over…definitely a statement piece that can transform a simple outfit into a great one.

Loving these pairs...

Colored Suit


Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! I really feel like it is Thursday already; probably, because I can’t wait for the weekend to come along. Exciting news for us, Nolan started crawling forward two days ago. Yep… he did it. Prior to that, he had been crawling backwards …babies are very interesting! He is very eager to walk and is always holding onto something or someone to pull himself up. I officially have a cruiser baby Nolan…time to hide everything. J
Colored suits are one of my favorite outfits and dominant during spring/summer seasons. I have worn different colored suits in the past and also, while I was pregnant here. I love mixing suits with print tops (as seen here) or with simple plain shirts as worn on this post and previous post here.  I look forward to styling more colored suits this spring/summer especially red and yellow suits.

Mirrored Emerald


Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. On Saturday, we took Nolan to his second swimming class and he was more relaxed compared to the prior week. Hubby carried him prior to me going into the pool and Nolan practically held on to his shirt and would not let go – an interesting sight. He only calmed down after I gave him some water toys to play with. After the swim class, we all went to brunch with my mum and I stayed indoors afterwards. The weekend was also filled with great news from two friends; one is expecting her second child and another got a massive engagement ring. I love celebrating great news with friends.

Whenever I wear a white shirt and maxi skirt, it reminds me of Carolina Herrera’ signature white shirt ensemble. For this look, I paired my emerald green maxi skirt with a plain white shirt complemented with emerald toned accessories. I love the emerald green color of the skirt as it exudes elegance and warmth. I love it more for the fact that it is also the traditional birthstone for May -- my birth month. Have a great and lovely week guys!

Floral + Coral


Hi loves! Hope your week is going well. I will like to say a big thank you to you for the amazing support I receive daily on my blog, Instagram, Facebook and even on my YouTube channel. While I have not posted on my YouTube channel in a while, you still support me and I assure you, some videos will be uploaded soon. Your comments are much appreciated.

In this post, I am wearing a floral print skirt and a light coral blouse from Everlane. The weather is still a bit chilly so I wore my pastel coral coat. Like I mentioned in “Trend Alert: Pastel Coats”, a pastel coat is a great addition to any spring wardrobe. I love how the coat completes the look. Have a great and beautiful week everyone.

Trend Alert: Pastel Coats

Trend Alert: Pastel Coats

It is spring time and this means, it is time to ditch your dark colored coats and embrace pastel coats. A pastel colored coat is a must-have this spring - a great addition to your spring ensemble.


I am a big fan of pastel colors and I cannot stay away from my pale pink coat (seen here) and sky blue coat previously worn here.

Have a lovely day!
