Shades of Coral!

Jacket- Express (Similar), Shorts- Boohoo (Similar), Heels- Just Fab (Similar), Necklace (old/Love this).

Happy new week! Like most, I can't believe we are already half way through this month as well as through the year. When this month started, I personally challenged myself to be better at getting to work on time more.  I have been better and I'll share a few simple tips which have helped me.
-No caffeine after 6 pm
-Picking out my outfit the night before
-Going to bed no later than 10-11pm
-Turning off all stimulation when in bed---no TV, no iphones, no social media, no magazines etc

About this outfit, I wanted a 'suit' look but one that's more fun and not so serious.  The jackets matching shorts were a bit shorter than I wanted this time so I paired these shorts of a similar coral color hue with the jacket, keeping the look simple with a white tank top, jewelry, and heels. I think it's ok to wear a suit with not exact colors as long as the colors are of a similar hue.  Thanks!

Black, White, & a Bow!

 Jeans- Topshop (Here), Heels- Justfab (Similar), Shirt- Express (Similar). 

Hello! So I have found that there are some things that just don't work for my body type but there are some I find that usually work for me being tall with broad shoulders.  One such item is a long sleeve button down shirt.  I love them and think that although they work for me, they work on different body types too.  When I see the question of what some closet staples are, I think of a long sleeve button down shirt as they could be worn in various ways, dressed up or down.

Today I paired the shirt with this white denim and added the bow heels to add an extra boldness to the outfit even though sticking with black and white.  Thanks for reading!

Another Alternative to the Little Black Dress!

Dress- Express (Here), Heels- Just Fab (love them. Here), Bag- Michael Kors (Similar).

Hope you had a fun or relaxing weekend!  I attended a bday party for a 3 year old and had a great time.  It was cute watching the innocence among the little ones and I just remembered thinking how blissful innocence is, and how it should be protected because once it's gone, it's gone.

About this look, although I loved the shape/style of the dress, I was hesitant because of the print but got it because snake print is a print I lacked.  I think a printed little dress is another alternative to the little black dress.  I added more color into the look with the red bag and heels for summer.  I think when wearing a busy print like a snake print, it's best to avoid other printed or patterned additions keeping the focus on one print at a time.  Thanks for reading!
