Being tall and curvy, my go to dress silhouette is usually a pencil dress. This dress is perhaps the best fitting dress, hugging every curve whilst maintaining a classy look.

I love spending summer evenings after work in the city, especially when I have a chance to ditch work gear to slip into something more casual. If you’ve been following my blog this summer, you’ll notice that I’ve worn nude accessories with just about every outfit. Not only is nude the perfect neutral to pair with any color, but turns out it has become one of my favorite summer colors. Beyond nude shoes and bag, nude tops are a must have. When I shop, I always seem to gravitate towards nude long sleeve tops and find that I always want more. I’ve concluded that a woman can never have enough nude/beige tops in her closet.
When hubs and I decided to spend an evening strolling the city, I decided to pair this peach/nude top with a these beige linen shorts….a recent find at H&M. I love the contrast of nude tones in this look and gives you the versatility to inject a perfect pop of color or print. My snakeprint sandals were the perfect addition for this look.

Most weekends are spent hanging out with friends going to brunch and dinner, but I appreciate those moments where the hubs and I just bounce around town doing random things. I live for these moments when I can just keep it simple and ditch the heels. One of my go to pieces is a loose fit cargo pants with the gathered detail on the bottom. These pants are versatile enough to be worn dressed up or dressed down, with pumps, flats or strappy sandals. I opted to keep the top and bag neutral so the focus would be on the top and sandals.

Sequins is perhaps the one thing in a women’s closet that’s jazzy, fun and dressy. While most people think of sequins as a staple for a going out night look, its also perfect for day wear when not overdone. I was lucky enough to snag this J Crew Collection colorblock sequins skirt for a price that was too good to pass up at last year’s sample sale. Not only does it fit well, but the color combination of mint and taupe makes it the perfect dressy staple for a glam summer look.
I wanted a touch of contrast so I paired it with a white blazer with the addition of a mint green tank top with nude accessories. What do you think of this sequined day look?

I’m a huge fan of A line dresses with its ultra flattering silhoutte. My goal is to find more A line dresses to add to my closet and this dress was a winner. It’s made from silk duponi with small blue and white stripes and ruffle details on the top and it’s versatile enough for just about any event. I wore it this past weekend with mint pumps and paired it with a lavender/mint combo clutch.

With the summer evenings drastically cooling down, I’ve already started wearning pieces from my fall wardrobe for night outs. This past weekend, as I went out for an afternoon function, I opted for a sleevless yellow and orange top and wore a purple blazer to transition into the night.
A crisp button down shirt is a woman’s 9-5 wardrobe staple that’s perfect for the office and for a weekend casual look. Most women have button downs in the basic white, black and perhaps a sprinkle of color in their closet. My favorite button down to date is this bold blue and white stripe number that’s almost reminiscent of a menswear shirt I would find in my husband’s closet. This shirt is definitely part of the power suit uniform, but looks office chic when worn with a colored bottom.
I purchased 4 shirts from Banana Republic button downs simply based on fit. The shirts are made from non-wrinkle fabric and offers a slim fit along the arms and torso. Check out this shirt on the link above.
Camouflage print has a masculine and edgy look to it and worn best when mixed with feminine pieces. With this eye catching print I kept it simple and paired it witth soft colors with a beige top and a blush blazer allowing the shorts to remain the focal point of the whole look.

Some of my weekday afternoons are spent either working out or dining out. This past Monday I spent the evening having dinner with hubby and decided to wear something that was comfortable and chic. I have a confession to make….I love jogging pants. I know the trend is at least 3 years old now but it’s become a classic in my wardrobe. My go to weekend look when shopping or just hanging with friends includes jogging pants and sandals. Not only are they comfortable but they’re a perfect alternative to jeans and I love that you can dress them up or down. For this dinner outing, I decided to ditch the sandals and opted for a pair of heeled sandals.
The best part about this trend? They’re available in a variety of price points. This pair was purchased at Forever 21 for $27.80. What do you think of this look?
This past Sunday, I spent the afternoon at brunch celebrating a friend’s birthday in the city with a few of her other closest friends. I decided to opt for color blocking since purple and blue prove to be such a beautiful combination. Since the shorts are a bit high waisted, I added a gold belt to add dimension to the colors and define the waist.
