I’ve received many requests on showcasing some more work related outfits on the blog so today I’m sharing this stylish look that’s suitable for the office and versatile for other occasions as well. I use to work as a CPA in a Corporate setting so business casual was my wardrobe most of the week. Now that I’m my own #girlboss/owner of a fabulous boutique, I have the freedom to wear just about anything and retired my business casual wardrobe. I’m often at the office/warehouse so comfy shoes is pretty much my staple these days. Back then, I shopped at Banana Republic quite a bit and after visiting their site recently, I found that they still carry a lot of chic pieces perfect for work. I found the cutest bow button down shirt and darling red scallop skirt from Banana Republic and combined it with an old tweed blazer I had. Both of these pieces can easily be re-worn with more casual looks like jeans with the shirt or a great Fall sweater with the skirt. Although my office wear has changed, it’s fun to revisit business casual looks! I hope you enjoyed today’s post as much as I did!
My off the shoulder obsession continues and I’m in love with this new red lace off the shoulder dress! I love all of the detailing, the sleeves and the of course, the bright pop of color that goes well with Palm Springs or any Summer destination. It’s a great travel dress (the thick lace doesn’t wrinkle), especially for a fun date night on your trip. It’s a sexy and flirty dress and the lace gives it an ultra feminine touch! The husband even gave me a thumbs up on this dress ;).
I’m so petite – I should probably wear heels all the time. But being a photographer and full time boutique owner has me running around all day long. I have been on the hunt for shoes that are both comfy and stylish and found these lovely lace up flats from Zara! I love that these flats are suede and they go well with just about anything thanks to its neutral color. I found this fun dress from Topshop and I usually don’t wear red but I’m starting to love it a lot!

I’ve been really into swing dresses lately and I don’t wear red too often but I couldn’t resist this cute and comfortable number from ASOS! And the best part is it’s under $33!
On another note, I was home for only 12 out of 31 days in August so I apologize for the lack of posts lately! It’s been crazy busy but that’s a good thing, right?! I have tons of new fall items to share so check back again soon!
It’s crazy how quickly the holidays have come! I think my mind is still somewhere enjoying a coconut in Thailand =P. But with Christmas just a few days away, I teamed up with the amazingly talented Katie B and Chicwish to bring forth this festive, holiday look. I don’t always wear red, but I love wearing it for the holidays! I love this classic combination of a full skirt with a simple white top. I added some sparkly accessories and shoes for the final glamorous touches for the season.
Hope everyone is staying safe and warm and getting in the holiday spirit too!

Lately I’ve been a big fan of mixing bold colors together. I especially love this combination of hot pink and red, both of which I found from Lulu’s.com! I am kind of obsessed with these pants and they also come in hot pink, which I am seriously thinking about getting too. These pants are super comfortable but look so fabulous and dressy at the same time.
