All Navy Everything

I had dinner with some girlfriends last week and they brought up a really good point. It’s something I’ve definitely thought of before, but TBH, I kinda forgot. They can’t wear jeans to work! So even though they love my outfits and are able to shop some of them, they said they wanted more looks for the office too (but that still looked cute slash on trend). SO, it got…

Though I don't do a ton of career posts on the site, I do get a lot of questions about careers in general. So I'm going to do my best to start writing more about career tips, y'all. I promise!

How To Be The MVP Employee

When it comes to work, there are two types of people. Those who meet expectations and those who exceed them. The former - those who simply get it done - are great, reliable, hard workers. They meet expectations and complete tasks in a timely manner. All good things obviously. But then there are the latter; those who take things to another level. Who not only get the job done, but go above and beyond. These are the employees that advance in their careers, stick out amongst their peers, and ultimately become almost indispensable.

Snappy Casual – White Blazer & Comfy Culottes

Today's outfit is one of my favorites as of late - it's a little different than my usual getup in that it's a little more "snappy" (is that a word? I mean like "dressed up"? I guess). But whatever the case, I LOVE it. I usually put together my outfits by starting with one item and then building a look around it, considering the weather, occasion and what I'll be up to. So for this look, I wanted to experiment with color and tried a few different tops - instead of just going for the obvious: aka white. I could have easily paired a white silk tank with these pant sand it would have looked great (right?). But I wanted to challenge myself - I've been doing that a lot lately and it's been fun.
