Life is tough but one thing is sure putting yourself down won’t make it any easier. Being in your 20s is one weird, wild emotional roller coaster. Sure, we all have our bad days everything goes wrong, nothing seems to go your way and you are just not feeling good enough but it stings just a little more when you are trying to get your life together. Everything feels like it’s one mistake away from falling apart. I have been told countless times how life is easier when you are in your 20s like life is one big party because you have less responsibilities. But when you have dreams, goals, ambitions and you are jobless wilting at the weight of your frustrations and expectations is not only possible but an inevitability! It’s been one year since I completed campus and everything is constantly changing some great, some not so good and others downright ugly! Personally, I found it jarring how unprepared I was for the “real world”. Clearly there is SO much that we experience after graduation that I would have been so grateful to learn before that day came. Here are some of the most important things I’ve learned so far some of which I wish someone told me and not just about getting married or having kids which was covered extensively in my sociology lectures! Thank you! Continue reading “Lessons Learned Chasing Life in My 20s”

Ola! Mon’Amie,

I believe that when it comes wardrobe essentials the classic white button-down shirt automatically earns a spot at the top of the list. It’s the real deal: the true wear anywhere staple. Tuck it in or let it loose; tie it in knots or fashion an expert cuff – you can’t go wrong with this year-round essential. Trends come and go but the versatility of the white button-down is perpetual. Continue reading “Double Trouble!”

Hola Beautiful People,

“You can never have too many pullovers” words to live by! The cowl neck sweater is perfect for those days where you want to wear a sweater that basically has a built-in circle scarf. It’s also versatile because the split sides and its  light yet warm knit easily creeps into sunny days. Super easy to throw over a pair of jeans or leggings for casual days plus its color blocked so WIN WIN! Whoever says you can’t be both warm and chic on ’em rainy days has not met this sweater!

Viva la LBD!

Hey Loves

Karl Lagerfeld famously said:’ one is never overdressed or under-dressed with a little black dress.” And I couldn’t agree more it’s pretty hard to go wrong in this classic piece! One of the things I love about the lbd is its simplicity and sophistication. What’s more I can’t think of one occasion in which the black dress won’t have you covered. It’s one of those pieces that I believe every woman should have in her arsenal! Continue reading “Viva la LBD!”

Classic with a twist

It’s Friday night so I will keep it short and sweet!
The classic office look is probably the most common and easiest way to dress for the office regardless of your job but also the most likely to get you not only feeling bored but looking the part as well. Adding that dose of style can be a little challenging especially if you work at a place where casual smart is not an option! Continue reading “Classic with a twist”

Greet you all,

Lemme start by saying that I now understand why leather pants are a winter staple! The heavy and uncomfortable material can make a heat rash look like a welcome luxury. The idea of wearing leather on a hot day sounds about as delightful as sporting an open-back dress in the dead of winter. Leather is sexy and it’s great for going in and out of air conditioned buildings but you can only tolerate so much heat. This is a look perfect for the cold season when the sun goes down and comes back up months later. Continue reading “L e a t h e r|G r e y”
