OFFICE STYLE | JUMPSUIT and CONTRAST BLAZER

A great option to wearing slacks to work is going with a jumpsuit. If you're hippy or have an abundant lower half, opt for a blazer. I went with a blazer with contrast for added character and finished off with lucite statement necklace and slingback booties.

SIZING: In the jumpsuit, I'm wearing a US14, but could've went with a 12 instead since it stretchy and tends to bunch up without adding a belt.  My amazing stripe blazer is in a size small.

OFFICE READY TO WEEKEND CHIC | GAP SLIM CITY PANTS



Today's post shows how to wear one piece in two ways. As many of you may have noticed, I tend to purchase pieces that are transitional-from the office to dinner and sometimes, to weekend casual. I find that items like these become wardrobe staples and helps eliminate the I have nothing to wear mornings.  With the weather warming up but not quite there, I'm reaching out for my new addition to the wardrobe, Gap Factory's Slim City pants. These pants are so comfortable, universally flattering and come in both solid colors and patterns. They're the perfect length to wear with pumps and flats.

My office look consists of one of my workplace essentials- a crisp button down shirt with a color contrasting collar and a lightweight sweater layered atop. Since the pants are a light bluish gray shade, I went with pieces in similar color scheme finishing off with a pair of bold heels.

The weekend look is something that can also be worn to the office on a casual Friday, (depending on the workplace of course). The sneakers can easily be swapped with chic flats. My Gap denim jacket is a go-to on the weekends during mild temperatures and pairs nicely with my Slim City pants.

Gap Factory is a great gem for everyone in family as they carry men, women and children clothing at great price points. My pants were under $40!

Now until April 1st, you get 15% off your purchase excluding clearance in the US and Canada.  In-store only, present code: SlimCityEa to cashier at checkout. Find your closest factory store here.

FORMAL WEAR | ROSE GOLD BADGLEY MISCHKA SEQUINS GOWN

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links.


This past Saturday, I attended my company's annual black tie gala. Many of you who either work in higher-education or are students in grad school, law school or medical school might have these functions and know exactly what I'm referring to. Like clockwork, every year, I wait til last minute to purchase a gown that ends up hanging in my closet after one wear. It was either that or go the route many of my colleagues have gone: buy it, wear it, than return it. I never went that way, mainly because of the high uncertainty of actually getting refunded. Needless to say, Ebay had become my outlet to reselling my 'used' gowns until I discovered Rent the Runway.

Rent the Runway allows you to rent high-end garments and accessories for a fraction of the price. Ever dreamed of wearing a Valentino, Carolina Herrera, or Badgley Mischka gown? Well that dream can easily become a reality with RTR. The BEST part about it is, they provide plus size options in many of these higher end gowns as well.  

With so many options and designers available to me, it was pretty hard to choose which gown I wanted to go with. I knew I wanted it to be a showstopper, but which showstopper. I ultimately, narrowed it down to two sequins beauties by Badlgey Mischka- the Sound The Alarm and the Rolling in the Glitz. Scroll down to see which I picked!

This gown had me feeling like the belle of the ball. The rose gold shade went perfectly with my brown skin tone. Also, the rusching and halter top was very flattering to my frame. Because formal gowns sizing are different to street sizes, Rent the Runway allows you to choose the gown of your choice in 2 sizes.  You're able to schedule your rental months in advance as well as same week (if the gown is available). I ordered my gown online on Tuesday and received it Thursday! Fortunately for me, there is a RTR boutique in town so I was able to return it directly. However, they do provide UPS prepaid packaging that can easily be dropped off.

Aside from the formal events (prom, weddings, etc),  RTR dresses are ideal for a special date, meeting, holiday, etc and allows you save money at that. Whatever the occasion, Rent the Runway has spectacular styles in every color, size, length, and fit you can imagine. And don't forget, if you're a new customer, you will get $25 off your first order of $75+ when you use code: 25OFFNEW.

SIDE NOTE: I recently started using Amla Legend's Silky Blowout hair care line and loving it!! I always go to the salon when I want my natural hair blown out because doing it myself is such a tedious act. Last week I gave it a try at home.  I was quite pleasantly surprised at how manageable and tangle free my hair was with these products!! Not to mention, my curls were so bouncy and lustrous. Stay tuned!
