Calming colors for busy days

-{I've been searching for the perfect coin purse and finally found it!}-

Living to the extreme isn't always a good way to live. You don't want to overindulge in your favorite ice cream every day or go out with your girlfriends every night, you'd get sick and exhausted! I have reached my limit; the past few weeks have been over booked (not complaining but I am working on scheduling only a max. amount of clients a week), two new partnerships have been started, and I have been doing paperwork and answering emails any free time I have (including the middle of the night). There is nothing I would rather do than be a business owner and stylist, but I finally came to the realization that I need a more balanced life.
The pieces I have been drawn too lately are saturated in color. I have shied away from jewel tones, bright neons, and loud prints. Right now I am wearing and gravitating towards corals, pale yellows, more natural hues. Here's to a week of learning to manage my love for fashion and my life outside of work, trust me, it's not as easy as it sounds!

It's all in the details

-{Sugar cookies that are chic and decadent}-

I have taken time to listen, really appreciate and enjoy what I eat, what I see, and what I do. It's always the little things in life that make the difference. The packaging to a delicious dessert, the appetizer before the meal, even the coffee we drink to start off our day. When I was in the waiting room waiting to go on set of Q13, I began to feel nervous. Just I began to remind myself, "This is what I've been waiting for, I know exactly what I'm talking about",  it then all became clear. It's not just the big moments, but the experience and details that lead up to each milestone that really make life worthwhile. 

-{I just couldn't wait for the entree. The food was authentic, the service was excellent, couldn't have asked for more}-

-{My time to give advice to women about online shopping on Q13}-

-{We just bought an espresso machine, but nothing tastes better than coffee from a local cafe}-

-{Franco Sarto's interpreter helped me communicate my thoughts. I own a suede high heeled, platform boot and they are the ONLY pair my bunions can handle}-

Signature Style: Business Casual

Business casual for some means black pants paired with a black blazer and black heels. I was determined to show a group of professionals that this does not always have to be the case. Here are four fabulous business casual looks that are stylish yet office appropriate. 

 Ann Taylor Purple Cowl Neck Top $48
 Ann Taylor Denim: Modern Fit Trouser Leg $88

A good alternative to Casual Fridays is wearing a trouser cut denim. Everyone in the office will be asking you where you purchased them!

 Ann Taylor Metallic Animal Print Top $78
Ann Taylor Grey Trouser $38.99

This blouse adds glamour to a neutral colored trouser pant. For warmth, simply add a pastel colored cardigan in mint, coral, or lavender.

Ann Taylor Blue Silk Button Up $118
Ann Taylor Black Stretch Cropped Pant $88
Kendra Scott Gold Necklace Nordstrom $69.99

What I love about this silk button up is that it skims the body just right and doesn't look or feel restrictive like the cotton button ups you would normally think to wear to work. These black pants add an ultra modern take to a trouser cut, black pant.

Jessica Simpson Bold Pattern Dress Nordstrom $128
Gibson Black Blazer Nordstrom $88   
All Outfits: Shoes Vince Camuto Nordstrom $88

There is nothing more chic and beautiful than a dress. It is effortless and feminine. To make it business appropriate throw a soft blazer over the look and to tone down the color and print.
