Transitioning Office Style to Off-Duty


Even though I don’t exactly work in a corporate atmosphere anymore, I still find plenty of occasions where I need to look very professional. So, I decided to share with all you 9-to-5-ers how you can take your uber professional pant suit and break it up for a polished look at the office (no suits required) or even your day off.

Date in Black Lace

IMG_6498I am a very modest dresser by my very nature. I often opt for full coverage blouses over strappy tanks, fitted jeans rather than mini dresses but every once in a while, showing some leg is just necessary.

So for one of our first dates as a married couple, I wanted to wow my husband (eek – I still get giddy every time I call him that). A mix of sweet and sexy with black-on-black lace and leather did exactly that.

This romper is straight up dreamy! I can’t wait to style it with a chunky knit and thigh-high boots come fall.

Memories on Main


Last week, Zach and I (literally) took a stroll down memory lane, visiting my old college town for a day date. It was the perfect way to celebrate our first week of marriage by visiting all of our favorite spots and reliving some of our favorite memories.

We had to stop and get my favorite iced chai, have lunch at our frequented hole-in-the-wall sushi spot and walk down Main Street, where we lived when we first started dating.

I reached for all of my favorite casual pieces. Nude and shades of blue never disappoints and was perfect for a relaxed day date.
