Five Closet Essentials for Every Woman

Getting dressed doesn’t have to be complicated, but how many times have you gone into your closet and said I have nothing to wear? Personally I like clothes and I like having a closet full of clothes but I recognize that there is such a thing of too much of a good thing and too much can make it overwhelming. 
I find myself telling myself I “need” more than I actually need (pretty dresses are my weakness) but when I’m really serious about it I find that there are a few key pieces that I really do need in my closet at all times in order to make all the other outfits work. I’ve worked in formal corporate environments and super casual just don’t come here in a tank top and flip flops environment and these pieces transcend not only various work environments but are perfect for the weekends too. 
1. Black Pants  A pair of black pants can take you anywhere - work, school, running errands, out to dinner. Personally I’m a fan of a slim fit ankle pant because it think it’s not too formal for a…

A new Mrs Box for a new ring

When I got engaged in 2015 I saw the most beautiful ring box on instagram and I had to have one. The Mrs Box is a handmade, velvet vintage style ring box perfectly for not only keeping your ring safe when you're not wearing it but also let's be real - looking pretty.

How to Style a White Dress for Summer

Ok, so the official first day of summer isn't until later this month but with temps already in the 90s It's already summer as far as I'm concerned. Sometimes I struggle with summer attire because I still spend my Monday - Friday at the office so shorts and tanks just aren't on my radar but I'm trying to do a better job of going sleeveless and wearing more summery colors. Since traditionally white is worn from Easter to Labor day (yes, I still follow this rule) I try to get as much wearing white in as possible during the hot summer months. I know a lot of plus size women shy away from white but I say go for it!

This year I got a new white dress from Jessica London that is perfect for looking cute on the weekend but also appropriate for the office. To keep my white dress from looking boring I like to pair with some statement pieces - here I am carrying a bright and sunny bag and wearing a fun statement necklace. Ordinarily I wouldn't wear a statement necklace i…
