Urban with a Touch of Chanel

 Outfit Details:

shoes: Converse via DSW

This is one of my favorite outfits to date! I actually ended up purchasing the top, not the bag though. The bag is in pristine condition however and if you have been looking for a Chanel purse for a fraction of the retail price then your dreams have been answered!!

I love the contrast between the chic elegance of Chanel with my funky chucks and the urban setting for this shoot. The top I got has easily become one of my fave layering pieces.

On a side note... For those of you who received my newsletter today I hope you enjoyed it and are excited for the next installment in 2 weeks!! I would love to hear your feedback below!!

Wedding News: Choosing the Caterer

Caroline Street Catering

Before starting the fun part of finding the caterer, which is the tasting, I did a lot of research online. I found out menus and pricing and other little details that would go into the decision process. In the end we decided to just go ahead with two catering companies to schedule tastings, so as not to make it harder to decide in the end.

Check out the full post on Capitol Romance!!!

Stay tuned for more planning news to come!

Corner Office

Outfit Details:

top: Liz Claiborne
skirt: vintage
ring: vintage
earrings: vintage

shoes: (mine) Sole Society (similar)

Last week was a super busy whirlwind of events and gigs for work. Whenever I have weeks like that (or months) I just want to put on my pjs and sleep for a few days to re-energize my business drive. To be honest this does happen a lot; but lately I have been able to take the usual day off and then I put on my big girl panties and get back into the 'boss lady" swing of things. 

Dressing like a high powered exec helps in my motivation process and imagining I have a gorgeous corner office to conquer the world of makeup and fashion! So follow my lead and when you are feeling tired and drab...take a nap and then get that pencil skirt on and pop on some sky high heels and get to work! 

What do you do to stay motivated, when you are feeling tired and ready to hibernate for a bit?
