Can I just start by saying I’m nowhere near ready for the holidays! Wearing festive colors gets me in the spirit though. I decided to sport this Ted Baker embroidered suit I found last year on 6pm.com. I love the neon stitching – what do you think?
Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday Season!

When in doubt, go with red! I always hear that about lipstick, but why not about an outfit?
I personally am not a huge fan of red although there is something about the color that makes you feel more confident and sexy. I recently found this bell-sleeved shirt at Nordstrom Rack, which is less than $30. At first, I thought it was a little pretentious but now I realize that it’s actually quite wearable. You can style any similar top like this with white pants, skinny jeans, pencil skirt or even over a bodycon dress. I guarantee you will love all of these looks.
Here, I am wearing these Res jeans I got at Nasty Gal last year. They are still available here for only $53 and they fit great. Finally, I am relying on my vintage Ted Baker bag to complete the outfit and voila!

As you know I’m a huge fan of versatile pieces – outfits you can dress up or down and wear for multiple different occasions. This black Asos culotte jumpsuit fits the description perfectly. Not to mention that it’s under $25. I’m often on the hunt for cute outfits that are work-appropriate, affordable and unique. Asos fitting can be tricky, but once you try a couple items you’ll have the sizing down. I scored this and a few other pieces during the Memorial Day Weekend sales. I can’t wait to share them with you! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the styling of this outfit with my favorite Ted Baker floral pumps and Kate Spade quilted bag.

I’ve always had a preference towards larger handbags although the rule states that petite women should carry smaller purses. I love having a few items handy and I never leave the house without them. That’s why a nice tote is a must-have in my closet! There will be plenty of space for a notebook or iPad, your daily makeup products, as well as a couple other random items. Now, take a look at the items I always like to have in my bag.
Aside from smart tech devices, I love big wallets that fit just about anything. This Ted Baker one below is my favorite wallet of all times! It’s beautiful and pretty unique, and has got me quite a few compliments every times I take it out. The next item – a French perfume, Diptyque Philosykos, is a signature smell I recently discovered. It is on the strong side, but I usually save it for special occasions. A bold lipstick is another beauty must-have. The best part is that with a bright lip you can get away with minimal makeup. Speaking of beauty, every girl knows that a nice pair of sky-high heels always stands out! That’s why you need to do your feet a favor and try Compeed, a new solution for relieving blister pain instantly. The Blister Cushions featured bellow have hydrocolloid technology that fits like a second skin and stays on all day long. Lastly, my selfie stick has got me covered at work events, social outings and family time.
