I need your help!

I have to make room on my blog for some exciting new verticals (or categories).

Right now, I mostly only have fashion and beauty.

In 2017, I will be adding travel, home, and wedding. This means I need to make some room!!

I would loveeeee for you to leave a comment below with what you want to see the most of!!

  1. Work Wear
  2. Casual Wear
  3. Dresses
  4. Travel Wear
  5. Fitness Wear

By catering more posts towards what you want to see, I can better arrange the blog to show (hopefully) exactly what you are searching for!

PS. You probably saw these polka dot tights on one of my posts from last year (see it here!) I wear them allll the time to work and just out at night with dresses. They are so cute and fun and kick every outfit up a notch! Only a couple sizes left so I tagged some other options I love!

You can also see more photos of this pleated skirt here. It is long enough to wear to work and you can tuck a top into it (it is high waisted) or you can pair it with a chunky oversized sweater!

The Outfit:

Polka Dot Tights

Pleated Skirt (similar here, here and here)

Tie Neck Blouse (comes in 3 pretty colors!)

Black Booties

Velvet Box Clutch (sold out, but similar here and I LOVE this one)

Lipstick: Brave Red

    I wear scrubs to work -yuk. Not so stylish. Still I would love to see work wear, casual and travel. I can’t wait to see what changes you come up with. Congratulations on a new adventure!

    Whatever you do, please keep work wear! Most professional women spend the majority of their time in work wear, yet most blogs don’t cover it ! Or at least don’t cover it in a way that is realistic for my business casual workplace. It’s why I started following your blog so please don’t give it up!
