Nicolette Mason for Modcloth

How adorable is my lovely friend Nicolette Mason’s collection for ModCloth? I mean - cute trend-forward and vintage-inspired pieces in straight and plus sizes - what more could you ask for?

I immediately snatched up the Take Charm Jacket and coordinating Intrepid Attitude Pants.  This jacket is such amazing quality - I’ve honestly never been so impressed by an item from ModCloth.  The knit material is stretchy but also fully lined. The pants are also amazing - stretchy in all the right places, narrow modern cut legs.

This great suit can be worn to work but also works as a great going out set with some pumps and flashy jewelry. I highly recommend it.

And sorry about my short absence - I just crashed hard after the wedding and I’ve been dealing with some health stuff. Check out my day-to-day goings on at instagram

Outfit 1.9 Black is Back

It is no secret that I love black. I’m pretty sure I am incapable of wearing an outfit that does not have at least one piece of black clothing in it, and let’s get real, it’s rare for me to wear an outfit that has even one piece of NON-black clothing in it (NO SHAME IN THAT GAME).

I love this though! These oxfords instantly make any outfit look business professional, especially when paired with a button up. This is also one of my more “masculine” looks (that sweater is from the men’s section of Macy’s and I loooove it!), which I am still struggling to get a hang of at work, but love when I can actually make it look good.

How do y’all manage to wear more masculine attire to work without having to wear a suit and tie every day?!
