Weekender

Greetings, all! TGIF 🙂

As we head into the weekend, I wanted to share a hand-picked outfit rooted in one of my favorite colors – yellow. The bright hue never fails to put me in a good mood. Try out this polished look for a happy hour and/or night out with friends. Between a peplum waist, pointed-toe pumps and slimming jeans (these J Brand’s are the BEST – I have two pairs!), these pieces create an elongated, feminine silhouette that’s especially flattering.

Cheers to a great weekend!

Work Week Wardrobe: Follow the Tracks

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Hope your week has been great so far. Dive into the second half with an outfit that combines comfort and a classic twist. I dressed up a comfy “Perfect Shirt” from J. Crew with a full skirt to make my flannel appropriate for the office. 🙂 Pumps, a few low-key baubles and a vintage bag complete this look that’s versatile, polished, and fun.

Here’s to a fabulous rest of your week!

Work Week Wardrobe: A Pop of Pink

October is a special time of year for so many reasons, but perhaps most significant is its designation as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To show your support for all those touched by the disease, don’t forget to integrate a pop of pink into your wardrobe. Whether it be a pencil skirt, cardigan, or simple sheath, there’s never been a better time of year to show your allegiance to one of fashion’s most feminine shades.

Think pink,

Work Week Wardrobe: Color Me Purple

Happy Monday! As you might have noticed, I’m not the only one with a new look this week. Cocoa & Lace is modeling a new layout, designed to showcase each post’s content in a more clean, elegant manner.

Similarly, this week’s office attire starts with a simple foundation in order to highlight the main attraction: the color purple. Nude heels keep the look grounded in neutrality while ensuring that the purple peplum dress gets all the attention. The addition of a green bag compliments the bold color palate and plays up the fun factor without overdoing it. Rich tonal jewelry adds the perfect finishing touch for a dazzling week ahead.

Have a great day!
