Hello all! Hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday and are off to a productive week. After a good deal of baking and catching up on sleep, I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things myself — Cocoa & Lace being top on my list.
This week’s office-approved look is simple and sharp. Pair a bright blouse with a classic pencil skirt, some killer heels, and a great bag and you’ll power your way to the weekend in no time. 🙂
Happy Wednesday – we’re half way there! Embrace the little details in your look for the rest of the week; from ornamental jewelry to leather adornments, classic pieces get a boost from eye-catching tweaks. Don’t be afraid to add a splash of color to a monochromatic ensemble for a fun twist.
This past weekend was such a treat – I was lucky enough to spend my birthday in New York City with my boyfriend and best friends. Miraculously, I beat Sandy to her mischief, too, returning home today to spend what’s left of my birthday weekend with my family.
As I paused to “make a wish” amid the glow of my (gasp) 23 birthday candles, I was overwhelmed with one clear notion: I am blessed. To my family and friends both near and far, thank you for sending such love my way. I am indeed a lucky girl.
Below you’ll find just a few images capturing a whirlwind of a weekend – enjoy!
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.
