Life is all about balance and finding yours. Specifically, work-life balance. We live in the anti-9-to-5 age, but let's just say what that really means. From the moment we wake up in the morning to the minute we close our eyes, we're working. And while setting yourself up to have the best future possible is great, it's also important to live in the moment and not take life so seriously.
Coco Note: Still working on that last part.
I don't know about you, but after an 8-14 hour work day, the last think I want to do is go home just to change my clothes and head out again. Segue into my point, mastering day-to-night styling is a major key.
It's Friday, and you know what that means. It's Jumpsuit Friday! This particular jumpsuit is NOT office-appropriate, which made styling this look an especially challenging task. It is, however, perfect for a Friday night out on the town. The deep v-neck halter top is super sexy, and the wide, flowy legs of the trousers really elongate the leg.
Coco Note: I could use a little help in the leg department, anyway.
The pinstripe pattern of this ultra-sexy jumpsuit is really what makes it an appropriate day-to-night piece. It has a professional, bawsy feel....just with a not-so-professional cut. Enter, button up. This jumpsuit was practically begging for a white collared shirt. Pinstripe is a classic, especially in black and white, so why not pair it with another classic?
To go with the unconventional cut of the jumpsuit, I wore a slightly large button up, rolled up the sleeves and gave it a more relaxed feel. It's Friday, after all! Since we're still transitioning into Fall, white mules seemed very appropriate.

I'm seriously all about ultra-feminine and flirty looks this season. Summer '17 is giving me serious modern-day A Midsummer Night's Dream vibes.
Before I get all Shakespearian on you, let me put it in layman's terms: give me all the whites, ruffles and florals.
I was never a huge fan of floral print (put the torches and pitchforks down), until I figured out the trick to choosing a print that works for me.
Everyone's always showing love to the ever-popular LBD, but when it comes to key wardrobe pieces for the summer, our go-to just doesn't cut it.
With all the boat parties and All-White events (thanks a lot, Puff Daddy) I get invited to in the summer, I'm always on the hunt for the perfect LWD; that's Little White Dress to you.
I have a saying that I pretty much live by. It's my go-to response when people tell me that I seem to be "living the life," but also a reminder to myself.

It isn't a new concept, but in today's era of Social Media and doing what I do, putting it this way really makes the overall message relatable.
I thought I'd do another video-style OOTD and give you guys the one word of advice that saves me from turning it down when I feel like I may be doing too much...
I thought we'd try something different and do this post in video form! If you like this style, make sure you head to my YouTube channel and give it a thumbs up! Feel free to subscribe while you're at it!
I was never a huge fan of a traditional white-collared shirt. Something about it made me feel like I was going on an interview, no matter what I paired it with. As trends have evolved and fashion has gotten more daring, however, I've find new and alternative styles that have shifted my perspective on this classic, wardrobe staple.
The off-the-shoulder trend has pretty much taken over all 4 seasons for the past year or so, and it doesn't seem to be relinquishing control anytime soon. As we continue to [kind of] transition into Spring, I thought it would be helpful to show you one very trendy top styled 3 very chic ways. Although the looks are similar, they each give off a different vibe and can we worn for a different occasion.
"50 inch screen, money green leather sofa..."
That's what I thought of when I walked out with this outfit on.
We often associate green with colder seasons, like Winter and Fall, but it's a great color to help transition your wardrobe and style into the warmer seasons. It is pretty warm in NYC this weekend, but since we aren't out of the clear just yet, I decided to layer this look a bit more.
Hey friend. Can we talk for a minute? There's something I need to tell you.
I've been wearing sneakers.
I know, I know. But I can't help myself! Let me explain....
I've been wanting to get into the sneaker game for the past few years, but never found a pair I truly loved and could actually find. So when I visited the Nike Outlet a few months ago, I picked up one sensible pair and one loud pair and, well, here we are.
At this current moment, the end of one of the busiest and most hectic weekends I've had in a long time, I feel the most blessed and grateful. Not because it's over, but because I was there.
Gearing up for the launch of Rupture Marketing, of which I am a co-founder, I traveled to Washington, D.C. to work with the Embassy to Haiti. After 20 hours of work and packing, 4 hours of driving, 3 rest stops and a 30-minute nap at a service area in Maryland, I arrived and dove into a packed schedule and a busy city. I went straight to work.
By now we should be knee-deep in knee-highs and wrapping ourselves in the thickest knit sweaters mankind has ever known. Instead, it's 80 degrees and I for one, am confused. For lack of a better (less-offensive) term, this Indian summer is not for me. Mother Nature, you're playing games.
