As professional women, one of our (many) office struggles is often appropriate work outfits that don't make getting dressed for the office a daunting task. I mean, your wardrobe should not suck the life out of you. Should you have to sacrifice style for status? Absolutely not.

Day 4: #iSlayAllMay | leopard-print cape + OTK boots

Day 2: #iSlayAllMay | pink fuzzy skirt + off-the-shoulder sweater

All black and a pop of pastel, where have we seen this before? Yes, I know: Real original, Coco.

Matching Set + Bandage Top | #MarchMadness

I love coordinates. The idea and look of a matching set, or a monotone look, has always been appealing to me. Much like a romper, its an effortless outfit.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

Mother Nature is back with a vengeance. It. Is. Cold. 

I don't know about you, but when I hear cold weather I think of onions. 

Okay, so what I really mean is, I think of layers. It seems like labels aren't putting out warm fabrics for afforable prices, and it's not too often that you find cashmere on clearance.
