Do you ever head to happy hour or dinner out after work? Then this post on styling black denim is for you! About once every two weeks, my husband and I end up meeting for dinner out. On those days, I like wearing an outfit that I can change or add simple touches to in order to take it from work to “play.” During my “back to school” shopping experience with Banana Republic Factory, I tried on their high-rise skinny denim for the first time. Ladies – the fit does not disappoint! The fabric feels fabulous and the fit is slimming. I totally appreciate that the denim is dark, thick material and suitable to wear any day of the week.

Hot pink will brighten up anyone’s day! Today I am featuring a dress from The Mint Julep Boutique. It has a light, airy material and a nice bright hue… pair it with neon accessories like this necklace, and you are ready for summer!

This dress is comfortable and modest for work with the higher neckline and the length hitting near the knee. It has the cutest criss-cross design going down the sides. I always love little details like that! I could also see myself throwing on a jacket over … Read More

May is here, so my top 4 April #ootd’s (outfits of the day) are posted on my Instagram.
