Dress For Success!

Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope your week has been fabulous so far! Since my last post about wanting to become a fashion stylist, I have been hard at work reinventing myself and what I want out of life. As much as I love being a mommy that only has to work two days a week, I need more in life. I have decided to go back and finish my degree in Business Marketing. Well, Im not positive about which business major but for now that's the one! I went to college for a year and half before I decided to go to hair school and have always regretted not finishing. I just want that sense of accomplishment and something to fall back on if I were ever to get injured and not be able to do hair anymore. I have been thinking a lot about having a "professional" career and building a huge empire. For me, it's always go big or go home! Now that I have a new passion in life and game plan of exactly what I want, I need my wardrobe to reflect that. One of my favorite quotes for the workplace has always been, "don't dress for the job you have, dress for the job you want." Those are a few words of wisdom that really go a long way with me. So, with that said, I will be shopping for tons of pencil skirts from now on. They are perfection for a woman's body and are extremely sexy while being 100% professional. Throw on a tucked-in chiffon top with a curve hugging pencil skirt, top it off with some stilettos and you have a head turning look that everyone will love. Here are some of my favs right now, hope you love them as much as I do!

It's about to get hot in here!

Hey you are at work......that means work it! Try some of these looks out yourself to see which fit and length is best for your body. All pics are from duh, Pinterest.

Dreaming of Style

My love of fashion and style is something that is infused in all aspects of my life. Whether it's my clothing, home, cooking, or anything else you can think's all about the presentation! I dream of becoming a huge fashion stylist like Rachel Zoe and traveling the world finding the most amazing pieces of art {clothing} ever made. Could there ever be a better job then shopping and making people look and feel beautiful? I truly believe that your closet should be like an art collection. It takes many many years to search and acquire those special pieces that you will hold on to forever. I have pieces of clothing that I bough back in high school that I will NEVER get rid of. Other then my son, my closet is my greatest creation! My husband seriously thinks Im insane.

Now don't get me wrong, I love love love my job as a hair stylist. I 100% believe the quote, "If love what you do, you will never work a day in your life." I don't know who first said it, but they are a genius! Although I already love my job and feel insanely blessed, I want more. Hey, it's ok to have dreams! Maybe, just maybe, I will one day have a huge empire like Rachel Zoe but for now I can watch all the gorgeous designs walk down the red carpets and live vicariously through them! So here they are, my fav red carpet moments. I'm sure there will be many more to come!

Um hi, I just died!

Bananas! {Thanks for my new vocabulary Rachel Zoe}

Always love me some Megan Fox and this is my fav

Seriously Delish, I want to eat this red number

HATE her but love the chic black with amazing emerald earrings

Why couldn't I look like this while I was prego?

Love the short white with this FABULOUS belt!

I hope you all enjoyed dreaming with me and did you notice white is my fav red carpet color!? Happy Hump Day Loves :)

Fun in the Sun!

So I have been a total slacker lately and have not posted in like forever! Im sorry but this summer weather has been leading me straight to the pool. My little snuggle man is a total fish and would swim from the second he wakes up to the second he goes to bed if I would let him! All this fun in the sun makes me search for new and fun swim suits to get my tan on in. Here are a few of the suits I am in love with. I hope you enjoy and I swear to be better about posting, here is to a great start of your week tomorrow!
