  1. I am very into these day heels. I am thinking of purchasing but can’t decide on the color. I am thinking red though!
  2. Just got Charlee her very first pair of walking shoes! She got two pairs. The first from her Nana: These Stride Rights and then I got her these Naturino baby shoes in sparkly silver haha
  3. Do you guys listen to Podcasts? I am listening to My Favorite Murder, Oprah Super Soul, and Stuff you Should Know on my way to Brooklyn or when I am commuting!
  4. We just booked a long weekend in Hudson, NY in October. I am SO excited!
  5. My sister is due with her baby in 58 days and I am seriously counting the minutes!
  6. This travel high chair has been a MUST bring on every outing and vacation. It even comes with it’s very own placemat so you don’t have to worry about germs. we used it every day on vacation this past 2 weeks!
  7. Charlee gave me the biggest hug today before bed and hummed along with me while I sang her a lullaby. I wanted to freeze time.
  8. I can’t believe I am admitting this but I am really excited for Fall all of a sudden. I am SUCH a summer girl but I must admit I am kind of excited to not be in a bathing suit every weekend and to wear sweaters and for Christmas!
  9. I honestly can’t believe I have a 1 year old! We took Charlee to the park last night and she is so fearless! She went down the slide face first on her belly maybe 100 times. She’s so fun!
  10. I just got this bag and I am obsessed. It’s a dupe of a more expensive bag but looks exactly the same!

The Power Suit

I am such a suit girl I can’t even stand it. I LOVE a power suit and I always have. I remember when I went on my first real interview, I put on a suit from White House Black Market that my Mom had bought me as a gift for my college graduation. I felt like a BOSS in that suit. Well, funny story, I walked into the interview and everyone in the room was wearing shorts and t-shirts (it was a start-up hence the casual dress code) but Hey! I felt confident and my suit-wearing showed I was serious about the position and guess what?! I got the job!

Ok, all anecdotes aside, this suit is a funky and fun update on your typical power suit. I actually purchased these pieces separately and paired them together! This would be an amazing interview outfit or a fabulous outfit for a night out. Super versatile. These pants are also incredibly flattering! The high waist elongates my middle and focuses on the waist.  The crop pant also give an illusion that my legs are even longer and will do the same for every height and body type. I  have worn these pants 100 different ways already. I added this straw fedora for fun, but you may want to leave that behind if you’re headed to an interview ;)!

I added some major Power Suit Inspiration below. Maybe we can say “Suit-spiration!” ENJOY!
