The color is truly starting to grow on me more and more this year. At a recent shopping trip, I had two wonderful girls help me find this pink romper. The moment I put it on, I felt that I could take on the world (perhaps because I felt like Elle Woods when she got accepted to law school).timeless-optimist-fashion-blog-alex-and-ani-wonder-woman-cufftimeless-optimist-fashion-blog-alli-laser-cut-peep-toe -shootieThis romper runs true to size (I am wearing it in a size S). I am not exaggerating when I say that I have been using this romper over and over for the past two weeks (with several washes as need of course lol). To complete my look, I selected a blush sandal and my favorite leather jacket. I decided to wear my Wonder Woman cuff with this look and not much more. This is a piece that has a statement all to itself.

Hi loves! I trust you all are having an amazing week. You may notice from my posts here (and on Instagram) that I really love LC Lauren Conrad. There are many reason why I love this brand but I feel I should give you a bit of back story. I promise to keep it short hehe.

Flashback six years ago, I started my second job as a cashier at Kohls. And I would end up keeping my second job for five years. What can I say, the employee discount and deals as Kohls are hard to resist. Year after year, my closet would constantly be updated with LC Lauren Conrad merchandise. While I no longer work for Kohls, I still cannot get enough of this brand.

LC Lauren Conrad is Lauren Conrad’s fashion line at Kohls. Recently, there has been a new swim and maternity line has been released to online and in store. However, LC Lauren Conrad also sells handbags, home decor, shoes and even jewelry. I am hoping that this brand considers making petite styled clothing (cough, cough with lots of love).

My printed smocked peasant top is in size S. Keep in mind that this a sheer chiffon top so you may want to wear a came under it. I like to use a cam bodysuit so that I can wear this top with a jeans or a skirt. This is certainly a piece that will be perfect to transition from summer to fall.

What are some of your favorite pieces from LC Lauren Conrad? Feel free to let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday loves! One of the perks of working as a millennial in a professional world is getting the opportunity to dress your best. But sometimes, a girl needs to slip in something comfortable. That is why I love that jogger pants have entered into women’s fashion. They are so comfortable without compromising style. 😉

My jogger pants are from Ann Taylor. In the past, I have always viewed Ann Taylor as a brand for business professional women only. During my Ann Taylor shopping event, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Ann Taylor is changing into a store that offers a wide variety of styles for women of all shapes and sizes. My low back scoop bodysuit is also from Ann Taylor (it also comes in a burgundy color – perfect for fall).

 

I decided to wear my jogger pants with sandals for some extra height. They also look great without a heel as well. Keep in mind that these pants do run true to size. I am usually a size 2 in jeans. For this look, I am wearing a size XS.

Happy Thursday loves! We still have one more month of summer – which means some of you may have some more summer weddings to attend. Now that I have reached my twenties, more and more people are getting married (so sweet and weird lol). If you have never been to a wedding as a millennial, do not fret! Here are some the of tips I have learned as a new comer to weddings.

 

To wear white or to not wear white, that is the question

It is an unwritten rule to not wear white at a person’s wedding. The idea behind this rule is that if a guest is wearing white, you are taking away from the bride’s day. Needless to say, couples are becoming more and more unconventional when it comes to their wedding day. If you are hesitant to wear white, don’t be feel silly to ask the bride whether or not she will mind (because sometimes, the bride will sincerely not care). The dress that I am wearing in these pictures can be found here. If for any reason, the bride does to want you to wear white, be respectful and rock your favorite color instead! Below are some of my favorite dresses from Banana Republic and Ann Taylor. I like to shop here because they offer petite styled clothing and their selections are timeless. 😉

 

Location, location, location

When you are trying to figure out what you should wear to a wedding, consider where it is going to be held. What you are going to wear at a wedding taking place in a church is going to be much different from a wedding that is at the beach. Also keep an eye out for the weather forecast the day of the wedding.

Shoes are a girl’s best friend

The shoes you pick to wear to a wedding are just an important as the outfit. I hate being in uncomfortable shoes at a wedding (especially after all the dancing). When in doubt, bring an extra pair of flats in dance in. I love espadrille wedges because we are super comfortable and give you some extra height. If you have a wedding outside, a thin, tall heel is not going to do you any favors! I love these wedges from Marc Fisher. You can purchase a similar pair from Marc Fisher here. If you want an option that is under $100, Steve Madden has wedges that come in 4 colors (including rose gold).

 

Keep it classy 

I say this with love, not judgement. Remember that when you are at a wedding, you are a guest of the bride and groom’s special day. Be respectful. When you select your outfit, pick dresses and tops that flatter your body without looking too casual (showing a lot of skin is great for summer outings and festivals, not so much for weddings). Nonetheless, you never know who you are going to meet (at any social gathering). As such, you want to present yourself with grace and poise at all times.

Hi loves! Many of you may not know this, but my favorite color is red. As such, it is my go-to color when I add a pop of lipstick to my look. I know I am not alone with this, but I have SEVERAL shades of red lipsticks from different companies (you can never have too much of a good thing right). In honor of National Lipstick Day, I wanted to share with you all my favorite red lipsticks that are both from prestige and drugstore brands.

Revlon

Revlon’s  “Love is On” lipstick is a great shade of red that is versatile for all skin types.

Stila

Stila lipsticks offer great coverage without having to reply throughout the day.

Nars

I love Nars because of their quality and the fact that they do not test their products on animals. I do find that I have to re-apply the crayon options through out the day. Nonetheless, I love the colors and coverage of this brand.

Rimmel

Kate Moss’ matte lipstick are wonderful! The shades of red from this line is creamy and does not dry your lips throughout the day.

Lorac

I can’t say enough about this brand Lorac. Their liquid matte lipsticks offer great pigmentation without drying out your lips. If you want lighter coverage, their matte crayons are soft and come in a wide variety of colors.
