My Style: Peplum Dress

I’ve been working remotely the past few weeks and trying my hardest to continue to get dressed every day. It’s been tempting to stay in my pajamas or some version of a tee and leggings look, but getting dressed up makes me feel that much more productive with my day! This vertical striped lace-up ruffle hem dress is light and breezy, which is definitely needed in the August heat (and it has pockets – I repeat, it has pockets). I upgraded my go-to Birks with these flatform sandals. I never thought I’d see the day when I’d cave and pick up a pair. However; they are easy to wear and go with everything!

Home Office Update


The Brunette One Home Office

Target Tufted Rolled Arm Chaise // DIY Side Table (tutorial coming soon!) // Spine Bookshelf // Walls Need Love Mural

My office is inching closer and closer to being done (for now). There’s been a lot of progress since this post, and especially this post when I first debuted my mini office tour. I painted all the trim, baseboards, and doors. After the trim was completed, I painted 3 of the 4 walls in a bright white from Sherwin Williams. Last, but certainly not least, I installed this beautiful mural from Walls Need Love. I can’t wait to show off the entire space in the coming weeks, stay tuned!

My Style: Hollow Lace Dress

I’ve been looking for a lavender hollow lace dress ever since I spotted Damsel In Dior sporting one on her trip to Hong Kong. I love how she dressed hers down with slides and a jean jacket. The cut-outs make this dress a bit fancier in my mind, but I can definitely see it dressed down with flats and a sweater or jacket. A neutral clutch and heels makes this a perfect summer wedding outfit. PS. This hollow lace dress is under $35 – such a steal!
