Metallic in the Workplace

Metallic in the Workplace
Hello Loves!

A subtle metallic style piece is one of my favorite ways to slightly spruce up an everyday work outfit. It gives that shimmer without being too much in your face. I thrifted this light pink metallic top from thredUP. The original price was $24.00 and I bought it for $11.99. I love the pink with the cream dress pants because it’s a classy color combo that won’t have HR chasing you down the hall. Also, the sleeves are skin tight, which kind of feels like spanx for the arms!

My number one rule for wearing metallics is to not let it overpower the work outfit. Even though you may want to have it be the star of the show, sometimes it can come off as tacky. It should be a fun add-on, not a screaming piece that takes the attention away from the entire outfit.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day 🙂

love, gaonou

Hello Loves!

This blog post is sponsored by Skylar. All opinions are my own.

For the month of May, Skylar sent over their new ‘Vintage Rose’ perfume. It is the perfect sweet, bubbly perfume for all my girly gals out there! I love the ‘Magic Bloom’ perfume sent to me last month, however, ‘Vintage Rose’ is more of my scent. I remember my sister sniffing ‘Vintage Rose’ and the first words that came out of her mouth was, “Yep, this is you”. Perfume is more than a scent, it is a sense of identity. I love that ‘Vintage Rose’ has become a part of my everyday story, especially since I can relate to ‘her’ story.

Skylar provides the best perfumes that are naturally made! I have tested out their Scent Club membership for two months now and my experience have exceeded all expectations. Each month, a new perfume is created and given a story to connect with consumers. “Vintage Rose” celebrates the friendship between two women who support one another through everything unconditionally.

If you love to try out new perfumes like me, definitely check out Skylar’s Scent Club to receive a new roller perfume each month. These monthly perfumes are limited edition. Make sure you either sign up to be a member or purchase the product before the end of the month. The last day to purchase ‘Vintage Rose’ is May 31st, grab one before it’s gone!

The Best Work Outfit | Pant Suit

The Best Work Outfit | Pant Suit
Hello Loves!

It is often a struggle trying to figure out a style outfit for work. One that will always be in your favor is a pant suit! The two-piece matching set continues to be a thriving trend from corporate to street style outfits. What I love about pant suits are the different forms and functions it comes in. You can wear it with a more masculine taste with the shoulder pads or add a feminine touch to it with fun floral prints. Pant suits are being redesign to cater to fashionistas who love wearing shorts or skirts over pants.

I thrifted this Ann Taylor pant suit for $20! If you want to hop on the pant suit trend wagon without paying over $100, definitely check out your local thrift store. You may be surprise on the style finds you’ll score.

For this look I wanted to add a feminine touch, which I did so by adding a beret and colors like red and pink. I love mixing different style elements to create an outfit story of my own. Pant suits can be styled in both a professional and casual way. I went with a more professional route adding a bow-tie blouse and heels. If you are more of a casual gal, a white t-shirt and sneakers would definitely be just as cute!
