Happy Friday + Link Love #girlboss edition


Happy Friday folks! I hope that you've had a great week and have an even better weekend planned. Speaking of great weeks, women dominated the news this week in a variety of different industries totally rocking their sphere and showing us all who runs the world. If you have spent anytime with me, you likely know how passionate I am about growing strong, female leaders in all arenas and women right now are kicking ass and taking names. In that spirit, here are some of my favorite headlines from the week.

+ How the simple act of not wearing a head scarf made a statement

+ Who are you gonna call?! Ghostbusters gets a reboot!

+ How women like Viola Davis are giving little girls everywhere the feeling that they can be 'written in' to any role

+ I love that Emma Watson means business in her involvement in #heforshe

+ The porkchop theory that is changing the face of food in NC (Having been to about 95% of these establishments, I can say if you are ever in the area, make the time to go.

+ Ivanka Trump continues to break it down as to what it is really like to be a woman who works.

+ Amal Clooney, who are you wearing?! Boom.

After you've read all of this, I have one question for you - Who Runs the World?

Hope you and yours have a lovely weekend!

Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

I love a good military-inspired look and when it was warm enough last week to rock only a sweater, I knew that this tried-and-true was dying to be pulled out.  The mix of the structure of military-inspired wear with the softness of the pleated fabric was just the perfect combo for me.

union & fifth

Today I'm thrilled to be joining Union & Fifth in their pursuit of philanthropy through fashion.  Union & Fifth is a nonprofit online designer consignment store who donates ALL of their proceeds to charity. Union & Fifth is gifting one lucky winner this gorgeous Chanel bag, as well as a chance to participate in NYFW in a few weeks! 

I know that the NorthEast is in the throws a complete snowmageddon, but I can't help but look to Spring inspired looks to pair with this classic navy beauty.  Think print mixing, soft fabrics, floral, and a touch of toughness in the baubles to pull in the chains on the bag to pull together a truly lady like but chic look.

Good luck to those who entered! Can't wait to see who wins tomorrow! And you can follow along with Union & Fifth on instagram, twitter, and facebook.

I've been searching sometime for a pair of black ripped skinnies - there is something about them that feels so right.  You can dress them up or dress them down.  I have heard the praises of Frame Denim for awhile and believe me they live up to the hype.  Another new faves of mine - new balances with a little pazzazz. Paired together served as the perfect comfortable look for tooling around town the other day.

funny valentine

With Valentine's Day just a few weeks away, I am taking full advantage of any opportunity I have to rock a good Valentine's Day theme.  This also includes finding pieces that I can bring into the Spring as well.  I've rounded up some of my fabs to nab now, but also rock through the Spring.

happy friday + link love

[via]

I'm not going to lie, this week was deceivingly crazy. Here's the good news: only a few teleconferences and a work day stand between us and the weekend.  So turn on that disco ball a little early and celebrate a well-deserved upcoming weekend with a few of my findings around the interwebs this week!


+ It's amazing how 10 small body language tweaks could boost your career!

+ I made this and this over the past week - both are definitely worth giving a shot yourself.

+ It's aware season and here are some behind-the-scene facts to satisfy the inner Perez Hilton in you.

+ With services like Glossybox and Birchbox still going strong, I love the idea of a box that pampers mothers.

+ They say imitation is the best form of flattery, well you can find a similar look to Diane Kruger here.

Hope you & yours have a lovely weekend!

zippered

[jacket: similar // dress: jcrew // scarf: jcrew // baubles: michael kors, stella & dot, jcrew, kenneth jay lane // purse: tory burch // sunnies: rayban]

This dress is such an easy throw-on - seriously, dress it up, dress it down - it works in practically every situation.  I have been rockin' it since I nabbed it and it's still available and causing me to consider nabbing it up in every other available color.  Added bonus for shorties like me - it's also available in petite sizing (hooo-ray!)
