Happy Monday! I recently did a Q&A on my IG stories and thought it may be helpful to round up all the questions and requests in a blog post since content gets buried so quickly on Instagram and it can be difficult to search things! I’m also thinking of making this a regular [weekly?! or bi-monthly?] series on my IG and blog as well!
Q: A strapless bra that doesn’t slip?
I love this strapless bra and definitely stays up the best out of any strapless bra I’ve tried! I also get questions daily about the bra I wear under my tanks – and this one is perfect because it can also be worn racerback style with straps.
Q: What’s a good work bag?
Tory Burch is definitely my go-to brand for a classic work tote – this one is my top pick!
Q: Plain white sneakers from the Nordstrom Sale you recommend?
There weren’t any from the actual nsale I personally loved, but found this pair I do love on sale at Nordstrom! I own this pair of Cole Haan sneakers and they are very good quality and comfy!
My top white sneaker recommendation for the last two years has been [and still is] my favorite Frye Company sneaker! I love the minimal style and they are such a great quality and so comfortable.
And one more sneaker option: I found these while searching the Nordstrom site and these look very similar to my Frye ones, have great reviews, and are half the cost. So this could be a great pair for anyone looking for a more budget-friendly option!

Q: What about luggage? I need some recommendations for my near future adventures!
I own this set and love it! It has almost 13,000 reviews and 4.5 stars!
Q: Sexy, date night capsule outfits?
3 tips for dressing up your capsule wardrobe basics: go monochrome [looks instantly chic], add a pair of heels and some bold jewelry!

Q: Best leather crossbody that doesn’t break the bank?
I love this Tory Burch bag – this would be my second choice after my YSL crossbody.
And my top recommendation for an investment crossbody is this YSL. It’s such a beautiful classic bag that can be worn dressed up or dressed down.
Q: A good jeans brand?
Q: White wide-leg pant recommendations?
Love these wide-leg pants and they also come in white!
Q: Any comfy flats or short heels for work?
My tips for work shoes – go with a block heel and a slingback style! A block heel will be much more comfortable for all day wear and slingbacks are so chic [very French minimalist] and slimming.
I used to wear heels all the time when I worked in Finance because I had trouble finding flats I liked and styling flats with work clothes – but my feet hated me for it. Ladies, don’t do what I did– wear flats or short heels when possible [I even used to go on walks in my heels and one time I’m pretty sure I broke/fractured my foot. 8 years later and it still bothers me!].
And to style work outfits with flats, I find ankle pants to be the most flattering and versatile as they can easily be worn with flats and heels.

Q: Which jeans were you wearing in your recent story?
Had a few questions about my jeans and linked them here! They are SO comfy! I find they run tts and wearing my size in ankle! I think these are a perfect balance between skinny and mom jeans since they are slightly tapered.
They were on repeat last year and you’ll see them on repeat again all fall/winter!
P.S. I normally line dry my denim to make them last longer, and recently put these through the washer/dryer since I felt they were a little too loose – and it worked like a charm! The fit is extra snug and perfect [which is why I would recommend going with your true size since some reviews say to size down].

Q: A basic white button down shirt?

Q: I love the recommended Tom Ford sunglasses! But any cheaper alternatives?
The sunglasses I always wear are almost identical and under $100!
These were the Tom Ford sunglasses I shared from the Nordstrom sale – and I absolutely LOVE them! If find that 55 mm frames are most complimentary on my oval face shape and these are such a gorgeous and classic pair. Highly recommend if you have been looking for a designer pair and they are currently over $150 off!
