Who I’m thankful For This Season
Sorry I’ve been MIA on the blog for a couple of weeks now… life was kicking my butt with work-work, family business work (which took me to Amsterdam… did you see that on Instagram?), wedding planning, and prepping for all the holiday content that’s coming up. But tis the season of our collective favorite time of the year, aren’t you excited??
I do want to take a moment to say something, especially to YOU, my reader, who’s reading this paragraph right now. I don’t think there is anything better I can ask for, than to create a connection with you purely via words. If you think about it, that’s something amazing especially in a world where reading is becoming more and more archaic. Thank you for taking the time to read my writing, to care about what I have to say… even if you’ve never left a comment or a message, I want to give you a big virtual hug and say THANK YOU!!
Now Onto My Must-wear Travel Piece!
Two business travels back to back have left me even more convinced that this poncho is EVERYTHING a girl needs on a flight, especially when traveling through airport security and needing to stay light and compact.
It’s made by Miilla, which is a wholesaler and their clothing is available through Poshmark. This poncho is absolutely high quality and is made of a microsuede-like material. It’s got pockets, and a hooded hat you can wear when it’s raining. The best thing about it is that when you are trying to sleep on a flight, this is essentially a blanket!
I don't think there is any other outerwear you can wear that will top the utility of this poncho, let alone how cute it is! To be honest I never hopped on the poncho bandwagon in the last few years because they always looked...too much like ponchos?? I just never liked any styles of poncho until I saw this one.
So what do you think? Where are you traveling to this holiday season, and what do you always wear on your travel days??

Maybe it's the new year, maybe it's the 1.5 years under my belt in the blogging world, or maybe it's me wanting more out of what I'm doing in my life... regardless, I want to really speak to YOU, yes, my Cubicle Chic reader, whose eyes are crawling these text right now. Thank you for your continued support. I will keep writing, bringing you more useful and relevant information!
Last week we talked about what to wear for the off-site kind of holiday party that's more formal and dressy. I featured the Morning Lavender Lynette dress that has since come back in stock! Check it out before they run out again!!
Now, there is the other type of company holiday party that happens during a normal work day. For these parties that happen in the office, perhaps a lunch gathering or a late afternoon happy hour, the dress code is usually a lot more laid back and casual....
Isn't this everyone's favorite season of the year? The crisp air, the string lights, the pops of green and read everywhere, the gifts.... and the shopping. OH, THE SHOPPING.
How bad was it, for Thanksgiving? What did you all get?? As part of my November shopping budget, I knew I wanted to get something for the holiday parties coming up. SO I was trying to be careful, only going down a very selectively curated list of shops I wanted to hit...
Ever since I went to PoshFest 2015 last year with no entourage and ended up making a bunch of lasting friendships. I feel like I've conquered networking, the fear of talking to successful, possibly intimidating, people doesn't deter me from making connections anymore. So when I saw that Career Contessa was having this "Interview Do's and Don'ts" net working event, I signed up without thinking twice.
think I was lucky. I didn't start my career in the corporate world until I was 26 because of grad school, so I think I got into the working world a little more matured, and a little more ready. More ready to become, shall we say, a #GirlBoss?
But thrown into the workplace without much experience, the learning curve was steep, and the growing pain was real. Like my manager told me on the day I started, "Be ready to drink from the fire hose." She was not exaggerating....
Last week we talked about how to stay graceful and chic when traveling through airports. Staying along the same line of traveling, and more specifically, traveling for business, I want to talk about one of the easiest Staying along the same line of traveling, and more specifically, traveling for business, I want to talk about one of the easiest piece to get in and out of when you're getting ready for business meetings!
Psst... this ASOS piece is STILL AVAILABLE AND 50% off now!!! GET IT BEFORE IT RUNS OUT!!
Black, white, nudes, gray, and monochromatic color combination is typical for women's workwear collection because they're season-less. But once in a while, I give into the temptation of something that's a bit funky, a bit different, and a bit..dare I say, colorful!
This blazer I bought from Nordstrom, and it's the brand Halogen, which is Nordstrom's own creation. I love the fit, the color, and length, and the material. It's really the perfect piece!
Happy Friday, you!! I am sharing a Friday casual outfit with you today, quite unlike my usual office wardrobe outfits!
