Elements of Style – My Way.

I am at an age where I am expected to dress less like a Millennial on a soul-searching trip, and more like the #girlboss that I aspire to be.  You know the drill: the #TimelessStyle –  a solid and dependable little black dress, trusty black pumps, complementing blazer and a string of pearls around my…
