Taylor, The Chic Word

A place where my love of FASHION and LITERATURE come together, because a well-dressed and well-read woman is a force to be reckoned with.

As promised here’s more of this beautiful trench coat dress from @chicwish. Sadly, my dress is sold out. But, they do have a couple other trench coat inspired dresses on their site that may fit the look you’re going for. ————————————————— #thechicword #chicworkchick #weartowork #makecorporatecool #whatiworetowork #9to5chic #9to5style #trenchcoatdress #trenchcoat #wintersyle #classicstyle #corporatefashion #officeoutfit #styleforwork #workootd #classyfashion #denverblogger
Who else is feeling festive?! One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is watching holiday movies with a big cup of peppermint hot chocolate. I’ve been trying to watch one every night before bed. I’d love to get some recommendations from y’all— What is your favorite holiday film? ————————————————— #thechicword #holidayseason #holidaymovies #christmasmovies #christmastime #winterstyle #chicworkchick #mytargetstyle #whowhatwearing #weartowork #denverblogger #christmas2018 #blackturtleneck #parisianstyle #discoverunder5k

Thankful for thrift stores. Thankful for oversized blazers. Thankful for FINALLY getting my hands on one as lovely as this circa 1990 @ralphlauren one. I have been wanting a blazer just like this for 2 years. The fact that I stumbled upon this one the night before Halloween for only $11.99 (originally $300+) is just downright spooky. ————————————————— #thechicword #chicworkchick #thriftstorefinds #thriftedfashion #vintagefashion #vintageblazer #styleforwork #9to5chic #ralphlauren #plaidblazer #oversizedblazer #tomboychic #whatiworetowork #9to5style #corporatefashion #weartowork #makecorporatecool #workchic #denverblogger

Last month I discovered this trench coat dress on @chicwish. It was one of the most adorable pieces I’ve come across in awhile. To say I’m head over heels with this dress would be an understatement. More photos to come with this beauty— But for now, here’s my pale blue trench coat dress paired with a cream pea coat and nude pumps. A classic winter look, if you ask me. ————————————————— #thechicword #chicworkchick #chicwishstyle #chicwish #weartowork #styleforwork #9to5chic #winterfashion2018 #trenchcoatdress #officeoutfit #parisianstyle #denverblogger #workwearstyle #workootd #whatiworetowork #corporatechic
I was ecstatic when I found this sweater, because I knew it would be a perfect match. Previously I’ve always worn black with this skirt— which has been a good pairing— but now that I have this sweater, you can bet I’m wearing this combo on repeat. Skirt is several years old from @nordstromrack and my sweater can currently be found at @target. #thechicword #mytargetstyle #cozychic #denverblogger #businesscasualattire #businesscasual #workwearstyle #weartowork #9to5chic #oversizedsweater #chicworkchick #officeoutfit #casualchic #workootd #paisleyprint #bohochicstyle #discoverunder2k
Sleepy Monday mornings call for a cozy sweater, maxi skirt, glasses, and loose ponytail. #thechicword #whatiworetowork #9to5chic #denverblogger #mytargetstyle
“There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them. Whenever I'm sad I'm going to die, or so nervous I can't sleep, or in love with somebody I won't be seeing for a week, I slump down just so far and then I say: I'll go take a hot bath.” — Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar Most people only quote that first line. Perhaps it’s because the full quote shows a bit more darkness than people like to share. Today I’m sharing Sylvia Plath’s full quote. Today I did not have a good mental health day. Today I am soaking in a hot bath. #thechicword #sylviaplathquote #mentalhealthmatters #becomingmichelleobama #whatimreading
All dolled up with no where to go. 💋 #thechicword #mymodcloth #denverblogger #datenightdress #retrofashion
If you’ve been following me for awhile, or even if you just were to take a peek at my feed, you probably will notice that I dress a bit more on the conservative side. Call me old fashioned, but tight fitting clothes, low cut blouses, and short hems and me don’t seem to get along. I will admit, I am a bit self conscious about my body and how clothing fits, which does contribute to the styles I tend to wear. Needless to say, I saw this gem on @ModCloth and was head over heels. When I first tried this sultry velvet dress on I couldn’t believe how amazing I looked in it, more so how amazing I felt. I felt sexy. I felt powerful. I felt confident. I felt beautiful in way that I don’t often feel. I felt myself in a way I didn’t think was possible. I wanted to dance. I wanted to take the stage. I was ready for anything. And those feelings are so worthwhile. I’m so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone with this retro green dress, because this dress suits me and makes me feel things I often don’t feel.
