I. Love. This. Dress. Y’all, I wore this a few nights ago downtown for dinner and I got all the compliments. Never thought I would say tweed could be actual perfection. It’s almost like a dress jumper combo. I put a striped shirt underneath, but it would look so good with a red or black turtleneck and flats. It’s the perfect transition dress as it starts to warm up. In my book, Zara can do no wrong. If you’ve never heard of Zara because they have very few brick and mortar stores, seriously go check them out. I’ll even make it easy for you and link the site here. You can thank me later. Zara will be a reoccurring theme around here. Super affordable and they make good wear to work staples but also super on trend pieces. Now, I know buying online is annoying. But, Zara runs pretty true to size and I rarely have to return because something doesn’t fit. But, if you do have to return, the shipping is free making it pretty painless.
Ok, I’ll stop going on and on about Zara. I hope everyone is having a fabulous week. Questions? Comments? Things you want to see? Let’s hear it!

Valentine’s Day is easily one of my favorite holidays… Chocolate, presents, love… What’s not to like? We are heading to the Cayman Islands this year. So ready to escape the cold and lay on the beach.. More to come on our Cayman trip.
Below is a round up of some great Valentine’s options…. There are some budget friendly options, some wear to work options, and some not so budget friendly options. Investing in a good little black or red dress is always a smart idea. They’re both timeless pieces. When What Not To Wear (did anyone religiously watch that like I did?) was still on, Stacey London would talk about how to decide when to invest in pieces and when to buy a cheaper dupe. There’s math ahead friends. Think about the number of times you think you’d wear something and divide that number by the cost of the piece. Then decide if you’d be willing to pay that number to wear the piece each time. Y’all…. I have used this so many times to talk myself into buying something. Sure, I’ll spend $25 every time I wear these $500 shoes….
I wore this valentine’s outfit to work with tights. I get so much work wear out of this skirt. It’s so versatile.. easy to wear with tights and heels or with flats and basically any top I’ve put with it looks good. My tights seem like just your run of the mill black tights, but they are so so flattering. I’m really rough with my tights and always try to invest in a more expensive pair that won’t have several runs in them at the end of the day. You’ll be seeing these shoes on repeat. They are my favorite wear to work and to play heels.
Thanks for reading and happy happy love day. Get ready for an overload of pictures from our vacation.

Welcome to All The Trouble!
My name is Heather Mazzola and I am beyond excited to start and share this journey with you. I contemplated blogging for years, but always found reasons not to start. Graduate school, the fear of failing, working full time…. With the New Year, I decided to stop making excuses and devote some time to something I love. So, here we go…. Buckle up!
A little bit about me… I am originally from Florida, I went to FSU for undergrad (GO NOLES!) and then moved to North Carolina for graduate school. I fell in love with North Carolina’s southern charm and changing seasons and decided to make it my permanent home. I am a clinical audiologist in Raleigh, NC. I am a dog mom to the cutest and craziest West Highland Terrier, Max Mazzola (head on over to my insta stories if you want to see lots of cuteness involving him). My love for clothes and the fashion industry runs deep and wide and I can’t wait to share my personal style with you.
Now, let’s get down to business. Here’s the real star of the show… this Jill Stuart dress. Just having my own gossip girl moment over here, don’t mind me. I love classic lines and structure. I’m a little more of a Blair than a Serena style wise. This dress is classic and chic all wrapped into one…and talk about flattering! My shoes are my favorite basic black pumps. They are the perfect wear to work height and easily transition to wear for fun.
I’m so glad you’re following along, stay tuned for a lot more trouble.. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to share. I’d love to hear from you.
