Making a Statement: The Latest Sunglasses Trend

Making a statement: Featuring cat eye sunglasses paired with a white tee, red beret, and a plaid mini skirt

Ah, spring. Another change of season that brings along with it new trends for me to buy. This past weekend, I visited the Hirshhorn Museum‘s exhibit Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s. It was a last minute decision based on the cherry blossom peak bloom’s postponement. My trendy spring outfit for that post was not suited for the decidedly not-spring weather, so only one item made it in–these cat eye statement sunglasses. read more

Honey Mustard: Featuring a distressed turtleneck sweater dress, a chestnut fringe clutch and tan ankle booties

It’s 2018 and my life is hectic. So much action has been packed into the last few weeks! I went home for the holidays, came back and saw friends from out of town, came back to a crazy hectic workplace and now I’m working on moving. Whew! Life comes at you fast, and my blog posts got pushed back further and further. But two weeks ago I visited CityCenterDC for winter restaurant week, and it’s so instagrammable, so I had to capture some shots! read more

So I love going to my office’s holiday party. It’s pretty much all of my favorite things–dressing up, free food, free drinks, and dancing! However, dressing for the office holiday party isn’t always easy. My first year, I spent weeks scouring the internet and local stores for the perfect dress. I didn’t want to be overdressed and stand out in a bad way, but being under-dressed is right up there with spiders and two-headed animal crackers on my List of Things I Hate. I felt like my only option was to get it right the first time. read more

With a Cherry on Top: Featuring a cherry red v-neck sweater, a plaid pencil mini skirt and over the knee boots

In case you’ve been underground the last few months, the color dominating fall is cherry red. If you read my previous post on fall trends according to your zodiac sign, you know that this color was all over the Fall/Winter ’17 runways, and I’m loving it. Red isn’t an uncommon color for fall and winter, but it usually comes in the more subdued shade of wine.

The Jamaica Lookbook: My Guide to Looking Like I've Done this Before

So before November 1st, I had never been out of the country before. Since graduating college, I’ve been tackling a lot of “firsts” in my life, and this year one of my goals was to travel internationally for the first time. Going to Jamaica started out as an innocent suggestion from my boyfriend, but once the idea was there, it locked in. I’d officially been biten by the travel bug. read more
