3 Fall Trends I’m Crazy For

3 Fall Trends I'm Crazy For: Featuring a fuchsia skirt, white tee, transparent belt bag, and small blackout sunglasses

Summer is coming to a close, and although summer is my favorite season, I’m looking forward to the start of fall and fall’s new trends. It marks the change of seasons the way back-to-school shopping used to do before I graduated. I used to spend hours trying to decide what I was going to wear on the first day of school—you had to stunt as hard as possible to set yourself up for the rest of the school year. And even though there isn’t a day like that in the working world, you can still stunt on your coworkers with these three fall trends. read more

Tracing My Style Evolution

Tracing My Style Evolution: Featuring three looks from my 25th birthday and past years

My style has always been pretty eclectic. I’ve loved dressing up since I was a little girl (my favorite game was playing Princesses) and had unique tastes. Over the years, my style has been punk, Japanese gyaru, Japanese rock street style, urban, almost anything you could think of. Since I just turned 25 over the weekend, I thought it’d be fun to compare my style back then to trace my style’s evolution. I know you’re just here for the embarrassing past pictures, don’t worry. read more

Redefining the Creative

Redefining the Creative: Featuring a white chiffon crop top with bell sleeves and drawstring detailing, dark denim high waist shorts and oversized silver hoops

So a few weeks ago, I went to a DC: District Creatives happy hour. I didn’t really know what to expect, but that was the reason I joined the group. Their description was vague: “A collaborative community of like-minded professionals and innovators.” They didn’t have a strict definition for who a creative was. As someone who often feels like my hobbies are on the fringe of being creative, I was hoping to sneak in using this ambiguity. Bloggers get reduced down to “person obsessed with social media” and coders are often viewed as robots. Neither is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of creativity. read more

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

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
