I have to be the worst ever at coming up with blog post titles… But, Spring has definitely sprung here in northern VA. Actually… it sprung about mid-February. We’ve had a series of 80 degree days and then next day drops to 40. If that isn’t global warming, then I’m not sure what it is…
I was strutting through the streets of this gorgeous historic teeny tiny town with my hardcore sass shoes on. My best friend always brings out the inner sass, confidence, and rawness of my personality – there’s no one I feel more comfortable around, which is why we’re such a good duo! These pictures really capture that. It can be hard to pose well in pictures, especially since it takes a certain amount of ‘into yourself-ness’ about it (… if that’s a thing). This was by far my funnest shoot yet, with the best photographer yet. I can’t wait for all of our trips through little historical towns in glam outfits to continue. Here’s to more Zara, lipstick, and sass!
I decided this winter that every winter I would invest in a new coat. A nice jacket is a staple in the winter, but is also your entire look when out and about. It covers all the glorious layering and precision of a perfectly organized outfit. This year I choose to go with something grey, as it matches everything and I currently have way too much black in my winter wear. It automatically makes my winter street style look chic. This oversized HM scarf can be difficult at times. It’s SO BIG that it overtakes everything. It isn’t the blanket type, which makes it un-foldable, but I often use it as a blanket when it’s very cold, and with the right technique it can be wrapped! I’ve been all about layering lately – pulling bits and pieces of old clothing and mixing them in with the new, layering crop tops over blouses. Experimentation is endless!

Choker: The Style Studies
These culloute pants are my most unique and stylish to date! Because they are wide legged culottes, they do have a bit of an unflattering affect. As a bottom heavy woman it’s harder to look slim in baggy pants. But because of their high waisted, stretchy waistband, these are nice and snug in the waist and therefore help to create more of an hourglass effect. I call them my happy pants because not only are they vibrant and fun, but the same day I wore them, I sold my first chokers on my shop ❤️ whoop whoop!
After reading many of the Fall magazine issues and scouting the runways for my latest Fall Trends Post, I went on the hunt for some amazing Autumn pieces to share with all of you that you too could add to your wardrobes, and at amazing prices!
Below are some of my favorite finds, and at the bottom of each picture is the name of the store you can find it at. Happy Shopping!
Dress: Urban Outfitters
It was an ongoing joke on the 4th of July to count and see how many people complimented this dress, and there were so many we couldn’t even keep track! It’s just so casually, effortlessly beautiful and elegant. I know I use the term effortless quite a lot, but if I could erase every other time I’ve used it and change the definition of it to this dress, I would. Though the front is very lowcut, thanks to my lack of packages it didn’t seem revealing. It’s very light, breezy and cool in the heat, but does shrink in the wash! I almost lost it when I struggled to button it around my ribs, but as the day went on it loosend back to its original fit. It’s a true beauty!

Jeans: Zara (in-store only, similar here)
I’m a bit Zara obsessed at the moment, as you can tell. They had a huge sale on before the holiday so I took full advantage of the amazing deals and got myself a little going-away outfit! Everything in Zara is incredibly chic, even in the simplest of forms. I was in fits over this bell-sleeved, pinstriped top. It’s light and airy, and simple yet so unique! The jeans were supposed to be boyfriend jeans, but they only had one size left and I loved them so much that I got them anyway! Also, the shoes leave horrible blisters the first few times if worn for long periods of time 😬 but after being broken in they’re super comfy and match everything while being effortless chic!
It’s still January, but Spring collections have hit the runways and there’s no perfect time than now to invest in the best Spring style must haves.

My little babe of a sister and I had our first photoshoot together a few days ago at the beach near our house while I was visiting home for the holidays. After some shopping and playing dress up in Zara I just couldn’t resist getting here these two staple statement pieces! I couldn’t believe how chic Zara Kids was! Their kids section alone gets me so excited to be a mom one day! It’s crazy adorable when kids are wearing the cutest clothes that you typically wouldn’t picture them in. My little sister beats to her own drum and won’t wear anything unless she likes it, but I’ve convinced her to let me dress her for some kids fashion posts 🙂 In our favorite movie, Grease, Sandy transforms into a leather jacket wearing biker babe so that was my leverage in convincing her this time around (; How cute is she? More kids fashion fun to come!

I went to a DC Fashion week networking event and fashion show this past Thursday and had so much fun! My friend and I spent the day in DC before the event and took in the gorgeous waterfront view and couldn’t resist stopping at Georgetown Cupcakes (of course :P)
The night consisted of a restaurant/bar absolutely packed to the edges with other photographers, models, bloggers, etc. all from the area. Although it was hard to get a chance to socialize (everyone was way too focused on the runway in the middle of the room) we had so much fun! i’d have to say the best part of it all way seeing what the other guests around me chose to wear. Granted, the fashion show was great to see as it was aspiring college designers in school, I was crazy interested in the personal style of fashionistas around me. Having your own taste is the best part of being stylish! Everyone can bring something different to the table!
