How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in Vineyard Vines

I am a huge musical nerd. Huge. One thing that I have discovered to be a problem with my currently lifestyle is that Nate and I do not at all take advantage of the fact we live in Washington, DC. Because we're both on travel so much, we dine out in other cities and explore … Continue reading How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in Vineyard Vines

National Seersucker Day and Our Anniversary

Four years ago, Nate and I got married. Fortuitously, today is #NationalSeersuckerDay. What are the odds!

1901 in Charlotte

The brand 1901 at Nordstrom is new to me, but as soon as I walked by the section I was drawn in by their cute ensembles.

(not that there is anything wrong with a size zero, … Continue reading 1901 in Charlotte

Draper James at Palm Leaf Wall in Chicago

Draper James does it again! I LOVE this brand- to be fair, I love anything associated with Reese Witherspoon, and I own a lot of her dresses. This sweater dress has been heralded by many, but as sweater dresses tend to not be a great fit for me, I avoided this one simply because I … Continue reading Draper James at Palm Leaf Wall in Chicago
