Hello, Sailor Stripes

Is there anything more appropriate for these early summer days than some nautical stripes? This limited edition J.Crew top was created for National Stripes Day. I paired it with a red pleated skirt and my Loeffler Randall sandals from Bishop Boutique. Feeling very nautical and ready for summer.   I'm headed off to Vegas for … Continue reading Hello, Sailor Stripes

YAYOI KUSAMA at the Hirshhorn Museum

So, I realized that this post was still in my drafts folder and I had never posted it! Though the exhibition closed on May 14th, here's a little #TBT to my visits to the Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum, which for its run was the hottest ticket in DC. I have long been … Continue reading YAYOI KUSAMA at the Hirshhorn Museum

Seersucker Dress and the Spanish Galleon

Once a year, El Galeon, the Spanish Galleon docks in Old Town Alexandria, and it's always a sight to see.

Feeling Pretty in Camilyn Beth Pink

The Association for Women in Events had an event with the Potomac River Boat Company, and I for one can never resist a boat. It was the same day that Nate got us tickets to see Ragtime at Ford's Theater, so I was unfortunately caught between two wonderful activities. Luckily, the boat stayed docked for … Continue reading Feeling Pretty in Camilyn Beth Pink

J.Crew Bow Top and Striped Heels

For a casual dinner date, I wanted to throw together a cute summer outfit, but without being too casual or too tropical. This bow tie tank from J.Crew was darling, and I thought it would be perfect with white jeans. The white straps contrast with the navy and the peplum is very flattering. I grabbed a … Continue reading J.Crew Bow Top and Striped Heels
