Quiet Day in DC | Peplum Top and Black Blazer

Magnificent Monday amazing readers!



I'm back from my blogging break and I'm quite excited about all the outfits I have planned this week. The break has been just what I needed - it gave me time to catch up on my work and social life while taking a step back to appreciate other bloggers' hard work. I also managed to finish watching House of Cards. Anyone else watch that show? It's so addicting and brilliant! It really hits home for me because I used to be an intern on the Hill and sometimes people in DC can get very scary-ambitious (although no one I know would go to the lengths of Frank Underwood and just cut down people in his way - that's a frightening thought!)





What are some of the shows you watch?

Top: H&M peplum top, H&M blazer (similar here)
Bottoms: Express jeans (similar here)
Accessories: Loulou's statement necklace (similar by Lilly Pulitzer), Vintage Prada bag (similar here), Essie's "Warm and Toasty Turtleneck"
Shoes: Zara black pumps (similar here)

  3. I love this professional look on u w/ the lovely peplum top & structured blazer :) I've tried watching the 1st episode of House of Cards but couldn't seem to get into it. Perhaps I should give it another try? I'm trying to catch up w/ the newest season of The Walking Dead now! Happy Monday~~

  4. So cute! I love the clean look of the peplum paired with the blazer. And I'm sitting here watching hours and hours and hours of How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. I need a new show.

  14. Really love this outfit! I'm glad you're back from your break and that you enjoyed it! I'm on a forced hiatus at the moment and it's bittersweet. I love not having to worry about photographing and editing and writing but I also miss it very much!!
    I've never watched House of Cards, is it on Netflix? Spencer and I choose one show (on Netflix because we do not have cable!) and then watch all of the seasons available. We just finished American Horror Story's second season so we are looking for another program to start in on!

    Much Love,
