Memorial Day | Striped Midi and Chambray

Happy Memorial Day lovelies!
I wish you all a lovely and safe day! I am currently spending time with my family, enjoying a barbecue, and trying to get a tan in. I hope that whatever you do today, you remember the women and men in the armed forces who died fighting for our right to enjoy this day today.

Elevated Neutrals | Peplum and Lace Shoes

Hello lovelies!
I kept a rather neutral color palette for this look today. I simply adore these shoes because the color scheme ensures they go with everything but the lace keeps it from being anything but boring. I also love pointed toes because they help to elongate the legs while the ankle straps add a dainty and lady-like touch to an otherwise casual outfit.
I think that's the kind of look I really like - nothing too out there, just neutrals but... elevated. Little details that make an understated statement, if that makes sense.

Sweet May Flowers | White Blazer and Floral Romper

It's romper season again!
This was probably my favorite purchase last summer. I wasn't too big on rompers but this particular one turned me into a convert. I wanted to style it a bit differently from the way I wore it last year so I popped on a more fitted blazer with a pair of heels for a more grown-up look. I love the summery floral print of the romper 


Hello lovelies!
On Monday I was fortunate to be invited to an event at Blo Blow Dry Bar sponsored by Palm Breeze. Palm Breeze is a light alcohol spritzer currently on the market that is targeted specifically for the millennial woman. They invited DC area bloggers and their friends to come enjoy a Palm Breeze with some yummy hors d'oeuvres, get their hair done and have a girl's night and experience "vacay every day!"

Workout Hairstyles for Short Hair

I wanted to talk to you guys about hair again - specifically in a workout setting. I cut my hair short back and January and while it's been growing back, It's currently at that awkward stage where it's not as long as I need it to be to put up into fun hairstyles but it's not short short either. Finding a cute hairstyle to work out in has been a challenge but I've come up with a couple of criteria each hairstyle must meet.

  1.  Hair must be kept out of my face while I'm running and bouncing 
  2. Hair must keep from sticking to my neck - especially while sweating 
  3.  Hair must stay in place throughout the entirety of my workout. 
 I've narrowed it down to a few options. If your hair is about the same length as mine, you may want to consider the following styles:

5 Workout Essentials

Thumping Thursday everyone!

One of the things on my summer bucket list was to run a 5k in under 30 minutes. I signed up for the Georgetown 5k, held at the end of summer so I've been working out quite a bit for it. Today, I thought it would be fun to show you guys some of the workout gear I absolutely can't live without:

Movie Night: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Last month, of all the TV shows and movies I watched, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was probably the most memorable and my absolute favorite. I was completely hooked from the first episode and within a couple hours I found that I had finished the entire season! If you guys decide to only have one binge-watching session on Netflix, I would strongly recommend Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. 

April According to Instagram

Hello everyone!

April has been an exhausting month - I've been trying to get myself as organized and as disciplined as possible so that has been a mentally tiring, yet very rewarding journey. All I can say is that I'm quite grateful for the sun and the bright colors everyone's been wearing in celebration of the weather.
Some highlights:

Resolution Update: Organization

This month I wanted to focus on getting more organized.
I used to be one of those people who was so on-top of things but I found myself stressing out over minute details that weren't that important so I resolved to relax a bit. Well, I did that a little too well so I think I need to find a balance between easing up and being organized. Here are a few things I learned along the way:
