We had a glorious weekend last week with a few 70+ degree days. Naturally, I took advantage and did some photoshoots with a few pieces that I am super excited about. A lot of weekends, I like to hang out at Union Market - a local food pop-up warehouse filled with local shops and restaurants. I’m a big proponent of shopping local

Tie Waist Skirt
I’m really excited to talk about this skirt today. As mentioned in my blurb earlier, I love shopping local and products that are made in the US. This skirt is about as local as I can shop - it’s made in DC by designer Mimi Miller. I first heard about Mimi when she reached out to me to do a community photoshoot last Autumn where I was able to get photographed in this exact skirt. I couldn’t stop thinking about how flattering and pretty the skirt was (and well made too) so I bought it a few weeks after the shoot. The weather soon got too cold for this skirt but of course on the first nice day of the year, I pulled it right out to wear to Union Market. Mimi’s designs are made in the USA (here in Washington, DC, in fact) and are manufactured ethically and sustainably. She doesn’t make pieces that are super trendy but instead opts for classics that you can wear again and again for years to come. You should check out her website (she has a new piece in her core collection that I would buy right now if I weren’t on a shopping ban) and her Instagram - she has the CUTEST bunny!

I had a hard time figuring out what to pair with this skirt and I suddenly remembered that I had this cami that was pretty much my favorite piece last summer! I really love the cute scalloped neckline of this cami. It’s great under a blazer or a cardigan for work and perfect for warm weather days. It adds a bit of whimsy to my outfits and I really like it.
