Color Your Spring

Richmond has some pretty awesome murals. They are all over the city and they are all so beautiful. The murals¬†definitely adds some really unique charm to the town. And it makes location scouting for the blog a thousand times easier. ūüôā Also, I am so excited to share that I just signed on to write for Mode, a fun blogging network. I will be sharing some of my articles here from time to time¬†if you’re interested in reading them. My first one is all about summer beach day must-haves. Can you tell I am¬†so¬†ready for summer?

Coffee Break

Let’s face it, work clothes can be boring. This is especially true when you work in a corporate setting or have a job working for the government. It is easy to fall into a black suit rut. Luckily, many advances have been made in work attire. You can look professional without boring yourself half to death. I have teamed up with Banana Republic to give you the most wearable work outfit ever. These three pieces can be mixed and matched¬†for any work occasion from¬†business meetings with top execs to casual Friday happy hours. This look in particular is more casual […]

Mixing and Matching

Mixing patterns is one of my favorite go-to looks. People will often say, ‘Oh I could never pull off so many different patterns.’ First of all, that is so not true. You got this. Second of all, mixing patterns is shockingly easy. It just looks like a sartorial feat. The first tip¬†is to make sure the two patterns have similar colors. In this look, navy blue was the unifying shade.¬†The second tip is to make sure one pattern is fairly basic to anchor the look. Stripes or polka dots are best for the anchoring¬†print. The other print should be much […]

A Bold Winter

You don’t¬†have¬†to spend the entire winter wearing all black (though it is perfectly acceptable to do so). Sometimes, you need something bold to get you through the Polar Vortex. I especially love this skirt because it was made by a Beyonce-approved Brooklyn-based designer. Anything Beyonce loves, I also love. Like hot sauce in my bag and baby hair and afros. Obvi. Also, lets talk about this new chambray I’m wearing. You all know I am a bit of a chambray expert. This chambray top I got from Humble Chic is a new fave. It’s lightweight, super soft¬†and¬†it has pearl buttons. […]

Red Accents

It’s Valentine’s Day week! Valentine’s is not my favorite holiday, but I like¬†wearing red — so I have an excuse to bombard all of you with tons of red this week. Annnyyyyway, I put together this look to show that you don’t have to get super dressy to look great this Valentine’s Day. If your Valentine’s Day plans include something more low-key or drinks with your girlfriends, you might not want to pull out your best cocktail dress. You can take an everyday outfit, add some festive accessories and have a perfect, comfy Valentine’s Day outfit that looks great but […]

All bandage dressed up.

The Bandage Dress, Revisited

I wore this dress when I was pregnant because it was surprisingly comfortable and showed off my bump. I wanted to wear this dress again because I saw model Taylor Hill wearing a bandage dress at a Victoria’s Secret press event and she looked so good I was inspired to wear my bandage¬†dress again. I think¬†it’s safe to say that I¬†look¬†exactly¬†like Taylor when I wear this dress. I am sure Victoria’s Secret will be calling at any moment to sign me up for their next show. I can’t wait to wear the fancy wings! I’ll just sit here on the […]

Snuggly Layers

Despite the title, in my head I am calling this my ‘sick post’ as both me and my hubby were super sick with terrible colds when these photos were taken. We peeled ourselves off the coach long enough to get some fresh air on the roof and snap some shots. I can’t say the excursion made us feel any better, but it was fun!

Wearing Out White

Labor Day is oh so soon! So better get your white in while you still can. If I’m honest, I consider this dress off-white. I would totally put a blue blazer over this and where it through Fall. Shoes: Kate Spade (on sale!!) | Dress: Zara (love this) | Necklace: Kenneth Jay Lane

Garden Party

Is it just me or has this summer¬†flown¬†by? Maybe it is because it really didn’t get super hot this summer. So it just felt like an extra long Spring. Since this summer is going by so quickly, I feel like I haven’t gotten to wear all my favorite sun dresses. This one from Joules is quickly becoming my ultimate fave. You know how sometimes you’ll buy a white dress and you’re all excited about it, but when it comes it is totally see-through and kind of cheap looking? Well this dress is the ultimate white dress.It is a rich, breathable […]
