Luxe for Less: Summer Maxi & Gold Sandals

Hello lovelies!

I am still in Washington, D.C. and it feels like I never left except for – the tons of new restaurants, buildings, new areas of town….I am really enjoying discovering the city all over again.  My dreams of a townhouse in Georgetown are still going strong.

 Just sharing some quick pics of a fun new maxi that I bought for drumroll….$29.99.  I love the splashes of silver and the light cotton for summer.  The price for value is amazing!

Can’t wait to wear it in Rosemary next week!

Beach Style: Patterned Pencil Skirt & Fun Heels

Hello lovelies!

I only had one opportunity to go to dinner while in Rosemary and colorful and bright was the way to go.  Since I chose this is fitted pencil skirt, I kept things easy breezy with a loose comfy top (it is the beach after all).  This amazing skirt can also be dressed up with something a bit more form fitting or dressed down further with flip floats and a T-shirt.  I wanted to use the beautiful peacock blue in the skirt and bring it out a bit more so I added the similar hued shoes but coral shoes would also look amazing!

I went without any jewelry because I forgot it but the outfit is calling for a couple of long necklaces to finish off the outfit.

Midi Skirt restyle: Sequin Lips & Louboutins

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I had a great weekend other than the Game of Thrones finale last night.  I always read the book first but for GoT I like watching the series and don’t want to know what is coming.  I am not so sure about this anymore since I have no idea what happened last night.  Spoiler alert – Jon Snow can’t possibly be dead, can he??  If he is truly gone – I am going to be very disappointed (that is putting it mildly).

Today, I want to share my Banana Republic midi skirt restyle.  I loved it uptown chic (seen here) but now I felt it needed a downtown cool vibe.  Best way to do that – a sequined T-shirt.
