Who Says Black and Blue Don’t Go Together: Rag and Bone Sweatshirt and Camouflage Pants

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great start to the New Year!  I have started 2015 by becoming obsessed with the Serial podcast  recommended by my sister!  I have never listened to any podcasts before this one so I can’t compare it to anything else.  However, I must admit I am completely wrapped up in it and want everyone to listen to it so we can discuss it.  It is a spinoff from the podcast This American Life and is created by Sarah Koening.  I think part of the allure of Serial for me is that it is a non-fictional crime case reviewed weekly where we uncover the details of the crime along with the narrator and as a former prosecutor I just can’t resist it.  Season 1 is an investigation into a 1999 Baltimore murder. Koenig starts Serial and explains it as a case “about the basics: love and death and justice and truth. All these big, big things.”  She also notes, “this is not an original idea. Maybe in podcast form it is, and trying to do it as a documentary story is really, really hard. But trying to do it as a serial, this is as old as Dickens.”

I encourage everyone to give Serial a try – it is story telling at its finest.  I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts about it.

Is Adnan Syed guilty of this crime or not?

Chic Summer Shorts

Hello lovelies!

As you are reading this I am back in Houston – it is always such a great feeling to come home after a long trip. You forget the little things, like how your house smells, that are just irreplaceable! While I enjoyed the DC weather for the most part, we did have a hot day right before I left, so I whipped out my new Marimekko for Banana Republic bright floral tailored shorts.

Pajama Trend: Street Style

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a fabulous week! I am thoroughly enjoying my visit here to Washington, DC. Shopping in Georgetown, playing tourist at monuments and museums, dining out on fabulous food (and eating my Mom’s delicious home cooking), and squeezing in some fun time with family and friends. The trip has been packed with activities, so when I leave the house in the morning I want to be dressed for comfort and versatility. I wore this casual outfit running around some great museums (yup, in the heels!)

Casual Travel Style – Crop Top & Wedge Sneaker

Hello lovelies from the Nation’s Capital!

I just arrived in Washington, DC yesterday and I have to say I love this city as much today as I did when I went to college and law school here (years ago – let’s not get into the numbers). I am here visiting family and friends and I cannot wait to explore how much this city has changed since my last visit, which was quite some time ago. Today I want to share my travel outfit from yesterday – crop top and all.
