DC: Culottes & Pop of Red

Hello lovelies!

I am writing from Rosemary Beach – I am in complete beach mode.  My biggest choices daily right now are – sunscreen and should I reapply sunscreen? 🙂

Wanted to share some casual vacation pics from Washington, DC.  I had styled these culottes previously here and wanted to go casual while sightseeing in (gulp) flats.  I adore these culottes – they are extremely comfy and they don’t wrinkle ever!  Perfect for travel.  I wanted to add a bit off fun so I threw in some pops of red with shoes, bag and lipstick.  I have already rocked this outfit in Rosemary!

Monday Blues Cure

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer! Sorry I have been missing for so long, but I really wanted to take the summer off and focus on my family and friends. It was an absolutely amazing summer of travel adventures and I cannot wait to share pictures with you. I am starting today with pics from Rosemary Beach – or as I like to call it, Paradise on earth.

Casual Chic Shades of Blue

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend! I love fireworks – they have such a great way of bringing out the inner kid in everyone! I mean they are sparkles in the sky and who doesn’t love sparkles!! 🙂

I had a leisurely weekend so I thought I would share a casual chic brunch outfit with you today.

Birkenstocks – aka Ugly Shoes

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a fabulous week! Thank you so much for your sweet and kind words, emails, and comments about my Marie Claire feature. I am actually still on cloud nine about the whole thing. Today I want to talk about a shoe rage that is pretty much everywhere – you know what I am talking about….the ugly shoes….

All My Favorites – Blush Pink Moto & Fuchsia Leather

Hi lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! Mine has been rather busy, and I am really looking forward to the weekend! I must confess that I am in a cleaning frenzy – I have been slammed with work so clutter has taken over my house, and I spent quite a few hours the past few days combing through the madness. It is such a gratifying feeling (is it just me or does everyone feel this way post a good spring cleaning?)

To celebrate I treated myself to a fun girl’s lunch, and decided to combine two of my favorite colors today – fuchsia and blush pink!

Spring Is Coming – Button Down, Leopard & Boots

Hello lovelies!

I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones, and I have been increasingly enticed by the build-up from their previews.  You know the slogan “Winter is Coming” – it seems to occupy my brain (on repeat), hence why today we will focus on my own rhapsody on a theme:  Spring is Coming…

Black and White – Stripe on Stripe

Hello lovelies!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I was featured on this week’s IFB: Links á la Mode for my post – Four Ways to Experiment with the Black & White Trend (yeah!!).  I was of course inspired to experiment with the black and white trend again today.  What do you think?

Mixing Colors – Baby Blue & Fuchsia

Hello lovelies!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I am still coming down off of cloud 9 from my photo shoot with Marie Claire on Saturday.  I might not make it to the magazine, but it was such an honor to be asked (I never understood before why the actors at the Oscars all say “it was such a pleasure to be nominated”, but now I get it.)  It is a form of validation when someone in the industry acknowledges that you are doing a good job, and fashion is a huge passion of mine so you can imagine what this meant to me.

Today I want to share some quick pictures I took on Friday – remember when I said the azaleas were inspiring my outfits lately (see here)?  Today I want to share the actual azaleas that make me smile every morning.
