outfit idea

Fall is here! Of course it’s 90 degrees today and still feels like the dead of August, but I have hope that the weather will turn soon. I have too many plans to go apple picking, fall foliaging, and pumpkin scouting for it not to.

So what do you wear when it’s kind of fall, but not? I mean you know cooler in the morning, hot in the afternoon, and cooler again at night? You definitely want to layer, and I’ve got a great transitional outfit idea for you.

Why you should try DCAcar Service

 With the abundance of transportation services out there, it’s hard to know which one is going to work best for you and when to take a chance on a new service. I’m here to tell you that DCAcar Service did a fantastic job of picking us up from the airport and dropping us off at our apartment. Seriously, I am one to appreciate a high level of customer service and our driver excelled. There before our flight even landed, he was at the ready. I received a call and then a text message from the driver letting me know he was at the airport and ready for us. We took some time to get off the plane (traveling with a dog will do that to you), and DCAcar made sure to accommodate our schedule with patience and a great attitude. I know you guys can all take Uber or Lyft, but seriously, when it matters, you need to get transportation you know won’t cancel on you or make you wait 15 minutes and then proceed to drop off or pick up three other passengers. Either for yourself, or an important customer or client, they offer unbeatable reliability.

DCAcar Service

After spending an absolutely fabulous weekend in Minnesota, up at the cabin enjoying the lake, the day we had to leave was sad and both Greg and I were so tired. All we wanted to do was get home and rest. And DCAcar Service made sure we did just that. The car was spacious, luxurious, clean, and overall made me us feel very VIP.

  DCAcar service

You can reserve the car service to pick you up at your house and drive you to any of the three D.C. area airports, DCA, IAD, and yes, BWI as well. They can also pick you up from any of these three airports as they did for us, and drive you home. All drivers are extremely professional, on time (really, they’re early), and the black SUV features such goodies as bottled water, hand sanitizers, and mint candy.

There’s just something so luxe about getting a car service and arriving to the airport in style. You can also book them for a variety of events, so if you’re not traveling anywhere, don’t rule them out. They’ve got you covered to and from your next party, outing, or gathering. You can quickly and efficiently reserve your ride at www.dcacar.com, and also follow them on social media @dcacarservice.

 Wearing: Urban Outfitters dress (similar), Sam Edelman sandals, Zac by Zac Posen bag, Michael Kors sunglasses, Midori Linea necklaces

I’ve had this gray dress for years and I never run out of ways to wear it. It reminds me of a skater dress that I could wear with black converse high-tops, and though those days are mostly behind us, there’s something to be said about a youthful piece that can repurposed.

Wearing: Alexander Wang tank, Lou Lou Boutiques skirt (repurposed dress), Whistle & Wild duster, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Michael Kors Sunglasses, (similar) mules

Happy Monday!

I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago and I was really feeling like doing something creative. So I repurposed a dress as a skirt. This ruffle dress (I call it my cupcake dress) has served me well, and I’ve been able to wear it to tons of places this summer. I did a feature on it in a previous blog post about Miami, which you can read here.

 Wearing: Top- Express (similar here, and I also really love this idea), Pants- Loft, Duster- Whistle & Wild (sold out, similar option here), Shoes- Topshop, Earrings- Lou Lou Boutiques (similar here)

Surprise, color! This is the day two outfit of my wear everything in your closet, in order of how it’s hung up challenge. It’s bold, fun, and I really enjoyed sporting this look. Like I wrote in yesterday’s post, it’s helping me get out a bit of a fashion rut and embrace some of the creativity I had lost in my style.

So this top I had bought at Express several years ago, and I always tend to wear it with dark skinny jeans to balance out both the color and the peplum. But I’d done that already and it was time for something different. So what’s different than the usual black? More color of course!

how to wear sparkle to the office

I’ve decided to take on a project with my closet and that project is to wear every piece in my wardrobe; if I can’t bring myself to wear something, it has to go. The catch is that I’m going in order of pieces hung up, which has really started to get the creative juices flowing. No matter the day, if it’s next it has to be incorporated. The goal is to rediscover my clothes, and make room for new loves.
