What I’m wearing: 

Outfit 1: Sweater- Vince, Shorts- (similar), Boots- Via Spiga (similar), Bag- Zac Posen (my exact one is sold out, but here’s a very similar one)

Outfit 2: Sweater- Vince, Skirt- Loft (this one might be even cuter!), Shoes- Coach

 I’m in love with this cashmere sweater. All cashmere really. There’s just something about the quality, how durable, yet soft it is, that can’t be beat. And it’s versatile too. Of course, traditionally it’s reserved for the colder months of the year, but I decided to start early and styled this white cashmere sweater two ways for the fall. The first look is perfect for a patio date night on a late October night (you know when you can still wear shorts, but want to pretend it’s fall so you also throw on a sweater), and the second look is great for work or a networking coffee. Read on to see how easy both are to style.

Red is one of my favorite colors to wear basically all year round. It’s flattering and in many cases can pass as a neutral. This particular Zara dress has been a longtime go-to, and I’ve been able to style it many ways, but always love this minimalist, classically chic look.

I’m really into shirt dresses now. They’r crisp, easy, and so very versatile. I’ll definitely be wearing this white one a lot these warmer months. It’s a bit of a looser fit, and pairs well with light jackets, but also is great by itself. Everyone should have such a classic in their wardrobe. I’m linking a couple favorites here and here.

Wearing- Sweater- INC International , Jeans- Free People, Coat- INC International, Boots- The Frye Company, Bag- Zac Posen, Hat- Vintage

A hat is always a good idea! And I feel like we never give hats the attention they deserve. I always want to wear one, but somehow never do it enough. I’ve had this one for a long time, but am really looking to expand my collection. Anyone have any good hats they recommend? I’m really liking this one with a wider brim, and this one is just adorable.

Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic, All-American look. And with quality, timeless pieces, the whole outfit is just easy, elegant, for lack of a better word, a classic.

Mom and I had a really great day shopping in Friendship Heights yesterday, a place with many high end shops like Saks, Neimans, and Bloomingdales. I love walking through dreamy designer handbags, swoon worthy shoes, and trying new fragrances (like the Chanel collection- 1932 is so good, so unique!). We stumbled upon a BCBGMaxaria store that was closing and selling everything for up to 80%. I picked up these gorgeous red sandals (got so lucky with this sale!) that I’m so excited to style!

You might gather that I have a thing for lace. I’ve worn this dress several times for evening occasions, but I really wanted to try a day time look. I think these gorgeous blush lace-up flats really did the trick.

Happy first day of spring!

Hopefully, it will actually start feeling like spring now. Yesterday it did for a hot second, so Greg and I took advantage and shot some season ready looks. He’s off to Germany for business this next week (soooo jealous), so we really wanted to get as much done as we could.

Happy Monday!

I love red, and this Zara dress does not disappoint! Red is a universally flattering color and adds fun to a look without going overboard. I also think it’s a great color for those who are not big on patterns and prints, as this is definitely not boring, but again, also not too much. Continue reading
