Fall Fashion Essentials

Hey y’all and happy hump day! Do I NEED to start every post off with a mention of what day it is..? But ya know what, sometimes it’s easy to forget!

It’s been (slightly) cooling off where I live and Fall is within reach, so it’s a great time to start getting some fall fashion inspo and stock up on some fall fashion essentials.

Bow Booties

Hey y’all and Happy Monday!

Today I’m here sharing with you my new all-time-favorite BOOTIES! They have a bow on them and they are so.. SO adorable. I’m already obsessed and it isn’t even Fall yet – but booties are a year-round shoe in my opinion.

I took these photos this last weekend when I went down to National Harbor in Maryland and did a little shopping at Pepper Palace. In case you’ve never heard of this shop, you should definitely check them out and get some amazing food items – we stocked up on salsa, queso, and wing sauce – YUM.

And yes, these photos are taken in a parking garage stairwell. But I like stairs – OKAY?!

This top is also one of my favorite tops of all time. It’s insanely soft and comfortable, and it’s thin enough to wear during that transition time between summer and fall.

T-Shirt Dress

Hey y’all! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

My mother-in-law came into town for her birthday weekend and we had a great time sightseeing and celebrating! I got myself a library card to the library of congress (talk about a cool place to work/study), and we finally got into the capitol building for a tour. I’ll be sure to do more DC posts soon and a vlog channel will be coming even sooner! (is that a word..?)

But we were outside of the capitol building and I thought.. what better place for some blog photos?! I was wearing my all time FAVORITE t-shirt dress. This thing is crazy comfortable and I want it in every color possible. Forreals.

In addition to the exact items I’m wearing, I also linked to some amazing deals from the Nordstrom sale going on right now. So be sure to shop this look and similar items (& great deals) in the slider at the end of this post!

Unfortunately the capitol building was under construction and the scaffolding was up so we didn’t get to see the amazing designs inside the dome. BUT We did get in on the last day they were doing tours before closing up shop for 2 months to complete the construction. I’ll definitely want to see the finished product!

It has also been crazy hot up here, so a t-shirt dress is perfect for insanely hot summer days. It’s comfortable but still flowy, and I love a good year-round bootie.

Hope you all have an amazing day!

Denim Shorts

Hey y’all! Happy monday!

I feel like every post I’m complaining about how humid it is where I live. But for real – it’s HUMID! It’s hard to even wear shorts because anything feels constricting. But this outfit was super comfortable and perfect for our day out in the city. We went to our friends place then to a housewarming party, and denim shorts are always my go-to clothing item during the summer for days out.

I also wasn’t sure what to do with my hair that day – so I decided to do a twisty half up hairstyle. I’m thinking about doing  a summer no-heat hairstyle video/post.. let me know what you think!

You also can’t tell in these photos (we were in a bit of a rush taking these), but the back of the top is lace up and I’m OBSESSED! I could wear this backwards and put the lace in the front as well. I love the lace up style for summer and I can see how it can wear SO cute into Fall as well.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Lace Shorts

 

Hey y’all!

I have been the worst at getting my posts up on time lately! By the time I wake up in the morning and get going at my day job – it all of the sudden gets too late to post! But here I am with an outfit post from a few weekends ago going to the Barrel Oak Winery in Virginia.

I have to say.. I was really impressed with the wine and the service here! All of the workers were super friendly. And, if you bought a bottle your tasting was free! We also ended up finding an empty balcony to grab a table on, so it was nice to get some privacy.

Luckily, this was a couple weeks before the unbearable humidity moved in. It was perfect weather for these insanely comfortable lace shorts. Now, I literally STEP outside and start sweating no matter what I’m wearing.  And this is coming from a girl who loves her some 100 degree weather! Nope, not this!

Hey y’all,

First and foremost – just ignore my glasses in this post haha. I ran out of contacts! #thestruggleisreal

So lately it has been crazy hot and humid where I live, so I am loving me some off the shoulder tops. They’re breezy and super comfortable.. and I think the style is so cute! It’s a timeless style perfect for the warmer months.

On a side note – I’m about to be going on vacation later this week with family to a beautiful location, so be sure to subscribe to see all the amazing photos that will be going up! But anyways, back to the outfit..

This top was from Tillys and I’ve gotten a ton of use out of it. This style is timeless (in my opinion) and classy while still putting a bit of edge on an outfit. I love the lace detailing on this top as well!

Farmers Market

Hey y’all! Happy Monday! This weekend the hubs and I decided to take a trip down to the local Farmers Market. Honestly, we weren’t that impressed with this one.. but it was still a super nice summer morning and we took our pups down for a long walk. We walked around the booths then went out for a nice lunch! It was a great, relaxing Saturday. I absolutely love a nice summer morning!

thumb_IMG_0374_1024 thumb_IMG_0372_1024

The Washington DC area apparently has a ton of Farmers Markets, so I’m hoping to find one that lives up to my expectations! I loved the Dallas farmers market, so we will keep searching!

This denim dress is SO easy and I love this bag I got from Amazon. I went searching for an easy beach bag before my latest trip to Mexico and this one was such a bargain! Shop this look in the slider at the end of the post..

Georgetown Brunch

Hey y’all, happy hump day!

Today I’m sharing with you an amazing Georgetown brunch! At this hot spot on the waterfront, you’ll find amazing atmosphere, food, and drinks. On the weekend at Sequoia, you can get brunch for $54.95.

It sounds pricey, but it’s worth the occasional splurge. For that, you’ll get unlimited mimosas, bloody Mary’s, and bellinis – along with an amazing brunch buffet with mussels, salads, pallela, eggs Benedict station, and a chocolate fountain.. And more. Not to mention the gorgeous scenery of the waterfront! It’s the perfect summer splurge brunch spot. I was very impressed!

Summertime Tank Top

Hey y’all, VERY long time no talk! Unfortunately I don’t have an excuse other than having a ton of stuff going on lately. I initially planned to have a new video up today – but that will be coming later this week.

Instead, today, I’m sharing with you a favorite summertime tank top! I don’t know about where you live, but here it’s gotten insanely hot and HUMID! So flowy tank tops are a lifesaver for the blazing temperatures.
