Work Out Ready

Tank: Athleta | Sports Bra: Maia | Capris: Athleta | Running Shoes: Nike | Socks: Athleta
 
One of my ongoing goals is to get in shape.  I recently purchased these Nike running shoes, hoping they would be just the motivation I need!  So far, it has worked--I've been making time to go for a run or go to the gym after work.  This weekend I'm going work out shopping...is it sad that it takes a new outfit to make me want to work out?!

Summer Nights



 

 
Maxi: Hourglass Lilly via bevello (similar) | Jacket: Anthropologie | flip flops: Splendid (on sale) | Clutch: Ted Baker (NSALE) Cuff: Vince Camuto | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Henri Bendel | Sunglasses: Michael Kors
 
Here's the perfect outfit for a summer night out.  I love wearing maxis in the summer, and I usually grab my denim jacket since I get cold pretty quickly after the sun goes down.  I've been having dinner on a patio or getting frozen yogurt in the evenings a lot lately, and a few nights ago, I was looking for an excuse to carry my favorite NSALE clutch!  Summer nights have been wonderful, but I couldn't be more ready for fall.

Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a great weekend...after a very long week, I  was happy to relax a bit!  On Sunday, I spent the day with my mom, having dessert before lunch {I'm a big fan of it} and playing catch up!  I wore this dress as a skirt and my new favorite top {you'll probably see it again soon}  I'm back to black and white {surprise, surprise!} and ready for a great week!     

Thoughts on wearing dresses as skirts?

Back to the Basics



 
 
 
 T-shirt: H&M | Skirt: Stem via Nordstrom (similar) | Sandals: Old Navy (on sale, in store) | Crossbody: Target | Necklace: J.Crew | Earrings: Nadri | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Henri Bendel | Sunglasses: Anthropologie

Most days I enjoy putting together an outfit and getting dressed {and even getting overdressed}  But some days I just don't feel like putting much effort into getting ready for the day ...this is my "uniform" when these days happen..  It's so easy to grab a t-shirt and maxi, and  I usually add a pop of color and throw on a few jewels to jazz up these basic essentials.

Botanic Garden

 
 

 



 

Top: Anthropologie (no longer available) | Jeans: AG (similar) | Sandals: Steve Madden | Earrings: Belk | Cuff: Vince Camuto |  Bag: H&M | Sunglasses: Anthropologie 

We had Sunday brunch {my favorite} in Capital Hill my last day in D.C. and then spent the afternoon in the Botanic Garden. It was such a beautiful place to visit, and gardens always inspire me {maybe it's my love for florals}...I could've happily spent the entire day here.  My sister basically had to drag me away, mostly because I knew after we left, I had to spend the next five hours driving home--But it was a wonderful vacation, and I can't wait for my next trip back!

Georgetown

 



 
 

Top: Banana Republic | Skirt: Anthropologie | Sandals: H&M | Bag: H&M | Earrings: Belk | Bracelets: David Yurman | Watch: Michael Kors | Rings: Light Years | Sunglasses: Anthropologie
 
So my favorite vacation day was spent in Georgetown.  We got up early and got to M Street before most of the shops were even open...Our day started with breakfast at a little French cafĂ© {which was incredible} We shopped most of the morning, stood in line {for about 45 minutes} so we could try the infamous Georgetown Cupcake, {well worth the wait} walked down to the waterfront for a late lunch, had more cupcakes, {this time at Sprinkles Cupcakes} and did more shopping before it was time to leave...

National Harbor

 
 
 
 
 
 
Top: Anthropologie (no longer available) | Jeans: AG | Heels: New Directions (different color, on sale) | Bag: H&M | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: David Yurman | Cuff: Vince Camuto | Sunglasses: Anthropologie
 
I just got back from my mini vacation to D.C. My first day there, we went to the National Harbor to have lunch and see the  new sky wheel {The Capital Wheel}  The weather was getting kind of bad right before we got on, and we were on the last ride before the storm passed, so I'm surprised I actually got on--but the view was beautiful.
