Summertime







Top: Anthropologie | Jeans: AG | Sandal: Franco Sarto | Crossbody: Anthropologie 

I'm becoming slightly obsessed with off the shoulder, it's all I've bought lately!  This one is my favorite, because it's so feminine and I have a soft spot for eyelet.  I'm loving the weather in DC right now, and I'm spending as much time as I can at the waterfront in Georgetown & Alexandria.  This weekend, I'm surprising my dad for Father's Day and going home {he has no idea!!}.  I can't wait!

Memorial Day Weekend


All Things Anthro {Obviously}

Here's a few sneak peeks from a little work "photo shoot" I did with one of my co-workers to show Memorial Day inspired outfits.  Anyone else planning to have a picnic?  I am so blessed to be in DC this weekend and I cannot express how much gratitude and respect I have for all of the men and women who have, are, and will serve our Country--"Freedom is not Free"  I'll be wearing my RED, WHITE, and BLUE all weekend!

Stripes & Lemonade



Top: Zara | Jeans: AG | Sandal: Franco Sarto


Happy Friday!  What a week, and I'm off this weekend!  One of my very best friends is visiting and I can't wait to see her {I couldn't sleep last night, I'm so excited!}  even if it will be rainy ALL weekend.  Yesterday was such a beautiful day and the sunshine made me ready for summer…Stripes and lemonade are two of my favorite summertime go-tos!

White, Black, & Blush




Top: Anthropologie | Jeans: Mother | Heels: Louise et Cie | Bag: Kate Spade

My favorite color combination of all time, classic and feminine…I wore this to Mosaic after work on Saturday.  Sadly, I have Metatarsalgia in my foot from the 5K so I only slid these shoes on for the picture and then my ugly {but super comfortable}  sandals went back on.  The weekend flew by and 4:30 came way too early this morning.  Happy Monday!

Carolina Girl






Dress: Charlotte Russe | Flip-Flops: Splendid | Clutch: Ted Baker | Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters

I'm heading back to DC after a few days at home with my family.  No matter where I live or travel, there's just no place like home--Carolina Girl.  I spent so much time with my niece and nephew playing barbies and basketball, and I had breakfast at school with Kaitlyn one morning; she is without a doubt my mini.  It's been a great trip with my people.  I'm so happy to be doing something I've always dreamt of doing, but I know that eventually I'm coming back to NC.

Weekends




Tee: t.la similar | Jeans: AG, similar | Flats: Vince Camuto  

I had a great weekend…on Saturday, I ran a 5K for Bright Beginnings, and I was actually able to run more than 2 miles and finished at 35:55 -- not exactly brag worthy, but I was excited.  After the run, I decided to take a walk around the mall and face time my mom.  Unfortunately a few minutes later, my phone decided it would shut down, and even though I had plenty of battery, I couldn't get it to turn back on, {I tried every 5 minutes} meaning No Uber back home.  I walked around the monuments 45 minutes looking for a cab and couldn't find one!! I saw so many cabs, but no one stopped or they already had a passenger. By this time, I had reached the World War II Memorial.  There was a group of WW II Veterans being escorted around, and I became emotional when I saw these heroes...so now I was walking around DC looking for a cab and crying!!  I continued to walk towards Constitution Avenue and finally got into cab.  As soon as I climbed in, the driver told me that he could only take me home if I had cash because his credit card machine wasn't working.  I told him that I didn't {who carries cash?!!} so I had to get out.  By this time, I needed a restroom, and it was becoming an emergency.  Of course, there aren't any shops around so I started looking for a museum.  DAR was the first one I saw--I practically ran inside// It was extremely quiet and there was a man formally signing in all of the guests {of course}.  I didn't feel that it was appropriate to make a beeline for the restroom, so I told him that my phone had died and asked him to call a cab for me.  He looked very confused and continued to check in other guests, so I made a mad dash to the restroom.  As soon as I got back to the front door, he asked me where I had been, and I ignored his question and asked about my cab.  He called one for me and then we chatted for about 15 minutes...I was learning way more than I needed to know and there was still no sign of a cab!!  He must have gotten tired of talking to me because he eventually asked me how I had gotten into the city, and told me that I might want to take an Uber back home  {I'm not sure why he thought I would still be waiting for a cab if Uber was an option}  Anyway I ended up leaving and went back out to look for a cab again--and after another forever long wait, someone finally pulled over.  It took me 2 hours from the end of my run and $20.00 to travel 3.5 miles but I was thrilled to finally be home!  I immediately plugged in my phone and had 16 messages from every member of my family.  During all of this time, my mom had come to the conclusion that I had been abducted {watching TAKEN one too many times will do that to you} and had called everyone in the family.  I'm not sure how I always seem to end up in situations like this but if there's a harder more complicated way to do anything, I will find it!  I spent the rest of the weekend relaxing and then church and traditional Sunday dinner with my sister.  The weekend went by way too quickly but Happy Monday!

Off the Shoulder




Dress: Zara | Flats: Vince Camuto | Bag: Kate Spade | Necklace: BP | Sunglasses: BP

Happy Wednesday…Even though the "Off the Shoulder" trend has been around for a while, this is a first for me--I really love it.  And of course it's black and white {my favorite!}  Today is my first day off in 6 days so I'm excited to catch up on life & tackle my giant To-Do list!  Have a great day!

Denim on Denim






Shirt: Old Navy, similar | Jeans: Mother | Booties: Dolce Vita | Clutch: Moda Luxe | Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters

Happy Wednesday! I wore this outfit out and about this past weekend to run some errands and out to dinner.  The past few weeks have flown by because when I haven't been at work, I've been catching up on Junior League points {so close to meeting all of my requirements!!}  or working out because I'm running in a 5K here in 10 days…at this rate walking mostly.

Charleston







 Dress: Anthropologie | Sandals: Bamboo | Hat: Anthropologie, similar | Clutch: H&M 

Happy Hump Day.  This is the first chance I've had to post since I got back from vacation.  I wore this dress in Charleston a few weeks ago while visiting the city with my mom.  I love everything about it; it's such a great summer/beach dress.  Coming back to DC and seeing snow was not exactly what I had in mind...fingers crossed sunny weather is on the way to me.  I've been playing catch up in so many areas lately and forgetting to make time for the things I enjoy-- making plans to change that right now!
