Hey Everyone! So this shoot was a little different, but so much fun. Chrystalain, my fab photog, wanted to try out new lighting and it resulted in photos that look a little Hollywood-esq. At least to us!

Another fun note about this look is the steal I found on this clutch! Never ever have I seen a black Hobo clutch at such a great price! (For a staple color, it's unheard of!) Also, the faux fur coat that you've seen me in before (here and here) was another great find-- it was free! It's definitely a vintage piece, but I don't have much information about it other than it's by a Sydney designer and the materials were made in England.

Are you wondering about my manicure? I've been over the accent nail for a while now, so it surprised me that I even thought of doing this at all. I just felt like I wanted one nail painted. Random! A few years ago, I remember a model having done this, so maybe the memory of that snuck back into my head.

Thanks so much for reading and checking out the blog. Be sure to leave your comments below. We love hearing from our readers!

Often times when the season teases a change, we pull out the new trends in anticipation that the.sun.will.stay. In this case: Spring.

Instead of breaking out all of your neons and pastels, try working a few pieces into your current wardrobe. That's what I did here with a brighter blue added to my skirt and boots look.

Fortunately, this look took me from day to night! I met up with some friends for Young the Giant concert at The Fillmore in Silver Spring. Check out some awesome photos from Reflection Photography below and here! They were fantastic and the opening band, Cayukas, wasn't too bad either (I especially liked their song, Hella. So west coast!)

Light + Reflection

There's a lot of beauty that surrounds us when the light shines. It illuminates the details of things we take for granted everyday. Each of us has our own light to share and it's important that we keep calling it out from each other.

My outfit speaks to this, too. The detailing of each piece shows better in the light; and the bold pink lip calls the focus to stay there. (What's not to love about that?!)

Let your light shine and reflect in the world!

The Ocean Calls

In a matter of hours, I'll be boarding a plane to Dominica. I'd be lying if I said I was going to miss being here!

Here's a sneak peak into my suitcase. I packed not one, but two fringe bikinis that I recently snagged at Target. I've been yearning for one for a while! I think they will pair perfectly with the Caribbean Sea! What do you think?

Last Minute Fancy

After months of not so patiently waiting, my vacation is finally almost here! Tomorrow my family and I will be taking a red eye flight to Dominica to see my husbands family.  

Since I'm boycotting winter and heading to the tropics, I made it a point to squeeze in a quick pedi! And of course I had to bring my partner in crime with me:)

La Bicyclette

The sun is shining and the ducks are out! It's a perfect day to wear my la bicyclette top. I love the image on the front of it. It's a nice reminder that spring is just around the corner. And although I'm not much of a cyclist, I am a la runner;)

Sun Craze

You know, there's a saying around Seattle: Sun does not equal warmth! The deception used to drive me crazy when I lived there. Now, even though I'm not deceived by its teasing glow, it still makes me a little crazy (can you tell?).  I think the only solution is that summer needs to be here. Tomorrow.

On a style note, I absolutely LOVE this sweater! If it wasn't on it's way to the dry cleaner right now I'd wear it again tomorrow.

NYFW #StreetStyle

"Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future... this is known as Fashion Week." - Carrie Bradshaw 

It's always fun to check out NYC street style, especially when it's the season of beautiful chaos. AW14 collections are being shown around the globe; here are some of my fav captures from the fashion capital by Adam Katz Sinding for W Magazine.
