I’ll admit - sometimes I live in my own world. Ever since, well, forever, I’ve wanted to live a European lifestyle...Read More
It's been a crazy Fall so far, but in the most wonderful way. Between NYFW, special holiday projects and just daily life at the 9-5, I'm doing my very best to just keep my head above water. The great news is - I have so many exciting posts to share with you...the problem is finding the time to get them all up on here! But don't fret - I promise they're coming. ;)
How great is this midi skirt from Rent the Runway? I rented it for NYFW and wore it to a ton of events. (Even if it was over 90 degrees outside - the things we do for fashion!) This would be perfect for an upcoming holiday party with a chunky sweater or silky blouse too.
I'll let you in on a little secret - this outfit has been sitting on my camera since NYFW for a while, so rather than go into the nitty gritty of why I wore the outfit, I thought I'd just share the photos with you. I mean, THE VIEW. Do I really need to say anything else?
I had written them off. The bottom of my legs would get claustrophobic just thinking about squeezing into a pair of skinny jeans. Threw out my last pair a few months ago. GOOD RIDDANCE. Or so I thought.
Then Piperlime sent me some of their favorite fall pieces…and guess what was on the list? You guessed it. SKINNY JEANS. I about had a heart attack. What if they didn’t even fit? I immediately regretted the (numerous) pieces of pumpkin pie from the night before, as well as the (too many to count) pumpkin cookies I had the night before that. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!
I slipped them on, and literally gasped. They fit over my legs! And they were sooo comfortable! Like soooo comfortable. I looked at the tag - relaxed skinny jeans. So that was the key. They’re like boyfriend jeans and skinny jeans mixed together - these pants are the best of both worlds.
I’m also loving this floral bomber jacket! My husband took a few flying lessons (he’s basically a pilot) and so now I feel uber cool hanging with him. Like I’m part of the cool kids crowd. I pushed up the sleeves since we’ve been experiencing some warmer-than-usual weather back east. Obviously, I had to wear my aviator style sunnies.
Shout out to Piperlime who was so sweet to share some of their fave fall styles with me so I could share my #momentsofchic with you!
I love bright colors - the brighter the better. But look in my closet? Blacks, navys, whites, off-whites, more shades of white and brown. Of course, I have splatters of pink and purple, but the majority are neutrals. So one day, I decided to put on all the beige things for work and VIOLA! The result is as follows.

DC’s weather is a hot mess. One minute it’s 90 degrees and you can’t stop sweating (err, *glistening*) - the next it’s torrential downpour and you, of course, forgot your umbrella. Or is that just me? Literally I only forget to bring my umbrella on days when it rains.
When I spotted this pretty blazer from Anthom, I knew it’d be perfect for those drizzly, cooler evenings in DC. I love how it drapes and the inside lining is satin which is AMAZING. Plus, I love a double duty jacket I can wear for work and after hours!
Next week, I’ll be sharing some photos I shot at Anthom after their store opening. Their new store is in Mosaic District, and if you haven’t visited, I HIGHLY encourage it. I am dying to return for this cropped blouse and these copper hangers.
