Feeling French

Sunday, April 13, 2014

There's something just so French about stripes, cropped pants, flats, and a red lip, non? Pair it with my ubiquitous outfit-brightening bag and you've got the perfect outfit for a Monday morning! What clothing items make you feel French?

I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was SPLENDID in DC, so I did lots of things outside. Because what's better than being outside in sandals (!!!) and no jacket?

What I Really Wore

Friday, April 11, 2014

{J.Crew Blazer | Everlane shirt | Gap pants | Nine West shoes | Michael Kors watch | BaubleBar, Loft, and Alex and Ani bracelets | ILY Couture Necklace | ILY Couture and Madewell rings | Ray-Ban Sunnies}
Looking at these pictures, I have to say: this outfit is not my favorite. I hate when that happens. But, ti's a fact of life. What looks great in our heads might not translate to real life (or to the camera, as it may be). I'm not quite sure what I don't like. Maybe it's these pants which are sort of boyfriend-like and sort of just loose. And they always cuff in a weird place, no matter how I fold them (you don't even what to know what they look like uncuffed). Or maybe it's the combo of looser pants, looser shirt and blazer. Who knows. But this is real life, people. You aren't always thrilled with what you wear. It doesn't mean you don't get out the door and into work on time, regardless. It'll still appear on the blog because, hey, this is a blog about what I wear on a daily basis. Not about outfits I wear for the blog. And I like it that way.

The Perfect Tank

Remember when I discussed Everlane's t-shirts and mentioned that I also grabbed a couple of their tanks? Well, I'm in love. Just as wonderful as the tees. Buy them large, like I did, or fitted and use them as camis. They're perfect. I'll never buy another tank again. 

I'm so excited when I find companies whose mission I 100% support and whose products I love 150%!

Where do your favorite shirts come from?

- I'm always down for a good beauty hack. I'll be trying the spoon trick ASAP!

Hey-ho, friends! Happy April! Flowers are blooming and the Cherry Blossom Festival has started in DC. Which means TOURIST SEASON. Yay (naht). But, the blossoms should be appearing really soon, which is awesome because they're so gorgeous!

What are your plans for the weekend?
