..Houndstooth

..Houndstooth

Pouch // Skirt // Case // Sweater // Shoes // Bag // Scarf // Dress


I don't know why, but houndstooth print screams "class act" to me despite the bizarre moniker. I love a really bold pattern and this one is great because it's sophisticated enough to rock to the office since it's a classic and it matches everything else you own. Black and white make any other color look more vibrant and better dontcha think?

..Peplum Skirts & Felt Hats

15390382977_fc098178a1_b
The deets: Daniel Rainn top (similar); J.Crew skirt (similar); Nordstrom hat (similar); BCBGeneration booties (other open toe bootie options); Clinique "A Different Grape" lipstick; J.Crew necklace (this one is similar colors and on sale); similar clutch; bracelet c/o INPINK.

I wore this outfit when I was up in Connecticut for my boyfriends birthday last month. His twin goes to grad school at Yale (and obviously they share a birthday) so we visited for the weekend. We had the most crazy gorgeous weather and we actually had so much fun. I got to experience New Haven style pizza, meet lots of extended family members, and hit the town at night. We ended up at a bar called the Russian Lady that was this cool pub/club. Who know Yale kids could party so hard?

Girls. Let's get serious for a second. Who doesn't feel their absolute best after a fresh blowout? When your mane is in check the rest of your body just seems to follow suit, am I right? What if I told you that you could get hooked up with one for FREE and on a FRIDAY no less (a.k.a the BEST day to get one so you can stay fresh and fly all weekend)? Well you can! Bubbles Salon at Pentagon Row in Arlington (previously Colorworks) is giving them away for their grand opening on October 24th! Schedule one and come hang out with me this Friday.

..Fancy Faux Fur

The deets: J.Crew chambray; Baublebar necklace; BCBGeneration booties; AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans; Allen Schwartz faux fur vest (old, but here is a great selection of fur vests); Steve Madden bag.

Sometimes when it's finally Saturday and you have plans to go out with some friends you just gotta let your inner rockstar come out. It's nice to ditch the pencil skirt and really glam it up once and a while, which is exactly what I did for a night of drinks, dancing, and a really great live music at a local watering hole.

..Cozy Sweater Four Ways

..Cozy Sweater Four Ways
As the temps begin to drop, I start going into straight cold-prep beast mode. One item everyone needs in their arsenal is a neutral colored cozy knit sweater. Of course you can pick one up basically anywhere this time of year but I am a girl that likes to take traditional things and put a spin on them. For this reason, I am really digging Shopbop's selection of chunky knits with a twist. Here are four ways to make this basic piece seem fresh.
