Put a Little Dance in Your Step


Holiday season has officially begun! I’m so excited because though the holidays are fun and all it’s also mine and my beau’s birthdays! That means extra parties and so many good reasons to get dressed up! This festive look totally has me feeling like the salsa dancer emoji and I’m so not mad about it.

Vintage ReMixed


It was a blustery Sunday as I approached DC’s Yards Park. As I walked in on coupled off bloggers snapping photos I realized I probably should have had a pre-mosa, a little liquid courage before embarking on a day of meeting a slew of local bloggers. The fabulous and friendly Dani approached, offering to help take my photos as I warmed to the ideas of new pals and longing for the promised bottomless mimosas.


When you meet a woman like Dani, who I first met a few weeks prior, you’re immediately engulfed by her welcoming demeanor. In the blogging community it’s hard to find that, but Dani is down to earth and real. She’s begun organizing events for bloggers within the District and Sunday’s vintage themed #bubblesandbloggers brunch was the first one I was able to attend. After downing my first mimosa and calming my social anxiety I embraced the chatter among new friends. Agua 301 supplied the delicious food and seriously bottomless drinks while our gaggle of girls introduced ourselves and chatted about everything from our jobs (classic DC talk) to what got us started in blogging, and to what favorite apps and products we use to help our blogs.

Tanned Leather


It’s hard to believe that this time last week temperatures were near the 70s; high for November, but a welcome last hurrah. As we go into these holidays I’m loving the cozy textures ubiquitous to colder temps, while getting the last use out of my lighter bags until next spring.

Blue Jeans Gal


Vintage denim jackets with fun patches are all the rage now. I’ve shopped hard, accumulating my patches along my travels for the past year. I have my avocado patch that I picked up at the Quirk Gallery in Richmond, VA, my Huckberry patches for Zion National Park and Grand Canyon National Park, my cactus patches inspired by our trip to Texas…Pins from an Australian AirBnb guest, one from our trip down Arizona’s Route 66. These patches aren’t just a stylish statement they’re a collection, they’re a story, they’re my history. And I love to share them with anyone who glances my way.

Layers of Warmth


The temperatures are dropping very close to freezing, and so fast this year! I don’t know about you but I feel like it generally doesn’t get that cold until December, though this year winter is rearing it’s ugly head a little sooner that I was expecting. Lucky for me, a brand new Uniqlo opened up right by my work! If you haven’t heard me wax poetic about the wonders of HeatTech before, well, you’re clearly new here. Every winter I stock up on the Japanese made basics with their built-in warming technology in preparation for the North Eastern weather. With the opening of their newest mid-atlantic stores meant good shopping (admittedly, twice during the Grand Opening weekend). And with everything under $50 the prices truly can’t be beat. I mean, $10 tees and socks? YES PLEASE.  I stocked up on gifts for my family in New England, cozy socks for Z, and some beautiful layers for myself, including this shawl and turtleneck; the perfect layers for our first frigid weekend.

Leather Skirt and Harley Shirt


This fall weather is having me so excited to wear clothes again! Breaking away from breezy dresses I’m starting to get creative with layering again, and having fun with my personal style. I’m loving that graphic tees are having a moment right now — now my souvenir tee shirts get more use than sleeping clothes!

Getting My Kicks on Route 66


Being an AirBnB host we get to hear from all types of people about their favorite parts of the States. As previously stated, we set out to make 2016 the year of exploring more of our own country after hearing about it from all of our guests and last month’s trip was a great one to tack on to our logs!

After exploring Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon we set out to drive back to Las Vegas along historic Route 66 – the most famed road in all of the Americas. Passing through Williams, Arizona was a perfect spot full of “Rt. 66” kitsch to stop for lunch among a friendly town of equal parts tourists and locals. We stocked up on patches for our denim jackets, souvenirs for family and friends, and photos and memories to last a lifetime.

Dusted Pink


With this dreary weather and faltering temps it’s safe to say fall is in full effect. As sad as I am to have to be wearing tights I’m also excited to break out some sweaters and, of course, the leather jackets. I’ve been stocking up all summer with the perfect hues for my fall wardrobe; one color I can’t get enough of is a muted version of Pantone’s Rose Quartz, dusty pink.

Other fall trends I’m loving? The extension of the lace-up top trend into knits and lucite heels EVERYTHING. These ones are similar to Dior’s Spring ones but I’ve totally just ordered a velvet version of these exact boots too.

Garden of Eden


White after Labor Day is a dated faux pas. With global warming and rising temps creating longer summers, what reason is there not to wear white after a specific date? But also, what type of modern world are we living in if there are still rules to be followed about how to dress? Err go, break the old timey rules and usher in the new era of fashion; anything goes and style is better than fashion.

Whatever, As If


Don’t let the title fool you into thinking  this post is about anything boring.

What they say about the Zion National Park is true; it is awe-inspiring, breathtaking, humbling… it makes you feel small, makes you feel grateful for this life you’ve been given.

After our one night in Vegas we set out early for southern Utah’s big National Park. We had plans to do The Narrows hike (a deep, canyon hike through about a foot of water for 5 hours- fun!) but with threats of an incoming storm we were left to hike second best – Angel’s Landing. Before the rains started we were already well on our way to a gorgeous hike.
