First thing first I’m the realest
Drop this and let the whole world feel itSo many new things in these photos; the beau and I got a new bar for the home, needless to say our friends love coming over even more now. This tank, which I’m having a GIVEAWAYfor, is from ByLucianaM, who has amazing cheeky tees and tanks like this one! I love that, on such a beautiful day of enjoying quality time with friends I was able to rock a statement of “get off the internet”. Also new, this CheapMonday skirt from ShopCalico! I bought it for my upcoming trip to Mexico, but with the temperate weather this past weekend I needed to break it out early. While these sunglasses are older, as the weather picks up I’ve been on the hunt for new sunglasses and one of the greatest resources I’ve found is this face shape resource from BonLook. It’s a great way to figure out which styles will look best on my rounded face shape! With all these fancy new things and the weather, the man and I opened the windows, made some cocktails, and sat outside to drink and soak up some much needed vitamin D!
Life in DC is ever-changing for me; I crave stability. I’m getting to that age of settling and nesting, yet don’t yet have the means or life stability to accomplish this. So I keep on trucking, faking it till I make it, or something like that. Just Keep Swimming, I tell myself, and feign everything I desire to be true. I apologize for the lack of updates; it’s hard meeting people in this judgemental and cliquey city as an outsider, whether that be quality photographers for my bloggy here, or friends to dine and drink with. It’s never been this hard; a social life is just another thing for me to fake till I have right now. At least I can look good while I do it.

Everyday I wake up,
I choose Love
I choose Light Not my usual style, but more of a style I wish I could wear more often. Why doesn’t my life call for comfy capri pants and embellished peplum tops more often!? What’s a girl got to do to have more occasions to wear fancy clothes? That’s right; make her own. Throw on some party music and glam it up for…for the cats, I suppose! Why not?
I’m currently coveting an office job where jeans become a Friday only affair; am I just lusting to grow up too soon?

So let’s raise the bar and our cups to the stars
We’re up all night ’til the sun
We’re up all night to get some
We’re up all night for good fun
We’re up all night to get luckyI think I’ve found my summer jam; Daft Punk’s vibe to this song is SO FUN and Pharell’s voice is so smooth, and even though I’m no longer in my teenage years of frivolousness, I’m still up for staying out all night for sun and fun! Now, just add in these PERFECT tropical print jeans and the white oxfords and I’ve got quite a cozy and chic look for summer, dontcha think!? Also, why have I never had Joe’s Jeans before!? THEY ARE SO COMFY!
This look has been in my mind for weeks now, and I finally wore it. Something about it just screams “Parisian”; Is it the stripes? The baroque printed skirt? The Prada knock-off sunnies? Or the combination of the lot?
I’m BACK! After a tumultuous October, I’m finally getting my life, and that includes this blog, back on track! The weather here in New England has been rather temperate, even with the impending Hurricane Sandy. I celebrated by going out in shorts, albeit UniqLo HeatTech, but still!
I’ve got some posts queued up for you and some things in the works for all you loyal followers. Thanks so much for following and being so patient, and for all of your kind words in my time of absence! ❤
