Tonight You’re Electrical

unchained like an animal
you’re glitter and gold

You know how there’s rules to life? There’s a big one; something like “don’t start a new job, buy a house, get married, have a kid, or any combination of those in the same year”. This little lady, who’s moved and swapped jobs more times than she’d liked to admit is knocking off two within a month. NO I’m not pregnant or getting married. If you follow me on InstaGram you may have seen that Z and I have been house hunting. It started with “just looking” but we soon realized the competitive and booming real estate market that is DC. So after finding a charming 3 bedroom fixer upper, we’ve made an offer; the same day I started a new full time job.
To call me overwhelmed would be an understatement. I’m a slew of emotions ranging from nervous, scared, happy, excited, tired, stressed, creative…with 3 bedrooms we’ll have a lot of space to decorate and have already started planning, designing, pinning, and I’ve even decided there will be more decor posts here on the blog (hope that’s okay that I drag you all along on this home journey)!
As for this outfit; this is one of my go-to summer dresses. Bold color, a shape that requires no bra, and fun to play both up and down. With this new job and the home stuff, outfit posts may get a little slower but I promise the premise of this blog will not change! You will still get your recommended dose of versatile style inspiration, of that I assure you!

Staying in my Play Pretend Where the Fun ain’t got no End

It’s finally spring! Time to say hello to bare skin (and welcome back, tattoos!) Crop tops, short skirt, sunglasses….and let’s not forget the current “it” bucket bag! I’m so so in love with this bag, care of Moda Luxe. Buttery vegan leather in a perfectly bold hue, and it can be dressed up or down; hello versatility! I paired it here with a fun vibed outfit; cheeky vacation and flamingo printed skort I got at the Buffalo Exchange 40th anniversary party, along with the crop top. Topped it off with some pink accessories, and I’m ready for a sunny day!

You Make My Heavy Metal Heart Beat

You turn my red to black
I’m never coming back
The way I was before
I’m not her anymore

This little lady-rocker blogger wore this look to the CappFABB 3rd anniversary party a few weeks ago! I wanted to wear something that encapsulated my personal style, as I knew I’d be meeting a lot of new people and wanted to put on my most “me” front; that’s what fashion is for anyway, amiright!? I received plenty of compliments on my body hugging skirt, which I loved for the way it made me feel comfortable within my own size and accentuated my shape.

So about the party; I did meet a ton of amazing bloggers, some of whom we were virtual/following buddies and it was great to put facial expressions to the name and photos. I also met a whole slew of new blogger friends, whom I’m excited to spend more time with! Almost a year into my life in DC and I’m finally starting to make friends, haha! I had a wonderful time sipping on wine at Dirty Martini Bar, picking out some jewels with the CapWellCo bauble bar, and just bonding with everyone!

Garden City Plaza

I was feeling cabin feverish the other day so I decided to get outside. The Garden City shopping center in Cranston, RI was the perfect location! I could walk shop to shop between sunlight and air conditioning with my delicious Berry Hibiscus Refresher from Starbucks; damn those things are good.

Also, I get alot of questions about my tattoos and figured I’ll do a post about them. If anyone has any specific questions about them, comment with them and I’ll have them answered later this week!

What I Wore: IFB Conference Day 1

Today was the first day of the Independent Fashion Blogger’s Conference. My head is spinning as I write this (though that may be due to the open bar at the after party and then me deciding to pick up a bottle of rose on my way home). The conference was incredible, to describe it in one word. I learned SO much and was able to make new blogger friends and network. I was interviewed three times and many a photo was taken.  I plan to do a full post of both day 1 and day 2 after it is all complete, but I figured I’d do independent “what I wore” posts.
