This year I did all I could to make my mother’s birthday the best it could be! I woke up earlier than her to make funfetti pancakes and blueberry coffee (in their coffee maker; which for me is a challenge as I’m a Keurig girl!). She loved her breakfast and relaxed all morning while i fixed up her bathroom with her tangible gift; a sand and seashell square-‘quarium’ alongside Seagrass and Seashore scented candles.
I took her out to lunch to an esteemed nearby eatery we’d never been to, Not Your Average Joe’s. We enjoyed a fresh pitcher of sangria, while she dined on vegetarian lasagne and I had a veggie burger with fries. It was an exceptional suburban dining experience and my mom seemed to thoroughly enjoy herself, to my pleasure.
She went to work, then a work meeting, then home to a homecooked seafood meal by my father and a chocolate tiered cake.
Happy Birthday Mom! ❤
Now, what I wore:

Friday night I was invited to attend the in-store launch for DC brand House of Versatile Style.
This gorgeous little boutique located right in the sweet and serene Clinton Hill, Brooklyn carries a number of lines and has no just began carrying HVS (House of Versatile Style). The event itself was a blast; a small intimate group of fashion and beauty bloggers, including my dear Monroe, with delectable sangria and cupcakes in a range of flavors. The designs being sold by HVS are a curation of the past couple of season’s lines, but still just as fashionable with shiny, sparkly, tribal, and versatile pieces. The store will also be carrying some HVS jewelry which is just as flashy and are great statement pieces.
