October Rains; still decently warm but the wet leaves pose as a reminder of the coming cold. I’m embracing transitional styles; sleeveless leather and open tow mules (love the 90s reinvention!). Thrown in with some polarized and eco-friendly sunglasses and some glam jewels and I’m feeling like my edgy self!
There’s been this mural by my apartment for ages, and I’ve always liked it for it’s visionary; picture ginger and mint together…
The restaurant closed a few months ago, and I’ve been dying to get my butt over to shoot in front of this before they repaint it, but had to find the perfect look and weather, and I think I nailed it!
Also, how do y’all like my new hair!? I’ve realized, through my TimeHop app, that every February brings major hair changes. 2009 I went from blonde and pink to bold red, 2011 I went bolder red, last year I opted for dark locks and this year? Short and chic…VA VA VOOM

I chose this song for today’s blog post 1, because Beyonce’s new album was heavenly and this song is one of fourteen beautiful songs on the album, and 2, because try as he may have to avoid getting in these shots for the blog, my boyfriend fails and is creepily in the shadows. :p Good thing he rocks some good style!
This look is more of an office type look for me, cozy, conservative, but still a bit fun. This snood was one of my christmas gifts, and thankfully I received it in time for this big deep freeze; it’s perfectly cozy, chic and oh so warm!

Another fun double-style post! The beau and I, as style savvy folks, love getting dolled up and going out on dates. We wore these out to dinner at an amazing DC Meditteranian restaurant called Zaytinya. They had a hearty amount of veg-friendly dishes, served tapas style which meant sharing, and I had my first taste of Ouzo!velvet GAP dress thrifted via Savers/Value Village

I don’t know what it is, but it seems like every Presidents’ Day I go shopping and score some amazing deals from all the sales! This year was no exception; scored me some Prabal Gurung for Target (possibly my favorite Target collab ever), some indulgent magazines (I can’t wait to see where Joanna Coles brings Cosmopolitan!) and this killer high waisted leather skirt and Hogwarts tee from Savers! The sale at my fave thrift store was too good to be true; the tee was $1.50 and the skirt… TWO DOLLARS. Far too good a deal!
Did you do any sale shopping over the weekend!?
I’m leaving for Baltimore and Washington DC tomorrow, and it will be a pretty low-key and relaxing trip, but be sure to follow me on my social networks to keep up with all the fun I’m having!
I’ve definitely been toying with the 90’s grunge comeback with this look; I’ve had this shimmery dress FOREVER but have always had difficulty styling it, but I think I’ve nailed it here. The 90’s would be proud. I’ve also been doing this thing where I attach/embed the music that inspired the title of each blog post, do you guys like that? I figured it’s a good way to incorporate and add new things to my blog and share some of my musical faves with you! Let me know if you readers like it or find it a bother!?
