Welcome back and welcome Monday! I spent the weekend in Cleveland with my family and friends. It was so nice to be home and try new things that weren’t in Cleveland when I left.
But, alas, these photos weren’t taken in Cleveland. I wish I was quick like that! These were from a day when Dan and I went down to the Georgetown waterfront to drink some coffee and enjoy a stroll. I always find myself overdressed for these occasions.
Well HELLO lovely people! I haven’t posted since…last Thursday. Yikes. Then with the holiday last weekend, Sarah and I decided to take a week off from the linkup. But I’ve been busy! Since recovering from my respiratory virus (yuck) I went to NYC, enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July, and worked my butt off at my job. Between all that, sadly, there was hardly any time for blogging.
BUT I’m back with this amazing yet simple striped top and distressed jeans. And alas, I’m lamenting that I don’t have abs like these anymore.
Summer travel is one of my favorite things to do, and I have a lot of it coming up! But a horror story plays out in my mind. I’m in Bora Bora staying in a gorgeous little floating hut. My husband throws me in the water while I’m wearing my huge $175,000 diamond earrings and one falls off and I burst into tears knowing my earrings now belong to the fishes. Just kidding – that wasn’t me, it was Kim Kardashian, but it could happen to any of us.
My point is that traveling with valuable things like my iPad, computer, and jewelry is always risky for fear of it being broken or stolen. But how can a girl like me (or KimK for that matter) travel without her beloved accessories? Just because I’m in a different state/country doesn’t mean I can’t be my stylish self. So through my travels, I’ve figured out ways to keep my jewelry safe and intact.
That MONDAY feeling. I am sick as a dog with some kind of virus. The strep test came back negative so I’m over here living on Mucinex and nasal spray and waiting for it to pass. I watched about 8 episodes of Orange Is The New Black and the classic An American In Paris yesterday. But I’m basically worthless.
Today’s outfit and excursion contains some of my favorite pieces and things of all time! 1. Cuddy Studio’s fun print romper; 2. Winkwood’s gorgeous wood sunglasses; 3. Mel Boteri’s genius convertible bag; and 4. the best gluten-free treats in DC.
It’s finally summer and I am SO HAPPY! It has been a hot second since I created a collage like this one, but I felt the urge to make one in honor of summer. I love wearing girly flowy things, swimsuits, hats, straw bags, you name it. I wish it could be summer all year round. Umm maybe I should just move to Florida.
I have so many fun things planned this summer that I need outfits for! I’m going to Rhode Island for a bachelorette party for my dear friend from 2nd grade, events around DC, and France with Dan in August!
