Yay for Friday! Sometimes our “going out” look can get a bit tiresome. We wear the same combination of dresses and heels that we know look great together. It’s time to spice it up a bit! Today I’ve put together a date night look that is sure to impress. The dress shows some skin, but with a little self-tanner I… View Post
One of the best times of year in DC is the Cherry Blossom Festival. For two weeks the city is in full bloom, especially around the Tidal Basin near the Jefferson Memorial. With work and travel it was a struggle to get down there to see the spectacle. The crowds are ridiculous on the weekends, so driving is not really… View Post
This week’s refreshment is the espadrille. I love them because they are fun and casual, but come in all shapes and sizes.

I was looking through the post and comments, and it made me so happy that you are all as big of fans as I am! Their new spring items never disappoint! I had absolutely no trouble finding some more pieces to include in… View Post
We had so much fun at the Omni Bedford Spring Resort this weekend. You can also read a little about it in yesterday’s post. The design and color schemes in each grand room are impeccable. I loved looking around at the different wallpapers, fun furniture, and whimsical carpeting. The spa at the resort is especially nice. I had a much… View Post
This weekend Dan and I took a weekend trip to one of our favorite destinations: the Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Bedford, Pennsylvania. Just a 2.5 hour drive from DC, the Omni Bedford is like a little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Dan and I were engaged at this lovely historical retreat in January of… View Post
