Mermaid inspired style

Since I was a little girl I would constantly pretend I was a mermaid.. luckily we had a swimming pool so it didn’t feel so much like pretend. There’s something so beautiful and mystical about mermaids so of course I still wish I was a mermaid! I love these wide leg pants so much because- yes you guess it- they make me feel like one of those ocean beauties! I wish they didn’t sell out before I made this post, but alas they did, so I’ve linked a few similar options that happen to be on sale too. At first I was hesitant to wear this style of pant because I am petite and worried they would overwhelm me. After trying on a few different pairs I found the perfect match with these – so my advice for this silhouette is to try, try, try on! For top options: crop tops, tucked in fitted tops, or a tee with a side knot would all work! Important thing would be to keep a definable waistline.

Get in touch with your unique style and show it off when you head out the door next- I bet you’ll make a head or two turn :)

Rosé . Pleats. and good Ole Sunshine

Give me sunshine and give me rosé. The two together along with my best gals and I am one happy lady! I am so grateful that my sister and best friends came up from Jacksonville, Fl this past weekend not only for some serious girl time, but for none other than Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour we attended on Monday night! To say the weekend was epic would be an understatement. On this particular day I took them to my favorite winery- Barrel Oak. You prob remember from my recent post here with my VA bestie Lori. They have the best customer service and the ambiance is exactly what you’d hope for your out of town guests to enjoy.

Okay, so let’s get to the good stuff. This beeeeautiful watercolor pleated Everleigh dress is on sale for only $30.80! I scooped it up at my local Nordstrom Rack on one of those shopping trips where I was super last minute with one goal in mind- my best friends are coming to town- were going to be going out and about- and I need to look cute on the fly! Hence, this perfect summer dress and at that price point I was able to get two more dresses around the same price! I highly suggest checking them out for some serious designer apparel at some rock bottom prices!

I had the BEST day yesterday with my sweet husband, Alex, exploring our neighboring city of Washington. We love when we make the time to get out there and see the sights and eat the eats. And let me tell you- there are some AMAZING eats in D.C.! We ate lunch at Buredo off 14th St. NW where we had the freshest sushi as big as a burrito!! Get it, Buredo? After lunch we walked to the critically acclaimed Astro Doughnuts! They did not disappoint! Between Sugar Shack Donuts on Tuesday, and then Astro yesterday I have had the best donuts in my life in a matter of a few days span. No my thighs are not winning, but, my sweet tooth is! I’m a good girl- usually! But we’re all human right?!

Alex and I then sought out the spot where he proposed to me three years ago on August 9th, 2012. That photo is of us standing in that very spot in the Navy memorial in the heart of D.C.! It’s not our first time back there, more like our 3rd or 4th, but every time is just as nostalgic! Talk about holy ground! Anywho, I decided to give my 4th of July inspired look a twist yesterday- literally with a side twist on my chambray tank to define a waistline (which is slowly dwindling from the donuts). I switched things up even more so by wearing my mini pleated metallic skirt. I felt like it was such a fun swap for a predictable denim or white. I have linked some very affordable metallic skirt options above- two silver & one blush metallic!

I’m feeling extremely grateful today for our freedom as Americans, and hope all of you have a fun filled day with your family and friends!! I’ll be going to the Foo Fighters concert here in D.C. today, and can’t wait to watch the firework display over their stage at nightfall!!
