Pleated

Photos by: Julien Garman

Alright, alright. I was avoiding the midi skirt trend, then I realized the error in my ways and finally gave in. It works so well for me in my life right now. I don't have a ton of money to spend on clothes, so I always like to buy pieces that are versatile. Whatever I purchase needs to go from work to play with ease, and this pleated midi skirt does exactly that. Plus, it's fun for when you want to have a post-lunch twirl session (I do this more often than you would think.)

This skirt screams spring, so I decided to tone it down a bit and give myself an extra layer of warmth with my trusty Free People vegan leather jacket. I can't wait to rock this in the summer and play around with some brighter color combinations. Yellow is my favorite color, and I sadly don't have enough of it in my closet.

Happiness Is...

Photos by: Lisa Chiu

This is seriously one of the happiest times of year for me. Yes, it might even be happier than the holiday season. Everyone in D.C. is coming out of hibernation, and my social life is a jumpin' jumpin' yet again. It's time to get off the couch and explore the parts of the city that you haven't experienced yet. Trust me, y'all. D.C. seems endless. I haven't brunched at the same place twice in 2014 yet. Not to mention, there's so many awesome festivals and events going on in the area as well. 

I think I'm the most ecstatic about the fact that it is finally sandal season. Get your pedicures, ladies. It's now time to don your best open-toed shoes. These DV by Dolce Vita strappy sandals have lasted me 4 seasons. How insane is that? I'll definitely invest in a few more Dolce Vita sandals this season.

Groundbreaking

I think I can speak for just about everyone in D.C. when I say that I did not want this weekend to end. Cherry Blossoms, a blogger ride at Revolve, and oh yeah -- that impeccable weather? Come back! Well, on the upside, I'm in a very good mood this Monday morning from all of this weekend's festivities!

The title of this post is totally ironic, by the way. If you're reading this blog, I really hope you understand my Devil Wears Prada references. I was inspired to mix prints after my feature in The Everygirl, and stripes + florals is a pretty classic combo if I do say so myself.

Styled by Shell B

I've been teasing you all for the past few weeks on social media about this project, and I'm happy to finally debut the end result. As some of you know, I recently participated in an amazing style project with the one and only Shell B. She worked with me and 13 other D.C. area bloggers and had us all identify a "trouble" piece in our closet. She then worked her magic, shopped around in our closets and created chic ensembles for all of us.

I chose this striking ASOS skirt as my trouble piece. I'm obsessed with it, but it's been sitting in my closet for a while since I wasn't coming up with very many outfit combos for this unique piece. Shell B then took pieces that I already had in my closet and came up with this amazing ensemble. The best part of Shell B's styling session is that she really listened to me and understood my own personal style. I'm ecstatic that I am finally able to reveal this project, because now I can finally go out and about in this perfect ensemble.
