Madewell Sale!!

Who doesn't love a good sale?!

I am always on the lookout for a great deal. One of my favorite places for staples and classic pieces is Madewell. I love their t shirts and leather sandals and dresses.

I snagged this cute sand tank from them. It has a fringe hem! I love the little details.

You can find the tank top here.  To get an extra 20% off, use the code META20

I am excited to share with you a post I have been working on! It will be going live Monday morning, so stay tuned!

The One with the Orange Kimono

Today embarks the beginning of grad festivities. All of my immediate family has flown in (sans my adorable niece and her momma) and also my auntie/godmom. I am waiting on my absolute best friend, but she is coming tomorrow evening!

You never know what NC weather will throw at you. Yesterday it stormed frantically, and the roads were flooded. Today it was 82, but absolutely stunning. 

I am obsessed with crop tops and skirts (Thanks, T Swift!). They are the perfect combination for date nights or fun summer days.  

I added my cheetah print vans and my new kimono. I adore the color and am glad I can transition it into my fall wardrobe. 

I love these "vans." They are from J. Crew, and I wear them all the time!

I am so glad my family has arrived! I adore them and am glad they are here to celebrate my collegiate accomplishments. 

The Flowery Dress

I love floral dresses! I am not the biggest pattern person, but for some reason I do love a nice floral pattern.

My friend Taylor noted that this could easily be a fall dress as well--it is perfect for tailgate season! 

It was a great dress for today's excursions and it is super comfy. 

Today was so fabulous! We walked quite a bit though, and these boots were not made for walking distances. My feet kinda hate me right now.

My friend Katie and I outside of the National Archives. Not going to lie...I was totally thinking about National Treasure!

We spent the day at the National Gallery and it was so great! Taylor adores art, so she was in heaven. I love impressionism and anything French, so I soaked in some time with my good friend Monet.

Hope your day was fab!

Tassels and Tunics

Today was my first full day in DC! To recap you on the craziness that is my life, I finished college this week. Our school has a week break between classes ending and commencement, so I roadtripped to DC with some of my friends. 

We got in last night and rewarded ourselves with some margs! If you are near DuPont Circle, go to Mission DuPont! 

We did lots of walking today (close to 7 miles) and had amazing food. We started off the day at Ted's Bulletin, which is famous for its homemade pop tarts. 

We got the strawberry flavored one! It was yummy, but a bit too sweet to start the morning off with.

I absolutely love to explore and wander, so today was perfect for that! We went to Eastern Market, and Chinatown. If you like books, check out the bookstore Capital Hill Books. It is in an old house, is covered with books, and has great prices!

 

I am not a jeans person, but I do love these ripped jeans. They are comfy and good for a street style look.

I absolutely love this tunic/shirt. The pompoms/tassels are so cute and the little V shows the perfect amount of cleavage. My orange bag is a staple because it holds everything and is a good pop of color!

Comment below with your D.C. suggestions!

Black on Black

First: Thank you for all your kind words and support about my last post. My dad was a special person and hopefully you could see glimpses of that in my writing. I am deeply appreciative of each one of you!

If you haven't noticed, I love the color black. Maybe its because I always hang out with my friend Taylor, or maybe its because black looks good on everyone. Anyway, I am a firm believer in the power of a black dress. Black dresses are a wardrobe staple for me, and I will wear them until the day I die!

I added some leopard print boots to break up the black, a gold knot necklace, and some blue earrings! 

This is a fun look for a festival (I wore this dress once) or just a casual night out. 

Tonight I am making halibut and I am looking forward to sharing that recipe with y'all soon!
