Let's Go Nats!

Sunday, October 27, 2019

What's my excuse for the latest mini-blogging hiatus? I've been completely immersed in the Nats' post-season run the last few weeks. Staying up late to catch games in their entirety plus all the post-game shenanigans has me walking around like a zombie at work and guzzling coffee like it's my only source of nutrient. You know what though? It's all been so worth it. 2019 has the makings of the greatest sporting year of my life, first with my beloved Hoos winning their first ever NCAA basketball championship... and now, the Nats 2 games away from their first ever World Series? Pinch me, I must be dreaming. #FINISHTHEFIGHT

More Cognac, Please

Thursday, October 17, 2019

A month ago, I wore this top and skirt combo with "summer" accessories. As the seasons change, so do the accessories. I probably went a bit overboard piling on all the cognac colors from my closet, but really, who can resist this warm brown color? It's gorgeous and such a great transition color for fall. Not to mention, it pairs wonderfully with navy and white. So, bring on all the cognac!

Fall.

Friday, October 11, 2019

Usually by this time of the year, I would have already jumped the gun and busted out my fall jackets. Multiple times. Sweating just a tad in the early stages of fall while sipping a pumpkin spice latte is like a rite of passage. Nope, not this year. I waited until I absolutely had to without jeopardizing my health. True to form though, once I'm in, I'm in. There's no such thing as going overboard with all the fall accessories -- scarf, suede (love this bag, btw! drapes so well), and of course bare legs while I'm bundled up like an eskimo on the top half. Welcome to fall and happy layering, everyone!

Back to Basics

Monday, September 30, 2019

Never in my life have I worn a pair of jeans that fit perfectly off the rack without any (faux or real) alterations whatsoever. Until today! Boyfriend jeans don't count because they're meant to be baggy. In the past, I always got the length hemmed or simply folded any excess fabric over/under to shorten the hem. Most of the time, the fit is fine around the waist and hips. The minute I tried on these J.Crew jeans, I finally understood why women rush out to stock up once they've found their holy grail of jeans. Nothing makes you feel more confident than a pair of perfectly-fitting jeans. This was also the first time I tried high-waisted jeans, and... I'm smacking myself for dismissing them in favor of low-waisted jeans for years. But, better late than never, right?

Weekend Vibes in a Wicker Basket

Sunday, September 22, 2019

As summer is winding down around us, I'm trying to not get ahead of myself. Just living in the moment, enjoying wearing summer pieces a few last times, sipping iced cold drinks, and even not complaining about the humidity (ha!) Fall will be upon us soon enough and there will be plenty of time to wear layers then.
