Caught in a Rainstorm

Rainy day style

What a weekend! If you missed it, I was in NYC for Create & Cultivate this weekend–Katie and I took the train up after work on Thursday and the conference was on Saturday. It was such a fun, informative, and inspiring day…I have a recap coming (next Monday is the plan) and am excited to share more! But in the meantime, let’s talk about Friday’s outfit…

Weekend Errand Wearing

Summer stripes

This post should probably have been called “Another Striped Shirt, Vol. 12,” but instead let’s acknowledge just how easy it is to create a pulled together outfit with something so basic as a pair of pull-on shorts (#elasticwaistforthewin) and a loose striped tee. Wearing long sleeves is pretty much the worst in the summer months thanks to DC’s humidity, so I’ll take any chance I can get to pair them with shorts this time of year.

A Casual Dinner Look

Casual summer style

Heyyy friends. Starting this week is tough because this weekend was awesome. I had a Saturday Funday of sorts (no, not quite the Fraturdays in years past #college) but a bunch of us went to the 1pm Nats game, drank some beers + yard margaritas, and hung out together for the rest of the day. We went to a bar for the first Caps playoff game, still got home by 9pm, and woke up early ready to tackle Sunday…seriously the perfect kind of weekend. I never really end up taking a day fully “off” between the blog + school, so it was a fun and overdue treat even though it wasn’t productive work-wise! J and I got brunch at Tupelo Honey yesterday and had a quasi-failed attempt to pick up a few things for the apartment…turns out way more stores are closed on Easter than I thought! Some free shipping deals came through for us, though, and we snagged a couple of things from Crate & Barrel (like this utensil holder) and The Container Store.
