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.

Spring Plaid

Posts like this are a personal reminder why I’m not a dedicated style blogger. One, my style would be so boring because I wear stripes + neutrals at least twice a week and two, there are some style things I just really don’t have a knack for–one of which is the front tuck (another is pattern mixing for men, if you’re curious.)

Striped Tank + Blazer

Navy blazer and striped top

Happy Wednesday, friends! It finally kind of feels like spring, and that’s about the time of year when I start wearing blazers more regularly because depending on the temperature variation in a day, blazers typically mean you don’t need outerwear! This particular one sold out in most sizes almost immediately, but there are still a couple in the sale section. The good news is that I think they knew how popular it was and I actually saw some black ones in store a few weeks ago. Fingers crossed for at least next fall! If you do snag one, go down by at least one size (I’m wearing an XS and am usually a 6 in blazers.)
