Want to leave him speechless on Valentine’s Day? Check out all the amazing dresses from Speechless to find your perfect look for date night.
I picked the Speechless hi-low dress in the navy since it can be both fun and formal! It’s still pretty cold in D.C.; therefore, I’ve paired the dress with a fur collar accent. I also really like hi-low dresses because they are much easier to walk in than a regular maxi.
Here are are a few other Valentine’s Day dresses that I’ve worn in the past:
I talk a lot about outerwear, but today, I’m talking about the essentials of any closet – your underwear and bra.
Today, I’m baring it all to share with you unmentionables that should be mentioned – thanks to True & Co.
They are a San Francisco based, female-run and operated company dedicated to making better bras based on feedback from their community. Before purchasing, you take a “fit quiz” to help you select the perfect pieces for your body.
I’m wearing the True Body Triangle Racerback and matching True Everyday Cotton Thong. I love that it is seamless and is as comfortable as a sports bra but as chic as my Victoria Secret bras. These have just enough padding so you can wear them underneath t-shirts or fancy blouses without showing how “nippy” it might be outside.
I will also definitely be packing these for my holiday travels this season. They are super comfortable, while still providing enough support for long car rides, train rides or flights – however you are getting home for the holidays this year.
I’m also rooting for Idris Elba to be the next James Bond – who else is with me?
Nothing says spring like metallic hues! This skirt is an oldie. I last styled it here. I’ve opted for lighter and brighter color combo this time. This Zara top is my new favorite white blouse for the office. I’ve paired it with a colorful bralette underneath – a good way to get away with wearing a low-cut top. These neutral suede Vince Camuto heels are also a favorite. They are from a couple seasons ago, but the lavender hue is not only the “it” color this season, it’s also a great neutral color to pair with a variety of looks. I styled them last here.
Don’t mind me double fisting ice cream. You would be too if you had Jeni’s! It’s one of my favorite ice cream chains. It was started in 2002 and only uses Fair Trade ingredients with no extra additives. As my partner would say – all killer, no filler – when it comes to its taste.
I first discovered Jeni’s in Atlanta, which is why I’m excited that they’ve now opened a location in DC!
I’m styling old closet favorites, but I’ve linked up to similar styles below for you to shop.
Kate Spade has been a fashion icon for me for many years. This is my first Kate Spade New York purse.
I couldn’t afford to buy one when I first graduated college and started working, but after a few years of saving I splurged on this classic dome purse in Kate Spade’s signature cream and black. I still use this purse today. Like this bag, Kate Spade’s style stood the test of time, giving confidence to women on main street like myself.
The entire fashion industry mourns her loss, but we all know she is leaving a glittery trail behind her in the skies above us.
This week reminds me that we never truly know what someone else might be struggling with. It’s brave to ask for help, this is a 24/7 hotline 1-800-273-8255.
Happy hump day! I’m ready for the weekend! How about you?
These Blank Denim vegan leather trousers are my new favorite going out pants! They are cruelty free, but look amazing! I’ve kept it simple with a black blouse and trench, but my ASOS shoes bring just the right amount of glitter. I’ve linked to a few other great glittery options below.
Boulangerie Christophe is the most charming French bakery in Georgetown. They have the best coffee, bread and baked goods that will transport you to Paris. They also offer private dining experiences if you want to rent out the upstairs for special occasions.
Cherry blossoms have me adding pink floral accents to every look I wear lately. I cycled down Rock Creek Park to see the cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin a couple of weekends ago, and I had to wear my Kate Spade floral scarf to dress up this weekend uniform of jeans, white button-up and converse sneakers.
While you are reading this, I’m exploring Vancouver. We’re taking the week to drive around Vancouver Islands and down the West Coast to Seattle and Portland. Follow my travel on Instagram stories, and I’ll post about our trip when I get back!
One of my favorite things about living in DC is seeing the cherry blossoms!
The long story short, Japan gifted 2000 cherry trees to the US in August 1909, but they were infested with insects after their long journey and had to be burnt. In 1912, Japan donated even more trees, this time 3,020 trees. On March 27, 1912, US First Lady Helen Herron Taft and Viscountess Chinda, wife of the Japanese ambassador at the time, planted the first two of these trees at the Tidal Basin by the National Mall. In 1915, the US responded giving Japan dogwood trees.
Many years later, after much rain, sunshine and tender loving care, the cherry blossoms bloom each spring in DC, attracting thousands to the city.
