Red, White &Blue

2019 Fashion, Fashion, Favorite Features

Looking for some red, white and blue inspiration for July 4th? This tri-color, while also patriotic, is also one of my favorite summer color combos. I wear it a lot – see here and here.

This year, I’ll be spending the holiday with my family in Virginia Beach, camping, grilling out and kayaking. How are you spending the time?

I’ve restyled this Chicwish skirt, which I last styled with a white off the shoulder top here. Which styling of it do you like the best?

The skirt is very versatile and fun to mix and match! It’s perfect for BBQs, picnics and fun day out!

Tusculum Farm, Chicwish Dress, Kate Style Petite, DC

Tusculum Farm

Fashion, Favorite Features

Looking for a charming wedding venue close to Washington, D.C., or just a weekend escape from the city? Look no farther than Tusculum Farm, which has been converted into a quaint bed and breakfast with a luxurious pool. There’s also a small lake and barn that would make for a charming backdrop for a wedding.

The original cottage was built in 1747, and the owner’s have done a wonderful job maintaining the property while keeping its authenticity. You can rent out the entire farm or just come stay for a weekend – either way, you’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated after your stay! I can’t wait until I can make it back out for a visit!

Eshakti Spring Dress

2019 Fashion, Fashion, Favorite Features, Spring, Summer

This dress is a statement on its own with its fun print and bright colors! I’ve received so many compliments from wearing this fun dress – especially because it has pockets!

This dress will be perfect for special occasions like Easter brunch or for a Spring or Summer wedding.

I love that Eshakti allows you to personalize with your preferred sleeve length, neckline, and also your body measurements. This bespoke model guarantees you will always fit the garment!

Chicwish Tulle Skirt

2019 Fashion, Fashion, Favorite Features, Summer

Feeling fancy since today is my Friday this week! I’m off to celebrate my sister’s bachelorette in Sedona, Arizona! I only wish I had the luggage space to pack this tulle skirt.

I’ve never ordered anything from Chicwish before, but my first experience is wonderful! The quality is great! I love how full this skirt is and the femme fatale color is just the right amount of romance.

If you are petite, like me, do carefully look at their measurements they list online. This tulle skirt is a little bit loose on me so I’ll likely always belt or get it tailored in the waist so it sits higher.

Chicwish also sells on Amazon too! I’ve been on an Amazon spend lately – I even got my bridesmaid dress for my sister’s wedding on there. What do you think of buying clothes from Amazon?

Cherry Blossoms & Modcloth Dress

2019 Fashion, Fashion, Favorite Features, Spring

Feeling proper in Modcloth Double the Love Dress.

Something about the off-the-shoulder can turn a simple dress into an elegant one. I’ve been really gravitating to unique necklines –– one shoulder, asymmetrical or other untraditional necklines.

I’ve paired with these Express heels, that were last worn here.

Splash of Green

2019 Fashion, Fashion, Favorite Features, Winter

I start to preemptively wear green as it gets close to St. Patrick’s Day. Is that just me? These Forever 21 tassel earrings are great to accessorize any outfit and avoid getting pinch on the day.

This Mango sweater has been a favorite of mine, it’s perfect for a casual day to run errands in. It fits loose, so good if you are planning to eat a large meal. You guessed it… I wore this to brunch!

Jill Stuart Beauty & J. Crew Blazer

2019 Fashion, Fashion, Favorite Features, Spring

I hope that the temperatures start warming up in D.C. since daylight savings time has now happened and my body and mind has officially switched gears to Spring.

I’ve started by bringing more warm tones into my makeup, starting with Jill Stuart Beauty‘s cherry blossom line of blush, lip blossom and jelly eye color.

I love how light the makeup appears and feels when applying on. Since the trees are not be blooming yet, I’ve brought my own splash of color and cheer with this red J. Crew blazer that has quickly become a staple of my office work looks.

It’s one of their classic blazers and is still in stock – so grab it now and thank me later!

I’ve paired it with my vegan leather trousers and a fun peplum belt to add interest. I’ve been finding myself belting almost everything these days. The “boyfriend fit” trend is still popular, but if you are petite, definitely belt the looks so they don’t overwhelm your frame.
