The Prettiest Ruffled Romper

The prettiest ruffled romper

This outfit is a bit outside my comfort zone, and I love it! The romper’s giant sunflowers, the bright colors, the ruffled bottom - I felt like I was walking on sunshine all day and couldn’t stop smiling. Which is my favorite kind of outfit - the one that is an instant mood booster and makes you feel like “a million bucks.”

The romper is high necked, rather short, and has shorts underneath! Isn’t that clever? You can’t tell that they are there when looking, but you can walk up stairs or bend over without worrying about it. Plus the ruffles make you feel like you are dancing when you are just walking down the street. So fun!

The romper fits true to size, and has a loose and comfortable fit.

I paired it with my classic Jack Rogers (it’s sandals season!) and the Lisi Lerch Cameran earrings for some extra glamour. And my favorite purse right now, the Kate Spade Rose Convertible basket bag. You’ll see me wearing it all springing summer, it’s just so cute!

Springtime Blooms

spring flowers in Washington DC

This spring I am very excited to wear lots of pink so that I match all of the flowers that are blooming throughout the city. Since pink is my favorite color to wear anyway, I don’t anticipate it being much of a struggle, lol!, but I’ve still been excited to add a few new pink pieces to my wardrobe. One of the first is this darling ruffle neck dress. Doesn’t it match the spring bouquet perfectly? And, as a side note, I may need to decorate my whole home with cherry blossoms, they are just so pretty.

I love the way the ruffles add a pseudo collar to the dress. It frames the face so nicely and adds a little more interest to the simple pinstripes. The dress is called the Tisbury Shift and it is so comfortable. It’s made out of a soft stretchy cotton, so you feel like you are in form fitting pajamas the whole time you have it on. It fits true to size, and isn’t too short. Also, as a side note - it’s one of those dresses that looks better on a person than on the hanger, so if you see it in store be sure to try it on before you pass on it : )

Before I left home for the day I put on my spring jacket (I’ll be featuring this coat soon, I absolutely love it!) and the new D.C. Murphy scarf. It has a number of the big D.C. landmarks on it, like the Lincoln Memorial and the Smithsonian, as well as cherry blossoms. Isn’t the color scape pretty?

The Perfect White Jacket

Did everyone have a good weekend? We went out for St. Patrick’s Day yesterday, corned beef and cabbage at Marvin’s Tavern. It’s a cute restaurant that Jackie and JFK used to go, and it serves some delicious traditional Irish food at reasonable prices (well, reasonable for Georgetown). Also, all of the trees and flowers are getting ready to bloom, so it was so nice to walk around this weekend in the spring sunshine and crisp night air. Since the sunshine was out I was able to pull out a sundress and my favorite spring purchases - a white jean jacket and basket bag.

It’s still a bit chilly in a lot of the country (or air conditioning can be chilly in warmer places like Florida) but it feel like time to bring out spring dresses and pastel florals. This white denim jacket is the answer! It has been the perfect addition to spring dresses - it adds a layer of warmth, the white is a great accent color that matches spring colors beautifully, and it also adds a layer of interest. I love that the sleeves on this one easily roll up, and the gold grommets are a nice feminine touch. It is also stiff enough that the color stays popped and the sleeves stay rolled, but it is soft enough to be comfortable.

Finally, this is my new favorite handbag (quite possibly one of my favorite bags ever!). I love everything about the Kate Spade re-brand, it’s so fun and classic and retro. My favorite piece in the new collection is this Kate Spade rose small convertible crossbody. I think it looks exactly like something Midge Maisel would have used in the Catskills. The interior has a card case so you don’t need a wallet, and fits all of your essentials, and the strap adjusts to either a crossbody style or a shoulder bag. Be prepared to see this bag a lot on the blog, I’ll be wearing it all spring and summer long!
