in my closet…

Old navy has some of the cutest options right now!! I have to say they are contributing to most of my fall wardrobe this year :) Above are my favorite picks – I’m running with the pleat trend and loving it! Other fall essentials: comfy, cozy knits, breezy blouses, leopard (anything), bow blouses, and of course Hokie colors – orange and maroon! You can find all of these on, and I’m sure in their stores as well.


healdsburg love….

After spending such a wonderful long weekend in Healdsburg (Sonoma County) California over the summer, it definitely created the notion that I MUST return to wine country sometime soon :) Banana Republic’s latest fall campaign was photographed in Healdsburg, the same little town we stayed in for Gina’s wedding! I had to share because that vacation holds such a special place in my heart, and I thought these photo’s did it justice :)


who knew?!

This is worth your time, I promise! Not only are the transitional movements from the girl adorable, but I learned so much!! I will now be rocking scarves 25 different ways this fall. Ready, GO! :) What are your favorites?! I like “the celebrity!”

just like chiara

Chiara is an italian cutie who always impresses me with her style – and seemingly unending budget for clothes & accessories! However, it also looks like she is great at mixing both high and low fashion. Check out these great pics of her from MBFW day #6! I fell in love with her scalloped shorts, and wanted to share where you can find your own pair! Oh – and don’t mind her hot boyfriend, Richie (so handsome).All images via The Blonde Salad



I would love this look for a night out!

Check out the scalloped shorts here (same as Chiara’s!)

The Penny Loafer

Remember the Penny Loafer from way back when? I definitely do! I loved it at the time, and I’m happy it’s made it’s reappearance in the fashion world. It’s a perfect pair to long, flared trouser jeans, or to put a special touch on a pencil skirt. Here are some of my current favorites!

rainy days

are synonymous with comfy. and comfy beds. and movies, blankets, and online shopping and blog reading. All of which I have already done this morning! <i love having fridays off work!> Although I think my bed is top notch comfy, these are right up my alley as well.

The “I can’t explain what color I really want” hair

I feel like overtime I go to the salon, I want that dreamy color which is a mix of brown and blonde highlights. However, I KNOW if I say that to my stylist, there are thousand different color ranges to choose from, and I need to be more specific. I’ve decided that showing pictures gets my point across much better! I am definitely into subtle ombre – with a little intentional root and sunkissed strands around the face. Can anyone find me a stylist in DC that can make this happen? I’d be eternally grateful.  See my inspirations below, and click the photo’s for the direct links to where I found these lovely images!

It’s okay to drool over the locks. They. Are. Stunning.
