Winter Hair

As my hair has been growing out I have began to notice that in the winter – the season of turtle necks, layers and chunky scarfs – my hair has been so frustrating I want to chop it all off getting in the way. I have become more and more desperate for some chic, easy up-dos that can keep my hair up and away while piling on the layers this winter. After some some virtual digging I have found some fabulous how-tos out there! Below are my top three I will be giving a shot asap!

Click on the image above for details of each step.

How to do above: Braid hair like putting it in pigtails, tie the braids in a knot, and pin back whatever you don’t want flipping out.

Mad for Plaid

 

 

Top & Coat {H&M} | Pants {Meeps Vintage} | Flower Pin {c/o Kate Spade} | Gloves {Lands End} love these | Pumps {Steve Madden} similar | Bag {vintage Coach} | Monogram Necklace {Max & Chloe} | Chain/Gem Necklace {Bauble Bar} | Watch {Michael Kors} |  Sunnies {Karen Walker} | Bracelet {Yurman} | Cuff {F21} similar | Bangles {c/o BCF} | Lipstick {NARS – Heat Wave}

To head to SpicyCandyDC‘s two year anniversary brunch I knew I needed to pull out all the vintage stops because these ladies know their vintage. These plaid pants were the perfect choice – they are comfortable (perfect to stuff my face without concern), warm (which was definitely needed on this chilly DC day) and the perfect chic piece to brunch with some of my favorite fashion blogger ladies.

Congratulations on two wonderful blogging years, Katya & Carlis. Here is to many, many more…

Life of the (Arm) Party

I have been wearing arm parties since I was little. There was never a day I didn’t have a watch on, some sort of new bangle I found at Claires (yeah I said it… Claires) and some friendship bracelet I made on the bus ride to dance competitions.

Lately, I have been wearing the same ‘ole arm party. The pictures above are plenty of evidence that I wear the same arm candy almost every single day and typically in the exact same places! You won’t catch me a day without my Michael Kors gold watch, David Yurman bracelet and Forever21 spiked cuff (similar).

Perhaps it is time to add to this arm party… I have been eyeing this, this and this lately.

What do you wear to your arm party and what do you think my arm party is missing?

Insta-Life

Just a quick glance at what my life has been like lately – many fantastic shopping finds, working on my new year resolutions and of course there is always my love Lucy (my pug).

For those of you who are not hip to the iPhone lingo, Instagram is an amazing app that helps you take creative pictures and post them to your social networks. Don’t have an iPhone? Don’t be sad, you can follow me (and subscribe to my Instagram pics) here!

PS. I am thrilled to be over on the New York Times Street Style site here! Thank you to one of my lovely readers for pointing it out to me. :)

Bubble Gum Pink

Top, Pants & Coat {H&M} | Pumps {Steve Madden} | Bag {vintage Coach} | Monogram Necklace {Max & Chloe} | Chain/Gem Necklace {Bauble Bar} | Watch {Michael Kors} |  Sunnies {Karen Walker} | Bracelet {Yurman} | Cuff {F21} similar | Ring {Lou Lou Boutique}|  Lipstick {NARS – Carthage} | Manicure {OPI – Lincoln Park After Dark}

I am absolutely, madly in love with these bubble gum pink pants. In fact, this entire look just felt so me – it is bright, has a bit of pattern mixing and of course a bit of vintage. Also, can you believe my new vintage Coach I snagged at Eastern Market this weekend?! It looks just like the Willis I was falling for!

I love these pink pants so much I also got them in my other favorite color, red! I think I may need to add colored denim to my ‘I May Have an Addiction List’  – which right now contains printed pants, brights and anything leopard. I’ve been told the first step is admitting you have a problem.

Fuzzy

Sweater {F21} | Leather Shorts {H&M} similar | Tights {Hue} | Booties {F21} | Fur Snood {c/o Ann Taylor} | Bag {Zara} | Sunnies {House of Harlow 1960} | Monogram Necklace {Max & Chloe} | Watch {Michael Kors} | Bracelet {Yurman} | Cuff {F21} similar | Ring {H&M} similar | Lipstick {Maybelline – Perfectly Plum} | Manicure {OPI – Lincoln Park After Dark}

Sometimes you want to keep it simple with an all black base, but I could not help but add this fuzzy fur snood gifted to me by Ann Taylor. Winter has clearly arrived here in DC and this fuzzy friend of mine will be in a heavy rotation durring the chillier DC days.

On another note, I am so thrilled and honored to be included in Refinery29’s ‘8 Reasons We Love DC in 2012’! I am truly feeling the love today.
