TGIF!! Nothing beats running errands in boy jeans and a slouchy tee – my uniform of choice as of late. My roommate and I stumbled upon the yarn art pictured above on a walk to Georgetown recently. The Artisphere Yarn Bomb exhibit, of sorts, will be in Arlington through the remainder of the summer. The yarn art is dispersed throughout Rosslyn around trees, on sculptures, etc. I love the pop of color it adds to the city!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Thanks Rosa for the pics!
Vests have been my saving grace as of late since the weather is not warm enough to go without a jacket and too warm to wear a trench.
Happy Wednesday and 1st of May!
“Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.”
Floral print rolls around every spring season. Although predictable, the trend has been able to stick around because of its versatility. Sam of La Petite Pear and I have teamed up to showcase the trend worn two different ways. Check out how we individually styled floral print. You can check out her post here. Love the mint floral print! My two favorite trends in one blouse.

Go Bare with bareMinerals.
On Wednesday, bareMinerals officially launched their Go Bare Tour right here in Washington, DC with Georgetown Cupcake! The tour will be traveling all over the United States visiting DC, NY, Chicago, Vegas, LA, and ending in bareMinerals’ home-base San Francisco. The goal of the tour is to help women “go bare” by advising them through foundation fittings.
They setup shop outdoors in the PNC parking lot and the weather was perfect for the event! I munched on some mini Georgetown Cupcakes and got a complimentary “make-under,” which included a foundation fitting and mini make-up tutorial. I always welcome with open arms whatever help I can get in that department.
The bareMinerals make-under station setup.
Why hello to you to!
The cutest and most yummy mini Georgetown Cupcakes.
I’ve always been such a fan of bareMinerals. Their foundation tutorial is what helped me learn how to actually apply make-up. Their makeup is lightweight but has great coverage! The tour will be in the area until May 12th, so make sure you check it out.
Happy Wednesday! I’m over on Sam’s blog today, La Petite Pear, for her weekly feature – Fashionista in Flats. Here’s a sneak peek of the outfit! I absolutely love heels, but flats are the only way to go when I commute via train everywhere. Check out the post here.
Thanks Sam for the feature!

If you follow me on instagram (yes I’m back!), you already know I stumbled upon my hometown’s carnival the other day! I spent the weekend at home, catching up with my parents and just taking time to relax. The perfect end to the weekend was checking out the carnival for a bit! Even though I didn’t have time to roam around as much as I wanted to (my adult conscience kicked in after a few minutes), it was fun to feel like a kid again. If only I got my hands on a funnel cake!
What are your favorite spring/summer memories from childhood?

So remember that Throwback Thursday post about 80s fashion last week? I was a bit inspired and picked up this suit vest with a touch of shoulder pads at Zara.
P.S. For all of you Washingtonians, be on alert that the Nordstrom Rack in downtown DC is opening tomorrow! I was invited to attend the early opening last night and picked up a pair of awesome oxfords I’ll be featuring on the blog soon.
