Last week was DC Fashion Week and I was super excited to attend a few of the events held.  This was what I wore on Thursday to the networking event held at Dirty Bar.  I met a ton of great people from a bunch of different company's and also made a new blogger friend, Charlotte from Winston & Willow!  All in all, it was a great night and I have to thank my sweet boyfriend for coming along with me so I wouldn't have to venture into my first networking party not knowing a soul.

I knew I would be going straight from work to the event, so I had to pick an outfit thought I thought would fit the 2.  I recently purchased this plaid button down from the j.crew factory store (I have 2 other versions of this button down and almost never take them off) and was in love with the girly-er plaid pattern and color scheme.  I wanted to wear it a different way than just with jeans and immediately thought of this H&M dress I've had sitting in my closet with the tags on it for over a year.  

I really think this outfit could just sum up my style : classic but with an unexpected twist.

On Thursday I'll post my outfit and recap of the International Couture Show at the French Embassy!
