Layering doesn't normally come to mind during summer weather but this year the weather in Northern Virginia being a bit unpredictable. With 70's one day and then 95+ the next,
you really never know what you're going get.
On another note, breaking out my denim vest has my counting down the days until slightly cooler (and less humid!) weather.

This is my most worn event outfit this summer.  A bridal shower, a date night, drinks with friends, I legit have worn it everywhere.

The pleats of the skirt are feminine, the length of the skirt hits right above the knee which makes it perfect for my 5'4" frame, and where the waist hits makes it pretty modest for skin exposure with a crop top.
I love adding these multi-colored stacked heeled sandals for something a little different but they still go with my neutral color palette.

What are your summer go-to outfits?

I wore this outfit while strolling through a nearby pond while one of my good friends was in town.  
The great thing about my apartment location is that there are a few walking trails right at my doorstep. 
Whenever Dot or I are getting restless, we just need to take a step outside for some exercise and enjoy some great views.

tuesday shoesday: must have summer shoes.

By now, you may have realized that I love shoes. 
This time of year is the perfect time to start thinking about growing your summer shoe collection because everything is starting to get marked down!


Check out the shoes below you need in your closet :


 flats | post here & here|

Whether you opt for flip flops of flat sandals, you should have a nicer pair of summer  sandals somewhere in your closet.
This nicer option will get you through those lazy weekday mornings where you don't feel like wearing your heels or those last backdoor BBQ's with 95 degree weather.
I suggest going for a higher quality classic styled shoe so they will last a few seasons and won't show too much wear.
And just because I say higher quality doesn't mean I mean higher price...

more flats:


heeled sandals (stacked heel) | post here & here |
Perfect for your casual days and nights during the summer heat.
I love a fun print to add a fun detail  to sometimes shoes that tend to get a little too safe.

more heeled sandals(stacked heel)


 heeled sandal (stiletto heel) | post here |

Girls nights, weddings, date nights, clubbing any nicer event these should be your go to shoes.
You should start with a black or nude in a heel height that you are comfortable running a marathon in.
Just with either of these colors you are set, but then that is when you can add fun colors and styles into the mix (example: heels above)

more heeled sandal (stiletto):


wedges | post here & here |

I am not much of a wedge person, just because I have not found many styles that I truly love 100%, but they are a more comfortable option than a heel. 
Casual or dressy, wedges can be dressed up or down and give you the extra height & comfort while maneuvering through backyards this summer.

I wore this last Saturday (during the day) strolling around Leesburg with my old college roommate Tara.
The perfect time to wear an eyelet top is in the summer where is you can get away with a cute lacey bralette. 
I am pleasantly surprised that this one isn't as revealing as I had previously had assumed.
Are you all wearing eyelet for summer?

So sorry for the absence guys, I promise I am back on the blog wagon!

This outfit is what I wore to the RSMasterClass a few weeks ago in DC.
I got the chance to meet a few new ladies and learn some new blogging tips and tricks.
The summer here in DC has been a little crazy and cooler than usual which made this faux leather skirt totally summer appropriate.
What I am loving about this outfit:

1. The heels that add a fun neutral pop.  The stacked heel makes them super comfortable but still more fun than a normal solid brown heels/wedge.
2.  This shell top.  I eyed it for awhile at Loft and when they had it marked down to 50% off a few weeks ago, I had to snag it.  
3.  My sunglasses.  I picked these up while in Las Vegas last weekend at Urban Outfitters and am so glad I did.  I have been eyeing the RayBan "Clubmaster" but haven't been able to pull the trigger since they are $160.  These lovelies are under $20 and are great alternate.
