When it’s hot in the summer, I love a good maxi dress. This floral watercolor maxi dress keeps the sun off my body, which keeps me cool. The colors in this watercolor maxi dress are so romantic and perfect for summer. I almost feel a few degrees cooler just looking at these soothing colors. If you are petite, you’ll love this dress because it’s the perfect length. Absolutely no hem job needed and I’m 5’3. On taller girls, this will be midi length most likely. This watercolor dress has lots of fabric that gathers. You can wear it with the sash or let it flow like I am here. Personally, I like this option better since it moves in the wind and when you walk. However, if you want more shape, feel free to use the sash.
I have had many moments in my life where I feel like a princess and this was one of them, thanks to Johnny. During our trip to D.C., we woke up super early to go Monument hunting. This way we avoid any big crowds and can get these awesome photos, ha! The Thomas Jefferson Memorial is a must-see monument. The majestic and grandeur feel of the tall columns really make you feel like you’re almost in a castle. Plus, there is a beautiful view overlooking the Tidal Basin and you can spot the Washington Monument. I simply cannot believe this pink pleated maxi skirt is only $30! What a steal!
Happy Monday everyone! As many of you may know, I wear dresses 90 percent of the time at work. They are easy, low maintenance and I don’t have to worry about mixing and matching tops and bottoms. I usually wear solids, but this floral work dress from Of Mercer is a stunner. The reason I think this dress is particularly TV friendly is the print isn’t too small. It’s not overly distracting or can “move” like thin stripes. When it comes to work dresses, I like conservative silhouettes with unique details. Since I rarely really know what story I’ll be reporting on, I prefer to air on the safe side in case I’m assigned something very serious. While this floral print is fresh, it isn’t overly bright or cheery, so it’s perfect for the office.
On Johnny’s most recent trip to visit me, we decided to spend a weekend in Washington, D.C. I needed to work on most weekends while he was here, but luckily the only one I wasn’t working on turned out to be the Fourth of July weekend. At first, all we could think of was how many tourists would be there during America’s birthday. However, both being the children of immigrants, we couldn’t think of a better time or place to go. Here are our favorites and highlights of our trip.
‘Merica baby! Happy Fourth of July y’all! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw I spent my Fourth of July weekend in Washington D.C., which was a blast. I’ll do a full travel guide post soon, but until then I am sharing my favorite Fourth of July style. If this tank looks familiar, it’s because I blogged it two years ago. My friend Olivia accidentally left it it in my bag when we were roommates at Miss USA. I blogged it, but sadly had to return it to her. This year, it’s back and I now have one of my own. It is perfect for pairing with jeans or distressed shorts. I love this All-American Girl tank because it’s easy to style with jeans or shorts. Plus, you can also throw it over a swimsuit as a cover-up.
