Picturesque Cherry Blossoms in D.C. & a Mint Green Suit

In early April, more than 1.5 million tourists make their way to see the picturesque cherry blossoms in D.C. and take photos. The main goal is to witness what’s known as the peak bloom of about 3,000 cherry trees. It’s a spectacular sight and the National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the gift of friendship to the United States from the people of Japan. The Sakura truly transforms the area into a romantic, whimsical place. While my sister and I missed the peak bloom by a day or two, there are still stunning blooms all over our Nation’s Capitol. The time these exquisite flowers bloom changes every year, so there isn’t a set time. There are estimates but the weather is unpredictable and changes every minute. Check back soon for a more in-depth travel guide to seeing cherry blossoms in D.C.

The Striped Transition Sweater You Need for Fall

Labor Day is a week away, which means fall’s arrival is on the way! I absolutely love summer and I’m sad to see it go. However, there are some key pieces I love to rely on to transition into fall. This striped transition sweater is the perfect way to ease into fall. The color block stripes are a fun trend from summer. Plus, you can tuck this sweater into shorts for cooler summer nights. I can easily see myself throwing this over a swimsuit after watching a sunset at the beach. Or you can wear it when you’re in chilly restaurants or grocery stores when you’re running errands. I’m wearing a size US 2, which fits like a size 0-2. This sweater is meant to fit a little boxy and oversized. It’s also perfect for layering as I like to wear an extra cashmere layer underneath to stay extra warm when it’s cold.

Summer Style :: Polka Dot Two-Piece Set

Hello, Everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely Memorial Day Weekend. While you are all enjoying the sun, tasty food on the grill and time with loved ones, please remember the true reason for this holiday. Memorial Day is to remember all the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the armed forces. It’s to remember freedom isn’t free. We are able to enjoy time at the lake or the beach today because someone else made sacrifices for us. I love holidays where we can wear patriotic colors and be proud to be American. Finding Americana pieces are always super fun for me. You all may know I have some pieces of patriotic clothing I adore, including my All-American Girl tank.

Beach Vibes :: My Favorite Sandals for Summer

One of the best parts of living in Coastal Virginia is being so close to the beach. It truly makes me feel so grateful and inspires me each time I’m there. Summer is a time for adventure, exploring and trying new things. Today, I’m partnering with DSW to share my favorite sandals for summer and to talk to about where I hope they’ll take me. Before moving to Coastal Virginia, I didn’t really care for sandals, which is crazy to me! Between traveling, heading to the beach or just popping out of my apartment to pick up food, I prioritize comfort. That’s why these DSW sandals are my favorite sandals for summer. They’re so comfortable because unlike other sandals, they have a little bit of arch support. I appreciate how I can just slide them on and be ready to go. During summer, I want to soak up the beautiful weather, which means I don’t want to spend time putting on shoes before going outside!

My Summer Beach Beauty Essentials

Hello my beautiful friends! I hope your week is going well so far. Since we are kicking off beach weather in Coastal Virginia, I want to share my beach beauty essentials. These are items I love to bring to the beach to keep my skin healthy and at its best. It’s so important to take your skin’s health very seriously. Take a little time to get your skin ready for the sun and you can enjoy your time soaking up that vitamin sea! There is nothing worse than coming home from the beach with sunburned, peeling and dehydrated skin. It’s not a good look and will most certainly age you rapidly. We don’t want that! Of course, in conjunction with these beach beauty essentials, don’t forget to drink tons of water to stay hydrated from the inside out! Now, let’s get to the essentials!
