You've probably seen a crossbody in photos on Instagram or on the blog. And they are my favorite casual, everyday bag. My favorites are from Kate Spade (a true style icon of mine). But, when commuting to the office every day or traveling for work, I need to be able to lug my laptop, charger, notebook, and a handful of other things with me. So, a crossbody just won't cut it.
I can't believe it, but the ME brand turns one on August 1st! The year completely flew by and to be honest, the anniversary snuck up on me. But, I have something exciting in the works as a belated celebration, so stay tuned for more details!
I'm back from an unintended blogging hiatus to share the floral sheath dress with you. It's currently available for pre-order (in both regular and tall sizes) and 15% off with code PREORDER15; you can shop it here. The dress is the same silhouette and shares the same fit as the sheath dress in textured stripe, with some minor updates based on customer feedback. And, yes, it has pockets!
I jump at any opportunity to include our dog, Sadie, on our weekend adventures. I absolutely love bringing her along on hikes or to our favorite brewery. Her excitement on a new trail just puts a smile on my face. Today, I'm sharing five things we love to do with our dog in DC (and highly recommend even if you don't have a dog).
I'm currently at the tail end of perfecting samples and have started production on the Summer collection. Because I offer such limited quantities of each style, the actual time it takes to manufacture the collection is relatively short (we will be releasing new pieces in early June).
My husband and I have a standing date every Friday night. We started the tradition when we got married and it is still going strong (almost) three years later! I'm lactose and gluten intolerant, so I am partial to restaurants that have allergen menus or are willing to modify dishes as needed. And for whatever reason, many of our favorite date night spots are tapas or small plates restaurants. So, I figured I'd share the top small plates restaurants in DC.
When I first started traveling for work I realized that packing for a business trip was more challenging, and of course less fun, than packing for vacation.
I always wait until the last minute to pack (even when it comes to vacations). Please tell me I'm not the only one! On my first multi-day business trip, I resorted to packing a capsule wardrobe based around one neutral color. I recommend using black or navy as your base color as doing so allows you to pack a single pair of dress shoes and tights (if needed), and makes it easier to mix and match fewer pieces to create more outfits. Although I resorted to this approach because I was crunched for time and thoroughly uninspired to pack, it's become my go-to method!
