A Royal Dream In McQueen

Absolutely breathtaking.  Kate Middleton looked stunning in her dress fit for a fairytale wedding.  The dress, designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, with its lace, deep v, and long sleeves, will inevitably shape the future of wedding fashion.  Look for more royal wedding trend recaps to come!

Spring brings to mind beautiful tulips, barbecues with friends, and positive energy that were all missing over the winter.  However, spring weather is never a sure thing and unfortunately we don’t always get the best of it.  The past week has been touched by so many rainstorms that my excitement for spring began to wane.  Luckily last weekend’s forecast of more storms was entirely inaccurate and I got to enjoy many study breaks outside in the sunny warm weather.  In an effort to prepare myself for the rainy days that are still ahead, I styled a completely waterproof outfit with fun pops of color for a nice spring feel.  Stay dry!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Last Friday for my boyfriend’s birthday, I treated him to homemade red velvet cupcakes, as neither of us are crazy about typical birthday cakes.  Even though they’re baked the same way, there’s something about having a personal-sized miniature cake in adorable little wrappers that tricks my taste buds into thinking that cupcakes are so superior in taste to cake.  I tried out this amazing and simple recipe, and did I mention that the cupcakes are topped with homemade cinnamon cream cheese icing.  It was the most genius union of sweetness and decadence, making it the perfect birthday treat!

Outfit Inspiration: Peacock Chic

Photo Compliments of
One of the most beautiful animals on Earth has to be the peacock.  Their vibrant blues, electric teals, and earthy greens and browns combine to form the most gorgeous color scheme that nature could create.  With nude hues taking over this season, accessorizing with a pop of these peacock-inspired colors will add instant glam to any outfit.  My peacock feather earrings (similar to these) are my go-to accessory when I need to add color to a simple black or taupe dress.  The above eye-popping photos inspired me to style an outfit that showcases the variety of stunning rich colors in peacock feathers without being too literal.  Hope you like!

Suit Up

Photo Compliments of Anthropologie's Summer Ad
D.C. weather is nothing to brag about, but with highs in the 80s, a cool breeze, and sunny skies, today was perfection.  The weather served as a friendly reminder that summer is just around the corner.  And with a new season comes some closet alterations.  At the top of this week’s agenda is switching out my heavy sweaters for light, flirty, and colorful warm-weather clothes.  I can’t wait to pull out my swimsuits in preparation for days by the pool and a few vacations to the beach.  Even though I prefer two piece suits for optimal tanning, this season’s fresh new takes on one piece suits has me absolutely smitten.  In fact, this J.Crew one piece practically had to be pried out of my hands in the interest of saving money.  Here are just some of the suits I’m dying to add to my swimsuit collection this summer.  

1.       Diane Von Furstenberg, $220
2.      Anthropologie, $178
3.      J. Crew, $115
4.      Anthropologie, $146
5.      Victoria’s Secret, $66
6.      Anthropologie, $236
