Red Pencil Skirt

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

Friday after work I met up with blogger and stylist Dionna of Made me Pretty and Body Conscious Beauty at Hank's in Capitol Hill for raw oysters and peel-n-eat shrimp... perfect snacks on a sweltering summer day in DC.

Afterwards we snapped photos of the outfits we'd worn to work that day. I love the statement this bright red pencil skirt makes. I'll confess I had to restrain myself because I wanted to pair this top with something white on the bottom. I would seriously wear white tip to toe the entire summer if I could, you instantly feel ten degrees cooler in an all white outfit. Sporting my white linen shift dress last week was like having my own personal a/c system. And anything that keeps me cool in this heat... well I'll take it!

Summer Scents with Jo Malone

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

Here's WHAT I WORE: tip to toe! to the birthday party of blogger Yvonne from Pink Dollhouse. Her fun event was held at Neiman Marcus in Mazza Gallerie. Yvonne is so much fun! You'll remember she hosted the awesome "glammy" Grammy party with CoverGirl last year. At her party I got to catch up with some of my favorite bloggers and meet a few new faces. I also got a makeover by makeup artist Glenda of Bobbi Brown and learned how to layer Jo Malone scents. What a fashionable way to spend a birthday right?

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

Makeup: 

(eyes) Stila smudge crayon in "Smoke"

(lips) Buxom full bodied lipstick in "Rogue"



I recently flew to California to celebrate the marriage of one of my best friends. The rustic chic wedding was held on campgrounds where we spent the weekend in tents and cabins; enjoying acoustic guitar jam sessions by the fire, roasting smores and wading in the river. Heck I even went for a hike! 

One of the best part of the whole weekend was that no one had cell phone reception. We couldn't text each other or post photos to Instagram. We just enjoyed the moment and each other's company. It was bliss! Scroll down for more glimpses of my best friend's wedding!
