D.C. Weekends: Arlington National Cemetery

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Happy hump-day! 
I wanted to start a new series on the blog called DC Weekends. There is so much to do in DC and it's surrounding areas (Virginia and Maryland) and I wanted to share it here on the blog. This past weekend hubby and I went to visit the Arlington National Cemetery. It's the final resting place of more than 14,000 veterans including those who fought in the Civil War. It's 624 acres, so make sure you bring your walking shoes because my legs still hurt from all the walking we did in there. There's no admission to get in unless you decided to do a tour. The benefit of doing the tour, you get driven around in a trolley. If you're not a big walker I would suggest doing the tour.

Have you ever had an old item in your kloset you just didn't know why you still had it but couldn't part ways with it? Well, that's the case for this maxi dress and me. I've had this maxi dress for a very long time and knew I should of parted ways with it a long time ago. I haven't worn it in a while but I love the mustard color so much, I just didn't want to part ways with it. I got a little creative with it and gave it a little twist. Get creative and find different ways to reuse old pieces so you can get more out of your wardrobe.

Because Leopard Makes Everything Better

I'm currently having some summer anxiety because I know fall is literally right around the corner! Ahhh. Am I the only one feeling like this? I'm currently holding on to as much summer that's left. I started to feel this way this week as the temperatures in DC haven't felt so harshly humid plus the kids start school early over here so it really gave me that summer time sadness. Cue some Lana Del Rey.

Who Wear Shorts Shorts?

Friday, August 19, 2016

The temperatures are rising here in DC so wearing minimal clothes is becoming a necessity for me. These high-waisted shorts are my favorite for the summer. They have been going strong for about four summers now and I don't plan on parting ways with them no time soon. An interesting fact about me when I was in High School, I had a huge complex about my legs and wouldn't wear shorts not even if my life depended on it. I eventually got over it and learned to love all parts of my body and I'm glad I did. 

Signs You Might Be A City Girl

summer, countryside, city girl, dress, summer dress

A couple of weekends ago I attended a friends wedding in southern Virginia for the weekend. It was about a three-hour drive from my house and my hubby and some friends rented a cabin. I must say this city girl really had her taste of the countryside that weekend! It was definitely an experience for me driving through dirt roads, having cows and horse in our yard, no lights on the streets and being so high up on the mountains. I think that might have been the moment I realized how much of a city girl I am. We had a little bit of downtime between all the wedding activities for the weekend and decided to do a shoot and embrace the nature around me.
