I Woke Up Like This

Photo Mar 17, 5 00 15 PMWe recently completely transformed my room and had a blast doing it! Of course, a trendy gallery wall was at the top of my list for what I wanted to include in my room. It was a big project, but thankfully I got a ton of inspiration from Pinterest which was a huge help. The wall describes me and my personality extremely well, with some of my favorite personal photos, canvas prints, and cute quotes. It’s a mixture of everything I love, especially London with the script on the right and the snow globe with Big Ben and the London Eye below it. Photo Mar 13, 10 33 17 AMFun fact about me: I love inspirational quotes like this one! Photo Mar 17, 5 00 31 PMI fell in love with these black and white striped lampshades when I saw them in the store. I love how unique they are and the statement that they make! Photo Mar 13, 10 36 29 AMI had so much fun searching for the perfect books for my nightstand. I especially love the 100 Years of Fashion book, I can spend hours looking through it and find something new every time. Photo Mar 13, 10 36 01 AMI was so excited when I found this dish for my nightstand. It’s perfect for the space and super adorable and functional. Photo Mar 17, 4 51 51 PMSurprisingly, finding the perfect bedding took the longest. I was very specific with what I wanted and I am so happy that I didn’t compromise on it. The classic clean look of the white with the gold trim gives an elegant look. The patterned blanket at the bottom of the bed ties it together well and finishes off the fun yet classic look. Photo Mar 17, 4 53 34 PMThe pillow was made custom and I was so happy with how it turned out. The pink of the pillow pulls perfectly together the colors from the gallery wall and the books.Photo Mar 17, 5 04 27 PMI was so thrilled when I found these bedside tables I had been searching for forever. The pattern was perfect and they were just the right size for the room. The sheer polka dot patterned curtains were so adorable I knew I needed them. They bring a childlike element to the room which I love. Photo Mar 13, 10 35 46 AMSomething you may not know about me: I love fake flowers. These pink peonies were perfect for the space and so pretty. The table with the picture frame, ampersand sign, and flowers is a funky shape that ended up fitting perfectly in the space. Photo Mar 13, 10 30 30 AMAs I said before, I am all about inspirational cute quotes. This one is one of my favorites and something that I live by. It’s perfect to wake up to in the morning, plus the stripes are super cute! Photo Mar 17, 4 51 14 PMI hope you enjoyed touring my city chic room!

Blue Jeans X White Shirt

Photo Mar 10, 1 44 22 PMPairing a white blouse with a classic pair of blue jeans is one of my favorite casual chic looks. It’s so versatile – you can wear it to work with booties or for a night out with heels. It’s usually my go-to when I am in a rush but still want to wear something super cute. As far as jewelry goes, whether it’s a big chunky statement necklace, or a dainty layered necklace, practically any jewelry works with this look. Photo Mar 10, 1 44 06 PMPhoto Mar 10, 1 44 03 PM (1)I am loving this tassel earring trend. The ones I am wearing are from Stella & Dot and I am so obsessed with them. Photo Mar 10, 1 44 12 PMI am also such a fan of the layered necklace trend – this one has a choker attached to it which is awesome. It’s also Stella & Dot… Can you sense a trend? #ilovestelladotPhoto Mar 10, 1 43 54 PMPhoto Mar 10, 1 44 26 PM

Cherry Blossom Birthday

Photo Mar 19, 8 35 07 PMIt’s springtime and that means two of my favorite things – Cherry Blossom season has officially sprung in Washington, DC and my birthday is finally here! Photo Mar 19, 12 42 11 PMPhoto Mar 19, 12 43 59 PMThere is usually a sea of white and pink on the trees by the Tidal Basin but this year nearly half of the buds are gone as a result of the snow storm last week. However, I was still determined to see the trees even if the most of them were no longer in bloom. I was pleasantly surprised when I got there to see more than I was expecting! Photo Mar 19, 12 48 46 PMPhoto Mar 19, 12 50 50 PMA little history lesson about the Cherry Blossoms… They were a gift from the Mayor of Tokyo, Yukio Ozaki to the city of Washington, DC in 1912. The first National Cherry Blossom Festival began in 1927. This year marks the 90th year of the festival that commemorates the gift of 3,000 Cherry Blossom trees and the lasting friendship and close relationship between the United States and Japan.

Mad About You, Moto Jacket

Photo Feb 21-2If you haven’t already noticed, I am so into moto jackets these days. They’re perfect for this time of year when the weather’s still chilly but you look silly wearing a winter coat. Moto jackets are also a timeless staple and incredibly versatile. I love rocking them with tees and jeans for a casual look during the day and pairing it with a dressier top at night. Plus they look killer with your favorite pair of Stella & Dot hoops. Scroll for outfit details and similar moto jackets…
