A Spring Day in Annapolis
This past weekend, my mom, sister and I spent the day in Annapolis, Maryland. We had so much fun walking around town, shopping, lunching and laughing. Aubrey loved looking at the boats and the ducks and we all enjoyed people watching and the live music. There are some awesome restaurants there; one of our favorites is Harvest Wood + Grill Tap. They have amazing fried oysters and a fun bar-like casual atmosphere right on the water. We also stopped by our favorite boutiques, 3 Sisters, The Lucky Knot and Kokopelli (among others!). A perfect day trip from D.C. or Baltimore!

Blue Striped Cold Shoulder
This top is the epitome of spring fashion — blue stripes, cold shoulder sleeves and ruffles! I got it at a store I discovered in Boston recently called Primark (think H&M meets Ikea) for under $20! They have everything from clothing to shoes, home goods, baby clothes, luggage, makeup and more. The prices were unbelievable, so you can get a bunch of trendy pieces that you’ll only wear for the season and not feel guilty about spending the money (I went a little nuts there, so you’ll see a ton in future blog posts!). Pair with classic accessories and the options are endless…unfortunately, you can’t shop with them online yet, but I have a feeling they’ll popping up in many cities soon!

Cozy Irish Knit Sweater and Leggings for Storm Prep
Usually St. Patrick’s Day marks the start of spring in the District, but today we’re bracing for a snow storm before our favorite green holiday. Keeping in the spirit of things, I brought my winter clothes back out (sigh – we were so close!) and opted to hunker down in this cozy Irish knit and these warm Jack Rogers duck boots. Can’t go wrong with leggings and an oversized cardigan while waiting out the storm!

White Ruffle Zara Top and Needlepoint Gator Belt
Happy Monday! Today we’re featuring our alligator needlepoint belt, a great spring accessory, in navy and pink. I matched this belt with a ruffle peplum top from Zara, my favorite comfy jeans and Canfora sandals. Canfora Capri sandals are the bejeweled hand-made frocks Jackie O used to wear on her summer European excursions with Aristotle Onassis. The shiny rhinestones make such an elegant statement and these silver pair match everything! The brand is celebrating 70 years of rich Italian history and classic style. Each shoe is carefully crafted upon order, so make sure you budget in five days for creation.
