Stars and Stripes Style for the 4th

Stars and Stripes Style

The 4th of July is such a fun holiday to get dressed for. I love showing just how much I love the good ol' USA by unabashedly wearing my starts and stripes style.

Truth be told, the area is pretty patriotic year round, and living near the Naval Academy brings out so much appreciation and love for those who sacrifice for our country than I ever realized. Seeing the women and men around town in their whites hits me in the heart each time. It...

Gladiator Wedges for Summer

Black Tahari Dress and Gladiator wedges for summer

With warm weather finally officially here to stay (yes imagine me doing a happy dance around the pool waiting for it to get warm enough to jump in), it's time to update some of my summer sandals.

Metallic Sandals Must Haves

Gold Sandals Featured

You've probably noticed that this girl kind of has an affinity for metallic sandals. Take my go-to metallic gladiator sandals for instance.

It's why I tend to turn to them season after season. That being said, it's probably time to add some more metallic sandals to my shoe family and, while I'll probably stick with another gold pair, because gold just goes...

How to Wear Gingham

Kristin Smiling

Last year I pretty much went all in with the off the shoulder trend and it's carried on to this season as well. I can't seem to get enough of that look and, in fact, just the other day I picked up some more off the shoulder pieces to rock this spring and summer. The off the shoulder dress I'll be sharing next month, but I couldn't wait to give you a peek at the darling off the shoulder gingham top that I snagged at Shopbop.
