potw: celebrate

short and sweet today: a few easter cards, a few passover cards.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

my husband and i have been invited to a friend's house for seder the past few years, and i have to say, i've really developed a taste (maybe even a craving?) for matzah with pickled horseradish. yum yum.

anyways, if you celebrate either of these two upcoming events, these cards might just be the perfect thing. 

now and later

embellished tee
for now: vest | ponte pants | earrings | boots
for later: ring | ring | shorts | sandals

embellished tee
for work: blazer | shoes | pencil skirt | purse

for weekend: pants | wallet | purse | shoes | hair ties

this shirt* is so versatile and comfortable. i just bought something similar from the crew. it's gonna be perfect for these next few weeks/months when the temps can be anywhere from the upper 30s to the high 60s (maybe even 70s?!)

here's hoping anyways.

*i made this collage about a week ago and never got around to posting it. the exact shirt is sold out, but i've linked to something really similar.


as dc winters go, we've had a lot of snow this year. but anyone who lived here in 2010 will definitely remember snowpocalypse/snowmageddon and the near-weeklong closures it brought with it.

i was living in dupont circle at the time, right on 17th and massachusetts.

after the snow finally stopped falling, the sun came out and since we were going stir crazy, we went for a walk to the mall and downtown to check out the aftermath.

this was dc in february 2010. under more than three feet of snow.

i've started to hear some rumors of more snow next tuesday. yikes.

happy spring?

two days

the vernal equinox is in two days. old man winter decided to have one last laugh yesterday, but they say warmer temps are on the horizon.

in terms of the weather, it was a strange weekend. temps in the 60s, upper 40s, 20s. the days that were warm, trust that we took full advantage and went on plenty of long walks in the sun. my new favorite thing to do after work.

i also had time to make my favorite no-knead bread recipe, which, if you haven't tried, you have to. it'll make you look like an expert baker (check out that golden brown crust!) and i promise you it's the easiest recipe you'll ever try.

love seeing these pop up 
credit for this awesome sketch goes to my coworker/friend, alina. what a talent!
someone got some free clothes
you've got to try this recipe
the view from our porch this morning. 

my work actually didn't have an official snow day but i decided to work from home anyways. i think they're sick of all the days off.

here's to spring. glorious, glorious spring.


what's worse?

everyone talking about they can't wait for fall? hashtag omg apple picking?

or the winter-weary masses who can't shut up about spring?

i've always found the fall lovers to be the more intense bunch. people are serious about their sweaters.

if you read this blog with any frequency, you know that i get more excited for spring. and since it's just around the corner, here's what i'll be focused on in the upcoming months.

jeans | shoes | dress | sunglasses | top | tote

and even though i said i can't get on board with going full on john lennon with my sunglasses yet, i like these semi-round ones.

i'm also still loving embellished clothes and i'm glad that trend is sticking around a bit longer. 


potw: spring forward

spring fever is in full effect over here.

one taste of a sunshine-filled 60-degree day and i'm going crazy for warmer temperatures.

i haven't done a press of the week since i got back from maternity leave, so to get it started up again, here's six cheery designs.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6
