With Labor Day weekend coming up, my deep denial that summer is almost over is getting harder and harder to maintain. But I’m trying to keep this charade going as long as possible so I thought I’d do a roundup of my favorite outfits from this summer to ease into autumn. I’ll be transitioning to fall and fall-ish outfits after LDW since DC’s heat + humidity doesn’t always get the memo that it’s officially fall right away.
It could be argued that with what has been called the “aggressive amount of pink” in my closet, I dress like Valentine’s Day on a regular basis. Pink’s my power color, what can I say? Next week I’m tackling Valentine’s Day eats and cocktails (spoiler alert: tequila’s involved) along with my Galentine’s Day outfits. But let’s get the party started early with some Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration for every budget to take you from desk to drinks and dinner. Or you know, comparing notes on recent dates/Hinge matches with your friends and
a couple multiple bottles of wine. ‘Cuz that’s where I’ll be.
Pass the candy, please!

Hell from the other side 😉 And if you’re lucky, it’s a SNOW DAY!!! I owe you one, Snowzilla/Jonas.
I spent the weekend alternating between curling up on my couch under a fuzzy blanket (with work) and exploring the neighborhood after the huuuggggeee snowfall on Saturday. It was a bit post-apocalyptic with everyone walking in the streets. Seriously, on Saturday the only car I saw driving was an Uber. All the kids were SO PUMPED to go sledding and others napped on sleds while their parents dragged them around the streets. Now that’s how you do a snow day.
Hands down, my favorite part of the snowstorm was watching the kids go sledding on the Capitol lawn (thanks, Omnibus!). And in true DC fashion, I did spot people using protest signs as impromptu sleds. Not in Western New York anymore…
I’m pretty sure my friends and I walked at least 5 miles yesterday. I swear, after this weekend’s jaunts I better have toned calves.
J. Crew Factory Navy Gingham Shirt // Cable Knit Sweater (similar) // L.L. Bean Quilted Riding Jacket // J. Crew Factory Pleated Skirt // L.L. Bean Camp Socks // L.L. Bean Boots // Coach Isabelle (similar) // Kendra Scott Taylor Gold Studs // Target Boyfriend Watch // Kate Spade Necklace // Ray-Ban Aviators
After living in crazy layers all weekend (think leggings and long sleeve tees under flannel), I’m ready to feel like a human again. But I’m easing into it with my favorite J.Crew Factory skirt, that elastic waistband is a lifesaver after a weekend sponsored by carbs, the softest gingham shirt and topped off with the coziest sweater ever. Add minimal jewelry and finish with extra-thick camp socks and Bean boots that’ll keep your feet warm ‘n happy!! Well, that was quite the run-on sentence but it’s a SNOW DAY! So all rules go right out the window, right?
Did you get a snow day today? How’d your spend your Snowzilla weekend?
