    Aloha! I wanted to introduce a series of Maui-themed posts with this super tropical outfit that I wore out to dinner in Ka’anapali Beach. Sadly, we are now in Alexandria, Va., and not in Hawaii, but I’m excited to relive our vacation! These photos were taken the night of our first full day in Maui. […]

  • Pink on the pier

    pink on the pier

    Sometimes, when your hair is Barbie blonde, you need to just put on some Barbie pink and go with it. I got this blush and gold headband thingy from ban.do not too long ago and immediately became obsessed with it. I also have been using the Lilly Pulitzer for Target bag I scored (by stalking […]

  • Giraffes and flamingos

    giraffes and flamingos

    We found out a few weeks ago that after only two years in Carlsbad, we’re moving back to DC. Sad trombone. We’ve been trying to hit all our favorite spots before we go, so I made Toby go to the zoo with me again… and, when we were in Virginia looking for a place to live, […]

  • Babydoll


    Last weekend I took an epic trip to Las Vegas with some of my college friends to see Britney Spears… and that meant I had to go on a bit of a shopping spree, since I didn’t have anything very Vegas-y laying around. And while I was buying up all the sparkle in the San […]

  • Queen’s guard

    I am a total Anglophile, and I love Boden. So when I saw this sweater printed with tiny Queen’s Guard soldiers, I knew I had to have it. I was excited to be able to wear it at Thanksgiving and Christmas — when we went to places that are legitimately cold — but it’s the […]

  • Ripped jeans and pixie dust

    fairy good life

    You’ve probably noticed that I put my outfits together based on the event, occasion or location at which I’ll be wearing them. I think I’ve always been like that, actually: I remember going to a Phoenix Suns game when I was in middle school and wondering what the heck the woman sitting courtside in YELLOW […]

  • Librarian chic

    I apologize for my absence lately; I’ve been working on some recipes and trying to get some new fashion posts ready to go, but I’ve gotten bogged down and haven’t had much time to post. However, since I actually ventured out of the house a few days this week, I snapped some photos using my […]

  • What I wore in Afghanistan

    I didn’t really take any “outfit photos” in Afghanistan, because, well… that would have been kinda weird. I also didn’t bring any actual cute outfits. But, because this is at least partially a fashion blog, I thought I should show you at least a little of what I wore. I got some not-too-tight jeans at […]

  • Date night LBD

    I have this problem right now where I feel like all my clothes are either really casual or dressy. I don’t really have a lot of in-between. But I wanted to wear something other than jeans or a bathing suit coverup for dinner on Saturday with Toby, so I thought this dress that I picked […]

  • One skirt, 12 ways

    Packing for a long trip is a challenge. You don’t want your bag to weigh 100 pounds, but if you’re like me, you also don’t want to have to wear the same outfit three times in a week. That’s where the wardrobe workhorses come in: dark jeans, nude heels, leopard flats, a navy blazer. But […]
