{pink hydrangeas + mint green amazon romper}

There's just something about rompers that I can never get enough of...

I love just about every romper that I find - they make putting together an outfit so easy and foolproof! I was instantly smitten by this one because of the color. The sleeves were an added bonus and they have a cool stitching all along the big ruffles. It's not a true adjustable tie waist but that's okay because the elastic was nice and tight and I kept the bow on because I like the illusion that it is a drawstring. The color is so soft and subtle and the material feels like it's a linen blend - it definitely looks a lot more expensive than it is!! Plus, it has pockets!! After seeing it on the model again I almost wish I had gone up to a medium... I like the oversized look she has going. Amazon sizing can be really difficult so I highly recommend reading the reviews if you can. I always check them along with the size charts because the brands vary so greatly!

I've got a really busy week ahead filled with workouts, friends, dinners, and some fun events. Then I'm heading off to NYC for work and some fun with my college bestie! I always love the chance to go to the big apple - especially during the summer. Fingers crossed for some good weather!

Love Always,

{wisteria and gal meets glam}

Wisteria Hysteria was real in DC and getting to walk amongst these heavenly flowers was basically a dream of mine come true!

Over Easter I asked for y'all's vote between the two Gal Meets Glam dresses I own. My intent was to only keep one (they are investments) but I fell so so so hard that I had to keep both. This Courtney dress was from Julia's first collection - it sold out so quickly and I was heartbroken. Dramatic I know but I had an alarm set and got carsick trying to get it haha! I've been following Julia since college (fun fact we're the same age and both Delta Gamma's) and have always admired her work ethic, style, life, etc. Having a piece of her GMG Collection kind of reminds me how far she has come and that I can do the same if I want it badly enough. I also just really really love girly dresses even though I don't get to wear them all the time :) When this Courtney dress came back in stock last month I contemplated getting the pink but knew I had to go with the original dress I thought about all the time... kind of a Craig's List missed connection?!

Sandy and I went to Dumbarton Oaks for these photos and the whole area was an absolute dream. Flowers and new places to explore everywhere you went. The wisteria had just passed peak so when we walked into the courtyard opening with this section I almost squealed in delight (actually I'm pretty sure I did squeal haha) because I thought we had missed the big sections of it growing. After we took these photos Sandy said to me "Okay, so did we get enough Wisteria shots?" hahaha I think it's safe to say we did ;) Absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to go back and explore this hidden gem even more. If you go be sure to bring a student id and you can get in for $5 instead of $10!

Love Always,

{yellow dress in a daffodil field}

It's hard to not smile when you're surrounded by hundreds of daffodils and the sun is shining!

A couple of weekends ago I ventured out to Burnside Farms with Kaise to shoot and was blown away at how beautiful all of the flowers were. Even though the tulips had almost all died (or been picked!) the daffodils were the true stunners. I love seeing these flowers growing all over the city because it's a true reminder that spring is here. Especially when you see them randomly growing along the side of the road - they're so resilient and keep coming back year after year.

It only made sense to throw on this little yellow sundress that I found on Amazon! I originally purchased it to wear on my birthday but it was a little rainy/cloudy so I'm glad I wore it early to the flower fields! The ties on the shoulder are adjustable and you can adjust the way the top gathers too. It made for such a light and comfortable dress in the sun while picking flowers! Who doesn't love a $19 dress too?! The material wasn't see through and I felt like it stayed wrinkle free pretty well too - we got Chipotle afterwards (shooting makes you hungry) and I still felt cute and put together after a burrito bowl ;)
Have you ever been to pick flowers before? This was my first time - I can't wait for sunflower season!

Love Always,
