One of my favorite things about living in DC is how walkable it is. And I love to explore the city when the weather is nice. However after this weeks snow, nice weather seems like a distant memory. When I know that I'll be doing a lot of walking, I always pull out my Chucks. I can cover a decent amount of miles in these babies and pairing them with some crackled leather denim keeps it from looking too casual.
As part of the Gwen Stefani x OPI collection, I picked up a mini sample set of four shades, which included this wonderful deep vampy shade of red. This color looks black in most light even sunlight and I'm not complaining about that. However, it really is a deep rich vampy red and I've talked about my love for these shades before and this shade only reaffirms that love. I definitely will be purchasing the full-size bottle.
Cardigans are one of the most practical clothing items that you can own and wear all year long. They are like the blazer’s younger sister – worn with everything you immediately look more pulled together. I love cardigans because they can be styled multiple ways; draped or tied over your shoulders, paired with your favorite denim or slacks, or worn over a dress to cover up bare arms. In the Summer months, you won’t need them outside but when you pop-in to your favorite boutique or restaurant where the AC is on full-blast, you’ll be glad you had one. In the Winter months, it will be the perfect go-to layering piece adding that extra layer or warmth without the bulk. They come in a variety of styles from cashmere to cotton; ¾ length to full sleeve; and in a rainbow of solid colors to fun prints. They are great to add a pop of color to an outfit or to tone down a printed dress. I have dozens and each season continually add new ones when my previous ones have worn out their welcome.
