Style // My Pink Pride Outfit for Capital Style Magazine

Nanette Lepore Handloom Shift Dress / H&M Tailored Jacket / Kate Spade Tweed Bag (similar here & here) / Prada Cat Eye Sunglasses / Vintage watch (similar) / DV by Dolce Vita Danilo Sandals / Julie Vos Coin Bangle Bracelet (similar)

Hi guys! I'm so excited that I finally get to share with you my Pink Pride outfit from my latest feature in Capital Style Magazine. The October issue is all about Breast Cancer Awareness and we wanted to showcase some in-demand pink fashions from the fabulous local boutiques in Annapolis in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

To show my support, my pink pride outfit is all about being able to wear something bold (that gorgeous Nanette Lepore Handloom Shift Dress from Wrabyn) but showing you that you can keep it work appropriate (with the white blazer) or after work fun (with those heels). I realize that pink is a very polarizing color for women. Some women looove it and some keep far away from it. I wanted to show you that you can wear it and keep is as edgy/masculine as you want it to be, or as girly & feminine as you'd like. It's all about how you layer and accessorize your pink piece. Because the dress has a lot of black mixed throughout the print, I added other black pieces to tie it together all while keeping it a bit more edgy and less frou frou.

Even if you're not all about pink, show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness month by wearing some!

Weekend Recap // Our Quick NYC Getaway

photo 1
The Marlton Hotel. The loveliest hotel we've ever stayed in. It was so well-appointed that we didn't care how small the room was.

We are back from our quick trip to NYC and had just about the best time! Even though we were there for one night, we really packed it in. I was able to meet with a friend and talk shop, then Steve and I walked around and did a little shopping (so rare for the two of us to do this without Cora), and then it was time for our dinner reservations. The next morning we woke up somewhat early to grab some breakfast and enjoyed it at Washington Square Park while people watching. We squeezed in a few more shopping destinations after that and then ended our trip with the kind of comfort food you'd want when staying in the NYU area, ramen. Check out the pics from our trip below!

Met my friend, Courtney, at Buvette's, a cafe that instantly transported me to France.

We don't have a crew cuts section in our J.Crew in Annapolis, so I was having entirely too much fun finding all sorts of goodies for Cora at the one on 5th Ave.

Enjoyed a magical, romantic dinner at Palma. The setting was to-die-for and the wall of perfectly blossomed roses was insane.

Absolutely magical.

After dinner, we stumbled upon the coolest, most fun vintage shop ever, Krystyna's Place. The owner, Krystyna, was a total kindred spirit and we bonded over how we both love vintage everything and our hoarding tendencies.

This dress stole my heart.

And this one too.

Just stunning. There's really nothing more that you can say about this.

Simple yet sooo good.

Another one that I just had to try on.

No trip to NYC is complete without a stop at Fishs Eddy.

Ended our trip with some good 'ol comfort food at Ramen-Ya.

Style // My Kind of Coffee Date Look

Lou Lou Boutique Modern Floppy Fedora (similar here & here) / LOFT Sweetheart Print Bow Blouse / old Madewell Booties (similar) / old Zara Blush Coat (similar here & here) / Clare V. Croc Duffle Petit (similar) / Dittos Calypso Jeans / Vintage Avon White Lucite and Gold Tone Cuff Bracelet / Julie Vos Bangle Bracelet (similar) / Valerie Nahmani Designs Druzy Bracelet / Prada 54mm Cat Eye Sunglasses

I love hats. Despite the fact that I don't wear them that often, I really do love them. And the minute I saw this modern floppy fedora, I knew it would be the perfect accessory for this Fall season. I took it out for a spin with my new Loft printed blouse for a coffee date with my husband and I have to say, this is now my favorite look for Fall. It's easy, comfortable and warm too!
