Hello LA! Landed here yesterday and I am in shopping heaven. I desperately wanted to check out the famous Grove and Farmers Market so I spent a lot of time there yesterday browsing, trying on, contemplating why a tank top was $300 and eating caramel corn while lamenting not fitting into a size 2! Haha but seriously it was a beautiful day and the highlight of my shopping experience were these black lace shorts in the Guess by Marciano store. I loved that the sales girl threw together an adorable outfit for me from head to toe in about 5 seconds–complete with the most adorable pair of wedges ever! Sadly I was in between sizes but I can’t stop thinking about them so I might head back today and just buy the smaller size and use them as my “summer goal pants.” Sounds like a smashing idea to me!
I included some highlights in the pic below: MK chain sneakers, some pretty dresses from Madewell (yep, I think this is a new favorite store!), and me and Tambe in front of the fountain at The Grove (it was filled with huge, beautiful Koi fish, too!).
I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your Memorial Day weekend! As always, thanks for reading! XOXO I’m off to Disney in a bit and I am excited like a little kid!

It’s so much fun when I’m included in blogger events in the DC-area, and I was so excited to be a guest of Wacoal last night! They hosted an amazing little soiree with local bloggers and members of the press at the Monaco Hotel, one of my fav Kimpton hotels in DC (they were even a feature post last year–who doesn’t love a custom-made puzzle mirror?!). We were introduced to some of their new styles, including the b.tempt’d line which has the prettiest lace bras, features bright neon colors and has a sexy flare for when you’re feeling like it’s a “time to match my bra and panties” kind of night! The bright yellow Ciao Bella balconette bra was probably my favorite out of the line. I was most excited though to get a proper fitting because ever since I’ve lost some weight I haven’t been sure exactly what size I should be buying! A Wacoal expert fitted us all one-by-one in the gorgeous Majestic Suite and then we each got to choose a bra of our liking. I ended up going with the T-back convertible bra because, like most things I purchase living in a small space, I like them to have more than one function! I wish I had a huge bureau to house my endless collection of lingerie and clothes but that just isn’t the case so I’ll take my double duty items anywhere I can get them haha! This bra is great because I will be able to wear it with racer-back tanks that I seem to be getting more and more into and the back has a pretty lace detail–but you can also completely remove the straps and wear it as a strapless. Genius! I’ve included a little gallery of the evening below for your viewing pleasure!
