Lets Talk About Bras...








Bras from top to bottom:
Wacoal (my favorite bra of all time!)
Freya (We can have fun bras too!!!) 

Since high school I have been searching for the perfect bra. One that isn't too thin, isn't dumpy, still lifts and separates and is comfortable. Most that I had tried didn't last very long or left deep indents on my shoulders because they couldn't support the weight. 

I finally resigned to the fact that I needed to leave Victoria's Secret behind and venture into new lands in the world of braziers. 

I took research into my own hands and looked up how to measure myself for a bra to get the proper fit. That is when I discovered that if I make sure the band is snug it will help support and alleviate the pressure on my shoulders. Once I figured out my perfect size: 34 F, it was time to invest in a bra that would take my ladies to another level of comfort and support. Wacoal was the first brand I tried and absolutely fell in love with! It was like I could breathe again and a lot of the back pain I was feeling lessened significantly. 

My ladies looked supported and great in my clothes, no spilling over or popping out. When you figure out your true size and try that miracle bra on for the first time it really is a life-changing event! 

Make sure to look at each of the brand's measuring tips because sometimes they can vary from brand to brand. If you don't want to do it yourself look up a boutique that knows what they are doing to do it for you. 

Good luck in your search! I would love to hear about your travels in the world of braziers! 

Keep those ladies happy and lifted!

Tartan Swing




















Outfit Details:
jacket: Talbots
dress: Asos
boots: Altuzarra for Target
necklace: vintage
ear cuff: Etsy
belt: Uniquely Y Etsy
ring: Charming Charlie's
bracelet: Emitations (c/o)
lipstick: Kat von D Studded lipstick in Homegirl

I got this cute dress from Asos during one of their amazing sales, I know it has more of a spring look to it, but I couldn't wait to wear it! So to make it more appropriate for fall I paired the dress with my fave tartan blazer and some awesome fishnet tights.

I loved shooting this with Keith in Georgetown and can't wait to do more photoshoots in urban settings! I think it adds some flair to my posts!

Stay tuned for some more amazing coming your way before the end of the year, even a makeup tutorial!

Navy & Stars
















Outfit Details:
trench: Michael Kors
top: Banana Republic
skirt: Vintage Escada via Thredup
shoes: Sole Society 
bracelets: Latitudes Fair Trade Store, vintage
ring: Pandora

When I first saw this skirt on Thredup, I fell in love instantly! The fact that it was at such a low price for an Escada skirt blew my mind! So I swiped it up! I had originally thought it was a polka dotted skirt and was pleasantly surprised when I got it and saw that they were stars. I love stars!

I have been so excited to assemble an outfit with this skirt that I could never choose what I wanted to do for my first post featuring this skirt. That is why it has taken so long to make its debut. I met up with Keith in Georgetown, with is adorable daughter as his assistant, and I thought this skirt would work perfectly. I love how it turned out! I don't wear pink very often, but I do like how the soft pink pairs with the navy in the trench and the skirt, with the added twinkle of the gold stars.

Do you have the new piece you are obsessed with and just can't decide how you want to wear it?
