I’m back in DC now, but I sure did enjoy the warmer temps in Florida and getting to spend some time with my boyfriend and family. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

One of my longtime-friends, Kaitlyn Rondolino, is a great photographer, so we teamed up to shoot a few looks for you while I was home for the holiday. She knew of some awesome murals in St.Pete for us to shoot at, including this massive one of a shark.

If you haven’t been to St.Petersburg, FL (St.Pete for short), you really should plan a visit. My hometown is booming with everything from nightlife and micro-breweries to hand-painted murals and fabulous restaurants. I really can’t say enough good things about this city! I remember when I couldn’t wait to move away, but now I thoroughly enjoy going back. I especially love seeing things change from visit to visit.

This suede jacket is genuine suede and a steal from Forever 21! It’s not stiff like you’d imagine normal suede to be. It’s stretchy and flexible. The concert tee is more than I’d normally spend on a t-shirt, but I wear it constantly, so it was worth it and now I want a dozen more.

Did you do anything special over the holiday or have a funny story to share? Comment below. I’d love to hear!

I’m officially on vacation! Woo whoooo!!! I love my job, but it’s nice to get away from work for a while and head back home. Since my boyfriend and I didn’t get to celebrate our 5-year-anniversary together, we’re celebrating it while I’m on vacay. He booked a hotel in Orlando for 4 days and we’re going to Disney. I can’t wait!

I’ve lived in DC for almost a year now, and no matter how many times I pass the National Mall (“The Mall”), I still can’t get over how amazing it is. It is a whole different experience though, an even cooler one, when the cherry blossoms have bloomed. Of course, there were tourists EVERYWHERE when I went, so I did have to be patient in order to get pictures without tons of people in them. I would still do it all over again though! Whether you live in DC or not, a trip down to the Tidal Basin and the National Mall where the Cherry Blossoms are is beyond worth it. Ziggy came with me too– and although he can’t talk, I know he enjoyed it…especially because of all the attention and pets he got from tourists. Note-to-self: If I’m ever super broke, go down to The Mall and let people pay a $1 to take pictures with Ziggy. I’d make a fortune…or at least enough for a new pair of shoes.
