It’s so hard to believe that it’s already July and that I’ve officially lived in DC for a year! So much has happened in the last year, including the fact that I started this here blog. 😉 It’s nice to have something that’s not only a hobby, but a creative outlet for me as well. While I may not have mastered the business side of blogging just yet, I’m really enjoying it for what it is and love reading the comments you guys leave me.The outfit above is by-far one of my favorites. The dress is from Free People and I justified buying it because I had a return. It’s SUPER comfy and the fabric is soft and airy. Brian (my boyfriend) would kill me if he knew how much I spent on it. Technically it wasn’t that much though, since I returned something…right? Anyway, since it is pricey, I linked a site that has it on sale. Also, these Prada sunglasses are my first ever name brand splurge! Honestly, I’m still having shopper’s remorse. I’m planning on keeping them though, so get used to seeing them!! I found a great “inspired version” for just $7 that I thought ya’ll would love! It’s linked above.

Hope your July is off to a great start! I’d love to know if you guys have ever splurged on something and felt guilty after? What was it? Leave a comment below.pretty little blog signature
