“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you are going to mess it up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up… So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” – Marilyn Monroe

Weekday Style

So my days lately are pretty jam packed with work and class… but luckily, I love both – and I love fall. The leaves are (slowly) changing, pumpkins are everywhere, my birthday is fast-approaching (yay!), and it’s finally jacket season. During the work week, there is nothing I’d rather wear than slim black pants, fun heels, and a great jacket. It’s definitely my “go-to,” and transitions perfectly from work to class. Whether I’m in a meeting or reciting a case, I absolutely need to feel comfortable/confident.

Paris Part 2

As promised, I’m sharing a few more photos from Paris today! Because I was traveling alone (and take horrible selfies), I reached out to a photographer I had seen on a few other blogs (see this beauty and this one), and whose work I LOVED, to see if we could get together for a portrait session while I was in the city. Everyone – if you are in Paris, you must meet up with Katie of Katie Mitchell Photography! She made me feel completely comfortable and we had the best time wandering around Paris! I couldn’t be happier about how the photos turned out. So… who wants to move to Paris with me?

Banana Republic Fall

I’ve been a loyal fan of Banana Republic for some time now (evidence here and here) but I think this fall collection takes it to a whole new level (of note: J.Crew alum Marissa Webb was named the new creative director and executive vice president of design last spring). You can shop a few pieces early here, and the whole collection goes live tomorrow! Also, a couple weeks ago I picked up this skirt, this skirt, and these pumps, and am seriously obsessed. THANKS Banana Republic!

Forever 21 Tysons

Over the weekend, Forever 21 opened a newly remodeled and expanded store (over 26,627 square feet) at their Tyson’s Corner location (1961 Chain Bridge Rd). And it’s just in time for fall! I’m loving their fall collection (see below), which features trends like oversized, luxe boho, minimalist and textured, with lots of knits in camels and grays, plus prints. Also, don’t miss The Outerwear Edit, featuring Anja Rubik.


On the new store, Forever 21 General Merchandise Manager Linda Chang says, “Our remodeled and expanded location in Tyson’s Corner Center will continue to serve Forever 21 fans in the McLean, Virginia and greater Washington, DC area. The new store layout and overall concept will ensure the best shopping experience and environment for our customers.” Be sure to check it out!

Fall Layers

Believe me, I know it’s still pretty warm out there, but I can’t stop thinking about layers already! Fall is just so perfect… scarves, jackets, pumpkins, boots, coffee, leather… For more of my fall favorites, see my Pinterest board here, along with this old (but still applicable) post here!
