The Mint Julep Boutique Maxi Dress 2_3

Another day, another easy, breezy maxi dress! I honestly can’t decide which I like best — what do you think? I’m thinking this one will be my wear-to-work pick, and yesterday’s summery pink number will be the date night go-to.  Seriously though, I’ll just be over here buying (and hemming) every single one of The Mint Julep Boutique’s lovely floor-length maxis. Can you blame me?

Staying Refreshed in the DC Summer Heat

Starbucks Bottled Iced Coffee 5

I already talked earlier this week about how much I dread the part of DC summer when you feel like you’re absolutely going to melt and there’s really just nothing you can do to try to stay composed during it.

50 Shades of Blue 4

It’s officially that time of year! You know what I’m talking about: that dreaded, hazy, melt-your-face-off time of year when the only outfits that will do are breezy sundresses and casual cotton layers. But when the milder side of DC summer reared its head on Sunday, the bf and I knew we couldn’t hide inside — at least not for the entire day. The perfect solution?
