Going for Gold: The Boden Mya Bag

Cupcakes for Breakfast: Boden Mya gold bag

Yesterday I was telling you about my new camera adventures…trying new things, exploring new creative outlets, rediscovering things I love.

One of my favorite color-loving brands, Boden, sent me this perfect spring bag. It’s shiny gold and fits my camera perfectly. On the weekends I want nothing to do with the large totes that I carry my laptop around in all week. I want something light, small, and that goes with everything. This is the bag. Perfect for a weekend hopping around the city.

Love it too? Not only is the Boden Mya bag on sale but I’m giving you another 15% off + free shipping (valid through 5/24). Promise you’ll carry it as much as I do. (And it also comes in pink and leopard. How’s a girl to choose?)

This is basically going to be my spring uniform. Sure I’m excited about bright colors and dresses, but honestly I’m just happy to be a casual jeans girl right now. At work, on weekends. With comfy tees, with heels if I must but mostly loafers, with layered baubles, with denim on top too. On a farm, walking around the city, traveling, parked at a bar with a beer and a burger. Maybe not as interesting as my previous outfits on instagram, but I’ll try to share these too in a new way. Bring it, spring denim days.

The Skirt

One perk of my (newish and amazing) job is the casual setting but I’ll be honest that I miss dressing up a little. I can’t remember the last time I wore a skirt. But the holidays are coming up and I should make an excuse to dress up a little…even if it’s just out to dinner with my girlfriends. These girls are doing it right, with added volume, texture, and color. Totally making me want to leave my jeans at home!

Fall in Black & White

I’ve been living in neutrals recently. Cozy gray sweaters, black leggings with leather accents, an occasional leopard print, studded loafers, fluffy cream scarves. When life is crazy and you’re just running from meetings to events to dates to dinners to, it’s just easier. Simple. Chic. And surprisingly cozy. It doesn’t have to be boring one bit. A few of my current faves….

Giveaway: Honor by August at 9:30 Club

In summer, I always go with brights. It’s how I feel. Bright. Happy. When the sun is shining and the music is pumped up. But I’m challenging myself to go black and white for summer. And a concert at the end of a long week seems like just the perfect time for it. (Cause let’s be honest, I’ll be tired and black and white is so so easy.) I’d probably go with ripped denim, a favorite white tee, a sparkly accessory, and fun shoes for dancing. Scroll down for some more easy-breezy black and white inspiration while you listen to my updated 2013 playlist.

Ok, now to the fun part…I’m giving away two tickets to see Honor by August at the 9:30 Club this Friday! Their love songs are fun and sweet and the show would be a perfect girlfriend date night in DC. Plus it turns out these guys look pretty cute in black and white too. (Fun fact: they were the first band I ever saw at 9:30 when they opened for Hanson in 2005.) To enter to win, leave a comment below with your current favorite song. Good luck!
