Shine On

Shine On: gray, gold, lime, yellow for spring

Woah it’s Monday again already? It’s getting cold again this week…so instead I’ll be thinking of eating lemon sorbet and walking barefoot in fresh green grass. Come on spring! Subtle fun prints, metallics, and bright accessories – these are definitely a few of my favorite spring things! Also I’m digging this lighter combo of citrus and gray. Especially when it’s shiny or involves leopard print. Pretty pretty.

Soaking it in

coffee, chocolate cake, every day, bright bed

Not much to say today. It’s been quite a week so far. Thanks for sticking with me. I’m just soaking it in. Working hard. Figuring it out. I hope you had a good week though. What do you have in store for the weekend? All I really want to do is slow down for a little bit and bake a chocolate cake. That’s my therapy. Have a lovely weekend, friends.

Where the Boys Are

Where the Boys Are – men's style with reyal fashion

Happy Monday friends! Ok so I’ve officially started my new job at Hugh & Crye! H&C is a menswear company in DC making dress shirts that fit. While working at a startup means I’ll be doing a bit of everything (I’m going to learn so much!), my main focus will be marketing: editorial, social, events, and much more. I’m very excited, but I would by lying if I didn’t also say I’m also nervous to start something new. I’m ready for this next adventure though and I’d love your support especially in the first few weeks:

  • Follow H&C on twitter, instagram, pinterest, and tumblr – cute guys, great style, fun times.
  • Help me with my research. What are your favorite men’s style blogs and brands? Who’s style do you/your men love?
  • Excuse me if I’m a little absent here a bit – of course I’m going to try to keep up on my blog while I start out, but I’m also immersing myself in my new job so I can kick ass and learn a lot. I know you all can understand that.

Wish me luck! Have a great week!

Spring It On

One of the little tasks I want to complete while on my mini vacation is organizing my online life a bit…grouping blogs together in my reader, starting some twitter lists, making sense of some pinterest boards that are now over three years old, etc. As I’m separating out my style board into seasons (OCD much? yeah, you’ve done it too) I’m becoming more and more excited for spring. Brighter colors, no more coats, fresh air, lighter layers. I’m so ready. Spring it on.

Giveaway: Willy Moon at U Street Music Hall

When you listen to a great song and all you want to do is dance – the last thing you want to be wearing is something you can’t move in. I love adding one casual and comfy piece for a night out at a show…like an oversized t-shirt, beanie + side braid, sweatshirt, my favorite worn in jeans, or sneakers in a great color.

Need some music to get you in the dancing mood? Check out my updated 2013 playlist. It includes a fun song by Willy Moon (who also happens to be super stylish himself).
