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!

Something Natural

You know I love color. I mean, you’ve seen my apartment. I don’t really do the natural thing. But something has me drawn to simpler things recently. Clean lines, spring blooms, earthy flavors, creams and greens. Could be my crazy schedule, could be that spring is on its way. I’m sure it won’t last long (I mean I had to include that bottom left photo just so there was a little pink in this post!), but it’s really lovely right now.

What colors are you drawn to recently? Are you into naturals like me or have you already moved on to spring brights? Have a happy Wednesday!
