Camel & LBD Combo


Every girl’s go to for date night is a LBD, am I right? I picked this one up on a recent visit to the new & Other Stories boutique in Georgetown. I love the dress details like its flirty length, the deep-V neckline, the bell sleeves, and the exaggerated waistline with those cute covered buttons. I also love the fact that it cost me less than $100!


I love pairing feminine dresses with masculine outerwear (see a similar combo here) and lately my go-to has been this double-breasted camel coat (also a steal at around 100$). Camel and black work really well together, and the coat’s tailored silhouette gives the look an urban, sophisticated feel that would transition well from the office to happy hour.


Of course I had to throw in a few eye-catching, feminine details like leopard heels (similar here and here) and my favorite statement bag (similar bi-c0lor combo here and here). The outfit was perfect for my date night with hubby at Kinship, one of the most upscale casual spots in the District (if you haven’t been there yet GO and order the roasted chicken for two)!

I Believe in Pink


Pink is definitely having a moment, and I am feeling it. I’ve never been a huge fan, but the lighter shades, like this lovely, almost neutral rose gold pink, is my latest obsession. It works really well with other neutral colors, like camel.


Not only is this color combination one of my favorites, but I also like the mix of texture and styles here: i.e. a super feminine mini dress with a sequin mesh overlay, a fuzzy  oversized pink sweater, pretty pink heels and clutch, and a masculine camel overcoat.


The look mixes hints of glamour, romance, sex, and power…perfect for Valentine’s date night, don’t you think?
