Hard to believe it's been cool enough to even consider wearing pants this July, but so be it. And these layers are deceivingly summer-friendly because they're both loose and ventilated. Oh and as for the title? It's completely literal. I picked up these mirrored babies at 7 Eleven a couple weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased with the purchase.

7 Eleven sunglasses (other reasonably-priced options here and here)
antique Navajo squash blossom (beautiful one here)
silver and turquoise necklace
Elizabeth & James sweater (old, new style here)
turquoise and silver bracelets and ring (love this one)
Elaine B. rings
J Brand jeans
Dolce Vita sandals (old, currently coveting these)

Perfection on a plate at Kaz Sushi Bistro.

Just a few of my favorite things I've been doing (mostly eating) no particular order...


The most wonderful time of the year: cherry season at the farmers' market.


Mad scientist Sandra Tran whipping something delicious at Nice Cream Factory.


Sherry and cured ham (a truly magical combination) at Mockingbird Hill.


Faira the cheese cow at the Inn at Little Washington.


Dazzling Times Square from our Belmont trip.


Tasty 4th of July shrimp pot at the Tackle Box.


Overstuffed (and no one said that's a bad thing) at Sundevich.


Alfresco always this summer with grilled tri-tip, roasted broccoli, and caprese.


Afternoon snack of sliced raw scallops and dumplings at Doi Moi.


Fresh floral accents on the roasted seabream at Mintwood Place.


Sparkling rose and a triple stack burger make for a delicious combo at the Partisan.


Mouth-watering cupcake assortment from the Cakeroom.


Beautiful views from our recent trip to Linden Vineyards, one of our favorite Virginia wineries!

This outfit is comprised mostly of things I recently acquired from the Anthropologie sale and couldn't wait to wear. Can we talk about how Anthro is seriously nailing it in the jewelry department right now?

Anyway, these photos were from this past Saturday (yeah, I ended up switching the top). After a failed attempt to get free ice cream at the Union Market's DC Scoop, we made our way to Sundevich, followed by Seasonal Pantry for pickling spices and Darryl Carter for their incredible candles (seriously, these give Diptyque a run for their money).

Ann Taylor necklace (old, loving this one)

Just a little something I put together for dinner with the 'rents at Mintwood Place, which was, incidentally, delicious! Southern/French fusion cuisine is kind of my ideal so I was glad this place lived up to the hype. Our favorites were the surprisingly-simple, yet addictively-tasty blistered shishito peppers, the roasted seabream (complete with edible flowers!), bucatini bolognese, and the cucumber and watercress gazpacho. Can I get golf clap for managing to get my silk dress out of this place without any drink or food stains?
