A dinner outfit, though I see work potential as well. I think the color of this sweater is actually called "Geranium," which is appropriate given the time of year. Gotta find some way to cheer up spring layers, right?

green room



Current conditions excluded, we've been taking full advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to get started early on our garden. So naturally I've been trolling pinterest and tumblr for as much garden inspiration as I can find. I'm more of a rustic girl when it comes to garden design - too much structure stifles me. That, and I'm too lazy busy to micromanage, so I've been attempting to find plants that will kind of romantically take over... or at least that's what I hope they'll do....

The last time I wore this, I believe a couple of you mentioned that this would make for the perfect Easter dress. I very much agreed and so this is what I wore for Easter brunch. Afterward, B and I thought we would walk around and check out our old neighborhood. This used to be our favorite place for taking photographs when we lived in Cleveland Park - can you guess where it is?

billion dollar moments



The past couple weekends' activities as documented through Instragram. Thank God they finally let us Android kids join the party or I would have felt a little left out. More stuff @districtofchic.

Sunday's porch-sitting outfit. Already dreaming of doing much of the same this weekend...

I've also been trying my hand at domestic goddesstry. This remedial attempt at flower arranging uses what was available in my yard - lilac, fennel, and hellebore.
