This month's Bloggers Who Budget collab is all about one of my all time favorites, Stripes. I can't get enough of stripes. I was looking at my closet the other day and realized that I have a serious love affair with stripes, but then again who doesn't. Stripes are fun, versatile & can easily be considered a neutral. This striped pencil skirt was purchased a while back in efforts to build my work wardrobe for my future job. It has been such a versatile piece in my closet over the last couple months and is easily paired with neutrals or colorful, bold pieces.
Creating a gallery has to be one of the most stressful things to do ... like ever. I seem to get a little overwhelmed when trying to find the right artwork and prints & ... actually nail them on the wall. I always keep thinking "what-if I find a new print" or "what-if they don't look good" or "what-if I change my mind." There will always be what-if's in life & I got to thinking ... my gallery wall shouldn't be one of them. Until recently, figuring out the correct measurements to create the gallery wall was a pain in my petunia (aka bootay).
I am a little kid when it comes to getting new gadgets. When I was sent the new Dell Venue 8 Tablet with RealSense technology I was pretty giddy. The first thing I had to test out was the camera, obvi. & it is pretty amazing! The RealSense Technology is unlike anything you have ever seen or played with. When taking a photo there are three camera's that allow you to get the most accurate measurement possible when taking a picture. You can then take measurements right on the screen which I found to be super convenient & way less stressful when trying to pick out a piece of artwork and create my gallery wall. Also, another cool feature is being able to change the focus after you shoot, which we all know can be the most frustrating then when you take a picture & the focus isn't right. Last weekend, I decided it was time to add some spunk to my girl cave. I have had my eye on a couple pieces of artwork & finally decided to bite the bullet & purchase a colorful piece to add to my creative space. I hope to pick it up this week & show you the final product once I get it hung on the wall. Decorating my office has always been a dream of mine so I am really excited to show you all an office tour & hope you are too! In the meantime, are there any pieces of artwork or prints that you have had your eye on?

The weather this weekend in DC was absolutely gorgeous. It was in the 60s-70s all weekend & honestly, I couldn't have asked for a better four days off. Saturday, my mom & her best friend Lori drove into town to see the Cherry Blossoms & despite my anxiety leading up to them getting here, I decided to tackle the city crowds with them. Even though I have lived in DC for over two years, I have yet to see the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom. Saturday we caught the metro, walked almost 2 miles & finally, I got to so much of my gorgeous city that I haven't had the chance to see. The weather was perfect, the people were cray (ha!) & the Cherry Blossoms were worth the trip.
This easy Spring outfit was perfect for the day in the city. I grabbed my favorite Keds, the most comfy white skinny jeans & my go-top top for an easy afternoon walking around. These jeans are the comfiest jeans & these Keds x Party Skirts shoes* will be worn daily because they are just so darn cute. & to be honest, I have been gravitating towards my keds for my morning walks to work. They make it easy to get to and from the office without the swollen feet, the blisters & of course looking silly. They are super trendy & I get compliments daily! They are def. worth the investment if you don't own a pair. What is your easy go-to Spring outfit?
