I feel like spring grabbed a hold of me with its gnarly (and not the ‘awesome’ kind) claws and didn’t let go. Somehow I’ve broken free and I’m finally settling back into my normal routine. On a more relaxed weekend before the 16  consecutive days of rain that we had in Virginia, B and I did one of our favorite things and walked from our Del Ray apartment to Old Town Alexandria for dinner. We have our favorite places for happy hour in the area, but we are always looking to try new places. Virtue Feed and Grain has been on the list for a little wile, so we finally gave it a try and were not disappointed. It was even mild enough to eat outside, so we got a double-dose of fresh air.

On days when there’s not a whole lot on the agenda, I like to throw my hair up in a messy bun and put on a comfy tee, leggings, and Keds. To “upscale” the look a little I throw on a blazer or jacket, like this neutral one from Zara, and a bright lip color. Tees and blazers are my go-to for almost every occasion – both work and play – which works because I can go from activity to activity without having to change. If there is anything I hate more than peanut butter, it’s having to put on more than one set of clothes per day. I know, I blaspheme. Please forgive me, just this once.

I have never been much of a pastel person, but this Valentine’s Day I put myself in a delicate blush dress that I found in a second hand store and a blush and gold petal necklace from Stella & Dot’s new spring line. There’s something about pastel tones that whisper (because screaming would not be very lady like) femininity, and I have very much been gravitating toward that ethereal color palette lately. Normally I’m a bright blue, crisp white, and classic black kind of gal, but I think I may make a little room in my heart for blush, aquamarine, lavender, and all things feminine this spring.
