I don’t know what it is about the lace-up trend but guys, I cannot get enough! It’s a fun little detail that looks fabulous on dresses and tops, and it’s a go-to for me for girl’s night out. I love this English Factory dress from Shopbop because it’s under $100 and it can be worn a little more casually. I dressed this piece down with a pair of Converse and a sleek crossbody. Once the sun decides to come out in D.C., this will totally be a go-to brunch outfit for me.

Also, I have a lot of people ask me what’s a good place to get inexpensive, yet stylish handbags. Urban Expressions has been my favorite for years, I bought my first UE bag at South Moon Under when I was in college and I’ve been hooked on the brand ever since! Seriously, if you’re looking for a nice bag for under $100, Urban Expressions is totally where you need to look.

  6. I love this look 🙂 Lace up has been an obsession with me as well. I just bought a black halter lace up body suit from and it’s all kinds of fantastic 🙂
