Life Lately Vol. 3 + A Special Invite

dc fashion blogger, arlington lifestyle blog

TGIF! I’m going to be 100% honest with you, because of all this rain in addition to my full-time job, I’ve been struggling lately to do photoshoots. So I have zilch. Nada. That’s why I only had one outfit post up this week, as opposed to two. However, here are some snaps from my Instagram as of late (also — thank y’all for helping me get to 10K, I was pretty stoked about that!)

By the way, that’s my mom pictured above. I love living close to her so that I can see her whenever I want. We had a blast on Mother’s Day, and I love her to pieces!

Travel Plans. I have back to back trips coming up, and I’m super excited! This weekend I’ll be in Philly, then I’ll be in Baltimore for The Preakness, then I’m in Punta Cana for a week, then I’ll be in New York. Phew! This is all over the course of the next 3.5 weeks. I’m super excited, but I’m also mildly stressing out with the amount of work I have to do. I forsee a lot of train station and airport work sessions over the next few weeks!

Blog Chat. Yes, as you see, I’ve had to be slightly quieter than normal on the blog. Things are picking up quite a bit at my full-time job, so I need to take a little bit of a step back. I have a lot of fun campaigns coming up though that I’m super stoked to share, and I’m stoked about my recent campaign with Aerie and my current campaign with Coach on Instagram!
