So this is our deck! We have a backyard (well, kind of, it's mostly deck) and it's awesome. Such adulting. But, still gonna wear all the cat things, all the time.

gray suede + burgundy.

Long time no blog! I didn't mean to take two months off from blogging, but we spent the whole month of March getting our new house ready, moving into it, and adjusting to a huge life change. Plus, work has been super busy. So, I've been trying to get back to taking outfit photos again, especially now that I have a home office/studio/loft with great natural light, and a backyard!

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Old Navy
Tights: Target
Boots: Amazon
Necklace: LouLou

I've been wearing a variation of this outfit pretty consistently: swing dress, boots, and a fun necklace. Also, the backdrop of these photos is part of my loft! Our house has a finished basement, 2 master bedrooms, and a finished loft, so my husband and I decided that he gets the basement and I get the loft, as our respective working spaces. 

Eventually I'm going to post some photos of the house—it's actually mostly set up and decorated now!

big news!

So the reason I haven't been posting regularly is...

We're now the owners of a beautiful townhouse with 2 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and a fourth level loft! We're SO excited! This was certainly not an easy process and took a good amount of time, but we're so excited to have more space, and space that we own!

Over the next month we'll be moving from the one bedroom apartment we've been in for five years to the house—thankfully we have time so we don't have to rush.

Anyways, there's the worst keep secret so far this year.

merc with a meow.

Let's ignore the fact that this outfit is a little similar to the last one I posted, and focus on the amazingness of these leggings.

What I'm wearing:
Jacket: BlankNYC via Nordstrom
Dress: Old Navy
Leggings: Black Milk Clothing, gift
Boots: Madden Girl
Scarf: Target
Necklace: Target
Bag: vintage Coach 

Yes, my leggings are the Deadpool version of Hello Kitty (or the Hello Kitty version of Deadpool?) and say "merc with a meow." My husband got them for me for Christmas (all the way from Australia!) and I don't think I've ever been so excited for leggings. They're the bestttttt.

shop local: off on a tangent.

Last week my friend Katie introduced me to Off on a Tangent Shop via an entry into a Galentine's Day Instagram giveaway, and I immediately fell in love with the DC based jewelry. Off on a Tangent is run by Alissa, who designs jewelry based on architecture and travel experiences. As a bonus, Katie and I won the giveaway! We received the beautiful Cour necklace—based on the Louvre—below (I got poppy):
Alissa and her husband are both architects, and this is apparent in their work. I love supporting local artists, especially ones that are so thorough and talented—they even outline their process on their website.

A few of my favorite pieces (besides the Cour necklace) are below:

And, bonus! Alissa is offering a discount code, so you can have one of her gorgeous designs in your collection. Click here to shop and use code "tulleandboots20"!
