The Essentials

Everyone has their go-to pieces and accessories — things that when melded really play a part in defining their style. If you take a quick flip through my Instagram, hopefully you can get a good sense of who I am and my preferences when it comes to dressing and accessorizing. There are pretty much four staples to my attire; things you’ll always see me wearing and things I live and swear by: a quilted jacket, cat eye shades, houndstooth, and pearls. I wanted to put my images  in different sections but so often you see me wear my go-to items together that I thought maybe just placing all the shots below would be easier not only for me but for you all to see how I like to wear them!

Headshot

So a couple of weeks ago I attended The Knot Pro Workshop in Washington D.C. The day came with amazing speakers, presentations, and the inclusive feeling of being around industry professionals (something I’m endeavorimg to be) happy to network and share their wealth of knowledge. One of many things offered at this event was the opportunity to have a headshot taken professionally and of course I practically jumped at this chance! I received my photo back this morning and this is the result. Thank you to Love Life Images for their work, I love it!

A Short Sabbatical

This weekend past, I took another trip into Middleburg, Virginia but this time with my family to celebrate younger sister’s twenty-first birthday.

A favorite location of mine for its quiet and amazing service, for three days we stayed at the Salamander Resort & Spa. Sitting on 340 acres in the heart of the city, it’s the perfect haven of recreation of relaxation with activities to suit persons of all ages. Take a peek at a few of my favorite shots from that lovely couple of days!
