February Finds

I saw, I loved, and I took….from my mom’s frame collection 🙂

My new beautiful Burberry scarf!

I found the block letters for about $7, and the blue vase from a thrift store for $1. There’s nothing better than inexpensive, fun finds. Oh and the fake flowers, I claimed I mean borrowed from my sister.

Being my sister’s maid of honor, I’m in charge of planning her bridal shower. I checked out Etsy for homemade, creative invitations.  I found this store Good Frau, and instantly loved her style. I decided to stick to my sister’s wedding colors for the invitations, and it turned out great!

Back to Basics

On Sunday, one of my good friends and I spent the day in Washington D.C., and had a pleasant time venturing around the Eastern Market. I love going to flea & farmers markets and supporting local businesses because you never know what to expect! These people are so creative, and you find so many treasures. I would have brought home some furniture, but the car wasn’t big enough so I picked up some apples and homemade soaps. Here’s a link to the website http://www.easternmarket.net/.

Being around local & organic food most of the day, I had to check out the restaurant Founding Farmers. It’s a kind of restaurant that follows the “farm to table” trend and I loved it! There’s a picture from dinner below!

As we were walking back to the car, I walked past an alley, and had an urge to take some pictures. It might be silly to some people, but I love the cobblestone road, and the deserted feel of the alley  In the pictures below, I’m wearing some basics I believe every girl should have. You need  a standard black pea coat, colorful scarfs, and jeans you feel comfortable in.

Me being goofy, ha ha. 🙂

It was delicious!
