Festival Week: Marshalls

It’s no secret I am a huge fan of Marshalls. Some of my best closet assets consist of Marshalls finds like this dress, jacket, and blouse. It only felt natural to partner with them for Coachella and have YOU be a part of it too! In honor of festival week I am giving away five Marshalls gift cards here on the blog (each worth $50) and giving away five at Coachella this weekend to those with #fabfound festival style.

HomeGoods Headquarters + Design Challenge

Last week, I was lucky enough to attend a HomeGoods blogger conference at the TJX headquarters in Boston.

Lately, I have been really drawn to neutral tones like nude, white, and tan.  As fashion trends come and go, neutral tones are always a closet staple — especially if you’re going for a more classic look. Definitely will be incorporating more nude and blush looks into my wardrobe this spring. Hope your week is off to a great start.

Snow Day

Another snow day in DC as we all await the arrival of spring. This weekend was great, filled with brunch with old friends (Rosa + Katalina), and catching up on Oscar movies like American Hustle and Philomena (find my best dressed recap on instragram here)!
