Gelato and a Movie at Union Market

Happy Friday!! Today's post is kind of a part 2 of Tuesday's post. I wanted to share with you guys where I was when we took those photos.
 
One of the many reasons why I love Instagram is that it allows me to find new places that I would have never known existed. What did we ever do before hashtags?! LOL Union Market in DC is one of them. It's a year-round indoor market featuring 40 local artisans. It has so much to offer and is still in the process of growing. When it's complete it will be a mix of retail, restaurants, hotel, and entertainment. What also makes Union Market unique is the addition of 2 of my favorite places, Dolcezza and Angelika Pop-Up. Dolcezza is a coffee and gelato shop. This location happens to be the actual Gelato Factory & Coffee Lab. Just opened this Summer, the Angelika Pop-Up is a three screen micro cinema right next door to Dolcezza. It's temporary while they build the permanent Angelika Film Center. If you have never been to this film center, you must. There are some in TX, NY, and VA. As well as some affiliated cinemas. If you like fancy, you'll love this movie theater. The Pop-Up location at Union Market is so cute and trendy with a lounge area and tons of vintage movie posters. If you're in the DC area make sure to make a trip here. Make it a gelato and movie night and show your same-day ticket stub to receive 10% off your gelato purchase. ;)

Happy Tuesday!
 
Kimonos, AKA long cardigans, have been very trendy lately. They might need some getting used to for some but I think they are super cute. I especially love them with swim suits (kinda like a cover-up), shorts, and short dresses. I found this awesome one at Forever 21 for just $25. It's a great piece to add to a simple look.

Hope you all have a great week!

 Today's look is all about simplicity. Simple hair, minimal makeup, and an easy outfit have been essential these past few days with the heat. Trying to wear the least amount of clothes while still looking classic and chic can be tough. I like to go for light weight clothing that isn't too fitted. Nothing is worse that being hot and sticky in tight clothes. And monochromatic looks are super easy and chic.
 
Happy Thurday!

Ball Game in Philly

Hey guys! Hope everyone had a great weekend and a not so sucky Monday. Over the weekend Angel and I did a mini road trip to Philly. It's one of our favorite cities to visit. This was our 3rd time there together and thought it would be fun to watch the DC Nationals play the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. This was my 2nd time ever attending a baseball game. First time actually "watching" it! LOL 

On Sunday we went to the city for some brunch, bought some wine and cheese at the local farmers market, and took a walk through their shopping district.

Crop It Like It's Hot

Crop Top C/O Swell, Pants: Forever 21 $16 (Similar here), Shoes: Target $20 (Currently on sale for $15), Necklace: H&M (old) Bag: Marc Jacobs

My official mascot for Summer is the crop top. They're super trendy and go with just about everything. Now I'll be honest, I would have never worn a crop top a few months ago. But, ever since I started working out regularly (#crossfit) I feel more confident and honestly now have a drawer fill. This black one from Swell is definitely one of my favorites. I love the sexy back and it's super comfortable.
 
Now, I'm still not ready to bare my whole midriff so these high rise printed pants are perfect. Forever 21 has a ton to choose from and they're all super affordable.
 
Oh, and don't mind me. This weather makes me a bit crazy, in a good way! LOL Happy Friday Eve :) Talk to you guys soon!
