Hi guys! Happy Tuesday! Over the weekend we found this cool spot in Georgetown, DC. It's a cliff over looking the Potomac that has graffiti everywhere. Getting here was a bit tricky in heels but hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! And having a husband that carries you helps too ;) Overall, it's a really cool spot.

I really love the crop top and high waisted bottom trend. Now that it's cold out I've been getting my fix with cropped sweaters. I bought this black one from Express when everything was 40% off. (This sweater also comes in white and blue.) I added a faux leather collar shirt for an extra layer and my favorite statement necklace as the finishing touch.
 
Hope you guys like :) Talk to you soon!

So I guess its safe to say Winter is officially here? I mean with all the snow and all. LOL
 
I love how pretty nature looks with a little snow. Everything looks so peaceful and bright. I even don't mind the cold. As long as I'm bundled up of course! This was our first time shooting with snow and it was a lot of fun.
 
One down fall with it being so cold out is trying to show off your personal style while wearing a coat. It's hard trying to be cute when it's 20 degrees out. That's why statement outerwear and cold weather accessories are so important. I love wearing colored jeans and/or corduroys with a neutral coat because it adds more color to what can be a bland outfit. And don't forget to add those hats, scarves, and cool gloves! :)
