August Insta Recap

{Insta @TheBobbedBrunette}

Necklace: c/o Hanuel, Crop Top: H&M (similar here)

Happy Monday! I cant believe August is over and sooner rather than later we will be saying good bye to our swim suits and hello to pumpkin spice everything.

Today I give you another recap of some of my favorite Insta snaps as well as extra info I didn't share here on The Bobbed Brunette.

This month my Q&A for one of my favorite places in DC, The Yards, went live on their People Profile. Some of the things we talk about are what to do when you have nothing to wear and 3 tips for budget conscience shopping. You can read the Q&A here!

You can also get my favorite s'mores dip recipe here.

Life in Astana: Food Diary Pt. 2

Hi guys! Today I'm sharing another photo diary from Kazakhstan. I'm such a huge foodie and we continue to discover great restaurants here in Astana. It has definitely made the transition easier. I hope you all enjoy these photos. Happy Tuesday!



Summer Voyage




Back to Black

Leather Jacket: Nordstrom (old), Midi Skirt: H&M $50 (Old), Bag: Charles Keith (gift but similar here), Heels: Target (old)

It's no secret that black is my favorite color to wear. It's just so sleek, chic, and easy. With today's look I wanted something edgy yet feminine. When I think of those two words the first thing that comes to mind is leather and midi skirts. So that is what I did ;)

Everything that I'm wearing I purchased a while ago but, I have linked some similar pieces below.

Happy Friday Eve!


The Beginnings of Fall

Jacket: H&M $50 (currently on sale for $30), Jeans: Express: (old), Flats: Target $28 (old)

I don't think Astana received the memo about August being the hottest month of the year. Luckily I packed some of my favorite jackets, like this textured weave coat from H&M. It is currently on sale for $20 off its original price and it also comes in different colors and patterns. I've linked it above with the outfit details. Happy shopping!
